Miniguns/Gatling guns

Postby Pwnerade » Fri Jun 17, 2011 5:03 pm

Do you guys treat miniguns differently than normal machineguns? Or do you just put on extra barrels because it looks cooler?

well how the way I do mini-guns is the full auto rule(ie you shoot every thing in a arc depending on how far you turn two finger or three finger etc for spread) but its times two so two shots per target and you don't have te reload
but the downside is you need a high skill role to hit (if its not mounted) and it slows you way down

I have a question that's semi-related to this thread.

What's the difference between a minigun, a chaingun, and a gatling gun. I always thought a gatling gun was just the term used for any gun with multiple spinning barrels, but these terms get tossed around so much, I'm not sure what means what.

The Gatling Gun is the hand-crank powered weapon developed in the 1860's. Multi-barreled machineguns are also called Gatling guns. Another name for them is rotary cannons. Minigun is the name for one specific weapon, the M134 Minigun. It's called the Minigun because it's of a smaller caliber than the M61 Vulcan (7.62mm and 20mm, respectively). However, people say minigun to mean other multi-barreled machineguns.

Chain guns have only one barrel, but are externally powered, instead of being driven by the gas pressure or recoil from firing, like in a normal machinegun.

Glad to be of service. Wikipedia tends to have detailed articles on weapons, for future reference.

Every 5th round is a tracer, not 3rd.
