—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Machine Gun, formerly known as the "Simple Machine Gun" and "Best Friend" (ordered from newest to oldest), is a Primary Weapon. As of 8.2.1, the Machine Gun can be utilized in multiplayer and is now used as a starter primary for beginners. Earlier, it could only be accessed in Arena, Campaign, and Deadly Games modes.


It is a simple, black submachine gun. It has low damage, high rate of fire, quite a high capacity, and low mobility.


It is a synthetic black submachine-gun, with a red firing selector near the center. It has a shoulder stock and a straight and black magazine.


This weapon automatically shoots bullets with instant bullet travel time and a medium range.

When reloading, the player takes out the black clip and replaces it with another one. It has no delay mechanics.



  • Aim for the head to increase damage.
  • This weapon is fairly accurate, back off to avoid anyone attacking back.
  • The Machine Gun has a small magazine size. Take cover when reloading or finish off the target with a secondary weapon, such as the Pixel Gun or the Signal Pistol.
  • Try to replace this weapon as soon as possible as this is very underpowered when going against armored (steel or above) players.


  • Jump and run around to avoid getting hit by too many shots while trading blows with an SMG or rifle.
  • Alternatively, this weapon deals low damage per shot, so charge the user with a close-range weapon, such as the Simple Shotgun.
  • Users of the Machine Gun won't have very much staying power, as the weak damage will impede them from entering too many fights. Retaliate when they reload or use a stronger weapon like the Desert Eagle
  • Pick off its users from long ranges.
  • if you are an experienced player that has created a new account and is playing with newbies, use your skills to your advantage as starters are normally very inexperienced.
