Locations

Can be crafted from any weapons workbench after the plan is obtained.

Behind the scenes

The light machine gun appears to be based off of the MG42[1], with a drum magazine and bell shaped flash hider. Rust is visible showing the wear and/or age of the weapon.

References

  1. The editor ID of the light machine gun is shown to be "MG42", and the plan to craft the light machine gun is called "Plan: MG42 light machine gun", therefore it can be extrapolated that the weapon is indeed influenced by the MG42.
