When it comes to building the best loadout to achieve success in Call of Duty multiplayer, the Light Machine Gun (LMG) category is regularly overlooked in favour of assault rifles and submachine guns.

While some LMG's are unpopular, some possess incredible damage outputs that can contend with the most popular guns in the game. With Modern Warfare 2 on the horizon, many are waiting for intel on multiplayer following leaks of Killstreaks, Perks, and Field Upgrades.

RAAL MG Call of Duty History

The RAAL MG made its first appearance in Call of Duty in Season 5 of Modern Warfare. Despite its somewhat compact size, its slow rate of fire saw players stay clear of the LMG in favour of fast-firing alternatives.

It had a high output of damage but it never made a splash in the multiplayer meta despite the Gunsmith containing a huge range of attachments to modify its performance in close-quarters and long-distance engagements.
