The MG34 (Maschinengewehr 34[1]) is a machine gun featured in Call of Duty: United Offensive, Call of Duty: Big Red One and Call of Duty 3. It also makes a brief appearance in Call of Duty: Black Ops III, and is available as a mounted weapon in Call of Duty: WWII.

CampaignEdit

The MG34 is the Axis' machine gun of choice. It utilizes 75-round drums and does fairly good damage. It has low recoil and a pretty high rate of fire, making it very versatile, as it can engage both long and close range targets, but its reload time is very long. It also appears as a mounted weapon in some levels.

MultiplayerEdit

This weapon is the German light machine gun in multiplayer. It is largely the same as the other light machine guns, in the fact that it fires from a 75-round belt and deals high damage with high accuracy, but has a long reload time. It has a higher rate of fire than the other light machine guns, but with less damage than the M1919. However, its damage is the same as the DP-28 Soviet light machine gun. It can kill in one shot to the head or three shots to the body.

This weapon is found in the level An Easy Detail and Farewell to Friends. It is similar to the M1919A6 .30 cal, in the sense that the playable character immediately goes prone and mounts the bipod when aiming down its sights, though mounting it takes much longer than the M1919A6. It can also be mounted on small obstacles, like through a window or in a bunker. It has a 75 round drum magazine, a high rate of fire, and high power, as it can take down an enemy in a few shots.

— In-game description

The MG34 appears in Call of Duty 3.

CampaignEdit

In the level "The Mace", several MG34s can be found. Like the M1919A6 .30 cal, the MG34 is incredibly powerful and can kill in 1-2 shots. The MG34s in this mission have plenty of ammunition.

MultiplayerEdit

The MG34 is only available for the Axis. It performs near-identically to the M1919A6, including the fact that the playable character automatically drops to the prone position whenever they aim down the sights. The MG34 has somewhat clearer iron sights than the M1919A6, making it easier to use at longer ranges. The reload time is quicker than the M1919A6's. However, when using the bipod, deployment time is slower than the M1919A6.
