The Huot Automatic Rifle is a light machine gun that was developed by Joseph Huot in 1916 during World War I. It is an automatic conversion of the Canadian Ross straight-pull bolt action rifle. The war ended before the weapon entered service into the Canadian Army and only four are known to have been built.
In Through Mud and Blood and Nothing Is Written, there is a variant known as the Huot Automatic Optical, available from weapon crates. It functions similarly the Low Weight variant but features a lens sight as its optic and doesn't have the quicker accuracy regain.
There is currently only one variant available for Multiplayer: the Low Weight.
It is available for purchase upon reaching Support level 10.
The Huot Automatic features a bipod, can easily regain accuracy due to its low weight and has a 25 round drum magazine. Compared to other light machine guns, it is almost identical to the Lewis Gun, but trades accuracy for control. Despite this, whether the bipod is being used or not, the Huot has excellent recoil control, making targeted suppressive fire and headshots easier to achieve.
It should be noted that it uses the Automatico M1918's "ring sight" optics as it's default iron sights option and the Lewis Gun's version of the AA sights.
