The MG34 is a German machine gun designed by Heinrich Vollmer in 1934. It fires 7.92x57mm Mauser ammunition at a rate of approximately 850 rounds per minute. It was often mounted onto vehicles; German tanks would use them as co-axial machine guns. They also found use as anti-air guns due to their extremely high rate of fire. Soviet and French forces captured many during World War II, and through trading, found their way into use by the Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese forces.
In Battlefield Heroes, the MG34 under the name "The Landmaker" is a newly available weapon for National Army Gunners. It was released as a part of the World War II theme map Inland Invasion like D-Day or Normandy. The weapon iself is basically just another reskin of the "Uber Default MG" with added recoil and better critical hit damage.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2: VietnamEdit
In Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam, the MG34 is mounted on North Vietnamese Army (NVA) vehicles, specifically the GAZ-69 and T-54. It provides a very high rate of fire, of 900 rounds per minute, and as such is very effective against light targets. It is issued specifically to NVA vehicles to be used as an anti-aircraft weapon to counter the U.S. Army UH-1 Iroquois as the NVA lacks its own helicopter.
