The MG36 in real life.
The MG36 is the Light Machine Gun variant of the H&K G36 Assault Rifle. It is fitted with a 100 round Beta C-Mag magazine and a heavy barrel, and fires the standard 5.56mm NATO cartridge like the other variants of the G36 family. It has since been discontinued due to the lack of a market.

Primary Weapon

"The G36 family of weapons is an example of the new thinking in assault weaponry. They are constructed mostly of high strength polymers with metal used where appropriate. The MG36 is a light machine gun variant carrying 100 rounds in a single, dual ammo drum."
— In-game description

The MG36 appears in Battlefield 2 as the tier 2 unlock for the Support kit. It is also the Default weapon for the Special Air Service in the Special Forces expansion. The MG36 has about the same damage and accuracy stats as the M249 SAW, but with less recoil and with more user-friendly sights. However, the sight is more appropriate for urban environments while the M249 SAW's iron sight is more appropriate for more open environments. The weapon has the same firing noise, as well as the same reload sounds, as the other G36 variants.

"LMG version of the German army G36 rifle. This modern rifle is equipped with bipod, red point sights and drum magazine for faster reloading. "
— In game description.
In singleplayer, the MG36 can be found as a collectible on Crossing Over and picked up randomly from dead Legionnaire Mercenaries.

In multiplayer, the MG36 is issued to the Medic Kit as an unlockable. It has a built-in sight that has a small red dot which allows more precise aiming, but also limits the user's view as there is no peripheral vision with this scope. It has 150 round drum magazine and 300 rounds in reserve. It has stats similar to that of the XM8 LMG, but it is significantly more accurate, and is the most accurate Medic Kit weapon. It deals moderate damage and has a fairly high rate of fire.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 - MG36(00:15)
"A modified G36 equipped with heavier barrel and a 100 round magazine. This LMG fills the tactical needs when a GPMG is impractical. It places added firepower into a gun team when mission objectives require fast mobility."
— In-game description

Only available in multiplayer, the MG36 is the 6th light machine gun issued to the Medic Kit, requiring 42000 experience points to unlock.

It makes a great LMG for the Medic kit in multiplayer, as it has a built in Reflex Sight, thus freeing up a Specialization slot. Because of this, many players use this opportunity to use a different specialization. Like in Battlefield: Bad Company, the MG36 has similar stats to that of the XM8 LMG. The 4X Rifle Scope will increase the sight's zoom. The built-in reflex sight provides no peripheral vision, and it takes time to zoom, just like a sniper scope. It is recommended to fire in 2-3 round bursts while aiming down the sight, as continued automatic fire will slowly raise the weapon, taking the sight's reticle off target. By doing this, the player can more easily take down a target from almost any range.

Firing the MG36

In Battlefield Play4Free, the MG36 is a purchasable Elite light machine gun for the Medic Kit. It is a stable long range weapon with a 60-round Beta-C magazine and medium damage, but it also has more recoil than other LMG's, meaning that it will need to be fired in bursts to be more accurate down range.

Its drum magazine allows for much quicker reloading in the field, allowing users to be back in the fight sooner, rather than be plagued with a long reload time such as in the other belt-fed light machine guns. The weapon also features a clean appearance and black paint scheme on its parts, like many other LMGs after December 1 update.

"Machine gun version of the German G36. This MG model is no longer in production. It comes equipped with a bipod"
— Battlelog description

The MG36 comes along with 9 other weapons in the Back to Karkand expansion.[2] The MG36 was first seen in the Back to Karkand Gameplay Premiere Trailer with the M145 MGO and a suppressor attached.

The MG36 performs in the same fashion as the M27 IAR and RPK-74 being a magazine fed LMG with the difference that the standard magazine uses 50+1 rounds. The weapon is able to fire in fully automatic, semi-automatic, and burst fire modes; with the Foregrip and Heavy Barrel attached it maintains good accuracy at a distance, even during sustained fire, making it a very versatile weapon for both defensive and offensive Support activity.

The extended magazine attachment was removed by accident in the March 2012 patch, but has returned with the September 2012 patch.

It is unlocked by completing the "Keep Your Head Down" assignment which requires the player to:

TriviaEdit

  • In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the MG36's default reflex sight was void of its red dot on Hardcore mode, even with the Red Dot Sight or 4X Rifle Scope equipped. This was fixed as of the PS3/Xbox 360 1.04 Patch. After the patch, the MG36 also has a hip-fire aiming reticle (like all weapons in core mode), in Hardcore mode. On the PC, this has been patched in the 795745 patch.
  • In Batttlefield: Bad Company 2 the MG36's HUD icon shows it with the bipod folded however, in game it is extended.
  • In Battlefield: Bad Company and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the MG36's reload animation is nearly identical to that of the XM8 LMG.
  • As of the most recent update for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the MG36 now has the same exact damage stats as the XM8 LMG.
  • In Battlefield 3, the MG36 is the only magazine fed machine gun that gets a 100% capacity increase from extended magazines, contrary to the 33% increase of similar guns.
  • The MG36 master dog tag in Battlefield 3 shows the version with the built in reflex sight, featured in Battlefield: Bad Company and Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
  • The MG36's reloading animation in Battlefield 3 can be incorrect at times. When reloading with ammo still in the magazine, the bolt carrier assembly can be seen slowly moving back towards the rear position when the magazine is removed. When a new magazine is inserted, the bolt moves back towards the forward position without the character releasing the bolt like he does during the empty reload animation.
