| Cut content|
The subject of this article, MG4, has been cut from the final version of Battlefield Hardline.
The MG4 was a weapon cut from Battlefield Hardline. Its textures, weapon image, and customization files were all included in the Open Beta, suggesting it was likely cut very late in development, possibly after light-machine guns were moved from the Enforcer kit to Battle Pickups. Its texture file is identical to its Battlefield 4 counterpart.
- In Battlefield 4, the MG4 is the only gun in the game which has the emblem featured in two different places on the gun, as seen in many of the pictures. Every other primary weapon only has one spot where the emblem is visible.
- In Battlefield Hardline, the HK51 License patch shows the MG4 instead of the HK51.
