the Madsen MG in reality

The Madsen Machine Gun was a light machine gun designed in Denmark and first issued in 1902, making it the world's first light machine gun produced in significant quantity. First adopted by the Danish Army the weapon would be later sold in 12 calibers to 34 different countries, including France, Germany, Italy and the Russian Empire. Although expensive to produce it was recognized for its reliability, and as such remains in the service of a few armies to this day.

This item has a Codex entry: Madsen MG
"A magazine fed machine gun, the Madsen MG has seen service for over a century"
— In-game description

The Madsen MG is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1 for the Support kit. The detachable box magazine, which fits into the top of the weapon, can be a slight distraction. It greatly obscures view while aiming down sight, along with the action handle.


The Madsen MG is the most common LMG in campaign. Its Light Infantry variant is standard weapon of Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian support units. Its Storm variant can be picked up from weapon crates in every level excluding Storm of Steel.


Three variants of the Madsen MG are featured in multiplayer: Trench, Low Weight, and Storm.

The Madsen MG Trench currently has the second highest fire rate among LMGs after the BAR, being geared towards improved hipfire handling.

The Madsen MG Low Weight recovers both spread and recoil faster than the other two variants. It also has a bipod like the other Low Weight variants.

The Madsen MG Storm variant is fitted with a foregrip, granting slightly better recoil control.
