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.

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.
