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.
There are currently two versions of the Madsen MG known to be included in Battlefield 1, which was first seen during the EA Play livestream.
Madsen MG TrenchEditThe Madsen MG Trench is one version of the weapon. The Madsen currently has the highest fire rate among LMGs, with the Trench version being geared towards improved hipfire handling. 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.
Madsen MG Light InfantryEditThe Light Infantry variant is fitted with a foregrip, granting slightly better recoil control and aimed accuracy at the cost of some hip-fire accuracy.
