The Heavy Machine Gun featured in Battlefield 1 as a static machine gun emplacement uses the Maxim as its model. The weapon has unlimited ammunition but will overheat if constantly fired for long enough, forcing the player to stop firing until it cools. The carriage-mounted version of the gun is fitted with a bulletproof gunshield to protect the user, however those fitted with pintle mounts have no shield. The turret has limited traversal, unlike the other emplacements.
The Maxim gun is also used on various vehicles, such as the air defense stations on the Airship L30.
The Maxim MG is seen in every level in the campaign, used by both enemies and allies. They are mounted on the ground (with or without shield) or on vehicles. The ground-mounted Maxims can be used by player if the gunner is killed or leaves his position. In Storm of Steel it is used by Hellfighters to defend their positions (one is used by player).
