The Parabellum MG14 was a 7.9 mm caliber World War I machine gun built by Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken. It was a redesign of the MG 08 (itself an adaptation of the Maxim MG) system intended for use on aircraft and zeppelins. The Parabellum MG14/17 is a follow up to the MG14 with a thinner air jacket, redesigned controls and added mounting rail for telescopic sights.
There are two variants of the Parabellum MG14/17: Standard and Suppressive. The Parabellum MG14/17 is the basic variant of the rifle. The Parabellum MG14/17 Suppressive features double the ammunition, a bipod, and an optic as its default sight, allowing superior long-range accuracy when set-up.
- As the weapon uses non-disintegrating links, the reload of the weapon changes depending on how many rounds the player had fired. Firing a few rounds will show the player spinning the belt drum one time to retract the belt, firing many rounds will show the player spinning the belt drum two times, and firing all rounds will show the player removing the depleted belt entirely to place a new belt drum.
