The Shuko K-80 LMG is a light machine gun featured in Battlefield 2142. Like the Bianchi FA-6 LMG, the Shuko is invaluable in providing suppressive fire. It shoots smaller, nitrocellulose-molded caseless ammunition, allowing it to have a higher magazine capacity at the cost of stopping power.

In Battlefield 2142, the Shuko K-80 LMG is the standard light machine gun of the Pan-Asian Coalition Army Support Kit. It boasts a very high magazine capacity and rate of fire with low recoil, which drops further while prone. Just like Bianchi FA-6 LMG, it becomes more accurate the longer one fires, but it can cause the barrel to overheat, rendering it inoperable for several seconds.
A mounted variant of the Shuko is present in Strike at Karkand 2142, and it functions similarly to the infantry version, with the exception of the lack of recoil and infinite ammunition.
