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 you fire but it can cause the barrel to overheat, rendering it unoperable 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 a lack of recoil and infinite ammunition.
