The FG-42 was invented in 1942, hence the name. it is a selective fire between semi, and full automatic, with a 20 round boxmagazine (The game model uses the 20 round clip, but forces an extra 12 into it. Same story on CoD world at war.), which fires 8mm Mauser, or 8X57. The standard bullet load was 170 grain Spitzer bullets, traveling at about 2500 feet per second. 800 rounds per minute, it was developed for German paratroopers, who wanted a light MG that wasn't as absurdly hungry as the Mg-42. Some variations were strictly semi auto, and featured a scope. All had a bipod.
