The '''M2 Browning''' is an American heavy machine gun designed in 1918 by John Browning. It has been the primary heavy machine gun of the United States Armed Forces since the end of World War I and is still in service in Iraq and Afghanistan. It continues to be used by its customers due to its reliability and because of the .50 BMG cartridge the weapon uses. It can literally amputate and explode limbs once its .50 BMG catridge is in contact with enemy fighters because of the cartridge's incredible size.
==Battlefield 1942==
In ''[[Battlefield 1942]]'' the '''M2 Browning''' is the primary heavy machine gun for the Western Allies: the [[United States of America|US]], UK, Canada and the Free French Forces. It is mounted on the [[M4A1 Sherman|M4 Sherman]] and [[M3 Half-track]] on cupola mounts, on the turrets on the [[B-17 Flying Fortress|B-17 ]] and [[SBD Dauntless |SBD rear]] facing ring mount and can also be found mounted in bunkers or on sandbag walls.
Compared to the [[MG42]], the M2 offers more damage per bullet, and is more accurate overall, but has a considerably lower rate of fire. This makes it more effective at range, but less effective against groups of enemies.

==Battlefield Vietnam==
In the base game, dual M2 Brownings can be found in the front-gunner's seat of the [[PBR]] patrol boat. Given that they are 2 machine guns, they have a high fire rate and are thus extremely effective in taking down enemy helicopters, light vehicles and infantry. They are, however, prone to [[Overheat|overheating]].
In ''[[Battlefield Vietnam]]''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s WWII mod, the Browning is the [[USMC]]'s heavy machine gun. It can be found in the same places as they appeared in ''Battlefield 1942'': mounted in defensive positions and on vehicles. It is mounted on the [[M4 Sherman]], the [[M3 Half-track|M3A1]] and the [[LCVP]]. Its performance is identical to that of the [[M60|Stationary M60]] in the base game.
