Unmodified, the weapon serves as an intermediate between the [[MG34#Battlefield V|MG 34]] and the [[MG42#Battlefield V|MG 42]] in terms of accuracy and controllability, primarily due to its fire rate of 830 RPM. Unlike the other MMGs however, the VGO is magazine-fed by default leading to quicker reloads, with the standard 60 round pan being slightly larger than the belt on its contemporaries. Per-shot recoil is towards the higher end of the MMG range. Accuracy when the [[Bipod#Battlefield V|Bipod]] is undeployed is consistent in its weapon class, being generally poor, but its high fire rate can be useful against close range targets when firing from the hip is unavoidable.

— In-game description


The VGO is a weapon featured in Battlefield V. It was introduced tor the Support kit during the first week of Tides of War Chapter One - Overture.

The weapon serves as an alternative to the MG 42 within the "Close Range MMG" subcategory, with the two weapons having an identical damage model and similarly high rates of fire and poor levels of controllability. At 830 RPM, the weapon has a slightly longer time-to-kill in exchange for a marginal reduction in vertical recoil. Unlike the MG 42 however, the VGO is magazine-fed for quicker reloads, with the standard 60 round pan being slightly larger than the belt on its counterpart. Accuracy when the Bipod is undeployed is consistently poor for its weapon class, but its high fire rate can be useful against close range targets when firing from the hip is unavoidable. It is possible to overheat the VGO before its default magazine is exhausted through uninterrupted firing, as this occurs after a 51-round burst.

The specializations that the VGO has access to increase its control and general effectiveness. The left side of the tree has the Recoil Buffer, which reduces its vertical recoil to 0.975; Flashless Propellant, removing muzzle flash allowing greater precision and increasing obscurity at a distance; and Light Bolt boosts the fire rate from 830 RPM to 981 RPM. The right side of the tree improves reload speed by 15%, allowing one to go back into the fight quicker after each reload, especially with how fast one burns the ammo; Ported Barrel noticeably decreasing horizontal recoil; and Extended Magazine increasing the 60 round magazine to 100. The last two specializations are Incendiary Bullets, which increases its damage versus aircraft; and Chrome Lining, which increases the firing limit from 51 to 66 before overheating.

Trivia

  • Due to a bug, the Bipod on the VGO was not visible originally. This was fixed in the January 19th Update.
