In Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam, the XM22 is a light machine gun issued to the Medic kit. It seems to perform much like the M249 in the base game, with its 200-round capacity and high rate of fire. It also has the same firing sound as the M249 in the base game, but has a slightly different reload sound. Despite having the fastest firing rate of the three LMG's in the expansion it also has exceptionally low recoil and can be very useful for achieving kills in hardcore mode. The sights are very clear and enable it to be used for long range burst firing.
