Machine Gunner kit icon

The Machine Gunner is one of the kits available in Squad. Each faction has their own version, equipped with a standard weapon common to its army.


The machine gunner's role is a somewhat specialized role in Squad. Unlike its lighter cousin, the automatic rifleman, the machine gunner is designed to provide suppressing fire at a longer range, with each general purpose machine gun (GPMG) featuring sights that zero beyond a kilometer. There is a limit of two machine gunners per team to emphasize their specialized purpose.


  • Machine gunners should look for an effective firing position where they can cover a specific angle, or large open area.
  • Suppressive fire should be used in combat at all times.
