A minigun is a rapid fire, air-cooled, multiple barrel firearm capable of firing upwards of 3000 rounds per minute (RPM). It is carried in combat and tactical situations for heavy fire support.
Made from alloy, in either a 3 or 6 barrel configuration, reload is by way of a 500/900 round clip which fits to the under side of the weapon.
The rate of fire for the minigun means it will be a weapon chosen in combat for either heavy fire support or tactical fire and suppression.
