The M2 Browning Machine Gun, commonly known simply as the Browning Machine Gun or the M2, is a heavy machine gun used by the HECU and the Black Ops in several areas of Black Mesa.

OverviewEdit

  • Manned by a single person, it is used on a tripod to provide fire support and/or fortify crucial points, such as important locations of the Materials Transport or other areas of Black Mesa.
  • Most of the time, sandbags around the tripod and armored shields on the barrel provide additional protection to the gunner, although the shields actually provide no protection at all.
  • The weapon has infinite ammo and the added protection of the fortifications behind which it is usually found. However, the turret imposes a limited firing arc, and one is exceedingly vulnerable from the lanes that the gun is unable to cover.
  • During Half-Life, Gordon Freeman is able to turn it against HECU soldiers, notably in the Black Mesa Transit System.

TacticsEdit

  • Enemies using the M-2 are easy to kill, as they are immobile while using it. A Mk 2 Grenade or a MP5 Grenade is enough to kill the enemy manning the weapon.
  • Presence of the machine gun usually indicates a likely wave of enemies; the machine gun should be manned as soon as possible.
  • The M-2 is extremely powerful, firing five rounds in the head or chest area are required to kill a H.E.C.U Marine most efficiently. However, constant awareness is required, the player should be ready to demount from the weapon as soon as they are overrun or attacked from behind.
