The top 5 Airsoft Support Weapons
The appeal of this support weapon is in its design and its history as a replica of a weapon used by the USA in both World Wars as well as the Korean and Vietnam War.
The rifle is made completely of metal yet features a dark wood furniture kit that gives it a realistic look, geared towards making it look exactly like the original.
It weighs 5kg even without having an in-built bipod and so is one of the heavier weapons to carry around without an integrated bipod to set it down on.
The MK1 is a full metal support weapon which gives it its sleek and realistic looking design.
It comes with an integrated bipod so that you can set it down and take up a position to provide cover for your team by continuously firing at the enemy.
This is helped by a generous 2500 round drum magazine and a quick change spring system so that you won’t be losing time constantly readjusting or reloading your weapon.
The adjustable stock can help you to spread your fire as far or as close as you want depending on the situation.
Like the MK1, The MK46 is a full metal support weapon with particular attention paid to the design to make it look like the real thing.
Overall there isn’t much to choose between this and the M1 as they share a lot of the same features and cost the same.
It comes with an integrated bipod, 2500 round drum magazine, quick change spring system and the adjustable stock just like the M1, providing the same benefits.
The MK46 just gets the edge on the MK1 because of the ability to mount the grip, making it easier and more comfortable to hold.
Overall, it may just come down to a case of which one you like the look of the most as appearance is one of the only things they differ in.
This is a full metal support gun that comes with a number of features to make it one of the best support weapons on the market.
The magazine can hold a whopping 5000 rounds but that isn’t the only good thing.
There is also an option to have it continuously wind.
It is one of the heaviest guns around at over 6kg so it may weigh you down but once you stop to use it, you will feel the full benefit of it.
This support gun fires at a fair rate of 300FPS but it is the features mentioned above which make it stand out and worth the investment.
This rifle’s full metal design makes it sturdy, durable and a replica true to the original weapon.
With a box magazine of 2400 rounds and a rapid velocity of 390FPS, you can lay siege to your enemies with firepower as you halt their fire and allow your own team to advance forward.
The 14mm front threading allows for the attachment of accessories for your support weapon and to switch up the flash hider to suit your needs.
Targeting opponents and hitting them accurately is helped further by an adjustable hop-up as well as a top rail for red dot targeting or scopes to be added.
