A PUBG player enjoyed the power of the M249 one last time before its nerfed by PUBG Corp. While it's easily one of the most broken guns in the game, it was rarely used because it only spawned in loot crates. Then PUBG Corp had the bright idea of adding it to the ground loot table without any nerfs to the weapon.

To the surprise of no one, the gun was immediately abused by everyone as its insanely accurate for the rate of fire and never seems to run out of bullets. Just watch this clip and you'll understand.

Redditor user kilamitee posted the clip of the bridge hold with a M249. While a jeep drives by with four enemies, kilamitee unloads onto the vehicle, and misses the initial spray, but it doesn't matter.

They continue to shoot, never pausing to re-aim, and unload on the jeep. The spray isn't the most controlled, but the weapon has such a large mag, they just keep shooting. Eventually, they grab all four kills and blow up the jeep.
