Best Battlefield 2042 LCMG Loadouts: Playstyle
The best Battlefield 2042 LCMG loadouts are a great choice for mid-to-close-range combat, but shouldn't be entirely ruled out for those longer ranges. Your primary advantage here is the large magazine size, so you want to try and get in those flanking spots that allow you to take out as many enemies as possible. As such partnering the LCMG with Battlefield 2042 MacKay allows you to grapple up to ledges and get in behind the enemy. You don't want to be running around too much however, as you will lose out to an SMG a majority of the time when it comes to speed. That's why laying down some suppressive fire can also be a great tactic on those more open planes.

When you aren't letting go of the trigger with your best Battlefield 2042 LCMG loadouts, you want to ensure you can see your enemy clear as day. That's why we'd recommend the UH-1 Smart 1.5x when you are working with a run 'n' gun playstyle. For something a little longer ranged the Ghost Hybrid 1.25x-2.5x or the Bravo 3x will line everyone up nicely. Mixing up the ammunition you want Close Combat, High-Power, and Armour Piercing for your run 'n' gun, distance and vehicle suppression. Again the LS-1 Laser Sight, ADR Bipod and BCG Light Grip underbarrels mix up ranges, along with the Extended Barrel, Warhawk Compensator and a 6KU suppressor for effective flanking.

The best Battlefield 2042 LCMG loadouts are excellently paired with the Recoilless M5 or C5 Explosives and the Prox Sensor or EMP Grenade depending on which range you are playing at. Playing a little further afield could draw the accidental attention of rolling tanks looking for a tank. Along with some armour piercing rounds, the EMP grenade can disable weapons, allowing you to move in for the C5 finisher. Whereas the Prox Sensor allows you to prepare for that ultimate flank all the better with a M5 Recoilless for pesky passing vehicles. Lastly we have our secondary weapon, and there isn't a more powerful one out there than the M44.
