The Minigun is Commando's tier 5 weapon. This hand-held 6-barrel fully automatic cannon offers its operator excessive fire power at cost of massive weight and reduced mobility. For such a beast of the weapon the Minigun has magazine size of only 90 rounds, which is likely done for balance purposes, however it can be compensated by skill choices of Commando. Its massive weight of 10 units is also greatly reduces choice of sidearms to use along. The spin up is needed prior to firing, however by holding the aim button player can keep its barrels moving. In such fashion player walks at slightly reduced speed compare to normal ground speed.

The Minigun is a DLC weapon. In offline solo play this weapon is only available for players purchased it from the in-game store, however should the player owning this weapon join the public server it is become available to everyone as a shared content.

Notes

  • In PC version of the game, for testing purposes players may acquire this weapon by typing following cheat commands in console while in solo play:
    • EnableCheats
    • GiveWeapon KFGameContent.KFWeap_Minigun
  • Highest tier Commando weapon, has no upgrades available.
  • Player walks 20% slower while spinning up the barrels. While firing movement speed is set to (standard) 40% of the default (unaffected by skills, weight and health) walk speed as if player was ADSing.
  • It is possible to sprint while maintaining barrels moving (although at 20% reduced speed). To do so player have to press and hold ADS button first and then press and hold sprint button. With just Minigun in the inventory player without movement bonuses will be moving at about: just walking - 358 units /s, walking and spinning at the same time - 287 u/s, sprinting and spinning - 344 u/s.
  • Spin up time = 0.70s.

Trivia

  • Can deal up to 20160 damage with full ammo (630) capacity as off-perk weapon.
  • Has one of the highest ROF in game.
  • It actually takes 0.7s to spin up its barrels opposite to 1.5s stated in description.
  • Upon initial release used to have no specific damage type allowing it to inflict full damage to any ZED. Later it got changed to Ballistic_AssaultRifle. To compensate that base damage was raised from to 32 to 35.
  • Oddly enough in third person player actually holds Minigun on the left side of their body (left arm on trigger, right arm on the grip), while in first person it is a right handed weapon.
