History

The Johnson M1941 LMG was designed by a Boston Lawyer and a Captain in the USMC reserves during the late 1930s. During WW2, the Allied Special Forces asked for a LMG that was lighter, more maneuverable, while having the same accuracy and firepower of a BAR. Thus, small quantities of the Johnson LMG were given to Special Forces soldiers operating behind Axis lines. The First Special Service Force also known as the Devil's Brigade received the weapon and it became an overwhelming favorite.

Gameplay

A direct upgrade from the M1918A2 Automatic Rifle, the Johnson M1941 LMG has an extra 2 Damage Close Range, an extra 10 Damage Far Range, and 55 more Rate of Fire compared to the M1918A2 BAR. But still having the same reload time to the Tier 1 LMG, and also with the ability to 4 Hit Kill at all ranges with a user using Heavy Set Gold. Although the Johnson M1941 LMG cannot equip a scope like the Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 , an upside to it is that it's available to all U.S Infantry and Paratroopers as a non-captured weapon.

The Johnson M1941 is more of a Mid-Range Weapon due to its 3-4 Hit Kill ability. And with it being friendly to newer and beginner players to veteran players due to little to no recoil, it could give the STG 44 which is commonly employed by the Germans a run for its money. Although the 20 Round Magazine will not allow you to spray and pray when you enter a room.

The sights used by the Johnson M1941 LMG is also very similar to the FG 42 (Fallschirmjägergewehr 42) as since they both have peep hole sights.

Cons[]

  • Magazine Size: Although it has a magazine size of 20 Rounds, it may not be enough to eliminate 3 full Infantry Squads within a room.
