- "Use that Machine Gun to blast the whole lot of 'em!"
- —Falco Lombardi
The Machine Gun is a standard weapon available in Star Fox: Assault. It fires rapid shots, which is good for racking up damage. Machine Guns can be found just about anywhere, even some enemies will drop them. It has a more powerful counterpart, called the Gatling Gun.
The Machine Gun is modelled after an Uzi.
Pressing and holding the A or R button will allow the gun to fire until the entire clip of ammo is depleted.
It is useful against vehicles for its accuracy, and for its rate of fire.
Use against more heavily armed enemies in Versus Mode is an effective, though risky move. The Machine Gun's high rate of fire can prevent an opponent from getting a shot off and drain his or her health very effectively. However, the user should beware of agile opponents. Up to 999 rounds can be obtained from picking up 5 Machine Guns. Even though the capacity would be full from picking up more than 5, it can prevent opponents from taking them.
- When Wolf wins a round in Versus Mode he unleashes two Machine Guns from behind him, says "Victory is mine!" and starts to fire. Combined with his artwork, this would suggest that it is his favourite weapon.
- Shooting enough Sentry Bot 3000s will cause a Machine Gun to be dropped, allowing Fox to hold out until his rescue by Falco.
