Machine Guns in Destiny are Heavy Weapons that are capable of taking out large groups of enemies single-handedly. These rapid fire brutes are known for their high rate of fire and large magazines. If they have one drawback, it's that they generally have poor Stability. Starting from Uncommon quality on up, Machine Guns begin coming with Upgrades that further enhance the weapon.
All Heavy Weapons require Purple Ammo in order to use. This ammo is much more rare than White or Green.

Note: Archetypes are sub-weapon classes within each weapon type. Guns of the same Archetype share fixed stat ranges on every stat. The stats are not the same for each gun, but all the guns in each Archetype will fall between the ranges of the Archetype. You can use this to get a better idea of what that particular gun is good at before you even look at it.
