The M240 Machine Gun provides Marines with a continuous and high rate of fire to engage long-range targets. It is a heavier automatic weapon than the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) but provides a faster rate of fire and a longer effective range.

The bipod is always attached and is suitable for use while patrolling.
