(Hmm. Maybe. Or it's a model inconsistency, who knows.)
(Trivia: The X-91 is in .308. It is unlikely that the in-game G8A1 is supposed to represent a 5.56mm conversion. It is far more likely that the V308 has the drum modeled bigger.)
Line 43: Line 43:
*When compared to the [[V308]], the use of significantly smaller drum magazines would suggest the G8A1 is being used in a 5.56 NATO magazine-fed configuration, a possibility since the HK21's design allows for modular caliber conversions.
*The G8A1 is modeled with the X Products X-91 50-round drum magazine.

"GSG 9 LMG, accurate in short range. Capable of long range controlled fire."
— In-game description

The G8A1 is a light machine gun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is available for use by GSG 9 Recruits, the GSG 9 Operator IQ and the APCA Operator Amaru.[1]


The G8A1 has a fast firing rate and utilises a 50-round drum magazine, allowing it to reload faster than those that use belt-feed systems. Combined with its fast firing rate of 850, this allows the G8A1 to shine with the assault rifles, to an extent, whilst giving much greater firepower.
