"Compact package belt-fed AR, with a 150 round box. Lays down a fierce medium-range suppressive fire."
— In-game description

The LMG-E is a light machine gun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, introduced in the Operation White Noise expansion. It is available for use by Zofia.[1]


The LMG-E features an average fire-rate and damage output for a light machine gun. With two bullets the LMG-E can take down Light Armored Operators, but will require three in order to take down Medium and Heavy Armored Operators.

The LMG-E also comes with an incredibly high capacity of 150 rounds. Combined with its manageable recoil, the LMG-E is the perfect weapon for applying suppressive fire.


  • Moderate rate of fire
  • High ammo capacity
  • Versatile attachments


  • Subpar damage per shot
  • Steep damage dropoff

  • The same LMG model based on the Krytac Trident LMG Enhanced also appears in Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands as the "MK249".
  • As the Ares Shrike is a closed bolt AR-platform machine gun, it would technically have a +1 capacity during tactical reloads.
    • However, for some reason during tactical reloads, the operator pulls the charging handle after loading a new belt. This voids the +1 capacity since the chambered round would be ejected, and thus the fixed 150 round ammunition capacity is still technically correct, although the ejected round is not visible. Whether or not this was intentional is unknown.
