The Ares Shrike 5.56 is an air-cooled, dual-feed rifle for semi or full-auto configurations that fires the 5.56×45mm NATO cartridge. The Shrike 5.56 can be supplied as a complete weapon, or as an upper receiver “performance upgrade kit” to existing M16-type service rifles and carbines.

It appears as the LMG-E in several installments of the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Franchise. The weapon itself is modeled and named after the Krytac Trident LMG Enhanced, an airsoft gun based on the same weapon.

Siege[]

"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]

Overview[]

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.

Pros[]

  • Average rate of fire
  • Very high ammo capacity
  • Low recoil

Cons[]

  • Subpar damage per shot
  • Steep damage dropoff
  • Weak suppressor damage

— In-game description

The LMG-E is a light machine gun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction. It is available for use by Zofia and is unlocked for Ela at Operator level 6.

Overview[]

The LMG-E performs in a similar manner as its counterpart in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It features an incredibly high capacity of 150 rounds. Combined with its manageable recoil and moderate damage output, it is a great weapon for dispatching a large group of enemies at once.

Pros[]

  • Average rate of fire
  • Very high ammo capacity
  • Low recoil

Cons[]

  • Subpar damage per shot
  • Steep damage dropoff
  • Weak suppressor damage

Trivia[]

  • 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.
