"Welcome to the field test of our new and improved MMG 9000: Massacre Machine Gun!"

MMGJ18
Level 1-5

Summary

  • The MMG 9000 is an improved version of the Machine Gun.
    • It has the same mechanics as a Machine Gun, but the MMG has higher hitpoints and damage, as well as longer range and no blind spot.
  • It appears on Lt. Hammerman's base levels 50 (2), 55, and 60 (2).
  • This Building cannot be built by the player.

Upgrade Differences

  • The MMG 9000 does not have any visual differences between levels.
  • At all levels, the MMG 9000 is a quadruple-barrel Machine Gun with a stone base. The main body is made out of metal. A small red scope is seen on the top. A handle is also visible at the top. There are two ammo drums at the top that seem to have two cables connecting to the middle.

Offensive Strategy

  • Warriors, Critters and Riflemen can be deleted in seconds with the MMG's high DPS at close range. Unless supported by Shock Bombs and in overwhelming numbers, they cannot take on the MMG at all. It can still deal heavy damage to most other troops, so beyond Shock Bombs, it's better to simply go around.
  • If you must tackle MMGs directly, use Tanks, Grenadiers and Bombardiers, as their long range indirectly reduces the MMG's effectiveness, with the Bombardier being able to barely outrange it. For Tanks and Grenadiers, Medics should be brought along to heal up any damage done by it.
    • If Tanks are not available, Zookas can still take it down with assistance from Heavies. Just beware that MMGs can occasionally hit Zookas behind Heavies.

Trivia

  • The MMG 9000 shoots 10% faster than a normal machine gun.
    • It is also the second fastest-firing Defensive Building in the game. At first place is the Shock Blaster and in third place is the Machine Gun.
    • However due to the reload times of the Shock Blaster, the MMG 9000 has the fastest fire rate overall, at 11.1 rounds per second as opposed to the Shock Blaster's 7.7.
  • This weapon's full name is the Massacre Machine Gun 9000. Lt. Hammerman reveals this information when the player discovers his level 50 base.
  • The MMG 9000 is encased in titanium armor according to the Villager who reports this after Blackguard transmissions are intercepted during the early stages of the campaign.
  • The quote after destroying Lt. Hammerman level 45 Base suggests that Colonel Gearheart is the creator of MMG 9000.
  • The MMG 9000 used to sometimes appear on Operations, but later, Supercell removed them from appearing in them.
  • The defense's name could possibly be a reference to the BFG 9000 weapon from the DOOM franchise.

^All shots may not hit, so the game's stated damage per second is approximate. Accuracy improves as targets move closer.
