The multi-barrel or “Minigun” would be a terrifying machine to be on the wrong end of. With six barrels capable of firing up to 4,000 rounds per minute, this is a massively powerful and destructive weapon. The downside being, as is often the case with powerful weapons, that it is quite heavy and cumbersome. But, when the situation calls for it, this is truly one of the most powerful weapons around.

You may have seen these weapons mounted on helicopters before to lay down a lethal amount of bullets. Its hard to run away from a weapon like this that has long range, rapid-fire capabilities and laser like precision.

    People probably get this idea from movies, where you almost always see people either successfully running from minigun fire or being missed at close quarters.

    Impressive, especially at night. Had one operating next to me at Big Sandy. You could feel the ground vibrate as you lay there.
