General Information Edit

The Machine Gun can be a very good starting defense as it deals a reliable DPS to both air and ground units, especially when grouped with other MG turrets and buffed by a Transformer. It is the most commonly used turret for players of any level. Tank-role units are effective in soaking their DPS, but not enough to deal with other MGs unless accompanied by other tanks.

Strategies Edit
