The Heavy Machine Gun[1] is an object that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is a gun-type weapon usable to both enemies and the player.


The Heavy Machine Gun is gray with a meter-long frame and an even thinner meter-long barrel. It possesses a dark gray butt stock, as well as a hand-sized grip on the bottom with a box-shaped magazine in front of it, and a front sight on top.


In gameplay, the Heavy Machine Gun can only be found in certain Stages. They can be wielded by GUN robots who will use them against the player.

Heavy Machine Guns can be dropped by defeated GUN robots that wield them or released from containers. Touching them will make Shadow pick them up automatically and pressing PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX (whether on the ground or in mid-air) fires them. Holding down PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX makes them fire continuously shots as well. As a gun, the Heavy Machine Gun can shoot enemies from a distance (targets within range will be automatically targeted). It has as well high damage output and a long attack range. A Heavy Machine Gun has a total of thirty shots and once those run out, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another thirty shots by picking up another Heavy Machine Gun.
