About this mod

Upgrades the UAC/5 to work more like a proper multi barrelled cannon i.e. rapid fire!!

Permissions and credits
UAC/5 Minigun

This mod upgrades the standard UAC/5 so that it works more like a real multi barrelled cannon. There is also a version with NO JAMMING!

Original UAC/5
1 shell every 0.2 seconds
4 shell burst
1.5 damage per shell
0.25 heat per shell
Total Damage: 4 x 1.5 = 6
Total Heat: 4 x 0.25 = 1

UAC/5 Minigun
1 shell every 0.05 seconds
12 shell burst
0.5 damage per shell
0.083 heat per shell
Total Damage: 12 x 0.5 = 6
Total Heat: 12 x 0.083 = 0.996 (meh! close enough!)

I have also swapped the audio effect to the AC/10 Burst sound effect which fits quite nicely.

Range, tier mods etc all remain the same as the original UAC/5.


Download the zip file and extract the single file (MW5Mercs-WindowsNoEditor427.pak) to your MW5Mercs\MW5Mercs\Content\Paks folder.

You may need to edit the number at the end of the filename if it conflicts with any other pak files you may be using.

Important Information

This mod replaces the standard UAC/5. It does not add a new UAC/5  so any mechs currently equipped with a UAC/5 will benefit from the dakka dakka!
