Trivia

  • This is based on the M134 Minigun, which in real life is a derivative of the earlier M61 "Vulcan" autocannon, as a weapon meant to be mounted on helicopters and tanks. The first version of the Mac Minigun was used during the US civil war. It had to be hand cranked to fire.
    • In real life, it would be impossible to carry a Minigun by yourself, because of the weight (weighing 19 kg for a portable version, and 39 kg for the standard version) and the fact it runs on a power source. The model in Pixel Gun 3D could have an internal power source and lightened ammunition load and lighter materials, which could relate to the fact that the Automatic Peacemaker doesn't have as dramatic of the effect as it would in real life.
    • But unlike the M134, it has 4 barrels instead of 6.
  • It has the highest ammo capacity in the game.
    • Because of this, the Automatic Peacemaker is one of the few weapons to not have any reserve ammunition for game balancing.
  • It used to usually compete with the Laser Cannon prior to its removal because they both had high fire rates.
  • It is one of the weapons replaced the old Automatic Peacemakers, especially the former Automatic Peacemaker M3.
  • Before version 8.2.1, it was called "Automatic Peacemaker M3" and had two upgrades (Automatic Peacemaker M1 and M2).
  • As of version 8.2.1, its predecessors have been removed and it later received two new upgrades in the 9.0.4 update, the Automatic Peacemaker Up1, and Automatic Peacemaker Up2.
  • The price of the Peacemaker is now 300 instead of its original 200. This can be due to complaints of it being overpowered; to balance the gameplay.
  • It usually competes with the Crystal Laser Cannon, because they both have high fire rates.
  • It used to have a different texture. It was mainly gray with bands of yellow, and with the second upgrade with orange.
  • The ammo has been nerfed from 175 to 100 rounds in the latest update.
    • It was reverted to 175 in the 12.5.3 update.
    • Its counterpart Champion Peacemaker have 25 shots less.
    • It was reverted to 100 rounds in the 13.4.0 update.
    • The release of the 15.1.0 update and the subsequent removal of the Combat Level system, the Automatic Peacemaker's stats was reverted to its 13.0.0 stats. It has regained its status of the highest ammo capacity in the game once again.
  • In the 14.1.2 update, this weapon was severely powercrept along with other old weapons that the Developers deemed begone with the whopping 35 headshots kill!
    • Later on from the 15.1.0 Update, it got significantly buffed to 17-20 headshots kill.
