This article describes a Pixel Gun 3d weapon. If you are looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see Best Friend.

The Machine Gun, formerly known the "Simple Machine Gun", which was formerly called the "Best Friend", is a Primary Weapon. As of 8.2.1, the Machine Gun can be utilized in multiplayer and is now used as a starter primary for beginners. Earlier, it could only be accessed in Arena, Campaign, and Deadly Games modes.


It is a synthetic black submachine-gun, with a red firing selector near the center. It has a shoulder stock and a straight magazine. 


It has low damage, high rate of fire, medium capacity and average mobility.


  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • This weapon is fairly accurate, back off to avoid anyone attacking back.
  • The Simple Machine Gun has a small magazine size. Take cover when reloading or finish off the target with a secondary weapon, such as the Pixel Gun or the Signal Pistol.


  • Jump and run around to avoid getting hit by too many shots while trading blows with an SMG or rifle.
  • Alternatively, this weapon deals low damage per shot, so charge the user with a close-range weapon, such as the Simple Shotgun.
  • Users of the Simple Machine Gun won't have very much staying power, as the small magazine size will impede them from entering too many fights. Retaliate when they reload.
  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.





Supported Maps

None, because this weapon performs poorly in any map.

Weapon Setups

Have a lethal long ranged weapon with a large capacity.


  • The Machine Gun is based on the real world Heckler & Koch MP5A2 due to the full stock added.
  • Although the AK-48 seems to be much more powerful than Machine Gun if noticed in the stats, the Machine Gun actually kills enemies faster than the AK-48.
  • This was added into the Armory as a beginner weapon in the 8.2.1 update.
  • As a beginner weapon, its default ammo is restored automatically after the player dies. This trait is shared with the Pixel Gun, Simple ShotgunSignal Pistol, Simple Flamethrower and Sniper Rifle, this is because this weapon is one of the weapons the game unlocks in the start. But nowadays, all weapons also had its ammo refilled after the player dies.

  • In some modes/minigames, the Machine Gun can be occasionally found as a pick-up.
