The Heavy Plasma MG is the Mammoth's signature weapon. It is a minigun-like weapon similar to the Heavy MG, but with a few major differences. The Heavy Plasma MG's rate of fire is significantly lower than the Heavy MG's, but the plasma rounds deal almost twice the damage. This results in an overall higher damage per second if all the rounds hit. However, the plasma rounds move fairly slowly, spread at longer ranges, and have a noticeable arc. This makes the effective DPS of the Heavy Plasma MG significantly lower on fast moving or distant targets.
The secondary fire launches multiple rounds at once, similar to a shotgun. These rounds snare targets hit by the projectiles.
