I am later in the game and am not sure what weapon to use as my heavy weapon? M60 or Minigun? Which is stronger on the PC version? Please help me.

I'd go with the minigun every day of the week. I think the rocket launcher might be the only weapon that can match it when it comes to destruction.

I really dont know, m60 is the one you buy from Phil cassedy ( some like that ) right? I think m60 coolest gun in the whole game and choose it over mini gun but thats cuz looks and m60 seems more rare ( no weapon cheat ). I forgot the ammo of minigun but if its over 100 rounds ( i think 500 ) its better as m60 ( 100 rounds ). Both weapons 1 hit kill as i remember but minigun maybe better/faster against vehicles.

Yes, both are one hit kill, but the M134 (Minigun) does more damage to vehicles (or it damages faster due to its fire rate).

 

I also prefer the M60. It looks good and feels good when I use it in the game.

M60 on the Mobile/PS2/Xbox version.

Minigun on the PC version.

Well from looking at the stats, the minigun is technically better. They both have the same range, but the minigun does an extra 10 damage at 140 while the M60's damage is only 130 and the fire rate is clearly better on the minigun.. BUT, I do like how the M60 sounds so I prefer it. :3

You can't autoaim the Minigun with autoaim enabled, but you can with the M60, which is a major plus on consoles.

The difference of 10 doesn't matter, it gets one shotted as well.

Actually, the M60 does a lot more damage than the Minigun, but the Minigun fires a lot faster, so it dishes out the damage a lot faster.

^ Looking at the weapon.dat file I have to disagree. Like TheJAMESGM pointed out, the Minigun does more damage. The fire rate is identical for both weapons (the value is "1"), which is strange because I always felt the Minigun was faster.

It's the audio, it makes it seem it fires faster.

No its not. The 'firing rate' section doesn't change anything on most of the VC weapons. The animation loops is what causes the changes in the fire rate and the lower the number is in section S and V makes it faster, a higher number makes it slower. The minigun is at 12 which is REALLY fast and the M60 is at 16 which is similar to the M4 but slightly faster.

 

Statistically the minigun is better in almost every way.

M60 on every version.

It just feels more badass using it.

From what I recall on the PS2, you couldn't auto-aim with the M60, you had to use free aim same as the two other assault rifles.

The mini-gun however couldn't even be used with free-aim, instead you could only spray it horizontally.

Time for some history lesson:

 

back in 2005, VC:MP days, there were tons of hacks for it.

 

There was a hack by some russian player, you even had a place to chill with other hackers, minigun + infinite health... other players got mad.

 

Minigun owns m60s ass

(PC version) I prefer sound of M60 but over all Minigun is better for me, ammunition capacity is higher (500 vs, 100) and it can cause real mess.

I'd vote Minigun, but the M60 is great too, on the PS2 it's a challenge compared to shooting with the uzi.

 

However I always use the Rocket Launcher to finish off Lance
