Here is our guide on how to unlock the MG 55 and Mag Upgrade in Days Gone. This LMG is capable of firing 115 rounds after you equip the extended magazine. It’s called a magazine even though the weapon is belt-fed in real life. This gun takes a top spot as one of the best Weapons in Days Gone.

Introduced to the world by the USA in 1967 originally called the M60 Machine Gun. A tactical military-grade weapon with low recoil so it can be fired from a standing position.

While playing Days Gone we come along with another Storyline called Horde Killer. Deacon must travel on his bike exterminating massive hordes. In the beginning, it will be difficult with the arsenal you have. As you progress you will get higher tier loot and skills to match the threat against you.

Unlock Extended Mag Upgrade

The LMG magazine upgrade increases the mag from 75 bullets to 115 giving Deacon 40 extra ammo per reload. Eliminate 85% of the hordes and this enhancement is yours.

A very noticeable change in firepower. Switching from a rifle to a shotgun in the middle of a fight is when it’s most obvious. Sacrificing some accuracy for more sustained DPS up close.

Final Thoughts

MG 55 with Extended Mag feels like a cheat code was enabled. Mowing down everything in sight. The only drawbacks would be accuracy at medium to long-range and ammo consumption. Ammo is easy to manage but can get expensive when bought from a vendor instead of looting a police car or ammo box. Have fun, this weapon is a blast to use.
