Laguna's Machine Gun in Final Fantasy VIII.

The Machine Gun (マシンガン, Mashin Gan?), also known as SMG (サブマシンガン, Sabumashingan?), is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy series. It often appears as a stand-alone weapon, but is also the signature weapon of Laguna Loire.

Final Fantasy XV[]

Rapidus SMG is a weapon for Prompto used when character-swapping and in his downloadable episode. In his episode, the player must acquire the weapon from defeated enemies or find it from the environment, and after it runs out of ammo the player must procure another one. In the main game, it is always available in the weapon wheel, but after it runs of out ammo, it takes a moment to "recharge". The Windows and Royal Editions have an accessory for Prompto that gives his machine gun infinite ammo: The Clever's Talisman.

The SMG has 100 bullets and is aimed and fired in a first-person perspective with the same buttons as the handgun, and it does not lock onto targets. While aiming, Prompto can quickly sidestep a short distance in any direction with the dodge button. Upon fully consuming it, Prompto must wait 15 seconds for it to recharge, and it will only recharge during battle and while he is being controlled. It does not gain his equipped handgun's passive effects and suffers a damage penalty when shooting from further away. Its damage scales with Prompto's Strength stat and the shots will spread after 10 consecutive shots are fired, and will spread even further after 30 consecutive shots.

In addition, Prompto can use the Flagrum SMG during his episode while riding on a snowmobile. The Flagrum SMG has infinite ammunition, locks on to targets, and almost always hits, though its damage is significantly lower.
