The DP-28 is a light machine gun type weapon in BATTLEGROUNDS. Manufactured in Russia, its Russian name is ‘Пулемёт Дегтярёвa Пехотный Pulemyot Degtyaryova Pekhotny,’ translating to ‘Degtyaryov’s infantry machine gun.’
A slow but hard hitting machine gun, its distinctive 40-round pan magazine strikes a balance between the firepower of a full-power cartridge with the support capability of a machine gun. Its slow cyclic rate of fire means that its relatively strong recoil is somewhat manageable. Being a vintage weapon, it lacks attachments, being only capable of accepting sights up to the 6x scope, allowing greatly increased range for supporting fire.
The bipod can be enabled by going prone, greatly reducing recoil compared to firing from a standing or crouched position, allowing more precise shots against distant targets.
The DP-28 will deal maximum damage out to 50 meters, with damage falling off out to 298 meters, at which point bullets will do minimum damage.
