The Ameli is a light machine gun that appears in Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Call of Duty: Ghosts

"Fully automatic. Increased damage and range with a slower rate of fire for stability."
— Description.

Campaign

The Ameli is used by the Federation in "Legends Never Die" and "All or Nothing".

Multiplayer

The Ameli behaves similarly to the M60 and M60E4 from past games in that it has very high damage up close, consistent damage over range, a low fire rate, and moderate recoil. Its high damage output slightly offsets its very low rate of fire in close quarters, allowing for two shot kills out to a respectable range. In the right hands and with the right attachments, the Ameli can be used in a number of roles.

With Rapid Fire attached it becomes a powerful weapon in close engagements where the increased recoil won't be as much of a factor (using a Grip can mitigate this somewhat), allowing it to beat out SMGs and assault rifles due to its increased fire rate and two shot kill ability, which is about 12.5 meters long before dropping to a three hit kill. On the other hand, it is effective at long ranges as well, dropping off to only a 4 shot kill at extreme distances, the best in the LMG class. An optic such as the Tracker Sight or the Thermal Hybrid Scope are ideal for highlighting enemies across long sightlines or in difficult to see places.

Interestingly, the Ameli has a 25% recoil increase for the first 3 shots fired when the trigger is pulled, meaning that burst firing is not as useful as on other weapons; continuous fire is recommended at medium to long range in order to put shots on target easier.

Extinction

The Ameli appears in the Extinction maps Awakening and Exodus, costing $3000. Although it is somewhat comparable to the LSAT from previous maps, the Ameli has some different statistics that make it good for different playstyles than the LSAT. It has a slower rate of fire, making it good for long-range support, but also a somewhat high amount of recoil. Compared to the Chain SAW, it has a slower rate of fire still and a heavier weight, making the Chain SAW statistically better than the Ameli.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

"Fully automatic. Best in class fire rate."
— In-game description.

The Ameli returns in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare as a Heavy Weapon. It is now manufactured by the Atlas Corporation.

Campaign

The Ameli can be found in the campaign missions Utopia, Bio Lab, Collapse, Armada, Throttle and Terminus. Unlike most weapons, it has no aim assist on consoles. It is often found at spots where enemy ASTs are encountered, so that they can be dealt with by using this weapon.

Multiplayer

The Ameli is the last Heavy Weapon to be unlocked, at Level 46. It performs very typically for a light machine gun, with no special gimmicks at all. The Ameli has an average fire rate and good accuracy and range. Recoil is insubstantial. With these factors considered, the Ameli is an effective long-range weapon.

The Foregrip reduces recoil even further, almost negating any recoil. The Quickdraw Grip is also a good choice since the Ameli has a slower ADS time than most guns. The sights themselves are generally very clear and optics are not required unless the player desires increased zoom capabilities, in which case the Hybrid Sight is ideal.

Reloading with the Ameli is very time-consuming. It is not recommended that the player performs a fast reload unless the magazine is nearly empty; performing a fast reload will waste all of the leftover ammo in the large magazine. The player can almost avoid the need to reload altogether by equipping Extended Mags.
