"The VMG bridges the gap between a rifle and an LMG. Its strong mobility traits and fastest reload in class allow players to play a bit more aggressively that usual with an LMG."
— Description

The VMG 1927 is a light machine gun that was added in Call of Duty: WWII with the Shadow War update.


Initially, the VMG and the Proto-X1 could only be obtained through the Wanderlust basic training, but following the Covert Storm event they were made available for selection in the Divisions.
