Tips using M249 Phoenix
- 100 rounds of M249 Phoenix can inflict 18k-37k damage to zombies in Zombie PVP modes.
- At maximum default damage, 1 round of M249 Phoenix can inflict 41k-80k damage to bosses in Scenario modes, which is on par with Battle PGM Hécate II.
- Note that the secondary fire mode has poor overall performance with the exception of damage inflicted.
Ditto, B mode
- This is the first machine gun to be included in the Transcendence Series.
- The zoom feature is similar with most Buff Rifles.
- This weapon has the same buff effect as AUG Guardian in Zombie Scenario (+5 Ammo level).
- The idle sound is practically a mixed version of AUG Guardian's and Dual Sword Phantom Slayer's B mode idle sound.
- It uses the same muzzle flash as M4A1 Dark Knight.
- The shooting sound is the combination of M249's with a clinging metal sound.
- The reload style is identical to SKULL-8's.
- The phoenix cry that play when the player is out of bullet is actually the sound of Red-tailed hawk.
- After an update in South Korea on July 12th 2018, the secondary mode was changed from a simple zoom to firing laser (similar to CHARGER Series), doubling its damage and halving its fire rate as a result.
- The laser fire sound is accompanied by a unique phoenix sound effect and the laser will leave a phoenix mark on the object it hit.
