In-Game Description

Far Cry 5

The Hours of Darkness variant, the M60 V is more visually related to the Vietnam-era original model, but otherwise statistically identical.

The M60 V can be customized with several optical sights, suppressors, and an extended magazine, but lacks any form of skin option.

Far Cry New Dawn

Rusty M60

"This gun is understated, and also deafening."

In-Game Description

Far Cry New Dawn.

The Rusty M60 is the first Light Machine Gun that the player acquires, and the least powerful of the other weapons in the Light Machine Gun category. It's a Rank 1 weapon and quickly becomes of little use. Perhaps due to its decayed nature, the reload is noticeably longer than normal.

Makeshift M60

"A great gun if you love bone-shaking kickback and mowing targets down like grass."

In-Game Description

Far Cry New Dawn.

The Makeshift M60 is the second Light Machine Gun the player acquires. It is a Rank 2 weapon, and is stronger than its rusty counterpart. This gun appears to be held together by a rope tied around the middle of its body with metal fixtures holding them in place, including a paperclip, an elastic band and duct tape on its stock, as well as a makeshift scope.

Trivia

  • The text of the M60 makes a reference to Sylvester Stallone's titular action movie character John J. Rambo; notably the film Rambo: First Blood, Part 2.
  • The M60 V was added to the Far Cry 5 base game at the release of the Hours of Darkness expansion as an ownership reward.
  • The text of the M60 V mentioning the Medal of Honor is a nod to how many of the Vietnam-era recipients of the medal used a machine gun - both the US M60 and Viet Cong machine guns - in the actions that earned them the medal. As with many recipients of the medal, many of them were posthumous.
  • The M60 used in the base game is actually based on the E4 variant while the M60 V is based on the original M60[1]
