The M-249 is a light machine gun chambered for the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge round. It made its first appearance in Incident: 001A, when one l33t agent used it to fire dozens of bullets at Hank; however he was killed by Hank's dual Berettas.
A larger carbine version without the stock was used by Hank in Madness Combat 10: Abrogation, before being disarmed by the Auditor. It is seen to have tremendous firepower, tearing several enemies in half and easily dispatching a Mag Agent: V4 in mere seconds.
The machine gun also appears in Madness: Project Nexus. It is the most expensive weapon in the game due to its 200-round capacity with rapid fire. In the Version 1.7 update, the M-249 became "nerfed" due to it being too powerful. Carrying the gun now reduces the player's dexterity, and rifle perks no longer apply to the weapon.

|Extreme capacity! Reloading is a pain in the ass, but chances are that everybody will be dead before you even need to reload.|
In Version 1.8 of Madness: Project Nexus, the laser sight upgrade does not appear attached while the gun is equipped. The missing laser sight is only visible while it's being reloaded, while it's on the ground, or in the shop.
