The MG42 was probadly one of the best Machines guns during the War.It saw combat on all fronts and some are still being used today.The MG42 also influenced the design of Modern Machine Guns.The Mg42 earned the Nickname of "Hitler's buzzsaw".This gun became the most infamous guns during World War 2.The sound of it firing scared Allied Soldiers.The MG42 replaced the MG34.The MG42 even saw action with Iraqi and Coatliton Soldiers in Desert storm.It did have problems with overheating.It's orignal designation was the MG39.People started when it was adopted in 1942.This weapon was so efficent that the United States army made training films on how to deal with the sychological trauma of facing the weapon in battle.

Yes well he became addicted for using his MG42 for doing everything! From cutting his hedge to butcher his chickens. Once he wanted to shave with it his SS-Guards thought he was going to far and took it away from him, after that he started playing with cyanide which became fatal to him and his playmate Eva Braun.
