Machine Gun never miss their target when they shoot.
When attacking using Hellfire, Machine Guns (and other AA units) prioritize the missile more than aircraft, thus enabling the aircraft some time to attacks except for thunderbolts (Machine Gun baiting).
Below are the priority targets of the Gun Turret, from the highest (0) to lowest (6):
3.Other air units
- With a new update, Machine Guns now displays muzzle flash from both of its barrels when it attacks, although it fires only a single stream of bullets instead of two.
- Machine Guns can be outranged by units (depending on unit level) such as Razorbacks, Paladin Tanks, Challenger Tanks, Hellfire tanks, Mega tanks, and Snipers.
- Gun turrets stand no chance against heavily armored troops, such as paladins, challengers and mega tanks.
