The Minigun is a machine gun in Dead Trigger.



The Minigun is one of the three machine guns. It is the strongest of the three. The Minigun has a high rate of fire, high ammo capacity, high damage, and high accuracy. There are no sights, and it takes a little over a second to wind the barrels. Since the 1.5.0 update on all platforms the Minigun's ammunition could be replenished.

The Minigun is best used as a last resort and rarely as a primary. In case the player gets trapped in a corner or alley, the Minigun is great way to get out of those sticky situations.

The player should also be wary of the fact that the Minigun, at later levels, leaves a lot of crawlers. These crawlers, if have not crossed the playing-area barrier, will die when they touch the barrier. However, if a zombie gets crippled to the point that they have no legs, they are difficult to notice, considering they blend in with zombies that are actually dead, which could cost the player an objective if they aren't eradicated quickly.

The Minigun is highly effective against boss-type zombies such as the Hulk and Zanta. Despite being a machine gun, this weapon has an uncharacteristically low recoil and tight firing pattern, which makes it easy for the player to perform headshots or targeted dismemberments when ADS-ing (aiming down sights).


The Minigun has three tiers to upgrade to. With the initial purchase, and upgrades, this gun is priced at a grand total of Shop icon 2399 on the iOS version. On the Android Version, it is Shop icon 2269.
