Description
Being a small nation, Sweden is likely outnumbered in any battle, so it’s important that a Swedish soldier, with a single trigger squeeze, can take out 10-20 enemy soldiers. Therefore, we introduce the KSP 58 “Kulspruta” (trans: “bullet sprayer”).

The Ksp 58 light machine gun is a primary weapon in PAYDAY 2, added in the CrimeFest 2015 Day 5 update.

OverviewEdit

The Ksp 58 is, in essence, very similar to the KSP of the Gage Weapon Pack 02, having roughly the same statistics in almost every category, only being slightly more accurate and powerful than its DLC counterpart.

The Ksp 58 has the distinct advantage of being a non-DLC weapon and having a very low level-lock, thus granting everyone access to a fairly powerful weapon very early on.

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • Very high rate of fire and reasonable damage
  • Massive magazine capacity
  • Excels at rapidly killing Bulldozers
  • Large ammo capacity makes it effective for long jobs with little ammo supplies
  • Low reputation lock
  • Very good ammo pickup

Cons:

  • Long reload duration, made worse by the lack of a tactical reload
  • Requires a laser sight mount for it to be effective at accurate aiming
  • Poor stability and low accuracy limit effective range without modifications
  • Heavy horizontal recoil
  • Somewhat expensive for new players
  • High rate-of-fire burns through ammo quickly, especially during protracted stand offs, if one is not adept at using the weapon in short bursts
  • Very low Concealment that cannot be effectively enhanced with mods
  • Limited mod pool

TipsEdit

  • It is barely usable beyond very close range without a Tactical Laser Module, not having any aim reticle and horrible accuracy.
  • Zooming will tighten the spread, which helps with concentrated fire.
  • The Lion Bipod is recommended if the player wants to cover a chokepoint.
  • The weapon can be "reload-canceled" by aiming, firing, or doing just about anything when the ammo counter reads 200, the final few frames will skip and the Ksp 58 will be ready to fire.

SkinsEdit

  • According to the Hungry Wolf's description, the weapon was made by Wolf himself, apparently his "dream project".
    • Written on the stock of the Hungry Wolf is "Räkna till tio", reading "Count to ten". Additionally, there appears to be a shopping list written on the weapon's receiver, reading "Coffee, milk, butter, egg, potato potato potato potato potato potato".
    • Despite being based on a Ksp 58, the skin's Steam Community Market and FBI Files descriptions claim it is a modified KSP.

TriviaEdit

  • The Ksp 58 is based on the M240B, an American-made variant of the FN MAG 58 as evident by its short flash hider, railed feed cover, carry handle design, sights and shape of the stock. It is painted in the Swedish Army's distinctive green lacquer in the game and is named after their official designation of the MAG.
    • Like the Brenner 21 and Buzzsaw 42, the Ksp 58 is classified as a general-purpose machinegun in reality due to it chambering a battle rifle cartridge (6.5x55mm Mauser for the "real" Swedish Ksp 58; 7.62x51mm NATO for the MAG, Ksp 58B and other international variants). Interestingly, the written-out form of MAG (Mitrailleuse d'Appui Général) literally means "general-purpose machinegun".
    • The in-game magazine capacity of 200 does not match that of any known MAG variants. The largest fielded magazine size is 100 rounds.
      • The ammo belt still visibly has rounds loaded after the weapon is emptied, and can be seen when reloading.
