The Starfield Microgun is one of the many weapons in Bethesda’s huge new RPG. Discover Microgun stats, info, and more in our weapons database.

First seen during the Starfield Direct showcase, the Microgun is Starfield’s own minigun. Smaller than its Fallout counterpart, the Microgun spits out ammo at an exceptionally high rate of fire, turning most enemies into paste within seconds. It is, however, very ammo hungry as a result, so save this one for bosses or large groups of enemies.

Fire rate: 350

The Microgun has a baseline fire rate of 350, though the speed at which you reload will ultimately determine how close you can get to this rate of fire. Accuracy determines the spread of your gun, with lower accuracy weapons having more spread than others.
