Appetite for Destruction
The Appetite for Destruction is a named variant of the M739 Light Machine Gun. It is featured in Halo 5: Guardians as an Uncommon REQ variant of the SAW, reusing the latter's chassis but with additional green and red stripes decorating the weapon's body, along with a falcon emblem in front of the drum magazine.
Halo 5: Guardians
The Appetite for Destruction is a Level 5 Power Weapon REQ with an Uncommon rarity. It grants 75 REQ Points when sold. The weapon functions exactly identically to the regular SAW except that it has a larger magazine of 108 rounds, larger ammo capacity, and attached Stabilization Jets to drastically reduce vertical recoil. These improvements allow users of the weapon to destroy enemy infantry more easily while avoiding any accuracy penalties, as the Stabilization Jets help shots to stay on the target. When paired with a Damage Boost, the Appetite for Destruction can annihilate anything up to and including light aircraft.
Changes from the M739 Light Machine Gun
The weapon's name is a reference to the Guns N' Roses debut studio album of the same name.
