Battlefield 4 machine guns tips
While Battlefield 4 machine guns are excellent at providing suppressive fire, they’re much more versatile than that. Machine guns such as the M27 IAR are effectively large assault rifles, making them more useful in in different conditions. In BF4, the suppression effects have been increased for machine guns, which makes it even more useful to provide covering fire.
Heavy machine guns are quite accurate, which gives them a lot of range, especially when paired with a powerful scope. The Bipod is a great accessory for machine guns, as it compensates on the recoil and adds to the accuracy and range of the weapon. Keep in mind that suppression is more effective in the game when coming from a machine gun.

Like other weapons, Battlefield 4 machine guns have their own unlocks. They range from scopes, to silencers, to bipods which can be setup up on any surface. The way to earn unlocks is to simply earn kills with the same machine gun. The more kills you have with the same gun, the more unlocks you get.
