The Bren, commonly called the Bren gun, is a British machine gun used by the British Army and Canadian Army in game.

Call of Duty and United Offensive Edit

"The Bren is an excellent machine gun in the role of squad support. Its large size limits mobility, but allows it to deliver accurate automatic rounds when fired while prone."

CampaignEdit

The Bren gun is the British support weapon of choice. It does high damage, killing in just three shots or less, and has a 30-round box magazine. Its has moderate recoil, but tap-firing can negate this. Its ammunition can become quite scarce. It is very versatile, combining the rapid fire of the Sten with the range of a Lee-Enfield, making it useful in both close quarters and mid ranges. However, its major drawbacks are its relatively long reload time and its weight, slowing down the player's movement considerably. The Bren gun is available to the player during the Pegasus and Car Ride missions. The Bren gun is Sgt. Waters' main weapon during the level V-2 Rocket Site.

MultiplayerEdit

The Bren gun is issued to the British faction in multiplayer. It does more damage than its German and American counterparts, killing in one shot to the head or chest, and with almost nonexistent recoil, but with a slightly lower rate of fire, longer reload time, and a fairly large blind-spot where the magazine protrudes upwards. It is fairly good in close quarters, only matched by submachine gun users, and can easily take on everything beyond close range except at extreme distances where a sniper rifle is more suitable.

Call of Duty: Finest Hour Edit

"The Bren is an excellent machine gun in the role of squad support. Its large size limits mobility, but allows it to deliver accurate automatic rounds when fired with its bi-pod deployed."
— Manual description

The Bren gun appears in Call of Duty: Finest Hour in the British Campaign, specifically in "Mission: Matmata", "Depot Saboteurs" and "Raiding the Fortress". The Bren is a fairly decent weapon and boasts high accuracy and damage. However it has a slower rate of fire and a small magazine, compared to other machine guns. Like all machine guns in Call of Duty: Finest Hour it has a deployable Bipod which is usable while prone, improving the player's accuracy but inhibiting movement.

CampaignEdit

The Bren gun is the British support weapon of choice. It can deal one-shot kills and fires fairly rapidly, although its ammo can become scarce. In addition, its recoil is high and its reload is lengthy. It is given to the player as a starting weapon during "Hold the Line".

MultiplayerEdit

The Bren gun is issued to the British team. It will kill with one shot to the head, but otherwise needs three bullets to kill. Its magazine can create a large blind-spot to the right side of the player's vision, and its reload is fairly long. It cannot top submachine gun users or long-range snipers, but anything in between is free game.

"Caliber .303 light machine gun. Based on the Czech ZB vz.26 light machine gun. Employs a top-feeding 30 round curved magazine. 450 rounds per minute with a range of 300 yards."
— Bonus materials description

CampaignEdit

In Call of Duty 3, the Bren extremely powerful and precise, with clear iron sights and low recoil. It can kill enemies in one shot, so it is advised that the player conserves ammunition. Aiming down the sights takes little time, making it very effective in both close-quarters. The reload time is relatively short, but not as short as the Thompson or MP40 reload times. Ammunition is somewhat scarce.

MultiplayerEdit

The Bren is not available in multiplayer.

Hud bren

The Bren gun was originally supposed to appear in Call of Duty: World at War, however, it was scrapped along with the British campaign. Only a Create-A-Class image, pickup icon, animations and uncompiled weapon files remain in the Mod Tools. In the campaign, the weapon was to appear with bipod and without it. It was most likely replaced by the Type 99, as both share remarkable resemblance.
