Using the Vulcan Cannon
Modern Warfare 2
The M61 is only seen twice; once in the mission "
Of Their Own Accord," and the Special Ops mission Big Brother. Both times, it is equipped with 20mm explosive rounds and is mounted onto a Black Hawk helicopter.
The gun functions almost identically to that of the
M134 Minigun; it is accurate, has a high recoil, and requires spooling of the barrel before being fired - thus, it can be pre-prepped in singleplayer by using the aim button.

The words " GAU 5" are printed on the gun.
It cannot be pre-spooled in Big Brother, due to the aim function being used to slow down the helicopter.
Bullet casings can be seen being ejected from the side of the gun; although, only a small amount of bullet casings are actually ejected when compared to the amount of bullets fired in the same time.
The player's hands cannot be seen while using the gun.
