* The ''Fanfic/AllGuardsmenParty'' are firm believers in solving problems by shooting them with extreme prejudice, and the more firepower they can bring to bear, the better. Heavy, Tink and Twitch are the usual suspects.
-->Our 'experiments' had established that las fire and grenades didn't do much to the shield, but since we were guardsmen we felt sure that enough faith and firepower could solve anything. We set up positions around the shield and started continuously plinking las fire into it, because when you have a fusion reactor to recharge your cells from you might as well lay down some indiscriminate suppressive fire.

* ''WildArms: Alter Code F'' had a special cartridge for Rudy to fire called Gatling Raid, which would empty all of his remaining normal attack bullets against the enemy in one massive burst of gunfire. When all of Rudy's ARM upgrades are given to bullet capacity, granting him 18 bullets in one magazine, Gatling Raid becomes a contender for most powerful attack in the game, able to deal ''six digits of damage'' to certain foes.

* The [[Series/{{Firefly}} Vera]] and its inferior copy, the Protorifle, from ''VideoGame/TwentyXX''. The Protorifle is a low-quality one that exists solely to give Hawk something to do first level; the Vera is won from surviving the BulletHell of Perforator Alpha. Both spray shots quickly, although the Vera is quicker, and both move to triple shots if you have the SetBonus from Owlhawk's core augments for extra killing power. About the only thing that keeps the Vera in check at that point is shot spread, and most bosses are physically larger than you, so even that doesn't help much.

Powerful, high rate of fire, good range and spread, and [[AwesomeButImpractical hideously taxing on weapon energy.]] Useless against bosses, but works fairly well for killing everything in the stage.

* ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'' has two flavors of Dakka: The first is the machine guns. Usually lightweight, carries a lot of bullets, standard issue.[[GunsAkimbo May or may not be dual-wielded]] for massive damage (that depends on which game you're playing). The second is the chainguns. [[GatlingGood Folded Gatling guns]] that require you to kneel (unless in a quadruped or tanks) before firing. But otherwise also carries a lot of ammo and is at least 3-5 times as destructive as a machinegun. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Combining the two isn't very hard to do]]. There is one little catch though. This being Armored Core, in which every bullet fired costs you something, wasting ammo is a surefire way to racking up debts in missions.

* ''VideoGame/HellgateLondon'': The Bulletspammer is a marksman build that relies on a pair of rocket gatling pistols, for a base firing rate of 1200 rounds per minute. The Multishot skill briefly multiplies all fired rounds by 3 for a total of 3600 rounds per minute. The Rapid Firing skill only reaches a maximum RoF multiplier of 235%, but can be done sooner, more often, with a damage bonus and in massive, room-clearing spreads. Rebounder skill improves the chance that stray rounds find another target, as do Ravagers which allow a single round to find up to two other targets.

** The player may employ Gatling guns and mounted machine guns themselves. In an era where most people are still relying on lever-action rifles or revolvers, this ends up as just plain unfair. The "[[StormingTheCastle Assault on Fort Mercer]]" mission illustrates this beautifully, as John, at the control of a hand-cranked Gatling gun, effectively annihilates the {{Mook}}s on the receiving end with torrential amounts of lead.
