"13 millimetre canister shots and an immense capacity allow the Maelstrom to launch a seemingly-endless fusillade of carnage. You may wish to bring a rain-coat for the downpour of zombie parts."
―Official Description

The Type-8 Maelstrom is a late-game light machine gun manufactured by Hellstorm. The Maelstrom embodies all the qualities of a strong machine gun: It has an excellent rate of fire, a titanic capacity and a vicious fragmenting canister shot allowing it to pound infected into bloody chunks. Its downsides are its prohibitively expensive augmentation costs, and its incredibly late appearance - the Maelstrom will not begin appearing in crates until Rank 75 and it does not have a [RED] variant, although it can be argued that the Maelstrom does not need one due to its sheer power.
