Ramps up fire rate over time
— In-game description

The X-55 Devotion is one of three light machine guns (LMGs) in Titanfall 2. Its fire rate increases greatly the longer a Pilot holds down the trigger, though this is counterbalanced somewhat by the fact that its starting rate of fire is incredibly slow on the first few rounds, even more so than the game's semiautomatic weapons.

As such, firing this weapon in short, controlled bursts in a manner similar to the Spitfire LMG  or various other automatic weapons in the game is greatly discouraged. For maximum effectiveness, hold down the trigger as long as possible.

The X-55 Devotion also appeared in Apex Legends as a Care Package weapon, which can only be found through supply drops and care packages (along with the Kraber-AP Sniper and the Peacekeeper). This was the case from season 4 to season 5. However, as season 6, the Devotion is a ground weapon like it was from season 0 to season 3.

Trivia

  • The X55 Devotion has design similarities to the Volt, suggesting that the Devotion and the Volt are part of the same weapons family. It is also possible that the Devotion fires the same Blue Tracers as the Volt.
  • According to artist Robb Shoberg, the Devotion's overall design was originally envisioned for use by the Hemlok BF-R

."early hemlock BR lowpoly shot. design was updated but had this old art meeting shot i liked."

    • Furthermore, the Devotion seen in Titanfall: Assault bears markings that say "Hamlock MKII". Assuming "Hamlock" is a misspelled "Hemlok", it is possible the Devotion is in fact part of the same family. A harder-to-read decal with "HEMLOK MK.II" can be seen on the in-game model of the Devotion. This supports the idea that the Devotion and Volt are LMG and SMG variants of the Hemlok BF-R, respectively.
  • Pre-release art depicts the Devotion with a regular magazine - however, the final game only permits use of a box magazine.
  • The Devotion's method or ramping up its rate of fire is possibly inspired by the Amped LMG Burn Card, from the first Titanfall.
  • The weapon itself is very loosely based on the Stoner 63, a Vietnam War-era weapon that could either be used as an assault rifle or a belt-fed LMG much like the Devotion, but with the front end resembling an FN SCAR and the stock of an ACR.
  • The name could be derived from the idea of the shooter having to be "devoted" to holding down the trigger to increase the weapon's rate of fire instead of firing in bursts.
