 Minigun - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
More technically, a minigun is an externally powered Gatling gun of rifle caliber, though the term is sometimes used more generally to refer to guns of similar rates of fire and configuration regardless of power source.
The ancestor to the modern minigun was made in the late 19th-century, when Richard J. Gatling replaced the hand crank mechanism of a rifle caliber Gatling gun with one of the relatively new electric motors.
Despite Gatling's deliberate attempts to slow down the mechanism, the new electric-powered Gatling gun was credited with a cyclic rate of 3,000 rpm.

The original Gatling gun had fallen out of favor because of the need for an external power source to rotate the barrel assembly, but the new generation of turbojet-powered fighters offered sufficient electrical power to operate the gun, and electric operation offered superior reliability to a gas operated weapon.
The Vulcan is a Gatling gun: each of the cannon's six barrels fires once in turn during each revolution of the barrel cluster.
The five-barrel GAU-12 Equalizer 25 mm gun used in the AV-8B Harrier II is a Vulcan derivative, but despite greater hitting power (since it fires a heavier round at virtually the same muzzle velocity) it had yet to find wide application (except for the F-35 Lightning II which was reduced to four barrel).

Gatling gun of an A-10 Thunderbolt II at Osan Air Base, Korea However, Gatling-style guns with rotating barrels were to return as very high rate-of-fire weapons in military aircraft and ship-based anti-missile defence systems.
A variety of similar weapons are available in calibers ranging from 5.56mm to 30mm, the rate of fire being somewhat proportional to the size and mass of the ammunition (which also determines the size and mass of the barrels).

A chain gun is a type of machine gun or automatic cannon that uses an external source of power, rather than recoil, to cycle the weapon, and does so via a continuous loop of chain similar to that used on a motor or bicycle.
Other examples of chain guns include the M230 30 mm Cannon, which is standard equipment on the Apache helicopter, as well as the Bushmaster II 30 mm, and the Bushmaster III 35/50 mm Chain gun.
It is a common misnomer to refer to Gatling guns (rotary cannons) or miniguns as chain guns; even in some video games, such as Wolfenstein 3D and Doom, the player carries a minigun referred to as a chain gun.

A minigun is a multibarreled machine gun with a flying estimate of embers (several hundred thousand rounds per minute), bestowing Gatling-style periodic barrels.
The ancestor to the modern minigun was made in the remiss 19th-century, when Richard J. Gatling replaced the hand crank workings of a rifle caliber Gatling gun with uncommon of the comparably ac motors.
Even after Gatling calculatingly slowed down the mechanism, the electric-powered Gatling gun was credited with a cyclic estimate of 3,000 rpm--roughly times the estimate of a regular modern, single-barreled apparatus gun.

For machinge guns there can be added tracers for better aim, and these bullets could be seen only on client, not for the other players/server.
It's not exactly gonna change the gun overall effectiveness, though it will give a false sense of strength from the gun perhaps, but from civilian point of view i don't think most of us can tell the difference if done right.
U can also increase the damage for each shot to better reflect this if u wish of course, this is speaking purely from the fact that i think typical gamers and civy work on the simple term of "the more impressive it looks, the better it is" regardless of what they REALLY do.
