Best Answer

The rate of fire on an MG42 varied depending on what bolt was used, but optimal settings allowed for 1,500 rounds per minute. The M134 (otherwise known as a "minigun") fires at between 2,000-6,000 rounds per minute. So, to answer your question, the minigun fires much faster than the MG42, even with ideal configuration.

Note: Keep in mind, however, that the MG42 did use a slightly larger round (7.92mm, as opposed to the miniguns' 7.62mm).

Mg42 or bozooka what one was better?

A comparison is impossible to my way of thinking because the MG42 was a machine gun and the bazooka was a rocket launcher. It is an apples versus oranges contest. The German counterpart to the bazooka would be the panzerschreck, or possibly the panzerfaust. The US counterpart to the MG42 would be the Browning M1919.
