AP Machine-Gun (徹甲機銃 (A・P・マシンガン) Ē-Pī Mashingan?, literal meaning "Armor-Piercing Shot Machine-Gun") is a variation of the AP Shot Super Move utilized by Katsuki Bakugo with his Explosion Quirk.


Katsuki focuses the power of his explosion into a single point before unleashing it as a barrage of small but powerful explosions. The pace is similar to AP Shot: Auto-Cannon, but this version is clearly improved with larger blasts that carry more explosive force.

Katsuki first used this move during the battle against Tomura Shigaraki in Jaku City, though the attack failed to do any damage.[1]
