".... like a rifle...." so how does an MG3 work at room clearing?;)

Pretty good: you hose the wall and the room behind is cleared ;)

In pratice that is not much of an issue since the MG would in most cases not enter the building but be part of the covering group that stays outside. In a particular large building the MG would enter after the initial assault team to provide fire superiourity. Usually along corridors or in halls and staircases.
I have on occation seen the MG being used as sort of a battering ram. With the gunner using it in the assult stance and firing continous bursts onto a room/doorway while advancing towards it. To allow the assault team to get close so they can use grenades and flush the position out.
