Weapon OverviewEdit

A nimble firearm designed for close quarters combat, the Sub Machine Gun is best used at short distances because of its high rate of fire and low accuracy. Along with the Assault Rifle , the Sub Machine Gun is one of the two most commonly seen guns in game. The SMG does have some common ground with the Assault rifle, sharing the other weapon's automatic fire and general handling characteristics, but with lower damage and recoil, larger bullet spread, and an increased rate of fire.


Thanks to the Sub Machine Gun's high rate of fire, firing from the hip can be quite effective. Doing so, however, will chew through its Ammunition supply very quickly, so consider attaching an Extended Magazine to allow for sustained bursts of fire. A Suppressor Muzzle may also be worthwhile, as otherwise the steady rattle of the Sub Machine Gun may alert hostiles to your presence.

Alternatively, attaching a Heavy Barrel and a muzzle with a damage bonus is also viable. This setup will decrease your effective range considerably, but will also make you more effective in close quarters, reducing the Sub Machine Gun from a 5-hit kill to a 4-hit kill.

Never forget that the Sub Machine Gun is a short range weapon by design. Stay close to cover, and if you discover an unaware enemy, hold fire until they are within effective killing distance. Stay on the move, and try to flank the enemy to force an engagement on your terms. If all goes well, it is entirely possible to take down an entire squad singlehandedly with this weapon.

A lightweight, rapid-fire solution to any player desiring a compact weapon, the SMG is a very capable and competitive firearm, suitable for getting up close and personal with the enemy.
