Submachine Guns (SMG)

Submachine guns (SMG) are perfect for short distance (and for medium distance, with a bit of practice). Weapons in this group combine characteristics of handguns (their damage and accuracy over short distance) and of assault rifles (rate of fire and clip size). They are extremely effective in urbanized areas and indoors. In such situations, they can deal the highest damage of all weapons (with the exception of point blank shotgun fire). However, they have two shortcomings – their effectiveness drops significantly with distance from the enemy and they deplete ammo quickly and therefore, you have to keep an eye on the number of available rounds.

SMGs are perfect within enclosed areas.

In the game, there are 4 SMGs – Micro UZI, UMP9, Vector and Tommy Gun. The last one, Tommy Gun, can only be obtained from a supply crate. The below table presents information on all the weapons in this group – damage dealt, clip size, ammo type, and available firing modes.

35 30 9mm Single

Note – the above damage refers to damage taken by the opponent hit in the chest, without an armor. Damage dealt differs, depending on the armor type and damaged body part – See the chapter entitled “How to minimize damage taken”, for more information.

There are several things to remember, while using this type of weaponry:

  1. Submachine guns are extremely effective over short distance, in urbanized areas and indoors. Their rate of fire, damage dealt and accuracy over short distance make this type of weapons unparalleled, when it comes to damage dealt.
  2. It is a good idea to use this type of weapons within enclosed areas, among numerous buildings, or indoors. If the fighting takes place in a vast, open area, it is better to swap SMG with assault rifle or sniper rifle.
  3. SMG silencers are extremely effective – the enemy will not be able to hear you from the distance of over 100m (and he will have difficulty hearing you within the distance).
  4. While using Micro UZI and Vector, keep an eye on number of rounds left in the clip. Both of these have sky-high rate of fire and, as a result, you can deplete ammo in your clip in less than a second!
  5. Tommy Gun is difficult to obtain, because it can only be found in supply drops. Still, this is one of the most interesting weapons in the game. It combines characteristics of handguns and SMGs – it deals high damage and there are as many, as 100 rounds in the magazine.
