Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • Tactical Submachine Guns are meant for close to mid range encounters.
  • Consider using a Shotgun instead if you find yourself in more close range fights, as their burst damage tends to be superior to the Tactical SMG's damage over time.
  • This weapon has a low aim penalty while moving.
  • Try circle-strafing your target.
  • Aim somewhere between an enemy's head and chest for best damage and accuracy.
