Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • Submachine Guns are meant for close to mid range encounters.
  • Consider using a Shotgun paired with this gun for maximum damage.
  • Alternatively, you can use multiple SMG's to remove the reload time, allowing you to continue shooting until all of your SMG's are out of ammo.
  • This weapon has a low aim penalty while moving.
  • Try crouch-strafing your target.
  • Aim somewhere between an enemy's head and chest for best damage and accuracy.
