The Submachine Gun resembles a large pistol with an elongated magazine extending from the grip. Smaller and with a larger magazine than ballistic rifles, it is capable of firing in both single-shot and burst-fire modes, though accuracy is reduced in the latter. This feature also makes it vulnerable to jamming.
