9mm submachine gun
Regular and fully modified
We have a little 9mm submachine gun, it looks like a World War II grease gun, but sort of compacted. And that's a really cool distinctive little weapon.”— J.E.Sawyer, Fallout: New Vegas video developer diary #2
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
An automatic, air-cooled blowback-operated weapon firing from an open bolt, the 9mm submachine gun offers an exceptional rate of fire, capable of emptying its full 30-round magazine in under 3 seconds. It's a compact weapon, with a telescoping one-piece wire stock. The 9mm rounds doesn't deal quite as much damage as 10mm or 12.7mm rounds, but they're common and light, making it even easier to spray-and-pray.
With the light bolt modification, this weapon can do 200 damage-per-second. However, it shares the common weakness of most shotguns and automatic weapons in Fallout: New Vegas, in that much of its theoretical power is negated by the damage threshold system. In addition to losing much of its damage, the high spread of this weapon requires the player character to be in close quarters for all of the rounds fired to impact on the target. The 9mm SMG can fire 4245 standard rounds from full condition before breaking.
