The MP38 is a small gun in Fallout Tactics.

The Schmeisser MP-38 9mm machine pistol was introduced as the standard sub machine gun of the German Army in 1938. Cheap and reliable.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The MP38 has damage comparable to the Sten Gun, except with slightly better range. It's a useful SMG at low levels until better weapons such as the Ruger AC556F are obtained.

Location[edit | edit source]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • In 1938, on the eve of World War Two, the German army needed a compact weapon that provided more firepower than a simple pistol to arm its paratroopers, tank crews and officers: the Maschinenpistole 38, commonly known as the MP38, was born.
  • The description is factually incorrect, as Hugo Schmeisser had nothing to do with the MP-38's development.
