The Tommy gun is a small gun in Fallout 2.

This Thompson M1928 submachine gun is a sinister looking weapon; every time you hold it, you have an urge to put on a fedora hat and crack your knuckles. The Thompson is well-fed by a large 50 round drum magazine.

This Thompson M1928 submachine gun is a sinister looking weapon; every time you hold it, you have an urge to put on a fedora hat and crack your knuckles. The Thompson is well-fed by a large 50 round drum magazine. Like the "Grease gun", the Thompson is pretty powerful, but fires nondescript .45 caliber rounds.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Like the M3A1 "grease gun" SMG, the usage of this gun is limited by its rather heavy ammunition. Furthermore, the grease gun has better damage, longer range, and requires 1 less AP to fire. The only real advantage the Tommy gun has over the grease gun is that it carries a larger magazine. Although if Fedoras and suits were available in the game, the Tommy gun would obviously be the superior choice.
