Notes Edit

  • These are meant more for close to mid-range; their damage drops off very quickly at higher ranges.
  • A high rate of fire makes SMGs great for countering structures, especially when an opponent is attempting to build at the same time.
  • It is very easy to run out of ammo due to its high rate of fire, so keep an eye on this.
