The 10mm submachine gun (SMG) is a small gun in Fallout 3.

CharacteristicsEdit

The 10mm SMG is most effective at close-range by unleashing a hail of bullets. However, the SMG is next to useless at longer ranges unless assisted by the perk Concentrated Fire. The SMG simply has too much spread to be of much use beyond close-range combat. Another downfall of the SMG is its ammunition consumption; if ammunition is not properly managed, the SMG can eat through 10mm rounds at alarming speeds. With full automatic fire and a 30-round magazine, the SMG is a decent emergency sidearm when enemies start to get too close, particularly given that 10mm ammo is plentiful. The SMG however is very common, making it easy to repair and is recommended to lower level Small Guns users.

DurabilityEdit

The 10mm SMG can fire a total of about 1190 times, the equivalent of 40 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

VariantsEdit

  • Sydney's 10mm "Ultra" SMG - Relic hunter Sydney's weapon of choice, the Ultra SMG holds an astounding 50 10mm rounds in a single magazine, and deals more damage than the standard SMG.
  • Sim version Gametitle-FO3 OA - A sim-only version of the weapon which differs only in health, with a whopping 999,250 hit points. Essentially preventing the gun from ever degrading, well over 1500 rounds of ammunition can be fired without it degrading 1%. The weapon is not accessible outside of the simulation without the use of the Gary 23 exploit or console commands. It can be obtained in the sim through certain equipment packs on the equipment terminal.
