Background

Main article: Submachine gun

This submachine gun filled National Guard arsenals after the Army replaced it with newer weapons. However, the "Grease" gun was simple and cheap to manufacture so there are still quite a few still in use. It's very powerful, but its .45 rounds lack the bonuses of 10mm rounds.

Characteristics

This SMG is fast, costing 1 AP less to fire than most other SMGs. However, it is limited by heavy ammunition, weighing 1 pound for every 10 shots. The weapon requires a minimum of 4 Strength to carry.

Behind the scenes

The Grease Gun is based on its real life counterpart, the M3 submachine gun, which entered service in the U.S. Army on December 12, 1942. Designed as a cost-effective substitute for the .45 caliber Thompson submachine gun, it was nicknamed the "Grease Gun" due to its similarity in appearance to the mechanic's tool of the same name.
