The submachine gun is a weapon in Fallout 4.

Background

The .45 submachine gun is used by the Triggermen operating in the Commonwealth. The gun is also utilized by raiders and the Commonwealth Minutemen.

Characteristics

The submachine gun's high rate of fire can quickly damage enemies at the cost of having little individual shot damage, going through ammo rapidly, and having sub-par range.

Notes

  • The submachine gun deals the same damage as a similarly modified automatic pipe gun, but with over double the potential ammunition capacity. Rounds are also found commonly, like the .38 rounds.
  • In the game files, the submachine gun's model is labeled "Tgun."
