The submachine gun is a ranged weapon in Fallout 76.

Characteristics

A rapid-fire weapon firing .45 caliber rounds, the submachine gun is a relatively common sight in Appalachia. Best used to put as many bullets as possible downrange as quickly as possible, its high fire rate is balanced by lower damage.
