.45 Auto submachine gun
Regular and fully modified
A venerable relic, the .45 Auto submachine gun is a classic design that rivals the .45 Auto pistol in age. Originally designed for trench warfare of World War I, this weapon's craftsmanship and firepower made it a popular choice for Prohibition-era gangsters, policemen, and U.S. military units. It is a conventional open bolt, magazine fed design. While heavy for its size, the metal and wood used in its manufacture make it extremely durable. Many units were kept in storage by the United States Army and National Guard, eventually finding their way into the hands of various groups across the wasteland after these armories and ammo dumps were looted. The most notable groups include the White Legs, who adopted them as Storm Drums and use them extensively in their raids, and the Triggermen of the Commonwealth.
The submachine gun has high spread, making it best suited for short and medium distances combat. However, with a muzzle brake it becomes a terrifying force of destruction. Its only disadvantage is the appetite for ammunition, which burns through .45 Auto like there was no tomorrow. But with 525 DPS with 100 Guns, there are few more valuable weapons for killing absolutely everything at short distances.
