Silenced .22 SMG
Regular and fully modified
A distinctive weapon, firing .22 cartridges from a pan magazine, using a conventional blowback mechanism. While it offers a respectable fire rate thanks to its open bolt construction, its real strength lies in the integrated suppressor, which completely silences the weapon.
The submachine gun has a very high damage per second, but is still outperformed in that aspect by the 9, 10 and 12.7mm submachine guns. Much of its theoretical power is negated by the damage threshold system. In addition to losing much of its damage, the high spread of this weapon requires the player character to be at close ranges for all of the rounds fired to impact on the target.
The silenced .22 SMG can fire a total of 4995 standard rounds from full condition before breaking.
