Although the Sten gun has less range compared to other common SMGs, it makes up for this deficiency with its slightly higher damage. The Sten gun is the perfect SMG for close quarters combat, but don't expect to win a gunfight at long range.

Behind the scenes
The 9mm Sten gun was developed by the British during WW2 by the Royal Small Arms Factory as a cheap alternative to the more expensive Thompson SMG offered by the U.S. The Sten proved to be extremely reliable and, due to its fairly loose tolerances, could perform in poor conditions much more reliably than ostensibly better weapons.
