| ||For an overview of submachine gun models in the Fallout series of games, see submachine gun.|
The .45 submachine gun is a staple of the Triggermen gangs operating in the Commonwealth, following old pre-War mafia values and traditions. This old submachine gun has become a rather common sight in the Commonwealth, serving with various factions operating in the area, such as the raiders and the Minutemen.
The submachine gun sports a high rate of fire, being able to quickly damage enemies, but with the cost of having little individual shot damage and being able to rip through ammo stunningly fast due to its rate of fire, while also having sub-par range. Thankfully, reloads are fast enough and hip-fire spread is manageable but recoil while aiming can be an issue without a muzzle brake fitted.
