The Jackal is a fake weapon based on 9mm SMG. It's a crossing betwen SMG and assaut rifle, able to kill a full room of enemy. It's a weapon redesigned by US Army for be the new generation of weapon called Personal Defense Weapon for respond to Chinese weapons.


The Jackal deals many damage-per-second, however it shares the common weakness of most automatic weapons in Fallout: New Vegas, in that much of its theoretical power is negated by the damage threshold system. In addition to losing much of its damage to the target's damage threshold, the high spread of the Jackal requires the player to be at close range for all of the rounds fired to impact on the target.

Due to his status of PDW, the Jackal is classified as a two-handed weapon; because of this, traveling with the weapon unholstered will slow the player character's movement speed. This also causes the weapon to be holstered on the back, rather than on the hip as with most SMGs.


The Jackal can fire a total of about 2870 standard rounds, the equivalent of 96 reloads from full condition before breaking.
