Are you new to the game, and have no idea what gun you should buy? Well then YOU'RE A NOOB! But it's this wiki's job to make you not a noob. Here is a brief introduction to SMG's.
What are SMGs?
SMGs are a category of guns purchasable from shop.
SMGs (SubMachine Guns) are guns designed to operate quickly. Most of them will have a high fire rate and quick reloads, but also loads of recoil and weaker damage. Though SMGs fire very fast, they do not have the clip sizes to support it. Most SMG clip sizes will be under 30. However, they boast a very fast reload speed- usually around 2 seconds. They also have a healthy reserve ammo to clip size ratio.
On the other hand, SMGs do not have a lot of power or accuracy. Many of them require 5 shots to kill a normal zombie, and even then you'd have to be pretty close to have all those shots hit. Also, SMGs have a ton of recoil.
However, SMGs do not give you much, if any walkspeed decrease- in fact one even buffs your walkspeed!
How do I use these?
SMGs are light and easy to use. They have fast fire rates and quick reloads. It's best to use these for hit-and-run attacks, or for the experienced players, run-and-gun. Their reload times and light walkspeed decreases make it so that you can move quickly, shoot quickly, reload quickly, and keep on firing.
