Usage & Description[]

Machine Pistols are a type pistol that fire rounds at very high rates compared to Repeater Pistols. Machine pistols can deliver a large amount of damage on a target in a very short amount of time.

The drawback to machine pistols compared to repeater pistols is that their accuracy is lower and is effected greatly by their high recoil. They are best used in a spray-and-pray style or at close range in controlled bursts aiming for center mass.
