SMGs are a major part of the game and you cannot just go without them. This is the reason that you should know a thing or two about them so when the time comes, you can use them effectively. So if you want to know some important things about the SMGs, refer to the guide below:
Use with Shotgun:
Most of the SMGs are best to be used with a shotgun. You can do a quick blast of a shotgun and then follow up with an SMG. This will help you ensure that the enemy does not survive even after the blasts from a shotgun and also if you ever run out bullets in a shotgun, you can rely on the SMG. But you will need to practice the technique of taking out an SMG immediately after you run out of shotgun ammo or the delay can go in the benefit of the enemy.
Great for Destruction:
SMGs are great for the destruction of walls. This is because they have a very good fire rate that can make you be able to output a lot of damage in very little time so that does not let your opponent use the materials to build other walls or repair the existing one as you will be doing everything at a very rapid pace. Just make sure that you are shooting at a place where they are standing behind the wall.
No Need for Assault Rifle:
If you have a right loadout, you can even go without the hassle of finding an Assault rifle. This is because you need a combo of short range, mid-range and a long range and that is pretty much possible with an assault rifle and a sniper rifle. But if you use the drum gun which has a very good mid-range effectiveness and pair it up with a sniper rifle, you will get the same combo with a better fire rate and clip size at mid to short range combat.
Fire at Chest:
If you are using an SMG, then after your first shot, you should take your aim to the chest. This is because the SMG has a very rapid-fire rate and that can increase the recoil of the weapon. So that way, if you aim for the chest then the aim will be able to go to the head because of that recoil and that means you will not only be able to get the damage of the chest but also the head. If you aim for the neck, you can also land a few shots to the heads but in that situation, you are likely to miss the shots that you are firing at the neck as the bullet tend to spread.
These are some of the tips that are related to SMGs, just make sure to read them all and practice them so you can increase your SMG skills.
