History
Introduced Patch 1.6
Last Adjustment Silenced SMG Hotfix (November 17, 2017)
Vaulted Patch 2.5.0

The weapon being discussed in this page is the weapon referred to as the "Submachine Gun", during its appearance in the game in Seasons 1 and 2. This weapon is often referred to as the "Machine Pistol" due to an unused weapon in the game files called the Machine Pistol, which has very similar stats to this weapon. The name Machine Pistol also helps distinguish this weapon from the Submachine Gun, which is a weapon of the same name added in Season 5 and was brought back as the base SMG in the beginning of Chapter 2, in Patch 11.0. The term Machine Pistol will be used to refer to original "Submachine Gun" for the remainder of this page.

The Machine Pistol was an SMG that appeared in Battle Royale. It was available in Common, Uncommon, and Rare variants. It used Light Bullets.

The Machine Pistol was Vaulted in Patch 2.5.0, therefore making it currently unavailable. It was vaulted because it was barely used by people with its low damage.

The weapon's code has been reused for the SMGs and then deleted, however, in Patch 10.00, new Machine Pistol files have appeared in the game files, hinting at it's plausible return. The Common version of the new Machine Pistol was temporarily available in the Solid Gold LTM with the launch of Season X. It was replaced with the Legendary Compact SMG shortly after, as was intended. [1]

The Machine Pistol has been featured in a Creative Featured Island News page on July 21st, 2020. This may hint towards the return/addition of the Machine Pistol.

The Machine Pistol made a brief appearance in the Unvaulted Game Mode with Patch 15.40 for a few hours after the Game Mode returned. However like how it was in Season X, it was quickly removed.

Trivia

  • The Machine Pistol is heavily inspired by the TEC-9 Machine Pistol, and it also bears some minor similarities with the Tactical Submachine Gun and the Rapid Fire SMG.
  • The UZI version of the Machine Pistol strangely seems to have a slightly clear barrel.
  • It was the second item to ever be vaulted, following the Zapatron.
  • At the time of it's vaulting, the Rare Machine Pistol had a DPS of 240, the highest in the game, as it shot 15 bullets per second.
  • The reason why the Machine Pistol was vaulted was probably to free up space, because it was barely used, or because it was too similar to the Tactical Submachine Gun and was rarely used.
  • The new version of the Machine Pistol appeared on the side of the daily assignments board with the launch of Chapter 2: Season 2, but was later removed in 12.10 and replaced with the standard Submachine Gun. The reason behind this is unknown.
  • Its possible that this weapon was replaced by the Rapid Fire SMG.
    • This is evident from the fire rate and it's reload time.
  • This weapon was leaked for 30 minutes at the beginning of Season X. [2]
