Pistol: Machine Pistol. Fires at a very high rate, dealing great damage while consuming a lot of ammo. Good for run-and-gun combat, and accurate enough to fight at mid range when fired in short bursts.

With the Epic and Legendary variants exclusive to Spy Games. It uses Light Bullets, has a head shot multiplier of 1.75x (deals 35, 36 and 38 damage to the head), and has quieted shots & fires low damage bullets at an slow rate with good accuracy towards the start of firing, slowly trailing off, as well high damage dropoff.
It was unvaulted on December 29, 2019 for 24 hours. Following the Hand Cannon, this is the 12th weapon to be unvaulted for the Winterfest event.
The Uncommon and Rare variants were unvaulted for the third time in Patch 12.0. It can only be found from eliminating GhostHenchmen or looting chests inside the Ghost-controlled buildings' vaults. Its fire rate has been decreased to 7.8 and damage values were reverted to how they were in Patch 4.20 through Patch 4.50. Its headshot multiplier was also reduced from 2x to 1.75x, making the weapon generally worse than the Submachine Gun. Other features of this SMG were nerfed, such as accuracy and bloom. In Patch 12.20 and Patch 12.30, The Epic and Legendary variants of the Suppressed Submachine Gun were added in the Spy Games event.
The Common variant was unvaulted in Patch 14.00 and the Uncommon and Rare variants of the Suppressed SMG are no longer exclusive to obtain from Henchmen and Henchmen Chests.
All variants of the Suppressed SMG was re-vaulted with Patch 16.00, replaced with the new Primal SMG and the Makeshift SMG.
Even though the Suppressed Submachine Gun has not been vaulted yet. In the Unvaulted LTM, it exists in the loot pool with other vaulted items.

The Suppressed SMG has been removed from Unvaulted as of Patch 14.60.
The Suppressed Submachine Gun is at its most accurate during its first few shots where it beats out almost all other guns in the game. However, like most other suppressed guns, once its accuracy has fully decreased, it becomes extremely inaccurate.
Because it is a close range weapon, the Suppressed Submachine Gun's silenced aspect is not very useful. However, if two players fight with silenced guns, their fight will not be heard, generally allowing more time to heal or loot undetected post-fight.
The Suppressed Submachine Gun's damage drops off very quickly at range, making it a bad choice at further medium ranges.
The Suppressed Submachine Gun’s low, good magazine size, and average accuracy makes this weapon semi-useful in most short-closer medium range engagements. However, its damage falloff, low headshot multiplier, and extremely slow rate of fire will prevent it from being useful beyond there.
The Suppressed Submachine Gun has first shot accuracy. If it is your first weapon, its suppressor, and accuracy can be a semi-functional substitute for an Assault Rifle. It is suggested that if someone with a Suppressed Submachine Gun cannot find an assault rifle, they should either wait for the SMG to regain first shot accuracy between each shot or to fire the weapon in bursts of three for maximum accuracy. This is not very effective as its low damage output and similar fire rate to an Assault Rifle makes it take an extremely long time to eliminate your opponent.
The Suppressed Submachine Gun can quickly and silently destroy structures from a distance without being noticed.
The Suppressed Submachine Gun has heavy penalties for continuous fire and strafing, making it a not very useful choice to fire while moving, regardless of it being from the hip or while aiming down sights.

Despite the Suppressed Submachine Gun having higher damage than the Tactical Submachine Gun, it will almost always lose to the Tactical SMG. Since the Tactical has a higher fire rate and decent damage.
This week’s content update includes the Burst Submachine Gun, which shares a number of similarities with the Suppressed Submachine Gun (High DPS, Light Ammo, Rarity).
