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 it's appearance in the game in Seasons 1 and 2. This weapon is often referred to as the "Machine Pistol" due to a an unused weapon in the game files officially 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 Chapter 2: Season 1. The term Machine Pistol will be used to refer to original "Submachine Gun" for the remainder of this page. This page may also be used for the leaked variant if and when it releases.

The Machine Pistol was an SMG in Battle Royale. It was available in , Common, Uncommon, and Rare variants.

The Machine Pistol was Vaulted in Patch 2.5.0, making it therefore 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 newer 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 was available temporarily in the Solid Gold LTM with the launch of Season X. It was replaced with the gold Compact SMG shortly after, as was initially intended. [1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Leaked Machine Pistol Via @iRealCross
  • The Machine Pistol is heavily inspired by the TEC-9 Machine Pistol, and it also bears some minor similarities with the Tactical Submachine Gun.
  • 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.
  • The reason why the Machine Pistol was vaulted was probably to free up space, because it was barely used, or because it was just too similar to the Tactical Submachine Gun.
