The Rapid Fire SMG is an Uncommon and Rare SMG in Battle Royale. The Uncommon variant can be dropped from SHADOW Henchmen while the Rare variant can be found in Henchmen Chests at the SHADOW locations, or from upgrading the Uncommon variant at an Upgrade Bench.

Epic and Legendary variants can be obtained in the Spy Games LTM by having a Rare/Epic Rapid Fire SMG and upgrading it using the Gun Smith Tech.

The Rapid Fire SMG has a headshot multiplier of ~1.75x and a very high fire rate, at the cost of low damage, high damage dropoff, and a very short range.

Locations[edit | edit source]

The Rapid Fire SMG can occasionally be found in Agent Boxes or from Henchmen in the following locations:

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Although the Rapid Fire SMG looks like the vaulted Burst SMG, it is full auto. While the Burst SMG has a 4 shot burst that deals higher damage and has a 24 magazine size.
  • The Rapid Fire SMG fires extremely quickly, finishing an entire 20 bullet magazine in 1.25 seconds.
    • Due to this high fire rate, it is best to make sure you line up your first bullet to get guaranteed damage off first instead of spraying it roughly in the direction of players like other SMGs.
      • It is also important to use it at very close range as the bullet spread is very high and the damage dropoff is also very high.
