How do the players react to this news?
"looks to be an Uzi though like everyone has said. Usually, these are fast firing guns that dump the magazine quickly in most games. I could see them adopting it to function like the Tac SMG but who knows, since this is the vidya game world it doesn't have to function anything like an Uzi IRL."
"Or they could just bring back the damn tac SMG since no body wanted that gun vaulted and it's a shit ton better then the crap smgs they have now unless this is just a reskin of it."
