A submachine gun is a firearm introduced in SLASH'EM. It is often found on soldiers and their senior officers. A submachine gun is set on fully automatic mode by default, but can be set to burst mode (rate of fire cut to 1/3) or single-shot mode by applying it.

Rate of fire

In fully automatic mode, the submachine gun's rate of fire depends on its enchantment and skill of the user.
