The Submachine Gun or SMG for short is a new weapon found in Alan Wake's American Nightmare. It takes 3 manuscript pages to unlock and can first be found outside of the hotel at the rest stop.
The SMG pumps out bullets at a fantastic rate. Anything stupid enough to get too close to you can expect to get shredded, but keep an eye on your ammunition -- it goes quickly!
The Submachine gun resembles the real world Mac 10 machine pistol. The Submachine gun has a 30 round clip and possibly the fastest rate of fire in the game. Because of this, the Submachine gun proves to be an especially versatile one-handed weapon. It is the only one-handed weapon to have automatic fire and such a large clip. However, the Submachine gun suffers from a somewhat lengthy reload, as well as rapid ammo consumption. This means it should be used in conjunction with a suitable two handed weapon. The maximum amount of ammo able to be carried for it at a time is 150 (counting the 30 loaded rounds).
Obtaining the Submachine Gun
- When first obtaining the Submachinegun Alan remarks "about time I went full auto" referencing the fact that this is the first time you can wield a fully automatic weapon in the series.
- The SMG, which resembles Ingram Mac-10, is also the characteristic weapon in Remedy's previous game - w:c:maxpayne:Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne.
