Typically an SMG uses smaller rounds then an Assault Rifle, like 9mm, or .45 ACP instead of .223 or .308
The smaller round results in higher capacity magazine, and faster fire rate, so damage per bullet is down but damage per second is up. And this almost looks like a vector, which you can easily load in 30 or 60 rounds of 45 ACP

True, but not true.
Ask the person who buffed its damage rate.

An SMG to me would be more like a small clip, but high damage rate provided you exclude reloading. One thing that tremulous never had was a gun that was insufficient to kill an acid tube in one clip.


The rifle took down acid tubes in 28 bullets. That left you two for yourself.

Now that you bring it up, that is really starting to bug me.

This is a futuristic gun, it doesn't need to resemble current loading mechanisms precisely.

Could be an extended part of the gas tube.

Or solid gas, kept under immense pressure. Only thing is that if the gun was shot, it would cause the wielder of that gun to die from its explosion. Then again, chuck it into a dragoon's mouth and run! :cool:

The .308 is a full power rifle cartridge used in battle rifles not assault rifles. Know your guns. :grin:

The assault rifle was developed to bridge the gap between the battle rifle and the SMG giving soldiers a balanced intermediate range option.

- The thing circled in red could be a gas port if this design uses a gas operated reload.
- The magazine and ejection port do not line up because that's the way the artist drew it. If you must have a reason to satisfy your OCD then don't think of it as an ejection port but instead think of it as a bolt hold open device.
