SMG (Sub Machine Gun) is an automatic carbine designed to fire pistol cartridges. It combines the automatic fire of a machine gun with the cartridge of a pistol. The submachine gun was invented during World War I (1914-1918) but the apex of its use was during World War II (1939-1945) when millions of the weapon type were manufactured. Today, the submachine guns have been replaced by the assault rifles for military use but still in use for close quarter battle and by law enforcement.


Submachine guns are categorized as one of the primary weapons in Counter-Strike Online. A submachine gun can usually be identified by its high rate of automatic fire using small caliber ammunition and has standard magazine capacity.

Submachine guns are widely used by players in the first few rounds. It is then usually replaced by the assault rifles and sniper rifles on later rounds. Submachine guns are oftenly used when the player has low money possession.
