In Sniper Elite 5, the SMG is your best friend in a bad situation. It shoots a lot of bullets very quickly, and it can take out multiple enemies at once. If you need to make a lot of shots quickly and you don't care who hears you, you pull out your SMG.
Best SMG build in Sniper Elite 5
Below is our best build for an SMG in Sniper Elite 5:
- SMG: Welgun SMG
- Barrel: Standard
- Muzzle: McLeen Control Brake
- Magazine: Standard Issue
- Stock: Lightweight X2
- Foregrip: Austen Control
- Rear Grip: Quick-Draw Grip
- Receiver: Lightened Bolt
In this case, we didn't care about the sound it made; we just wanted the SMG to be available whenever we needed it. When you pull out the SMG, you've been caught and need to clear the room. An SMG must be accurate and easy to control, but it's also important not to sacrifice too much power. You're in a tough spot if your SMG can hit enemies but not kill them (and quickly).
Note that we don't really care about how the SMG looks with this build. We ignored the cosmetic option since it does not affect the SMG's ability to fire. Feel free to make your own cosmetic choices.
