A World War II weapon, it is noticeably worn and has been fitted with an aftermarket rail in front of the rear sight. It was almost exclusively used by the Waffen-SS until being replaced by the MP40. In the game, it is known for using a 20-round magazine, firing at a controllable but slow rate, having somewhat obstructive sights and having no attachment slots, all of which are often seen as disadvantages. It is also likely that, combined with its disadvantages, the fact that Nazi Germany originally used the gun detracts from the appeal of the gun. However, it still holds up in the hands of an effective shooter, and can take on Royal Army and smaller animals as well as any other early automatic. It has virtually no recoil, enough accuracy to perform at assault rifle range, and a rate of fire that allows you to conserve the small amount of rounds you get per mag. Although the average player is better advised to either buy a different automatic or capture a Royal Army AK, it isn't a horrible choice, and those that enjoy using classic or simple guns won't be disappointed. Just make sure that you are accurate enough to get enough bullets on target, because you will need a few hits to kill a man, and quite a few to kill a charging tiger.
