The Tactical SMG (TSMG) is a Primary Receiver available in Blacklight: Retribution.

Weapon OverviewEdit

The Tactical SMG is similar to the Submachine Gun but has a higher firerate of 950. With the highest firerate in-game and the Tactical SMG's boost to Run Speed, this weapon excels at close quarters.

Only this weapon's Scope, Muzzle, and Magazine can be customized.

Tactics Edit

The TSMG is primarily used for running and gunning while hip-firing but differs from the SMG by being able to aim down the sights while maintaining a high accuracy. The low recoil and spread allows for better sustained fire but this rate of fire and mobility comes with a decrease of damage per bullet, as a result more bullets are required to hit to deal the same amount of damage as other weapons. This is most noticeable at longer ranges where the TSMG's short range will reduce bullet damage even further.

In practice, the TSMG should be used as often as possible at close range and the weapon's increased Run Speed can be used to rush to objectives or cross large maps in a short amount of time.

The TSMG does not have an interchangeable barrel or stock. This results in Run Speed, Damage, and Recoil only be affected by the Magazine and Muzzle. It is best to increase damage and magazine size as the detriments to run speed and accuracy are hardly noticeable.

Ammunition Edit

There are 4 different magazines available for the Tactical SMG.

Price Edit

Premade Variants Edit
