The Suppressed Submachine Gun is a Submachine Gun in Fortnite: Battle Royale added in Season 0, with the update introducing Battle Royale.

Functionality

The Suppressed Submachine Gun is a fast firing, short range and high hip-fire accuracy weapon, in line with most SMGs in the game. The purpose of the Suppressed Submachine Gun is to deal high amounts of DPS in a close to medium range environment. The weapon can function at longer ranges, but the damage falloff is high and the accuracy low, but better than its un-suppressed counterpart. The weapon is mounted with a suppressor meaning it does not appear on an enemy compass when fired, and is not audible at longer ranges.

Obtained

The Suppressed Submachine Gun can be obtained by floor loot and chests.

Upgrading

The Suppressed Submachine Gun could be upgraded from Common to Rare at an Upgrade Bench. It could also be sidegraded to a Tactical Submachine Gun when available.

Since Upgrade Benches have been removed as of Chapter 2: Season 5, it can now be upgraded by interacting with certain Characters for bars.

Stats

The Suppressed Submachine Gun ranges from dealing 20 to 22 damage per shot (156 to 171.6 Damage Per Second). All Suppressed Submachine Guns use Light Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Light Ammo. The Suppressed Submachine Gun has a headshot multiplier of 1.75x.
