Description[edit | edit source]
An SMG-5 (submachine gun) is a rapid fire ranged weapon, which can be crafted or found throughout the world of 7 Days to Die in containers, such as Weapon bags, Gun Safes, Crates and Loot bags. The SMG uses 9mm Ammo and will hold 28 bullets. Despite being called a submachinegun, it uses the Agility statistic shared with Pistol style weapons instead, since it uses 9mm Ammo.
Combat[edit | edit source]
During combat, the SMG-5 is a very effective short to medium range weapon, eliminating most enemies within seconds due to its accuracy and high rate of fire. Currently, it is one of the most effective Weapons against large groups of Zombies due to its accuracy, large magazine, high rate of fire, and quick reloading speed. It also boasts minimal recoil, making it particularly accurate when aiming down the sight.
An SMG will reload automatically or it can be done manually by pressing the reload key (default key 'R').

Easter Egg[edit | edit source]
Many players have found the SMG-5 inside gun safes, Shotgun Messiah crates etc. with a note containing the message: "Jonathan werd' gesund und trinke deinen Yucca Juice".
People started to look this phenomenon up and found out that one of the developers has a brother living in Germany, to which this hidden message is addressed. It states that Jonathan shall get healthy, be cured from his illness, and always drink his Yucca Juice.
