Heavily inspired by Uzi and Mac-10, the Marco 5 SMG is a high mobility submachine gun, accurate from the hip with excellent close-range stopping power. This gun can accommodate rush playstyles. With the fast fire rate and high damage output, the weapon will be a favorable option for close-range and mid-range playstyle accompanied by a Sniper Rifle or an A.R. Moreover, the gun can be dual-wielded using the Akimbo perk for added firepower.
