Custom SMG

The Custom SMG is a low-to-mid ranged, high rate of fire gun in RUST. This gun type is most commonly used for ‘disposable’ kits, usually housed alongside a Hazmat Suit in Lockers near the exits of applicable bases. 

The weapon boasts decent versatility in use, being commonplace for both PVE situations like Oil Rig and other monuments and limited range PVP. While not boasting any range to speak of, the custom SMG is a favorite due to its easy acquisition and cost to craft. It’s best suited for close combat situations.

The custom SMG boasts a slightly larger magazine size over the comparable Thompson, having roughly 20% more ammo per clip. 

However, the rate of fire is considerably higher, as is the recoil associated with full spraying. The custom shines over the shorter distance fights, able to pump more bullets into closer targets quickly.

Custom SMGs may be acquired from several military or locked crate types and most scientist NPCs. These weapons are highly sought after as early game weapons and can help players dominate on wipe day. Players may research them directly or invest 1350 Scrap into a tier 2 workbench for acquisition via the tech tree.

The custom SMG accepts the following bullet types:  HV Pistol AmmoIncendiary Pistol BulletPistol Bullet.

In addition, this weapon is a prime choice for setting up Auto Turret defense systems.
