Manufacturer: Strafe N' Shoot Armory.
Creator of Idea: Strafer99
Strafe N' Shoot Armory had been in the game for a bit by now, but other companies were thinking of better ideas like SAI's AA-12 or pushing out more weapons and gear like SUPER WEAPONS. The joint op in creating the SMG II with K177 was not much of a profit earner for SNSA as K177 contributed more to the project and needed the money more than Strafe N' Shoot. The CEO of the company was just out of luck, couldn't make a Shotgun, SAI took that. Automatics? They practically helped make/made 3 in a row! Melees? People can just pick up a shovel or pan and they're set! Rifles? Most people would just pick up an AK and just ignore everything else. But one of the engineers that worked with K177 in the creation of the SMG II learned a bit about advanced tech.
The CEO decided to try and create a energy based weapon, but nothing too big like a full on rifle or shotgun. A basic side arm, and what could be a better candidate in this project than the classic Pew Pew? The engineer taught his fellow workers how to create energy based technology and they got to work. The final result was a more serious Pew Pew that could 2 shot a normal and was equipped with a burst mode along side semi-auto. The charges were expensive to make and for that purpose you only get 18 shots in a battery cell and one extra. But the damage is pretty good and attachment pool can help solve the problem but it's almost $10K per attachment. It's new coolant and fans allow it to rapidly fire or spam bursts without risk of burning yourself. You get this for 2'499 Tickets or get it from a chest for free, don't expect this to be like a mini-FATAL or something. Maybe even possibly a gift?
A good side-arm that is basically if you turned the M16A1 into a secondary, make it a bit more powerful and make it a futuristic weapon from the year 3000 or whenever laser blasters start to actually hurt stuff. Like every secondary, equip a good primary as they mainly act as a backup plan if you run out of primary ammunition.
Decent reload time.
Nice attachment pool.
Can be gotten for free.
Costs Tickets, lots of them.
You will be reloading and draining ammo stations quite often.
Like almost every secondary, don't count on it to save you in a situation best suited for a primary like a AK-47 or Flamethrower.
A thanks to @Ze Roela for the balance changes on this weapon so it's still good but not as good. A.K.A. Balanced, as all things should be.
