Hands down, M16 is better in every possible way than the Thompson now
More reserve, fast burst mode, better accuracy
Tommy has more ammo
@Damobilesh0tter Tommy overall doesn't have the most ammo. If you do the math, the max amount of bullets for tommy is 160 if you were to have the drum mag and an armor with +2 mags. The max amount of bullets for m16 is 180 with barrel mag and an armor with +2 mags. The tommy does 7,200 damage at it's max, (+2 mags, ammo attachment) and m16 does 8,100 damage at it's max (+2 mags, ammo attachment). You also only have to be rank 10 to unlock the m16, and rank 15 for the tommy. I respect your "fact" but it is a WRONG moment.
Well thompson is better at clearing hordes
With burst yeah its helpful but tommy can at least make a horde easier clear
Thompson's RoF feels really slow(being only at 400rpm), making it unable to dispatch zombies, especially the dangerous one quickly. Also the range, M16's range is above 100 which makes it still reliable at longer distances. The thompson's range forces your to go CQC.
Just bear in mind that not being able to kill a distant edgar or leaper is a matter of life and death in R2DA.
Well just cause you can’t do that
Doesnt mean you didn’t bring a secondary
Like seriously, just use the steyr m if your super scared of a Edgar
And also...this is from its summary
The M1A1 Thompson is great at tearing down hordes and having the ability to continuously fire for a while without having to reload. Having somewhat decent accuracy, good damage and being automatic makes this gun a great pick-up for any survivor. Be careful, for it does chew through ammo pretty quick, so try not to miss too many shots.
If you like having the ability to kill multiple targets without having to reload, then this is the weapon for you.
