The Sub-Machine Gun[1] is an object that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. A GUN-exclusive machine gun, it is a gun-type weapon usable to both enemies and the player.

Description

The Sub-Machine Gun is a black gun with a red dot above the barrel. Like other weapons in the game, the Sub-Machine Gun is massive in comparison to Shadow.

Overview

In gameplay, the Sub-Machine Guns can only be found in certain Stages. They can be wielded by enemies aligned with GUN, such as Big Foot-type foes and Gun Beetles, who will use them against the player.

Sub-Machine Guns can be dropped by defeated enemies that wield them or released from containers. Touching them will make Shadow pick them up automatically and pressing PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX (whether on the ground or in mid-air) fires them. Holding down PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX makes them fire continuously shots as well. As a gun, the Sub-Machine Gun can shoot enemies from a distance (targets within range will be automatically targeted). By comparison to other weapons, the Sub-Machine Gun has a short range and low damage output. A Sub-Machine Gun has a total of twenty shots and once those run out, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another twenty shots by picking up another Sub-Machine Gun.

Trivia

  • The Sub-Machine Gun is based on the Heckler & Koch MP5.
  • The red letters and overall design indicate that the Sub-Machine Gun is supposed to be a MP5.
  • When equipped by Shadow in the opening movie of Shadow the Hedgehog, the gun is somehow cocked akin to a pump-action gun, which is not applicable to sub-machine guns of any type.
