The Tommy Gun is the primary weapon available to to Gangster class in the VIP and Territory Control game modes. It is, as the name suggests, a Thompson submachine gun. It has a high fire rate (although lower than that of the SMG) and very good player damage. It is roughly twice as accurate as the SMG, and the lower fire rate means that it is easy to keep the spread from getting too high. It is arguably the best machine gun in Ace of Spades, doing about as much DPS as the minigun at full spin, having more ammo than the SMG (which is also used more slowly due to the weapon's lower RPM), and being more accurate than either of them. However, the reload time is very long.

The Tommy Gun has a very high spread cap (0.05), but it might as well have 1.0 as its cap because the low fire rate, clip size, reload, and spread reduction make it almost impossible to reach anywhere near the maximum spread. After draining a full clip and then reloading, the spread will only be at 0.01608. You would need to stand on an ammo crate and repeatedly drain your clip for a very long time to reach the maximum spread.

History

The Tommy Gun was added to the game with the St. Valentine's Day Massacre Pack DLC, which was released on 14th Feb 2013

Strengths

  • Versatile. The weapons very high range and manageable spread increase even when fired for a long period of time make it effective at a distance and its spread and fire rate make it effective at close range.
  • Powerful. The damage this weapon deals is very high for such a versatile gun.

Weaknesses

  • The long and frequent reloads mean that it is all too common to run out of ammo in the middle of combat.
