The MP 40 is a submachine gun available in Hidden & Dangerous and Hidden & Dangerous 2.

DescriptionEdit

The MP 40 is light and versatile weapon capable of firing short burst, sustained fire, or a single shot. The weapon fires 9 x 19 mm Luger/Parabellum ammunition out of a thirty-two shot magazine. The weapon, and ammunition for it, are easy to come by. The weapon weighs only 4,710 grams and is easy to control when firing. With a range of 110 yards and a muzzle velocity of 1,200 feet per second, the MP 40 is ideal for clearing buildings and even long distance firefights.

HistoryEdit

Production of the MP 40 began in 1940, hence the namesake, and was often incorrectly referred to as the "Schmeiser", though it was actually manufactured by Erma-Werke. The weapon is a derivative of the earlier MP 38 type, which was very much similar. The MP 40 is merely a smaller and simplified version of the earlier weapon, and remained in production until 1945.

In GameEdit

The weapon is commonly used by German and Italian forces alike, and can be found almost anywhere.

NotesEdit

  • The MP 40 is correctly held by the body behind the magazine, and not by the magazine itself, as this unsettled the magazine and made the weapon prone to jamming.
  • The MP 40's ammunition is exactly the same as that fired by the British Sten Mk. II, yet cannot be interchanged.
