- — In-game description
The weapon is unlocked by completing the Fang 45 bounty in the Depot. Once unlocked, it can be used at all levels and is only available in Multiplayer.
The Fang 45's most notable advantage over other SMGs is in its unique rate of fire characteristics. Rather than having a constant fire rate of 800 RPM (like the MP5 and the AK-74u), it starts firing the first six bullets at 923 RPM and the continues at 800 RPM. This allows players to deal the same amount of damage over a shorter period of time, so the perk Sleight of Hand is recommended for the weapon.
