The MAC11 is one of Mason's starting weapons on board the Rusalka during the mission "Redemption", with Extended Mags and a Red Dot Sight. Enemies will occasionally drop MAC11s with a Red Dot Sight or Extended Mags. There is also a MAC11 with Dual Wield found near the helipad.
The MAC11 is unlocked for purchase at level 11. The MAC11 has relatively low recoil, and moderate damage comparable to most other SMGs in Call of Duty: Black Ops. It also features the shortest reload time out of all the SMGs when not using reload cancel. The switch time, comparable to a Handgun's, is faster than most other SMGs as well.
Like some other submachine guns, the MAC11 has a 20-round magazine, and due to its high fire rate, it is emptied very quickly. The three reserve magazines only provide an additional 60 rounds, so ammo reserves may run low quickly. The low magazine size can be negated by purchasing the Extended Mag attachment, which gives the weapon a 30-round magazine. Scavenger may help by providing additional reserve ammo as well, and Sleight of Hand will speed up the frequent reloads.
Rapid Fire can be a very effective attachment to use with the MAC11, due to its low recoil. However, the magazine will be emptied quite rapidly while using this attachment. Using Sleight of Hand and Scavenger combined with its already fast reload will counter some of these disadvantages. The use of Extended Mags and a Grip via Warlord is a good pair, as the MAC11 will have the 30 round magazine it needs and will also have virtually no recoil.
A rarely seen, but effective attachment for the MAC11 is Dual Wield. This gives the player much more killing power at the cost of accuracy, but makes for a great offensive class when paired with Steady Aim.
The iron sights are generally unobstructed and easy to use, although at 1.2x zoom, they provide slightly less magnification than the typical 1.3x of most other weapons, though this could be seen as an advantage in close combat, where the MAC11 excels.
Overall, with its fast fire rate, reload and switch time, the MAC11 is well suited to a run-and-gun style of play. Despite its decent stats, however, the MAC11 is generally overlooked by players due to the more powerful or popular submachine guns in the game, such as the AK74u and the Spectre.
Call of Duty: Black Ops: DeclassifiedEdit
The MAC11 also appears in Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified.
- When attaching a Grip onto the MAC11, it adds a stock onto the end of it. Originally, this stock was meant to be on the weapon in its folded position without the grip attachment, though this was removed. On the Wii version however, the stock is folded when a grip is applied. It also still appears in folded position when using Dual Wield.
- As with all other 30-20 damage SMGs, the MAC11 with Rapid Fire has no effect on the Wii.
- The pickup and Create-A-Class icons both show the MAC11 with a folded stock and no magazine.
- When an AI holds the MAC11, he holds it as though it was a larger gun, resulting in their hand gripping onto air.
- The MAC11 is the only SMG that accepts the Red Dot and Reflex sights, but not the ACOG.
- The MAC11 is the only primary weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops, which is held with only one hand when not Dual Wielded. It is also one of the few weapons held with one hand, the others being the ASP, the Ray Gun and the Ballistic Knife.
- The MAC11 has a M16 style selector switch on the left side of the weapon, this being most noticeable in its Create-A-Class picture.
- The MAC11 is held with two hands when running: this can be easily seen by changing the Field of View.
