The TMP is unlocked at rank 58. It has a high rate of fire, moderately quick reload, and low recoil, but this is offset by its very low magazine capacity. Also, the gun's reload time with a completely empty magazine is fairly slow, so Sleight of Hand and Reload Canceling are recommended. Scavenger is helpful when the TMP is being used as more than just a back-up weapon due to its low reserve ammo count. The iron sights of the TMP are chunky, but easy to use due to the tritium yellow front post in the middle. The TMP is effective at all ranges, but accuracy is of utmost importance, as missing too much requires reloading often during combat. Its muzzle flash is another problem since it makes it hard to aim at enemies who are far away; the player can avoid this by using a Silencer. This gun is a poor choice when used with Akimbo, as even with Steady Aim the cross-hairs are very large, and the magazine capacity makes reloading more frequent. When used with Extended Mags, it has improved performance, gaining a 25 round magazine, useful if the player misses a few shots or takes on multiple enemies. However, with Extended Mags the weapon will run out of ammunition quickly unless Scavenger is used, due to the TMP's high rate of fire and low damage.
