- — In-game description
The VPR (known as Hades in pre-release) is a Kendall Ballistics fully-automatic double barreled submachine gun featured in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare that was added in the March 28th, 2017 update. It is similar to the MP5K from previous games in many ways, such as the iron sights and silhouette of the weapon, albeit the weapon now has two barrels.
The VPR is the first post-release SMG, and can be used from level 1 if it has been unlocked (either through supply drops, its associated challenge, or the season pass). The VPR is a high fire rate submachine gun that fires two shots at a time. While the damage per shot is low, if both of them connect it ends up being on of the higher damage SMGs in-game (essentially dealing 36 damage per shot). These are still individual shots, however, and they can still miss when hipfired. If a player wanted to retain the highest damage possible, it is advised they aim down sight to assure both shots hit.
Despite what the description implies, the reload time of the VPR is among the slowest in class at 2.65 seconds. Thus, Dexterity may be a good perk to equip when using this weapon as the relatively small magazine size combined with its high fire rate can lead to one depleting their magazine quickly. It would also be wise to equip Scavenger as well, for the same reasons.
Note that all variants for the VPR are currently only available from the quarter master collection (supply drops) -
The Common Sting variant receives the Stockpile gun perk, which allows for more reserve ammo and a larger magazine capacity of 43 rounds. When extended mags are used it gets 64 rounds per magazine, surpassing the capacity of most submachine guns.
The Rare Irascible variant brings the Deathbringer gun perk and Low Rider gun perk to the table. Deathbringer allows the variant to instantly reload when double kills with the weapon are achieved (taking bullets from reserves), useful given the large magazine size, high damage output, and short range of the weapon meaning that the weapon is well suited to achieving consecutive kills. The common gun perk, Low Rider, allows the weapon to have reduced spread during sliding, allowing for a longer range for where hip fire is effective.
The Legendary Wrath variant has the Refresher gun perk and the Steady gun perk. This variant is geared towards aggressive usage - Refresher allows for the user to refill their equipment after 5 kill gun streaks (allowing one to refill their lethal and/or tactical grenades alongside or without the Resupply trait), fitting well into multiple playstyles. The second gun perk is also geared towards aggressive usage - reducing the hip fire spread of the weapon, allowing one to sav.
The Epic Yokai variant is equipped with the unique Assassin Build gun perk and the Creeper gun perk. The epic trait of the Yokai gives a permanently attached Suppressor that also removes the death icon of players killed with this weapon, allowing for an especially stealthy weapon. To balance this, the range of the weapon is automatically reduced, however, this can be partially negated by using the Rifled Barrel attachment. Because of the epic trait, the VPR - Yokai is especially well suited to modes where stealth is preferred, such as Search and Destroy. The common gun perk of this weapon simply increases the weapon's crouched movement speed. It is interesting to note that this variant receives multiple visual changes - mainly the integrated suppressor - but the weapon also sports a dark green camouflage, the Kendall Ballistics logo near the newly added stock this variant has, and the removal of the visual-only Foregrip.
The VPR was added to the Magic Wheel in Zombies in Spaceland and Rave in the Redwoods, and is in the Magic Wheel in Shaolin Shuffle by default. Like the previous DLC weapons added to the game, the VPR can be unlocked for customization by obtaining it from the Magic Wheel or owning the Season Pass.

- The VPR is manufactured by Kendall Ballistics. This is apparent since Kendall Ballistics seems to specialize in modernizing 20th century designs. The Kendall Ballistics logo can be clearly seen on the back of its epic version, the Yokai.
- The name of the epic version of the VPR, the Yokai, is a Japanese word for ghost or phantom; detailing the epic Yokai variant's specialization in stealth-based roles.
