Max Payne 3 Video Showcases SMGs

Posted on March 26, 2012 AT 07:04am

THE BUZZ: Rockstar has released a new Max Payne 3 video, showcasing the SMG weapon class.

“The Submachine Gun (SMG) class of weapons in Max Payne 3 combines the rapid-fire rate of a much bulkier machinegun with the versatility and punch of a handgun,” says the developer. ”SMGs are ideal for clearing rooms quickly at close-quarters. Also, thanks to the lightweight structure of certain SMGs, users can double the damage by dual-wielding one in each hand and still maintain fluid maneuverability as they go.”

EGM’s TAKE: If you’re after devastating fire power in close quarters then look no further than the dual SMGs. These powerful weapons can rip through a room full of enemies within seconds, however they are pretty useless when it comes to longer range targets, due to a lack of sight targeting and bullet spray. Max Payne 3 has a damn impressive range of weapons for players to go mental with, and we can’t wait to test them out.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
