The PDW-16 Hailstorm is the second-generation TR SMG. Like all second-generation SMGs, it has slightly lower dps and much larger magazine than its first-generation cousin, but cannot use the Extended Magazine rail attachment. This leaves the rail attachment free for the highly desirable Advanced Laser Sight. The PDW-16 Hailstorm also has a forward grip slot to counter the slightly higher horizontal recoil than its cousin.
Damage with Range:
125 @ 6 meters
112 @ 17 meters
100 @ 27 meters
91 @ 35 meters
84 @ 42 meters
Hailstorm or Armistice?Edit
Both are excellent in CQC, but the differences do start to show with the Hailstorm having a lower rate of fire and large magazine, while the Armistice having a much higher rate of fire and smaller magazine. The SMG-46 Armistice reward those who can land their shots on the target as it's magazine practically evaporates after a few seconds, while the Hailstorm rewards those who can take advantage of its continuous stream of bullets. Both SMGs cost the same, at 1000 certs, or 700 Station Cash.
