|For the Mac 17 in Wasteland 2, see Mac 17 (Wasteland 2).|
The Mac 17 is the sturdiest of the compact submachine guns developed in the early 1990s. It shoots .45 caliber slugs from a 30-shot magazine and is known for its man-stopping capabilities. This small weapon is well-suited for close-up firefights.
One of the more useful weapons in early-to-mid game. As damage and chance to hit are calculated per bullet, the effective damage is:
- Single: 4-24
- Burst: 12-72 (if all bullets in the three-round hit)
- Auto: 120-720 (if all bullets hit)
