Mac 17 SMG is an SMG in Wasteland.


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)
