The Klobb is a submachine gun based on the real-world Skorpion VZ/61. It was first seen in the first-person shooter GoldenEye 007. As a fairly inaccurate and weak SMG with a small magazine, it was one of the worst and most useless weapons in the game - unless License to Kill mode was enabled, which converted it into a very lethal weapon. It could often be found in pairs making it slightly more useful if your arsenal was relatively weak.
The Klobb was also available as an unlockable weapon in Perfect Dark; the spiritual successor to
GoldenEye 007. A gun called the KLOBB also made an appearance in the action-RPG Too Human, which Ken Lobb, the weapon's namesake, also worked on.
During the development of GoldenEye, the Klobb was named the Skorpion, after its real-world counterpart, but was later changed to "Spyder". Due to legal reasons, the name had to be changed once more. The final name was chosen to honour Ken Lobb (K. Lobb) for his help during development. The GoldenEye 007 game manual was printed before the final name change, and still lists the weapon as the Spyder. In the 2010 Nintendo Wii remake of GoldenEye, the Klobb is renamed "Klebb", because Ken Lobb is in no way related to the new project. The weak official story is that the weapon is now named after Rosa Klebb, a character from From Russia With Love, which has no story-based relation at all to GoldenEye.
