Where do I find my first SMG?

#1 Posted by louis0nfire (205 posts) -

I'm a Vanguard and I haven't found an SMG yet. I'm not done with all of the recruitment missions, but I heard one can be found early on in one of them. How far in and where can I get it? Thanks

I found a New SMG in the mission where you get Tali.

When do you get that mission? It's not in my Journal yet.

@Louis0nFire: You should get one soon. The machine pistol is the SMG.

I have the machine pistol that I started with...that's what they consider an SMG? Wow, if I had known that I would have chosen a different class.

The Tali mission is on the second set of dossiers, a little later into the game. But honestly, the heavy pistol is better than the SMG anyway. Once I unlocked the assault rifle proficiency, I never used the smg again.

@jmrwacko: So can a Vanguard use assault rifles also?

You can choose between a Krogan Shotgun, assault rifle training, or sniper rifle training later on in the game.

I can't remember when I got mine, but I don't think it's the Machine pistol. Well, unless it fires fully auto without needing to tap the trigger. I can't really remember, but my SMG is pretty good.
 
Though I really, really wish I took Assault Rifle training instead of Shotgun...

Thats only one SMG. There are more later on. I played as an adept, and I had a fast firing high dmg SMG with about 60 rounds in it at at time, that held an extra almost 700.

@Louis0nFire: There's an actual SMG that you find when on the mission to recruit Tali. She is on a dossier in the second round of dossiers that you get from the Illusive man. Has 50 rounds per clip and with upgrades you can hold upwards of 700+ rounds for it as a maximum. Using it now as a Sentinel, its nice.
