Description
The Chicago typewriter, chambered in .45 ACP, with a vertical grip and a drum magazine, is a great addition to any heister's arsenal. Level locked to 14, it's an efficient SMG secondary that, despite its age, can be fitted with a few mods to suit most playstyles (if those playstyles involve extremely high fire rates and lots of holes, of course).

The Chicago Typewriter submachine gun is a secondary weapon available in PAYDAY 2 that was added in Update #48. It is available to players who have joined the Official PAYDAY 2 Group on Steam.

OverviewEdit

The Chicago Typewriter was added to the game to celebrate reaching 2,000,000 members on the Official PAYDAY 2 Group. It is available to purchase in game to everyone who is a member of the group.

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • Good base damage per shot, especially for an SMG.
  • Highest magazine capacity among unmodified SMGs, along with the Kobus 90, only surpassed by the Para, Krinkov, Swedish K, and CR 805B when they are modded
  • Sizable unique mod pool
  • Can be modded for good Concealment (27)
  • Available early on and fairly affordable

Cons:

  • Average rate of fire compared to other SMGs
  • Abysmal accuracy, and not many mods to improve it
  • Very slow reload for an SMG
  • Worst base Concealment of all SMGs
  • Unique mods focus mostly on improving Concealment, giving limited opportunity to improve combat performance
    • Accuracy is poor when modded for Concealment
  • Flat iron sights, making aiming at long ranges somewhat awkward
  • Sights are mounted far away from the user, making it slightly difficult to effectively acquire and track targets
  • Has considerably high upward kick while firing, despite high stability rating

TipsEdit

  • The Typewriter reloads very slowly, having the SMG Specialist skill mitigates this problem. Acing the skill also benefits the SMG somewhat, though unnecessary since the Typewriter fires relatively quickly by default.
  • The poor accuracy of the Typewriter can hamper mid-range shooting. Switching to semi-auto can remedy this.

In the Hoxton Breakout job, complete the heist on OVERKILL difficulty or above with each crew member using no skills, wearing suits, wielding Golden AK.762 rifles and Chicago Typewriter submachine guns. Unlocks a new skill slot.

TriviaEdit

  • The Chicago Typewriter is based on the Model 1928 Thompson submachine gun with the 50 round "L" Drum magazine. Equipping the Long Barrel and setting it to Semi-Automatic only will turn it into an Auto Ordnance M1927 Thompson, the semi-automatic only civilian version of the Thompson SMG.
    • The Chicago Typewriter is reloaded without pulling back the charging handle. On the drum-compatible models of the Thompson, the bolt acts as a rudimentary "drum lock", and will prevent the magazine from being removed as long as it is not locked back.
    • The in-game name is one of many nicknames for the Thompson, specifically playing off of both its reputation as one of the favored weapons of the Chicago-area mob in the 1920s and 1930s as well as the sound the weapon makes when firing.
  • The Typewriter actually has an angled foregrip, not a vertical grip like mentioned on its announcement minisite.
  • The Typewriter is semi-unique in that it is one of the few weapons that, when previewed in the inventory screen, have its bolt locked back, showing an open chamber with ammo from the magazine waiting to be loaded. The only other weapons to share this trait are the Patchett L2A1 and Lion's Roar, despite the latter being a closed-bolt rifle.
  • The Chicago Typewriter is one of the only three non-LMG fully automatic weapon to lack a Custom selective fire function, alongside the STRYK 18c and the Swedish K. The Typewriter and STRYK 18c, however, do have an in-built selector switch which the Swedish K lacks.
  • The various "Discrete" modifications are misspelled, as they should use the homonym "discreet" instead.
