Description
The Tatonka is perfect for all CQC combat and holds a high capacity magazine. Easy to use and with a high rate of fire.
The Tatonka is a submachine gun in PAYDAY 2, added with the release of the Gage Russian Weapon Pack.

OverviewEdit

The Tatonka has many unusual characteristics, and as a result there is no one range at which this weapon particularly excels or falls short. For starters, it has a massive magazine size of 64, which would be typically be useful for sustained shootouts or rapid "spray and pray" situations. However, the Tatonka is also plagued by a sub-par rate of fire, which detracts from its usability in both of these scenarios. The Tatonka has a low base accuracy and stability, neither of which can be greatly improved by its limited mod pool, which lacks unique modifications.

In addition to its large magazine, one of the Tatonka's biggest strengths lies in its very high base damage at a whopping 80 per shot unmodified, which is rivaled only by the Swedish K, Jackal, CR 805B and Krinkov. It is also reasonably compact, with a high Concealment ceiling, making it a good choice for stealth or a Dodge build, if the player can get the hang of it. 

SummaryEdit

Pros

  • High base damage
  • Large magazine size
  • Good base Concealment
  • Highest ammo pickup of all 80 base damage SMGs

Cons

  • Mediocre base Accuracy and Stability
  • Sub-par fire rate
  • No unique modifications
  • Relatively slow reload
  • Very hefty price

TipsEdit

  • The Tatonka benefits a lot from being suppressed. A single The Bigger The Better Suppressor combined with The Professional Ace alone can offer a whopping 20 points of Accuracy, making it an ideal setup regardless of whether the player is gearing their build towards combat or stealth.

TriviaEdit

  • The Tatonka is based on the PP-19 Bizon-2. Its in-game name is derived from the Native American's equivalent of "bison", the English transliteration of Bizon.
  • The Tatonka is chambered in 9x18mm Makarov as evident by the stamping on the right side of its 64-round magazine. Despite this, it deals as much damage per shot as some of the more powerful assault rifles in the game.
  • The Tatonka's description blurb falsely claims the SMG is capable of very high fire rates, while the in-game value is among some of the lowest in its class.
