The Uzi is overall very similar to the Para, having similar high accuracy and fairly low rate of fire for its class. The main differences, however, are that is has much higher base damage and its modifications are unlocked through achievements instead of from Card Drops.
The Uzi's main features are its high base damage and above-average accuracy. In exchange, however, it has fairly average stability. It is also the very last automatic sidearm unlocked (at level 55), and is a fairly expensive investment for newer players. Whilst it has fairly strong visual recoil, this can be compensated for with modifications and skills, and the weapon's relatively low rate of fire helps keep the recoil from becoming uncontrollable.
As its stats can reach the point of competition with some primaries, it can be a very viable secondary option for Very Hard and Overkill in the hands of players who are good at ammo management, or for saw-using Enforcers who must have a dependable secondary weapon for combat - notable, as the Uzi is not as constrained by range in the same way the Locomotive is.
The Uzi is one of a few machine pistols that can reach (45) damage with (60) accuracy and max (92) stability with mods alone. This build is useful if you need a capable secondary to compliment a specialized primary weapon.
Although the main flashlight has a toggle switch, the laser sight component of the LED Combo is pressure-activated, meaning the laser will stay on as long as the pressure switch is depressed. This switch is not placed where it should be, however (on foregrips, magazine wells, etc...) and is instead ziptied to the main taclight, leaving no plausible mean for the user to toggle it without awkwardly moving their off hand off the weapon and gripping the attachment itself.
Upon release, the default reticle of this sight was a chevron instead of the retail version's red dot. After the release of the Gage Mod Courier DLC, it was reverted to the regular sight's red dot.
It is functionally the same as the standard Military Red Dot Sight, but the sight's casing is tan instead of black with the line "A-10" scrawled on near the adjustment knob. The sticker on the lens cap's interior also says "I <3 Payday" instead of having a picture of an American flag.
This sight was based on the Aimpoint CompM2 optic. While it is portrayed as a high-zoom scope in-game, the CompM2 is actually a reflex sight, meaning it offers no magnification in reality.
The Uzi is based upon the IMI Uzi with an integrated front vertical grip. On the real firearm, this grip replaces the two halves of the standard grip panels and has similar contours to the weapon's pistol grip. It is referred to as the K-Grip.
This particular type of Uzi bears resemblance to to some of the custom modified variants that have been created by professional gunsmiths which often include; custom solid butt stocks, added on accessory rails, elevated optics rail that doesn't interfere with operation of the charging handle and a higher rate of fire (base models have a ROF of 600 rounds per minute).
The Uzi featured in Hotline Miami is actually a Micro Uzi, not the full-sized version. While there is a Micro Uzi in PAYDAY 2, it was not included in any Hotline Miami-themed bundle.
