Battlefield 4 SMGs
The Battlefield 4 SMGs – submachine guns — are small, lightweight weapons that can be unlocked and used by any class in the game. Battlefield 4 SMGs (or personal defense weapons) come in all forms and sizes, from the classic ones such as the UMP-45, to experimental SMGs such as the PDW-R personal defense weapon. The SMGs offer a lighter and more nimble alternative to regular assault rifles in the game. However, personal defense weapons / SMGs do have limited range compared to larger assault rifles and carbines.

Battlefield 4 SMGs tips
There’s more variety in the Battlefield 4 SMGs than any other weapon group — over 12 different weapons, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. There are smaller SMGs with incredible firing rate suitable for close range combat, such as the M5K and MP7, and there are larger SMGs suited for more general combat, such as the UMP-45. Overall, SMGs are meant mostly for defense, rather than being the main attack weapons.
Depending on the type of SMG and its accessories, it’s possible to have a decent weapon setup for almost any situation. There are also specialized SMGs (or Personal Defense Weapons) such as the silenced AS-VAL, or the high-capacity P90, which is perfect for close quarter, interior combat situations. Unlike most other weapons, the SMGs (or personal defense weapons) are mainly intended for close quarter and urban combat. Always keep in mind that SMGs have less range and deal less damage than dedicated rifles such as assault rifles and carbines.
Battlefield 4 SMGs unlocks
Battlefield 4 Personal Defense Weapons feature their own unlocks like other weapons in the game. Players can unlock scopes for better accuracy and range, or fore-grips for less recoil etc. Some SMGs offer expanded capacity magazines as well. In order to unlock accessories for the SMGs, players need to earn kills with the same weapon. The more kills are earned, the more accessories are unlocked for use. Some of the popular SMG unlocks include the green laser sight, the R2 suppressor, Folding grip, and the tactical light.
