- “Machine pistols are sloppy, but when I need to fight Flood infection forms, sloppy's the best thing on the menu.”— Private Lewis Allen
These guns are great for dealing with infection forms, just run to give yourself space, then turn and spray. This often leaves only one or two alive. Do not overestimate their usefulness against the brighter yellow infection forms though, as those take 2 or 3 hits from the gun to kill.
Where possible, avoid engaging any other enemy types with this gun. If forced to use these against combat forms for lack of ammo on your secondary weapon, a useful tactic is to come as close as you can while staying out of its melee range, and just holding the trigger until it falls. This is very wasteful ammo-wise however.
- The machine pistols greatly resemble the other weapons in the M6 Series, most noticeably in the grip and trigger guard. However, this is often not obvious at first, leading many players to doubt they are part of the M6 Series.
- It is possible that it was created by the UNSC specifically for dealing with infection forms, especially since it does not seem to excel at killing other types of enemies.
