Man. I am trying to hard to play well with the UMP and I am getting nothing but terrible shots off with it. I took a month off from the game and have only been using the PKP LMG since returning (that gun is amazingly accurate.) But the UMP is flying all over the place when I shoot it, even short bursts and it just isn't kiling. I just used the P90 and it seemed far more accurate, is it just my imaginition and the stats lie?
Vrresto posted... P90 beats the UMP any day, and the PP90M1 and MP7 are even better. I'm not even up on the stats, this is just through personal experience. The UMP struggles at mid range.
That is an accurate assessment. Yes, the UMP blows at mid to long range. Moderate recoil and only 17 damage after the drop off makes it useless at mid-long range. Heck, even the PM9 and MP5 fare better at mid and long range, and their recoil is extremely high.
Also, I suppose I should mention that the P90 is also superior to the UMP in every way. Higher fire rate, more ammo, larger mag, more damage [40-20 Vs 45-17) and less recoil.
Basically, the UMP = outclassed. BADLY. But still extremely popular.
