The Akimbo Chicago Typewriter submachine guns are a primary weapon available in PAYDAY 2 that was added in Update #178.

Overview[]

Chicago Typewriter submachine guns can be dual-wielded in the primary weapon slot for their greatly increased damage output at the cost of precise aiming, stability and the opportunity cost of being unable to use other primaries.

Trivia[]

  • The Chicago Typewriter is based on the Model 1928 Thompson submachine gun with the 50 round "L" Drum magazine. Equipping the Long Barrel and setting it to Semi-Automatic only will turn it into an Auto Ordnance M1927 Thompson, the semi-automatic only civilian version of the Thompson SMG.
    • The in-game name is one of many nicknames for the Thompson, specifically playing off of both its reputation as one of the favored weapons of the Chicago-area mob in the 1920s and 1930s as well as the sound the weapon makes when firing.
  • The Chicago Typewriter is one of the only four non-LMG fully automatic weapons to lack a Custom selective fire function, alongside the STRYK 18c, Swedish K, and MP40. The Typewriter and STRYK 18c, however, do have an in-built selector switch which the Swedish K and MP40 lack. The Akimbo variation however does have this, obviously a bug.
  • The various "Discrete" modifications are misspelled, as they should use the homonym "discreet" instead.
  • The Akimbo Chicago Typewriter's foregrip mod decreases the weapons' stability despite the weapons not being held by the foregrip.
  • The Akimbo Chicago Typewriters are equipped with the standalone version's QD Sling Stock by default. It strangely does not seem to be impacted by the lack-of-a stock, though, as it has the exact same stability as the standalone Chicago Typewriter.
    • Despite this, the FBI Files depict the weapons with their standard stocks.
  • The Akimbo Chicago Typewriters may feel as if they are firing faster than the standalone weapon despite the unchanged rate-of-fire. This is due to the fact that the left-handed weapon will always fire immediately after the right-handed one, resulting in a more rapid, if not doubled, series of discharges.
  • The Akimbo Chicago Typewriters have a faster reload than the single variation, utilising the same speed for full and tactical reloads aswell, unlike the regular variation.
  • The Akimbo Chicago Typewriters can be set to semi-automatic, while the singular version is locked to full auto.
