The UMP45 is a submachine gun type weapon in BATTLEGROUNDS.

The UMP, short for Universal Machine pistol, is a submachine gun designed by Heckler & Koch. The UMP is the successor to the MP5, though both are in service to this day. Widely adopted by police and governmental agencies, with wide adoption specifically amongst the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, it also sees popularity with players as an well-rounded, balanced SMG with manageable recoil and decent firepower.


The UMP45 deals the second highest damage of all the SMGs, right behind the Tommy Gun, making it a very viable late-stage gun when fitted out with attachments. Its already small recoil can be reduced even further with a foregrip and compensator, and stealthy players can choose the suppressor instead of using the compensator.
