CoD AW ASM1 Submachine Gun Overview

The ASM1 is yet another one of the many unique submachine guns that can be seen in the latest Call of Duty title, Advanced Warfare. This weapon is fully automatic, deals okay damage, and a built-in stabilizing mechanic that kicks after firing the weapon in long sessions. Along with decreasing recoil the weapon also slows its rate of fire when fired for extended periods of time which increases accuracy.

Even with the built-in stabilization the ASM1 still has a rather heavy amount of recoil. This is the weapon’s biggest flaw. Somewhat compensating the recoil is the gun’s huge ammo capacity, though. If you equip the extended mags attachment this SMG can hold nearly 1.5x the number of rounds that any other submachine gun can.
