Back on April Fool’s Day I ran a joking “review” of the UMP45 where I pulled all the gun’s data from Battlefield: Hardline. I had fun writing it, but what I didn’t touch on is the fact that I’m utterly stupid for the UMP45 and would move heaven and earth to get one.
Among HK cognoscenti, what I’m about to say is blasphemy, but I prefer the UMP45 to the MP5. That’s not based on any practical, real world application mind you – I’ve never operated operationally with either gun, but I have shot both, and the UMP just kicks me right in the gigglebox. “THUMPTHUMPTHUMP” goes the .45, and that makes me happy. Maybe it’s a video game thing, maybe it’s a .45 thing, but I don’t know. When it comes to Kraut buzzguns, the UMP45 absolutely nails it for me.
