Appearances[edit | edit source]
Rapidus SMG is a weapon for Prompto used when character-swapping and in his downloadable episode. In his episode, the player must acquire the weapon from defeated enemies or find it from the environment, and after it runs out of ammo the player must procure another one. In the main game, it is always available in the weapon wheel, but after it runs of out ammo, it takes a moment to "recharge". The Windows and Royal Editions have an accessory for Prompto that gives his machine gun infinite ammo: The Clever's Talisman.
The SMG has 100 bullets and is aimed and fired in a first-person perspective with the same buttons as the handgun, and it does not lock onto targets. While aiming Prompto can quickly strafe a short distance in any direction with the dodge button. Upon fully consuming it, Prompto must wait 15 seconds for it to recharge, and it will only recharge during battle and while he is being controlled. It does not gain his equipped handgun's passive effects and suffers a damage penalty when shooting from further away. Its damage scales off Prompto's Strength stat and the shots will spread after 10 consecutive shots are fired, and will spread even further after 30 consecutive shots.
In addition, Prompto can use the Flagrum SMG during his episode while riding on a snowmobile. Flagrum SMG has infinite ammunition, locks on to targets, and almost always hits, though its damage is significantly lower.
The SMG (acronym for Submachine Gun) is a gun-type weapon bought for 6800 GP in Second Town and Giant's Town. It has 30 uses, and also increases a Robot's HP by 45. The damage formula for SMG is equal to 250 points of damage. The gun is Long Range, attacks one group, and never misses.
