Fire rate and time to kill
With an 8.25% higher fire rate the MP9 has the potential to kill faster.
The data reveals that the time to kill increases by 66.% from 2.54m to 76.2m for MAC-10 compared to 33.3% for MP9.
The time it takes for each weapon to empty a full magazine is as follows:
- MAC-10 = 2.40 sec
- MP9 = 2.10 sec
These times are worth noting when spraying and compensating for the recoil.
Recovery time is the take it takes before you become fully accurate after shooting and recoil is zero. There is a significant difference in recovery times between the two weapons and it is worth remembering when playing each weapon. Having the numbers in mind can help improve the intuitive feeling you have when the recoil is zero. Lower recovery times are an advantage when bursting or tapping.
Reload and deploy times
The MP9 is faster at reloading while the MAC-10 has a faster deploy time. Deploy time is the time it takes before the weapon is ready to shoot after switching from another. Deploy time is useful to know when you want to take your weapon out at the right moment as you’re trying to get to a position as fast as possible.
What stands out from this comparison is how well-balanced the two weapons seem to be. It is clear that each weapon has its own abilities. The MAC-10 seems to be better at attacking bomb sites while the MP9 is better at defending them. The MP9 is a more powerful weapon at long-range fights, because of the significantly lower damage dropoff. While the MAC-10 deals more damage at close range.
Hopefully, this in-depth comparison has helped your understanding of the two weapons and how they work.
