"Small sized submachine gun with a high rate of fire. Lethal package in disciplined hands."
— In-game description

The SMG-11 is a weapon featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is available for use by the Defend Recruits, Smoke, Mute and Amaru.


The SMG-11 is a fast firing weapon with incredibly high damage output, but comes with the downsides of an unstable recoil pattern and a very small magazine size of 16+1. This means that while it dominates in close quarters, it struggles at long range without tap firing.

The Flash Hider and Compensator both effectively tighten the horizontal spread of the 2nd to 4th shots. The Flash Hider is the superior attachment however as it significantly reduces the vertical kick of the first shot, while the difference in the recoil of the 5th to 17th shots is negligible.

  • The SMG-11 has a side-folding stock that is similar to the one on a Mini Uzi, instead of the telescopic stock used on a regular MAC-11.
  • The name SMG-11 is also used in Watch_Dogs, another game developed by Ubisoft.
  • The SMG-11 in reality fires in an open bolt configuration, meaning that one in the chamber would be impossible, unlike the in-game counterpart, which holds one in the chamber. This error is shared with other guns with an open-bolt configuration.
  • The SMG-11 has the characteristics of a normal MAC-11, but has the upper receiver of a Masterpiece Arms MPA10SST, chambered in .45 ACP like its larger cousin, the MAC-10, denoted by the shape of the ejection port.[1]
  • The model appears to be using the 32-round magazine of the MAC-11, even though it has a capacity of only 16 rounds. However, the SMG-12 utilizes it's 32-round capacity. 
  • The SMG-11 boasts the highest DPS out of any current weapon at a whopping 740.83 DPS.
  • The stock is folded when holstered and unfolded when out.
