The HMTech-201 SMG is the Field Medic's tier 2 weapon. It is a futuristic machine pistol that, much like its predecessor, fires caseless ammo and is equipped with both a reflex sight and healing dart shooter. The HMTech-201 SMG is only one of the weapons in the HMTech series weapons.

It has a magazine of 40 rounds, plus a constantly recharging dart system that allows it to fire 2 darts before needing to recharge. With a full supply of ammo, it can reload 12 times + its initial magazine.

As a part of the multi-perk weapon system, the HMTech-201 SMG also belongs to the arsenal of the SWAT.

Skill Synergies

  • The Field Medic's level 10 skill Combatant Doctor increases its magazine size to a massive 60, boosting its lesser ZED clearing capabilities in the right hands.
    • Combined with the level 15 skill Acidic Rounds and level 20 skill Battle Surgeon, the HMTech-201 SMG becomes a field-clearing, poisoning machine. One shot is enough to cause most lesser ZEDs to panic from the poison; you have 60.


A lightweight yet robust upgrade to the Field Medic's basic HMTech-101 Pistol, the HMTech-201 SMG has substantial upgrades over the Pistol: it fires much faster, it has a higher magazine capacity, it uses less dart ammo, and it is very cheap to refill. However, the 201 SMG's damage is the exact same as the 101 Pistol's, leaving Field Medics still a bit defenseless against hardier ZEDs.

Headshots with the 201 SMG will still decapitate Clots, Stalkers and Crawlers in one hit, but with its high magazine and rate of fire, it can easily clear out crowds of lesser ZEDs. Medium ZEDs like Husks or Sirens may be difficult to take down, but it can make short work of even them if you aim for their weak spots.
