The Shipley 9mm is a primary weapon for the Soldier class in Blitz Brigade. It is the default primary weapon for the Allies' Soldier, while The Scout is the default primary for the Axis' Soldier. There isn't anything particularly special about this weapon, and the stats prove that; the damage isn't that great, with a rate of fire that is slightly low as compared to other Soldier primary weapons, along with a decent range, and decent ammo capacity. The only real pro that this weapon has is that it has a good critical chance. In battle, the reload time is average, and the accuracy is only average. Overall, this weapon is used by people on a tight budget, have all skill points upgraded, or are just beginning to play. It is based off of the British Sten Mk. II submachine gun.
Other facts: Edit
- When a player gets a kill with this weapon, the kill feed will display not the Shipley's real-life counterpart (the Sten), but will display a Sterling submachine gun instead, which was the successor to the Sten series of submachine guns. This also goes for the BB 23 and the Kemp Type 77, which are all displayed incorrectly in the kill feed.
