AS VAL for PC (That Accuracy, that lack of standing spread, that excellence) Sight + extended mags
UMP 45 for Console (Excellent close range damage , worst ttk ever at range or when silenced) Sight of your choice + Flash Suppressor

P90 for Console (Excellent option too for a more spray n pray style) Sight of your choice + Laser sight + Flash Suppressor

PP2000 also has a sweet spot where it holds it's 25 damage for longer than other smgs , think Ump-45 that is compatible with Ex-Mags and has better mid-range effectiveness. It also has extremely low recoil in comparison to other PDWs


PDW-R is a PDW with Carbine stats (similar to a G53 or SG553 , but with better moving spread and hip fire)

Stats wise it has to be M5K, 900 x 25 is not to be ignored, AS VAL has to be PC thing I guess.

see I play on xbox and I love the AS VAL and the m5k. I find the AS VAL's recoil to be very good and easy to control.

The PDW is pretty much just a carbine with no access to Heavy Barrel. Same damage profile, starting spread, compatible recoil along with the middle-of-the-pack RoF. Oh and the fact that in place of Heavy Barrel you pretty much have to take Extended Mags to keep the weapon somewhat versatile.

Stop thinking of it as a carbine and look at its stats compared to other pdws.

MP5k, because AS VAL is a sniper.

The VAL shouldn't be in a poll like this because it is an assault rifle/carbine really.

The two best true PDWs are IMO the UMP and the PP-2000.

The UMP wins with sheer power and reasonable controllability.

The PP-2000 wins because it has the best hipfire in the game, incredibly easy recoil, a great mag size and absolutely fantastic dropoff range. The TTK is offset by the laser, it's the best weapon to function as a true PDW IMO.
Forum Rules

Hey guys, lets all remember here that this is Symthic, and we are all mature enough to debate a topic without becoming emotional or insulting. Ad Hominim attacks only demonstrate that your position is weak and that you've run out of supporting evidence and serve to undermine your own position. I hope no one here drops to that level.

Game-wise, it's a pdw..

AS-Val clearly wins.

I guess instead of just naming 1 PDW as the best, i'll just rank them

Personally, OFC
PP19: Arguably the best.
AsVal: Good close range, deadly long range, super accurate. This is what a PDW should be like.
M5K: Best CQ PDW
P90/MP7: Great CQ PDWs, out classed by the M5K in terms of DMG output
PP2000: Great for all sorts of engagements, 44 round mag with 650 ROF is great also.
UMP: Its great up close, but slow ROF and only 12.5 DMG makes it pretty bad past 30-50m
The rest of em bellow this line

AS-VAL can be also nominated as "best carbine". ;)
