Grand Theft Auto Online description on Ammu-Nation and Social Club.

The Mini SMG (referred to as "Scorpion" in the 3D Universe) is a submachine gun featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, and in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Bikers update. It is manufactured by Hawk & Little in the HD Universe.

Design

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

The weapon is modeled after the Škorpion Vz. 61 submachine gun, complete with a folding stock and uses 50-round magazines (an odd amount, considering the size of the magazine, which is more suitable to be a 10 or 20-round one).

Grand Theft Auto Online

This article or section refers to "enhanced version" content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V and/or Grand Theft Auto Online, that is absent on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.

V

The weapon in Grand Theft Auto Online is based more on a Škorpion Vz. 82, as evidenced by the straight magazine and 9mm chambering. The magazine capacity, however, has been significantly reduced, with only 20 rounds per magazine (though it has access to a 30-round extended magazine).

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

The Scorpion replaces the Tec-9 from previous games, since it is also a small machine pistol with 50 rounds per magazine, making it a great choice of weapon for rampages or challenges within a time limit. The Scorpion has a lower fire rate compared to other similar weapons in the series.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Mini SMG has one of the fastest rates of fire (with the exception of the Minigun), at about 650 rounds per minute. However, its low damage per shot (barely above that of the SMG) means its damage per second are behind that of the AP Pistol (+5%), with a similar spread. The other SMGs usable in vehicles, while less powerful (-9% for the Machine Pistol, -28% for the SMG) retain a better accuracy when holding down the trigger.

Its ammo capacity of 20 rounds may set the weapon over other fast-firing weapons with smaller capacity, but still requires frequent reloads during combat situations, partially due to the rate of fire. With the extended magazine, the weapon is set on par with most weapons with the same amount of rounds in a default or extended magazine, also making reloads slightly less frequent.

In conclusion, the Mini SMG is best suited for quick attacks and short to mid range engagements, but the low damage and accuracy means it is unsuitable for mid to long range engagements, especially against targets with full-size SMGs and assault rifles.
