The STG-44 is an Assault Rifle featured in Zombies, available on Nacht Der Untoten, Verrückt, Shi No Numa, Der Riese, and returning in Origins. It is available off the wall in Der Reise, Shi No Numa, and Verruckt for 1200 points. It is a decent weapon, but the player should aim for the head in later rounds, as its moderate damage and fire rate make body shots very inefficient for killing. At higher levels, ammo reserves may be depleted rather quickly, thus it is recommended to swap it out for another weapon on the higher rounds, unless the user is able to easily buy more ammo off the wall, or intends to Pack-A-Punch.
Spatz-447 + Edit
On Der Riese and Origins, the STG can be Pack-A-Punched, upgrading it to the "Spatz-447+". Though its magazine capacity and reserve ammo are doubled, it still depletes it's reserves somewhat quickly. However, if the player remains near the wall-buy location, it may be preferred over the Mystery Box exclusive Assault Rifles and LMG's. A reliable source of ammo makes slightly lessened effectiveness easily overlooked.
Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit
The STG-44 returns in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II map Origins, available off the wall for 1400 points instead of 1200. It can also be obtained for free by using the Golden Shovel. To complement the higher price, both the STG-44 and Spatz-447+ hold 30 more rounds of reserve ammunition and have slightly higher fire rates than their counterparts in other maps.
