A German SMG chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge. It is one of the most iconic weapons in history although the chances of you holding one today are very slim. Typically found in many films books and video games like Cod or Wolfenstein.
Even though the MP40 was designed by Nazis it is a lit ass gun.

Introduced in 1938, at a time when the rest of the submachine guns in the world was unnecessarily heavy and expensive, the new Mp-38 "Maschinenpistole" of the company Erfurter Maschinenfabrik (Erma) I revolutionize the idea of which a submachine gun would have to be. The Mp-38 and its companion the Mp-40 allowed to establish a production in chain, becoming a very effective weapon for the close combat. He was present from the Invasion of Poland in September of 1939 to the final days of the Third Reich in 1945concept and continued development in the post war era. In the first month of World War II the Germans fielded the revolutionary MP38 weapon. Just a little over a year later the Germans introduced the MP40 machine pistol. While the MP38 changed the way machine pistols looked, the stamped sheet-metal MP40 revolutionized the way they were made. Soon all of the allied nations scrambled to develop and field machine pistols (submachine guns) of their own.
The first inexpensive sub-machine gun to be fielded in war.

In Call of Duty World at War this is known as the noob gun because it takes no skill to use at all. It's the M16 from Call of Duty 4 except it's fully automatic.
It ruins WaWs online play.
Guy 1: Take off the Juggernaut and learn to use a gun that takes skill faggot!

Guy 2: But... But I suck and I can't use anything else except for the most Overpowered bullshit gun in the game!( MP40 )

1. A submachinegun used by the Nazis in WWII.

2. The most noobish weapon in Call of Duty: World at War. About 90% of the people that play that game use it and over half of them just spray with it. A true noob cannon.
