UMP40 is an obtainable Tactical Doll in the game.
After the success story of MP5, Heckler & Koch continued to develop selective firing close quarter combat SMGs, one of the development outcome and the official successor to MP5 is the UMP (Universale Maschinenpistole) series. UMP SMGs are selective fire, recoil operated and fires from a closed bolt, featuring three main variants which are designed to fire 9x19mm Parabellum, .45 ACP and .40 S&W. Compared to the older MP5 model, UMP was advertised to be more reliable, more modern and lower cost, other common features of the UMP SMGs are Picatinny rails placements (Along the top of the gun, both sides and bottom of the barrel) and a foldable buttstock.
UMP40 is the variant that chamber the .40 S&W cartridge, like the other two variants, UMP40 also features a 2-round burst fire mode, together with semi-automatic and fully automatic. Feeds on a 30-round detachable straight magazine, the weapon is able to reach a fire rate of 650 rounds per minute, reaching a muzzle velocity of 320m/s, covering up to 100 metres of effective range. Noted that UMP have their rate of fire reduced in order to compensate for the recoil generated from firing large pistol cartridge, making UMP series one of the slowest firing SMGs on the market.
UMP40 was also advertised to be compact and light weight, while having a total length of 450mm with the stock folded (690mm unfolded), it also weights only 2.3kg when unloaded thanks to the polymer made body frame.
After some FBI agent casualties during the 1986 Miami shoot out, the bureau was on the look out for a better alternative munition type than the servicing 9mm Parabellum, ideally of a bigger calibre but with a manageable level of recoil. .40 S&W was the chosen in the end and gained favour with the bureau. Because of the adaptation into the service in the bureau, it gained some popularity amongst law enforcement units.
Many other special policing units and investigative agencies all over the world have began to procure .40 S&W cartridge firearms into service, mostly in regions of Australia, Canada and the United States, sequentially boosted UMP40's sale. This also explains why unlike the other to UMPs, UMP40 is more commonly found enlisted to service with law enforcement units rather than military service.
SMG UMP45 and SMG UMP9's index number are 103 and 101 respectively, which before UMP40's release many player would have guessed the 102 index number will be UMP40, at last 40 joined the game with the announcement of the event Operation Deep Dive. Though if one followed Renatsu.Z's twitter they may have noticed some posted artwork resemble a different looking character with a UMP SMG long before UMP40's release, such as this twitter post here.
.40 S&W Cartridge is mostly used by law enforcement since it was more suitable with it's potential energy advantage over 9mm Parabellum and a more manageable recoil than the 10mm Auto cartridge of Bren Ten. Many character design features on UMP40 resembles that of a law enforcement unit or investigative field agent, such as the radio handset, smart business dress and the name card.
UMP40's costume design differs greatly from UMP45, this suggests that UMP9 was made after the event of Deep Dive, produced with UMP45 as a template.
UMP40 was officially announced right before Deep Dive in July of 2017, she came fitted with voice lines, which suggests that her as a T-doll was programmed but never introduced into the game, or maybe never had an opportunity to be introduced. UMP40 chibi sprite retains a "Grenade Throwing" animation, which could potentially mean that her original skill was intended to be a grenade of some sort before changing to the current skill.
The official character setting states that UMP40 is a T-doll with super sunny and cheery personality, feels more superior than the others because of her UMP heritage, but she does possess a strong will and strong sense of team spirit. Most of her silly actions and speeches are purely for the purpose of gaining other's attention.
As evident from her secretary and logistic mission quotes, her hobby is sunbathing, which would explains why she appears more tan than the other dolls. Other than sunbathing she also seem to enjoy partying. With her cheery personality she is good at making friends with other T-dolls, perhaps the silly way she act is merely a way strengthen the relationship bonding between comrades. UMP40's best friend seem to be SMG MP5 despite saying that she is designed to replaced MP5 from service, several UMP40's quote mentions MP5.
As a T-doll UMP40 seem to belong in a very specific niche since she does not fit with most ARSMG formations.
Being unable to provide buffs to ARs can be considered a major weakness in ARSMG formations. 500% increased crit rate might seem to be a big value, but SMG units by default only have 5% crit rate, when increased by 500% it only adds up to 30%. 100% crit rate can be achieved by fitting a suppressor, which takes up the accessory slot, meaning the SMG unit can no longer mount optics, which lose out on accuracy.
Though UMP40's own damage stat increases to a relatively high value after 10 seconds, with the 150% constant damage increase after 10 seconds she can contest the MVP title even against SMG SR-3MP in extended combat sessions. But at the cost of evasion rating being lowered, renders UMP40 just as vulnerable as SR-3MP. By leaving the skill inactive UMP40's evasion status also increases up to a maximum value of 50% constant, but her low HP pool does mean she is not as good as the other top tier SMG evasion tanks such as SMG RO635 and SMG MP7.
UMP40's only story involvement is in the prologue to Operation Deep Dive, the "Butterfly event".
A core character who made an appearance in the prologue to Operation Deep Dive, she approached UMP45 who was in a similar situation as her during the Butterfly event, thus the two became close friends.
Obtainable as a chance drop from Supply Crates during Operation Deep Dive (Or guaranteed drop from opening the 777th crate), currently not obtainable in game.
