The Sten in real life.

The Sten is a British-made submachine gun that was used during World War II by the British Army, Commonwealth nations' armed forces and to some extent, civilians. It was a generally simple and cheap weapon, but also being low in accuracy and often accidentally discharging a round; however, it was still very reliable in the sense that it was simple to use and manufacture.

Battlefield 1942Edit

The Sten SMG is a weapon introduced in the Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome expansion, issued to the British and Free French Medic kits. It has a 32 round magazine, a high rate of fire and generally low recoil and accuracy. It is essentially a close quarters weapon. It can kill in about 5-8 shots.

A suppressed variation of the weapon is also featured in the Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII expansion as the Sten and is issued to the British SAS Medic kit.



  • In The Road to Rome, the Sten SMG is held by the magazine much like the Mp18; in Secret Weapons of WWII, the Sten is held from a grip near the barrel of the gun. However, both versions of the Sten have the same reload animation as the Mp18.
