Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit
— In game description
The UZI is a weapon featured in Battlefield: Bad Company as one of the "Find All Five!" weapons, requiring a player to download the multiplayer demo for Battlefield: Bad Company and reach Rank 4 or by using the universal code from DICE: cov3r1ngthecorn3r. It is issued to the Specialist kit. It has a 60 round magazine and 180 rounds in reserve. It is fairly accurate when fired in bursts, but due to its high fire rate, burst firing is required for anything outside of close range. However, during urban operations, it is extremely useful as it can dispatch enemies with swiftness while still maintaining a player's low cover profile because of the attached suppressor.
This close range UZI does best on semi-close range. The spread is too high for long range.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit
— In-game description
The UZI is a weapon featured in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for the Engineer kit, requiring 26000 points. It's capable of attaching a Red Dot Sight or a 4X Rifle Scope as a primary specialization. It sacrifices damage and accuracy for an astounding rate of fire (second only to the PP2000 and the MG3).
It can be decent in close-quarters, especially with the Magnum Ammunition Specialization, but its efficiency deteriorates at longer ranges, as its high rate of fire imposes overwhelming recoil, and its relatively low damage make kills in open areas difficult. Its minimum damage was increased to that of the PP2000's base damage to balance out the fact that it fired 100 rpm slower and had nearly twice the recoil of the PP2000.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2: VietnamEdit
— In-game description
The UZI is a weapon featured in the Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam expansion for the Engineer kit. It retains a similar look to the weapon from the base game, however it is more rusted and no longer has its default silencer. It has a 32 round magazine and near identical iron sights to those from the base game. Despite having higher damage than the M10, the UZI has the same rate of fire, but is balanced out by higher recoil, 8 rounds less in the magazine and lower accuracy.
The UZI is a weapon featured in Battlefield Play4Free for the Engineer Kit. It features the third highest damage output of the SMGs, after the AKS-74U and 9A-91, although at the cost of lower range and accuracy and a price of 45,000 or 1,249 for unlimited use. Despite this, the UZI possesses even more firepower than the AKS-74U, due to a much faster rate of fire. Due to the weapon's low accuracy, it is best suited for close range maps like Sharqi and even Karkand, but it will need to be fired in bursts for anything above medium range.
— In-game description.
It has high damage at very close range for a three-hit kill, but has a drop-off to very low damage. It is extremely controllable, with very low recoil and a low rate of fire. This makes possibly the best SMG for accuracy.
Compared to the similar M/45, it has the same damage and rate of fire, but has much less recoil. It is much more expensive however, costing twice as much. It can also mount a foregrip, which the M/45 cannot.
- In the June Beta, the UZI's artwork shows it equipped with a Stubby Grip.
- The weapon used to have a 30+1 capacity, but this was changed to the correct 32+0 capacity.
