It is first found inside the submarine bunker during "The Bunker" and "Unwelcome Guests", where Nate picked up many MP40s littered throughout the bunker, left behind after the descendants slaughtered the original German inhabitants. Nate primarily used it as a blind-firing gun for short to medium range attacks against the descendants, and it has a decent reload speed and rate of fire to keep up with them. Oddly enough it has practically no recoil, making it extremely accurate even with prolonged fired.
In the sequel it is found in the ice temple where Karl Schäfer's expedition crew was found, and right before the Path of Light puzzle in the pit where Drake shoots at the gears to stop the spiked ceiling from coming down on him and Chloe Frazer. There is also one hidden in the Nepalese city sewer where the Strange Relic is found. The MP40 is not available in multiplayer.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The magazine of the MP40 was moved back towards the trigger in-game. This was done so the animators would not need to make an animation specifically for holding the MP40, instead placing his hand to grip the magazine as was done in real life.
