The Thompson's appearance in DoD.

Day of Defeat: Source[]

The Thompson as it appears in DoD:S. Notice the front part of the Thompson`s buttstock can be seen.

In DoD:S, the Thompson looks similar to the version from DoD, but with a shinier finish due to the Source engine the game uses. It has a slightly faster rate of fire than its in-game German counterpart, the MP40. However, due to a slightly higher rate of fire, the M1 Thompson has more recoil with prolonged fire than that of the MP-40. Its secondary function is a left-handed punch which deals the same amount of damage as the knife and spade.

In game, the M1 Thompson deals 40 damage to the torso, 30 damage to legs and arms, and 100 damage to the head, making it one of the weaker hitting weapons in the game. It makes up for it with its rate of fire.

The secondary punch attack deals 60 damage to the torso, 45 damage to the legs and arms, and 150 damage to the head.

The M1 Thompson has the exact same damage per bullet as the, M1911, M1 Carbine, MP40, C96, and P38.
