The Calico M950 is a Pointman weapon first introduced during the 09-21-11 Content Update.
The Calico M950 is most notable for its unique shape, 50 and magazines and high price (a whooping 54,000 euros).
One of the most common evaluations of the Calico M950 is that it is effectively a "buffed" Bizon PP-19, featuring enhances to every stat except magazine capacity. It has comparatively low bloom, high stability, and low accuracy (at least, within its class). It features low damage, high RoF, high capacity, and a quick reload. For its class, it also features medium-high range. Recoil is light and bloom is mediocre, akin to the Bizon. It is recommended to shoot in roughly 3 shot bursts, accuracy is acceptable at medium range.
Unlike the Bizon, the Calico can zoom in and is particularly accurate when doing so, but it does not have a sight nor can it be equipped with one. Also, where the Calico cannot equip a silencer, a Bizon can.
One of the bigger disadvantages of the Calico is that it has very low damage which affects this weapons effectiveness at medium-long distances (which is suprising given that the weapon has a decent range stat for a SMG). Since the damage is so low, any damage loss due to damage dropoff is dramatic, requiring up to ten shots to kill an enemy. As such, it is generally recommended to stay around 7-10 meters away and to continuously move to one side.
The Calico is very useful for the "Prison" themed [AI] stages, since accuracy, damage, and range have significantly smaller roles, and magazine size, RoF, and Mobility have larger ones.
As mentioned earlier, this weapon commands a very high price, and there is some debate whether this weapon's preformance justifies it. Most would argue that it is a minor (and expensive) preformance boost from a usually cheap gun, and thus not recommended for most players. However, for avid fans of the Bizon (and possibly the MP5-PDW), the boost may be enough to justify purchase if used often.
