The Whisperer is a submachine gun featuring high rate of fire, maximum armor penetration, and high accuracy. While, like the Firecracker, it cannot equip a grip to improve accuracy, its innate accuracy is the highest in its class, rivaling the Bosk 3 and Bramson.
The Whisperer's unique SMART mechanic allows successful hit to increases the effective range of the weapon by 20%, which can be stacked up to 10 times; each stack expires after 20 seconds. (However, swapping to a secondary weapon or picking up dropped weapons will also cause the counter to reset to 0).
Overall, the Whisperer is a balanced weapon, and, with the flash hider equipped and the SMART counter maxed out at 10, it can potentially rival weapons such as The Stacker in mid-range gunfights, as well as significantly outperform all other SMGs in terms of damage drop-off.

While the weapon description claims that the Whisper's special mechanic comes from a computer in the gun's silencer, in-game, the player can still swap out the default silencer for other muzzle attachments and the weapon's range-increasing mechanic will still work.
