1. Damage & Range

Surprisingly both UMP and M416 possess the same base damage, i.e., 43HP. Having base damage above 40HP is considered good to use. But base damage alone cannot decide whether it is best for every combat or not.

M416 has a bullet speed of 780m/s and UMP has a bullet speed of 400m/s. Because of its lower speed, UMP has a range of 500m whereas M416 bullets can reach up to 1000m.

In terms of the rate of fire, M416 leads with 850 rounds per minute whereas UMP has a rate of fire of 650 rounds per minute. M416 can shoot 14 bullets per second and UMP shoots 11 bullets per second. The conclusion is that M416 deals with higher damage per second than UMP, as M416 DPS is 502 and UMP DPS is 490.

3. Recoil

The stability of the UMP45 makes it more effective at close range. UMP has an upward recoil of 0.2, whereas M416 has an upward recoil of 0.4. Making it difficult to control recoil efficiently even though having higher damage per second than UMP45.

4. Reload

5. Disadvantages

Talking about weapons, we cannot just go on with advantages only. There are a few disadvantages of UMP45 and M416 to know these in more detail.

  • Damage drop-off UMP45 starts at 20m, which is not suitable for mid-range combats.
  • UMP45 can go up to a distance of 480m only.
  • Slightly unstable without all attachments.


The UPM 45 and M416 are both equipped with impressive specifications and contain enough ammunition to eliminate all enemies in one round.

Talking about taking enemies down, M416 works for all ranges counting from close to long-range. And due to the lower bullet speed of UMP, it is not suitable for mid to long-range fights. But UMP45 is better for close-range combats because of its DPS and stability.

Also, using UMP45 gives you the advantage of picking up more ammo than M416. As 0.45mm ammo takes less space than 5.56mm bullets. So by creating extra space you can carry other tactical items like grenades or boosters.

We hope you now have a better understanding of the differences between UMP and M416, and which gun you will prefer on the BGMI battlefield.
