The Type 100 submachine gun is featured in the World War 3 series. Although obselete otherwise, it is "revived" by Jordan Portner, who uses it as a part of his stash of weapons during his time as the Punisher.
World War 3Edit
In the novel, the Type 100 is said to be "obselete", but Jordan Portner "brought it back" after inheriting a stash of weapons his great uncle (who fought in the Pacific Theater of World War II), which contained almost every weapon he captured\handed down to him from the Second World War and in the Korean War, among other wars. From that point on, Jordan and his pals used the Type 100 to fight against the enemies of the 21st century.
- It is the first weapon from pre-20th century wars to be used in modern times.
- It is Jordan Portner's weapon of choice.
- It is later adopted by the Mercenaries.
