The Spectre can be found in one of the weapons caches duringNumbers. A picture of the Spectre can also be briefly seen during the opening cutscene, along with a picture of the Kiparis.
The Spectre's low recoil and open sights make it a good SMG for medium or even medium-long range shooting. It is also decently accurate from the hip and has a large magazine with high rate of fire.
The high accuracy the Spectre possesses makes it generally more useful than the other 30-20 damage SMGs, all of which have either smaller magazines or higher recoil. It becomes a very powerful stealth weapon when a Suppressor is attached.
Overall, the Spectre is a highly versatile SMG that possesses capabilities outside of just short range, something most other SMGs do not possess.
This weapon is available in Kino der Toten. It isn't one of the best weapons, as it is very weak against zombies. In later rounds, it can take several magazines to kill only a few zombies.
When Pack-A-Punched, this weapon's name changes to the 'Phantom', and features a Reflex Sight. The Spectre is also called the Phantom in the 1997 game, 'GoldenEye 007', which may be a homage as GoldenEye is considered one of the most influential first person shooters of all time. It may also be called such because a newer version of GoldenEye was released on the Wii shortly before the release of Black Ops.
