Semi-auto mode also requires timed clicks for maximum fire rate, as spamming the fire button will 'jam' the weapon in a way, making it fire with short pauses.
The semi-auto mode halves its fire rate (10.0 down to 5.0) in exchange for doubled critical chance (10% up to 20%) and lower recoil, in addition to aiding ammo conservation.
Firing mode cannot be changed during a reload animation.
The Stradavar's design bears a strong resemblance to several machine guns with a drum-pan magazine used during the World Wars, such as the British-built Vickers K, the US-built Lewis Gun, and the Russian-built DP-28.
The Stradavar's last fourteen shots sound slightly different to indicate low ammunition.
Shots from the single fire mode are also a bit louder.
The Stradavar's name seems to be based on Stradivarius, which is a name given to highly-regarded string instruments that were created by the Italian Stradivari family. It's also a reference to pre-WW2 American Mafia culture when it was romanticized that gangsters would carry submachine guns in violin cases.
