The Sterling is a British submachine gun, manufactured during the World War II.
It features a horizontal stick magazine, capable of holding 34 rounds with 68 in reserve. It deals an average amount of damage and relatively good accuracy - it has the smallest spray pattern when shooting in crouch position, hence it is slightly more powerful than the PP-19 Bizon but less than the M12s.
This gun has a high rate of fire and a short reloading time, making it useful in close combat or against multiple opponents. As this weapon is a SMG, it is advised that one should not fire at any target over 100 meters, as the spread of the bullets make it close to impossible to land a hit on the target. Overall, this is a powerful gun at close to medium ranges with it's high rate of fire, quick reload, and unique design. It is excellent for clearing multiple enemies camping in a corner, but at a target at long range, it's best that you stick to a weapon designated for that kind of job.

- The model of this SMG used in CrossFire is a Sterling L2A3.
- It's unknown why CF Europe removed the Sterling-ST version from the Capsule Shop and let the stock version remain in there.
- In CF Vietnam, this weapon will drop when players get killed, despite being a Black Market item. This is likely just a minor glitch.
