The MP5 is a German Submachine Gun. It is unlocked at rank 90.


General Overview

The MP5 is the last Submachine Gun (SMG) unlocked in-game. Damage is moderate, the MP5 dealing a four-shot kill up close. Range is fairly average for its class, although its higher damage value means its four-shot kill range is longer than other SMGs. Rate of fire is quite good at 800 RPM, although is below-average for its class. Muzzle velocity is typical for an SMG at 400 meters per second. Altogether, the MP5 offers a fairly quick time to kill within close quarters out towards close-to-medium range.

Magazine capacity is average for an SMG, at 30 rounds. Reload times are slowest in-class however, at 4.17 seconds for a normal tactical reload. Recoil is quite low, even when measured against other SMGs, making it quite controllable when firing. Aim time and draw speed are the SMG default. Running speed is good but tied with the PP-19 for worst in-class, at 105 percent of the base speed.

Usage and Tips

The MP5 is an exceptionally versatile SMG, offering good performance both within close-quarters and towards the end of its effective range. This is the weapon's main appeal—the MP5's combination of moderate damage, firerate and good recoil makes it quite potent. It is still an SMG though. Longer ranges better left to the Automatic Rifles should be avoided due to the sharper damage drop-off and lower muzzle velocity SMGs have. The MP5's primary drawbacks are its slow reload speed, slow running speed and slightly slower kill time at short distances compared to its peers. Longer reload times increase down time in combat, which can result in untimely deaths. The latter two downsides reduce the effectiveness of aggressive tactics; mobility and fast kill times being extremely important for such use.

As with all SMGs, users should stick to more clustered areas or high traffic areas of the map as they often have shorter engagement distances. The MP5's controllability does permit slightly longer sightlines for an SMG, and thus shooting across the bigger objective points remains doable.


Faithful to its real-life self, the MP5 is versatile, reliable and never a bad choice for any user.
