The MP5 Returns to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Published

on

If you’ve played the Counter Strike series than chances are you are very familiar with the MP5 weapon, which had been a mainstay within the franchise for years. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive didn’t launch with the MP5 and was instead replaced by the MP7, but now the gun is making a comeback.

Available now in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, thanks to a recent update, is the SD variant, which comes with a silencer and allows for a high movement speed in-game. But, the gun has some drawbacks as it has lackluster damage and accuracy.

You can see the full patch notes below regarding the update that also enabled the Panorama UI for Windows XP, and Vista players.
