H&K MP5 (Heckler & Koch Machine Pistol Model-5) is an original submachine gun in Counter-Strike series. It is available from the beginning and always comes as a free edition weapon. It was renamed to KM Sub-Machine Gun in game.
The MP5 fires 30 rounds of 9mm Parabellum cartridge which leads to low fire power. However, it is well-balanced in all aspects, thus earning the nickname of "The Mother of all Sub-Machine Guns".
MP5 is famous among newbies and even professionals due to its cheap price and low recoil. It is usually used in the first several rounds or when the player is low on money. The MP5 is easy to use and can be very useful depending on the user's skill. In fact, with the right skills, the player can even take down assault rifle or Sniper rifles users.
