Often imitated but never equaled, the iconic MP5 is perhaps the most versatile and popular SMG in the world. This SD variant comes equipped with an integrated silencer, making an already formidable weapon whisper-quiet.
―Official description

This article is about the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive weapon. For the placeholder weapon cut during the development of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, see MP5 SD (cut weapon).

The MP5-SD is a weapon available in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive added in the August 15, 2018 patch. It is a successor to the MP5 seen in the previous Counter-Strike games.


The MP5-SD is a submachine gun featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive as an alternative to the MP7 and is available to both teams. It was added as part of the August 15, 2018 update. Unlike the MP5 that was featured in earlier games, it features an integrated silencer, and can not be removed.

The max audible distance of firing sound the MP5-SD is 1000 units[1].
