Valve has released a new update for CS:GO, bringing in the iconic MP5 into the game client as well as minor fixes to Panorama.

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 and features higher movement speed at the cost of some damage and accuracy on the move.


An alternative to the MP7, the MP5-SD is currently available Offline and in Official Casual and Deathmatch servers. Equip the MP5-SD in your inventory, jump into a match, and let us know what you think!
