MP5A4

The MP5A4 is a craftable, military-grade 30-round submachine gun. Dealing moderate to low damage with low recoil which makes it extremely effective at close range. However, the MP5A4 has one of the widest spreads in the game, limiting its use to short range. Although, like the LR300, this can be countered with a lasersight, making it viable for medium-range combat. The MP5 is currently the only craftable military-grade weapon.

The MP5A4MP5A4 is a decently powerful but underused weapon. It has poor performance at longer ranges but can sometimes do just as well as an Assault RifleAssault Rifle at closer ranges depending on how well you can control the recoil. It is the most expensive of the 3 SMGs with a 40 High Quality MetalHigh Quality Metal requirement and 1 SMG BodySMG Body.
At close ranges, just like other pattern weapons you will focus heavily on the target's movement, however with the fast firing speed of 600 BPM you will sometimes have a hard time staying on target. Remember to not crouch at close ranges as you will make yourself vulnerable with the slow movement speed.
At longer ranges you will likely need to crouch, however with the slow velocity you can sometimes have trouble hitting targets and cheaper weapons such as the Semi-Automatic RifleSemi-Automatic Rifle or Python RevolverPython Revolver will be able to compete against you.
Overall the MP5 can be a great gun and a decent replacement for the AK if you don't have rifle bodies, however the more cost efficient alternatives such as the Semi Automatic BodySemi Automatic Body and Python RevolverPython Revolver can do just as well depending on the situation.
