is a decently powerful but underused weapon. It has poor performance at longer ranges but can sometimes do just as well as an Assault Rifle
at closer ranges depending on how well you can control the recoil. It is the most expensive of the 3 SMGs with a 15 High Quality Metal
requirement and 1 SMG 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 Rifle
or Python 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 Body
and Python Revolver
can do just as well depending on the situation.
