OverviewThe MP5 is a 9mm submachine gun of German design, developed in the 1960s by a group of engineers from the West German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch GmbH (HK). The company, motivated by the success of the G3 rifle developed a group of small arms consisting of four types of firearms (all based on the G3 design layout), where the first type was chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO, the second – using the 7.62x39mm M43 round, third – the intermediate 5.56x45mm NATO caliber and the fourth type – chambering the 9x19mm Parabellum pistol cartridge. The MP5 (short for Maschinenpistole 5) was created within the fourth group of firearms, initially known as the HK54.
The MP5 has made its appearance in The Bourne Conspiracy as a usable weapon. Althought not as effective as its assault rifle counterpart, it can be fitted with a silencer if using the cheat code, "WHATTHEYMAKEYOUGIVE".
The A3 and SD6 variants are also seen in The Bourne Supremacy.
