To truly be great at a game you need to know each and every weapon as if you depend on for your LIFE! While everyone can not always get to know the guns and setups that way WE CAN! This guide will help you improve your gameplay while using the MP5 because it gives you info on the weakness and the things that make MP5 do really well. For complete listing of weapons make sure you check out our weapons page.
The MP5 returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It sports a new appearance, with a fixed stock instead of the retractable stock in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, a rail interface handguard, and a tactical rail for optical attachments.
The MP5 kicks hard and dishes out heavy damage. Stats are strong all around, without any glaring weaknesses outside of a strong upward pull through sustained fire. Stick to close quarters and fire off the hip when possible. While recoil is jerky, the MP5 is surprisingly accurate.

MP5 – MW3 Weapon Guide – YouTube
The MP5 is first featured in the campaign in “Hunter Killer” with a Red Dot Sight and Silencer. It is then featured again in “Mind the Gap” with a Holographic Sight and Silencer. It is also usable during “Bag and Drag”. It is also used by Yuri and Price in “Stronghold” with a Red Dot Sight and Silencer. It is the main weapon of Team Anvil in “Black Tuesday”, but is unavailable to the player during that level.
The MP5 is available from the start in multiplayer. The gun features a 30 round magazine and high recoil that is quite unpredictable. Compared to the other SMGs, the MP5 has few merits – the P90 does exactly the same damage with a larger magazine and a slightly faster rate of fire. The MP7 also has a larger magazine, a faster fire rate and less recoil. In practice, however, these shortcomings will generally go unnoticed. The MP5 can be a solid choice before these weapons are unlocked as its stats compare more favorably against the UMP45 and the PP90M1, which have a faster rate of fire and better damage at range, respectively.
Infinity Ward has stated to increase the weapon’s effectiveness via a future patch. The release date or more information on the patch are yet unknown

The MP5 is available in Survival Mode by default and costs $2000. The MP5 is also carried by medium troops from wave 4 (wave 1 on tier 3 and 4 maps). When used right, despite the unpredictable recoil, the MP5 can be used as a cheaper assault rifle, especially if equipped with a Holographic or Red Dot Sight, although burst firing will be required for long ranges. The MP5 is also carried by the Riot Shield Squad troops, but will disappear when killed.

Even though it is fully automatic, the fire selector is set to semi-automatic.
In the levels “Hunter Killer” and “Stronghold” singleplayer reveal, the MP5 has a grip attached. However, the gun is held as if it didn’t have one.
It has nearly the same reload animation in all of the Call of Duty games it’s been featured in for console versions.
Every time the MP5 is seen in the starting loadout for Frost, Burns, and Yuri, it is silenced. This is shown in “Mind the Gap”, “Hunter Killer”, and “Stronghold”.
On the back of the stock, there’s a label with the letter A.
