Valve released a patch update titled ‘Silent but Deadly’ on 15th August, finally bringing back the MP5 Sub-Machine Gun at the player's disposal. 

The gun has been renamed from its former MP5 to MP5-SD and seems to be accessorized with a silencer on it. It features better movement speed at the cost of damage and accuracy.  


Quite a popular choice in CS-1.6 and CS-Source due to its low recoil, lower cost and a high rate of fire. The Introduction of MP5-SD leads to the discontinuation of MP7

For now, the MP5-SD is only available to the players in offline mode and also in official casual and deathmatch servers.

Some other changes within the update are as follows: 


  • The UI is now enabled for Windows XP and Vista game clients. 
  • Enabled lobby chat when accepting match popup is active. 
  • Fixed various multi-line messages clipping last line of text. 
  • Fixed unresponsive keyboard after typing and pressing 'send' in the chat panel. 
  • Allow sending a Steam message to recent teammates using new Steam chat. 


  • Fixed a bug causing some players, especially on DSL connections, to experience high packet loss due to packets being delivered out of order. 


  • Lobbies advertised to nearby players and Steam Groups members will now expire after 5 minutes of the lobby leader’s inactivity. 
  • Added a way to start advertising single-user lobbies to nearby players and Steam Groups members from the permissions dialogue. 


  • This update includes a change to “csgo.exe” which, while signed with Valve digital certificate, may still trigger warnings in certain anti-virus packages and require users to manually change their AV software settings to update correctly.

Let's see how the new MP5-SD plays out in the weeks to come!
