"Highly accurate and armor-piercing, the pricy Five-Seven is a slow-loader that compensates with a generous 20-round magazine and forgiving recoil."
The Five-SeveN is a Belgian semi-automatic Counter-Terrorist pistol originally available only to the Counter-Terrorists. In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, it was available to both Counter-Terrorists and Terrorists until an update which restricted its sale to the CTs yet again.
Its advantages are high rate of fire, good accuracy and its large magazine size. Despite these facts, the Five-seven is one of the least popular pistols in Counter-Strike and Counter-Strike: Source, but gained popularity with the release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, since it does more damage, unlike in the previous games, and is much cheaper.

The Five-Seven in early Counter-Strike games has a movement speed of 250 units per second, meaning they don't suffer any speed reduction. However, in Global Offensive, the speed has been reduced to 240 units per second.
- Large magazine size (20 rounds)
- Can instantly kill armored enemies if a headshot is scored in CS:GO
- High damage in CS:GO
- Quiet firing sound
- Short reload time in CS:GO
- Relatively cheap in CS:GO ($500)
- High crouching accuracy in CS and CS:S
- Low damage in all CS games prior to CS:GO
- Expensive ($750) (excluding CS:GO)
- Long reload time compared to other pistols prior to CS:GO
- Not very accurate at longer ranges
- You can double tap with this pistol. Using this technique to score headshots will give you easy kills. This tactic works best in CS:GO.
- Since most players use armor, this weapon can be used to an advantage because its ammunition is less affected by Kevlar than most of the other pistols.
- At short range, spray bullets and aim for the head. If a target has full health without a helmet, it will require another shot to any other part of the body. If he does have a helmet, 2-3 more shots may be needed.
- Crouching with this weapon can improve accuracy drastically, even while shooting fast at long range.
- Spraying bullets may work if your opponents are not very skilled or are distracted.
- It is recommended to try and get around enemies without alerting them with the Five-Seven rather than fighting them head on.
- In a pistol round, the Five-SeveN can be a reliable sidearm to wield as users can engage enemies at longer ranges without sacrificing accuracy.
- In CS:GO, the Five-Seven now inflicts more damage but with wider spread. Continuously firing bullets is not recommended.
- Double or triple tap with the Five-seveN and aim for the head. A single headshot will finish your opponent.
- Use any fully-automatic weapon or long range weapon.
- Try to engage users at longer ranges. The Five-SeveN does not inflict sufficient amounts of damage in earlier games and it has lower accuracy in CS:GO.
- Larger caliber pistols, such as the Desert Eagle, can kill a Five-Seven user easily.
- In Source, the Dual Berettas can be used to counter Five-seveN users. If fired rapidly, the 96G Elites can outgun the Five-seveN with little trouble at close range but users may struggle in longer ranges as the Five-seveN has higher accuracy.
- In CS:GO, stay mobile to avoid getting killed by a single headshot.
Comparison to Dual BerettasEdit
- Higher accuracy
- Lower spread
- Higher damage in CS:GO
- Cheaper ($750 vs $800 (CS,CS:S))
- Lower total ammo cost ($100 vs $120)
- Shorter reload time (2.7 (CS,CZ), 3.3 sec (CS:S), 2.5 sec (GO) vs 4.6 sec (CS,CZ) and 3.8 seconds(CS:S,GO))
- Shots fired are much quieter than the Dual Berettas
- Same movement speed (250 unit per second. 240 in CS:GO)
- Same price in CS:GO
- Lower damage prior to CS:GO
- Lower maximum rate of fire (400 rpm vs 750 rpm) (single pistol vs dual pistols)
- Smaller magazine capacity (20 rounds vs 30 rounds)
- Higher ammo cost ($50 vs $20)
- Lower reserve ammo capacity (100 rounds vs 120 rounds)
- Exclusive to Counter-Terrorists
In Tour of Duty, there are 13 CT bots that use the Five-SeveN as their sidearm. These bots are:
- Vern, a cost 1 MP5 wielder.
- Kenny, a cost 1 M3 wielder.
- Leon, a cost 2 TMP wielder.
- Phil, a cost 2 MP5 wielder.
- Oscar, a cost 2 FAMAS wielder.
- Eddie, a cost 2 Scout wielder.
- Kirk, a cost 3 AWP wielder.
- Ray, a cost 3 XM1014 wielder.
- Cole, a cost 3 M249 wielder.
- Ace, a cost 4 M4A1 wielder.
- Jake, a cost 4 AUG wielder.
- Duke, a cost 5 AUG wielder.
- Sandman, a cost 5 P90 wielder.
The Five-SeveN has appeared commonly in the beginning of most missions. This weapon appeared in the following missions:
- This pistol has a very high rate of fire which is equal to the Glock 18 and the P228.
- If the Five-Seven and P90 are both equipped at once, they will draw from one pool of 100 rounds due to sharing cartridges. It is the SS190 5.7×28 mm cartridge which gives the Five-seveN its armor-piercing capability.
- In all Counter-Strike versions prior to CS:GO, it is one of only two guns that will not get an instant kill from a headshot at close quarters, the other being the Glock. This is highly unrealistic, as the 5.7 mm ammunition the Five-seveN uses can pierce through armor in real life. This was probably implemented for balancing purposes.
- The Five-seveN is more accurate and slightly more powerful in Deleted Scenes.
- The firing sounds have changed continuously for every newly released Counter-Strike game.
- Unlike previous Counter-Strike games, Five-Seven is one of the most used handguns in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
- The Five-seveN in Global Offensive has the same draw and reload animations as the P2000, P250 and the Glock-18.
- It is one of the four uncut weapons to retain its real name prior to CS:GO, the others being the Maverick M4A1 Carbine, the MAC-10 and the M249.
- Strangely in Counter-Strike: Source, the Five-seveN's slide is not animated properly.
