Versatile but expensive, the German-made MP7 SMG is the perfect choice for high-impact close-range combat.
―Official description

The MP7 is a submachine gun featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, available to both factions. It is the successor to the K&M Sub-Machine Gun in previous Counter-Strike games, having similar performance and the same role as its predecessor.


The MP7 is a German lightweight personal defense weapon (PDW) that is manufactured by Heckler & Koch (H&K), succeeding their MP5 submachine gun and intended to compete with the P90. It is classified as a PDW because of the round it fires, the 4.6x30mm cartridge, was designed for speed rather than mass, and has good armor-piercing capabilities in real life. The in-game MP7 is modeled after the MP7A1, and is modeled with a longer 40-round magazine.

In-game, it has 30-round capacity and (despite its description) costs a cheap $1700. The weapon is coded to use the same 9x19mm Parabellum rounds that the Glock-18, Dual Berettas, Tec-9, MP9, and PP-Bizon use. As such, it carries a reserve of 120 rounds.

Like other SMGs, the MP7 awards 2× the money per kill than normal ($600 in Competitive Mode, $300 in Casual Mode).

The weapon is unusually heavy for its class (even heavier than the P90 and the UMP-45) and inflicts fairly low damage, making it less popular in the SMG family.

    • Spray at close-medium ranges, burst at medium-long ranges and tap at longer. Aim at the head for maximum efficiency.
  • Switch to your pistol if you have to reload in a fight. The MP7 has a longer reload time compared to other submachine guns (though not as long as the UMP-45 or the P90) so reload only when it is safe.
    • Disengage enemies that uses an AWP unless you can catch them off guard by either flashing, smoking or sneaking behind them.
    • The Desert Eagle can be a good backup pistol for Longer ranges in some situations.
    • Because of it's range, avoid playing at longer distances unless you have to.
