The TMP is a fairly weak submachine gun only available to the Counter-Terrorists. Most players tend not to use it because of its low damage and wild crosshair. Due to the wild crosshair, it is very inaccurate. For those reasons, the TMP is uncommon, usually being replaced by the MP5 or P90. However, if used with the right player, it can surpass all the other SMGs and some assault rifles.

- In Source version, the TMP is more accurate, but spray and pray is still not recommended beyond close range.
- Forget using the TMP for medium and long ranges. It is best to utilize this weapon for ambush purposes when the enemy gets very close to your position.
- Use long range weaponry against its users.
- Avoid all close contact with its users.

- High caliber weapons such as Desert Eagle and AK-47 can be used to good effect on TMP users.
- Assault Rifles or the XM1014 auto-shotgun can be useful at close range.
- Due to the weapon's bad accuracy, it is normally easy to take down a Schmidt Machine Pistol user, even at close range. In this case, nearly any weapon is recommended in taking down the user.
