A fan favorite from Counter-Strike: Source, the Silenced USP Pistol has a detachable silencer that gives shots less recoil while suppressing attention-getting noise.
―Official description


For the USP before Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, see K&M .45 Tactical.

The USP-S is a silencer-compatible pistol featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive  and was added into the game on the August 14, 2013 Arms Deal update. It is a successor of the K&M .45 Tactical from previous Counter-Strike games.

Overview

The USP (Universale Selbstladepistole or "universal self-loading pistol") is a semi-automatic pistol developed in Germany by Heckler & Koch GmbH (H&K) of Oberndorf am Neckar as a replacement for the P7 series of handguns. In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, like its predecessor, the USP pistol is the USP Tactical, a variant of the default USP, and it is capable in firing 9mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP rounds.

The USP-S was released in the Arms Deal update that brought the M4A1-S, which also features a suppressor. Both weapons are reintroductions of weapons from previous Counter-Strike games replaced by other weapons in Global Offensive, in this case, by the P2000.

The pistol is an alternative option to the P2000, making it the Counter-Terrorists spawn pistol. If equipped, a CT player will receive an USP-S at the start of a round if it is the first round in a half, they died in the last round, or if they ended the last round without a sidearm. If players wish, they may also purchase one from the buy menu for $200, and the weapon is exclusive to the Counter-Terrorists team on the buy menu.

The USP-S has access to a silencer, which is equipped when receiving the weapon, although players can detach and reattach it at will using the secondary fire key. The silencer is best kept on because removing it increases recoil and decreases accuracy, making it overall less effective than the non-silenced countepart the P2000. One reason to remove the silencer is that it noticeably increases the length of the weapon, which may make stealth around corners slightly more difficult.

With the silencer on, the USP-S has high accuracy and moderate recoil. It also has a high running accuracy, but low magazine capacity and reserve ammunition capacity, and a low rate of fire. Its damage is respectable but its armor penetration is low, making it good for long-range pistol round combat but less than ideal for later rounds.

Tactics

  • Due to its limited ammo capacity and reserve ammunition, USP-S users shouldn't spray bullets. To conserve ammo, aim for the head and do not engage several enemies at the same time. Reload frequently so the player will never be caught with a near-empty magazine.
  • Keeping the silencer on is highly recommended since firing the USP-S without the silencer has higher recoil, lower accuracy, and is noisier. An unsilenced USP-S is less effective than the P2000.
  • Equipping this pistol with the M4A1-S is recommended to increase stealth capabilities. However, make sure every single shot counts as the low ammo capacity means they are not weapons made to spray bullets.
  • Due to being a free spawn pistol, the USP-S is sometimes a good sidearm choice for teams in economic trouble.
  • Because of the suppressor's length, if a user wishes to camp with the USP-S, avoid moving too far out as the silencer can be potentially seen by enemies. Move back and aim more into the wall to conceal the silencer and maintain a good field of view.
  • A USP-S in the hands of a good marksman is a viable choice for mid-late game eco rounds, due to it being similar as an M4 in minimum shots required to kill a helmeted opponent.

Felix wants you light and mobile so you're going to be focusing on the MP9. Also important: if you bring me back some prosecco I will owe you big time.

Bugs

  • The USP-S will clip through the Terrorist playermodel's trousers when holstered and suppressed as a Terrorist.

Trivia

  • The "S" in USP-S designates "silencer" or "suppressed".
  • Unlike its predecessor, it is Counter-Terrorist exclusive, whereas the original USP is also purchasable by the Terrorists.
  • The original un-silenced firing sounds are reused from the K&M .45 Tactical of Counter-Strike: Source. All firing sounds were revamped after the August 18, 2016 update.
  • The in-game model was initially missing the protruding threaded barrel that would mount the suppressor. This has since been fixed.
  • The noise-reducing effect of the silencer is somewhat exaggerated. Though in-game shots are depicted as audible but quiet "clack-clack" noises, in reality a silenced gun would still produce 130-145 decibels of noise, which is still as loud as a jackhammer.
