The MP5 (German: Maschinenpistole 5; English: Machine Pistol Model 5) is a submachine gun produced by German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch. It was first developed in 1964, and has since been adopted by many police and military agencies worldwide. It has many different variants, ranging from the MP5SD with an integral sound suppressor to the MP5K with no stock and a shortened barrel. In addition, several versions are equipped with a compact, detachable forward handgrip which further augments the gun's great accuracy.
The MP5 is the default submachine gun of the United States Marine Corps Anti-tank kit. As with most of the other submachine guns, it is possessed of low damage, coupled with relatively high spread and a relatively high rate of fire. It is nearly identical to the PP-19 in most ways, although it has a slightly smaller magazine capacity -- thirty rounds as compared to forty-five rounds.

The HK MP5, (known as the MP5-N in the PS2/Xbox version), is featured as the primary weapon of the USMC's Special Ops Kit. Like all Special Ops weapons, the MP5 is equipped with a suppressor and scope. The weapon is fairly accurate and has a high rate of fire, but doesn't do quite as much damage as the Assault's M4 Carbine, making it well suited for close quarter engagements but not as effective at longer ranges.
In Battlefield Play4Free, the MP5 is a purchasable submachine gun for the Engineer Kit. It features a long range and high accuracy among the submachine guns. It has less recoil than many of the other submachine guns, allowing it to be fired in longer bursts at range.
- The MP5's iron sights are similar to the G3's and the HK53A3's in Battlefield 2.
- The MP5's file name in Battlefield 2 is
USRIF_MP5_A3, meaning that the variant depicted in-game is meant to be the A3 variant.
