In Insurgency, the MP5K is a sub-machine gun available to the Security faction. The high rate of fire, low recoil, open iron sights, and short length of the MP5K makes it highly effective for short range engagements and free-aim firing. However, the MP5K is also limited by the low damage, short damage drop-off distance, and low penetration power of the 9mm round.
- The first person model and world model of the MP5K are oversized compared to its real life size and the size of other weapons.
- The model is based off of the MP5KA4, hinted by its four-position trigger group.
- In reality, it would be extremely awkward to perform a tactical reload on an MP5K, due to the way the bolt was designed. The bolt rides directly on top of the feed lips of the magazine, blocking a full magazine's entry into the magazine well. This prevents a fully loaded magazine from properly being seated if the bolt is in battery. This is why it is recommended that the bolt is to be locked back during tactical reloads, or a partially full magazine to be inserted. Either way, a 30+1 capacity would be extremely difficult to achieve in real life.
