Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon in-game is a Heckler & Koch MP5K-PDW with a Picatinny claw-rail along the top of the receiver to mount optics. Originally, the model in-game had an ambidextrous 4-position trigger group, indicating a 3 round burst mode, but this has since been changed to a 3-position to represent the available firemodes in the game.
  • The fire selector does not move when changing fire modes and the weapon will fire despite the model being on Safe, due to engine limitations and the absence of a safety mode in game.
  • The model also lacks the threaded barrel for attaching suppressors, although it is still possible to attach a Pistol Suppressor.
  • It is possible to equip both the suppressor and compensator on the weapon, however due to the way the compensator works, it is hidden from view by the suppressor mounted onto it.
  • As with most other weapons in game, the SG5-K must be equipped with the SG5-K Rail Handguard to equip the Universal Flashlight
