When you need a bit of extra firepower but don’t have any explosive weapons to use, the MP5 is a great choice. Although its accuracy isn’t the best and it won’t hold back waves of enemies, there’s always ammo laying around for the MP5. Combine that with its grenade launcher attachment, and you have a reliable gun for any situation.
The MP5 might not be the most powerful or deadliest weapon in the Half-Life arsenal, but it has one of the fastest fire rates in the game. This makes it ideal for close quarters combat, where accuracy doesn’t really matter. There are plenty of winding hallways in both Half-Life games, providing plenty of opportunities to let loose with the MP5.
