The MP5K-PDW is a submachine gun that is available only to the Pointman class. It possesses excellent mobility and also has a high rate of fire. Although its damage is an abysmal 28, its recoil is extremely controllable and the spread is minimal and makes for easy handling for new players. As a result, shooter accuracy is greatly maintained regardless of how accurate the weapon itself is. In order to preserve what little damage it has, it is highly recommended to use the weapon at very close ranges, as its range is low as well, which further diminishes the already low damage very rapidly. It is one of the three weapons given to starting players as a temporary weapon (the others being the M4A1 and the SV98). When bought, it can be upgraded to the MP5K Rail (at a small fee) to allow for various modifications and attachments.
Its high rate of fire coupled with low damage also means that ammunition is expended very quickly, even with a moderately-sized 30 round magazine. At medium ranges, the player may find him/herself using up the entire magazine for just one or two kills. Using long bursts of 6-8 rounds will often produce the best results around close range, while bursts of 3-4 are recommend for longer ranges.
Since it is of Ducky rank, it is one of the few rentable weapons in ijji AvA. It can be upgraded and customized at a dramatically lower price than when purchased permanently.
In AVA SEA however, the MP5K-PDW (as the MP5K Rail) is the default gun for the Pointman class, replacing the MP5A3 on other versions.
Many people don't like this gun because it's a low-rank gun and expect that it's garbage. But it's actually (one of) the best Pointman weapon for Ducky ranks along with Uzi.
