CSGO Update Brings MP5-SD In Competitive Matchmaking

A couple of weeks back, Valve announced its newest weapon for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive called the MP5-SD. However, since the MP5-SD is new to the game, the silenced SMG was released only for the game’s casual modes including Deathmatch, Casual matchmaking and even Workshop maps. Well, with the developers releasing a brand new CSGO update today, the MP5-SD is now available to use in the official competitive matchmaking mode.

According to the official post, CSGO Update is now available to all CSGO Players which brings forth not only the MP5-SD to the official matchmaking modes but also introduces a number of much-needed changes and features.
