A fan-favorite SMG weapon from a previous Counter-Strike title has been added to Global Offensive.

The MP5-SD was released in CS:GO on August 15, moments after being teased by developers Valve on Twitter.

The official CS:GO Twitter account posted a video of the MP5-SD in-game, along with the caption “Oh THAT’S where we put that…”

Little did players know, the weapon would in fact be added to the game very shortly afterwards.

Originally released in 2004, the MP5-SD was one of the more popular weapons duirng Counter-Strike: Source.

Since then, players have been asking for the gun to be reintroduced in CS:GO, and Valve has finally fulfilled their request.

The MP5-SD is being officially categorized as a silenced alternative to the MP7 SMG.

As of now, it is only available in Offline and in Official Casual and Deathmatch servers, and it is not yet clear when the use of the weapon will be expanded to other modes and servers. 

Here is the official description of the gun as offered by Valve:

Often imitated but never equaled, the iconic MP5 is perhaps the most versatile and popular SMG in the world. This SD variant comes equipped with an integrated silencer and features higher movement speed at the cost of some damage and accuracy on the move.

An alternative to the MP7, the MP5-SD is currently available Offline and in Official Casual and Deathmatch servers. Equip the MP5-SD in your inventory, jump into a match, and let us know what you think!

Real Madrid and Brazil football star Casemiro has announced the launch of his own esports team, CaseEsports.

The defensive midfielder’s team will initially compete in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, debuting in the qualifier for DreamHack Masters Winter on November 3.

The decision to start a team, according to the org’s official website, was birthed from Casemiro’s “enthusiasm, desire to enjoy and passion for this game” – speaking specifically of Counter-Strike.

The organisation will provide a team of sports professionals to enhance the performance of their players. They plan to “lead the European esports scene” through “effort, perseverance and teamwork.”

CaseEsports will be hoping for land1n to make an instant impact.

The all-Brazilian roster that has been assembled includes former paiN Gaming and Tempo Storm players Denis “⁠dzt⁠” Fischer and Paulo “⁠land1n⁠” Felipe, former FURIA Academy duo Yan “⁠yepz⁠” Pedretti and Vinicius “⁠n1ssim⁠” Pereira, and former Imperial player Felipe “⁠delboNi⁠” Delboni.

CaseEsports has already secured the support of multiple sponsors, including peripherals brand HyperX, glasses retailer Hawkers, gaming chair brand Drift, and “fashion soccer” line BŮH.

“This team was created out of a hobby of mine that I really enjoy,” said Casemiro, according to HLTV. “I wanted to take it to a professional level, and just like in my career, I want them to be the best. I know that creating a new team and winning titles will take time and require a lot of work, but I hope that the players and the fans will really enjoy this project.”

Athletes starting their own esports teams is not a new trend by any means.

In the last few months alone, David Beckham launched Guild Esports, Manchester City star Sergio Aguero founded KRU Esports, and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster started Team Diverge.
