The MP5 is relatively weak and inaccurate, therefore it is best used in semi-auto mode and in close-quarters defensive combat. Generally it should only be used for personal defense. Anti-tank soldiers should be concerned with anti-vehicle operations and not anti-infantry. Switching to semi-auto mode and zooming in will give you decent performance at medium ranges, and you can use automatic mode in very close ranges.
Just be careful: it doesn't take long to run the clip dry, if you run out of ammo, switch to your pistol and finish off the enemy quickly.
The MP5 was originally introduced in 1966 by the German company Heckler and Koch but not imported to the US till the 70's where it was adopted as the sub-machine gun for military and SWAT forces. The MP5 can be shouldered or fired by hand and is accurate and reliable as well as being flexible with six assembly groups and ambidextrous safety selector lever. It features automatic and single shot modes so making sure which mode you are in can save your life. 1)
