Battlefield 3 MP7
The MP7 is a new SMG already in service, and it returns as a personal defense weapon in Battlefield 3. The MP7 packs a 20 round magazine and offers decent balance between range, damage and firing rate. It has an advantage over other SMGs in that it’s very light and mobile, giving it great close range capabilities. The MP7 is available to all classes in Battlefield 3 and is unlocked by playing the co-op campaign.

    The description says it has a 20 round magazine but the stats below show 30 rounds. Which is correct?

      In real life it either has a 20rd mag which sits in the grip without sticking out or a 40rd mag like in the image- it cant have a 30rd mag, in the alpha i dont know about the beta but it visually had the 40rd mag while only showing 20 on the ammo count

        That’s absurd. It should have the 20 round mag by default, and the 40 round extended mag should be unlockable.

        As of a year or two ago, you’d be right, but according to Heckler and Koch’s website, they do now make a 30 round magazine for the MP7 along with the 20 and 40 round ones.

    Its 20 rounds to start but you can get an extended mag for it which brings it to 40.

  4. Petition to buff mp7?
    November 23rd, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Yup, you heard me. On the official bf3 forums there’s a petition going around to buff the mp7. As much as it needs to be fixed, I only agree on the terms that the extended mags should be in the same tier as the flashlight and laser guide slot, because 20 rounds can fire off in like 3 seconds… It should be in slot 2 because I never met a man who desperately needs a flashlight or a laser guide on their gun… I personally like to attach it to my engineer class with a holographic sight and a silencer. What’s the point of a flashlight if you need to get up close anyways to get a kill. Better than alerting everyone else…

    Yeah I also carry it on my engineer, the gun kinda sucks until you get the extended mag. I would say you need about 20 rounds just to kill 1 guy so if there are any other guys around you’re screwed.

    Once you get the extended mag however… lol whole different ball game, so much fun to use. Would highly recommend to anyone who likes SMGs.

    Also I agree, I hate the way the extended mag conflicts with stuff like the silencer but I guess that would just be too pwnage lol and noobs would cry.

    I want the mp7
    But i wish it could be unlocked via the multiplayer
    Component of bf3. Seems to much effort for a
    Gun that gets so many varied reviews
    I think ill stick to trying to unlock the new weapons from the
    Back to karkand dlc. Thanks 4 reading

    The MP7 is pretty legit but yeah it would be ten times better if you got the extended mag after like 20 or even 30 kills. I would take an extended mag over a laser sight any day….

      You can unlock the MP7 by getting a certain total score in Co-op missions. It isnt hard to get, and the score you get on any Co-op mission will go towards your total Co-op score, thus you unlock guns fir multiplayer with. Hope this helped!

    This gun is amazing… Quickest dog tag I’ve ever got. I’ll use this thing on every map, you just have to tweak your play style a bit here-and-there.

    It pretty much goes from being the worst shotgun in the game, to being the best assault rifle.

    the only sucky part is that it shoots so fast, it will shoot the 20 rounds in under 4 seconds. Try this yourself

    the mp7 is a very reliable gun in the game and i find my self falling back on it when everything else fails to pull ahead it becomes a lethal combo when combined with the M1911 hand gun and the M30 gernade launcher give it a red dot sight, extended mags, and a laser light it makes a difference

    This gun is awesone. On Wake Island in those buildings with the back has a orang tarp over it. 5 guys walk in and they all died. This gun is OP. Still be cool to have a exn. mag for the first slot.
