Yes, the MP5 may lack the sheer firepower of the P90, but the fact of the matter as I have stressed earlier is that it is much easier to master. It's high accuracy at sustained automatic fire makes headshots a breeze, and firing it in bursts can plant rounds over great distances. It is a reliable weapon whatever your skill level and it's cheap price makes room for more tactical ordinances like the various types of grenades.

The P90 and the UMP on the other hand would often require the player to crouch and/or burst (Negating some of the advantages of a 50 round mag) to get that level of accuracy at similar ranges. Skills that many players I know of would rather reserve for the deadlier M4 or AK.

I once went through a phase where I tried to master some of those odds weapons in bot play at home and hoped to convert the people I played with at LANs. Despite the fact that I was indeed doing quite well with those weapons, nobody bothered to follow in my footsteps. Perhaps your CS environment is more open to diversity. But wherever I go in my country, people tend to stick with what works.
