"Gun-maker Heckler & Koch's Spezialkoffer — "Special Case" — is a clandestine weapon for personal-protection details. Offering the firepower of an MP5K in a concealed package, the Special Case first appeared in the late 1970s and is still available today.

While the MP5K is already a compact weapon and can be carried concealed under a coat or tucked under the arm, the Special Case in theory allows the weapon to be carried in an instantly accessible way. Aim the briefcase and pull the handle-mounted trigger.

It's not ment to be reloaded. It's basically a modern derringer. You get about a second worth of firing spraying some 20-30 rounds at what ever.
Hopefully you'll either neutralize the threat or give your team enough time to pull back/draw iron.
