The MPL is available in Kino der Toten, Five, Ascension and Call of The Dead for 1000 points off the wall. It is an effective weapon for the early rounds, able to kill zombies in as little as 4 bullets, but as rounds progress and zombie numbers increase its small magazine and low carrying capacity often becomes a problem. The MPL has a 24-round magazine in Nazi Zombies. In early rounds (4-8) it is a good purchase because of its low damage per bullet, which can result in many points being earned quickly. In the early rounds, it can be a semi-effective window guarding weapon, as simply spraying across the zombies that are trying to break in will no doubt shred them with little effort.
- In a Call of the Dead trailer, the MPL was seen with a Reflex Sight, Dual Mags, and a Silencer. These attachments weren't included in the final map.
