The SG 553 is a Swiss-made assault rifle manufactured by Swiss Arms as part of the SG 550 platform introduced in 1990. Although it is designated as the SG 553 in game, it is more closer in terms of design to the SG 556, a semi-automatic rifle civilian intended for the civilian market, as the real-life CS GO rifle is an improved version of the SG 552 subcarbine rifle.

In game, the CS GO weapon serves as the replacement of the Krieg 552 from previous titles. Unlike its predecessor, the rifle inflicts more damage and can penetrate through armor flawlessly. Furthermore, the scope now provides a 3x zoom, there is no longer a fire rate penalty for using the scope, and using the scope lowers the recoil significantly. The scope now also provides a HUD overlay of the scope, including an aiming reticle, giving the impression of the player actually aiming down the scope.




It is one of the few guns capable of scoring fatal headshots regardless of armor.
