FN P90 (Fabrique Nationale) is a Belgium submachine gun in Counter-Strike series and Counter-Strike Online. It was added into the game since Counter-Strike BETA 3 in 14 September 1999. It is renamed to ES C90 in certain regions.


FN P90 is a Belgian submachine gun fed with 50 rounds of 5.7×28mm. Even though its damage is low, it is countered with its low recoil, very high rate of fire and light body. Its large magazine capacity allows the user to encounter multiple targets at once.

After the Free Update, this weapon becomes a free default weapon in all player's inventories.

P90 1(unused)

Unused buy icon

  • There is an unused barracks icon for the P90, which depicts it with a transparent magazine, instead of the semi-opaque one the game model uses. Its appearance is similar to P90's model in Condition Zero.
  • The barracks icon of P90 illustrates the magazine specification written on the side of the magazine. But all models of the P90 (shop model, view model, third person model and world model) have no magazine specification written on them.
