The USP (German: Universelle Selbstladepistole; English: Universal Self-loading Pistol) is a family of semi-automatic pistols manufactured by Heckler & Koch since 1993 for use primarily in commercial and law enforcement markets. The USP eventually led to the design of the MK.23 that is currently in use by USSOCOM. The USP was designed to be chambered for the .40 S&W cartridge, but can also be chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum and .45 ACP cartridges.

The USP is categorized as a pistol in the Rainbow Six universe.
