The best MW2 MP5 loadout is of course down to personal preference, but you’ve come to the right place if you want to know where to start when building one. Renamed the Lachmann Sub in Modern Warfare 2, the MP5 has long been one of the best guns in Call of Duty multiplayer, so it’s worth knowing the best attachments to unlock for it.
The MW2 MP5 is unlocked in the Gunsmith system as part of the Lachmann and Meer weapon platform. In order to get the best Modern Warfare 2 SMG in your loadout, you’ll first need to level the Lachman 762 to level 12, and the Lachman 556 to level 13.
Best MP5 Lachmann Sub loadout attachments
The best MW2 MP5 Lachmann Sub loadout is:
- Muzzle: XTEN Razor Comp
- Barrel: FTAC 14-Sub 12″
- Underbarrel: VX Pineapple Vert Grip
- Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
- Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
Recoil reduction is one of the most important things to consider when setting up your MP5, and the VX Pineapple Vert Grip underbarrel is one of the best choices for this, considerably reducing recoil without really sacrificing anything else.
The FTAC 14-Sub 12″ barrel is a great choice for improving every aspect the MP5 could use a small boost in. Bullet velocity, damage range, recoil control, and hip fire accuracy are all accounted for with this single attachment.
The VLK LZR 7MW laser improves the MP5’s aim down sight speed, aiming stability, and sprint to fire speed, but the optic is completely down to personal preference. While we like the Cronen Mini Red Dot, it might be worth trying a few others until you find one that works best for you.
As a short-to-medium range weapon, the MP5 is great to have in a loadout with a longer-range weapon, such as the Lockwood MK2 marksman rifle or Signal 50 sniper rifle, but you’ll need to carefully select your Modern Warfare 2 perks, as you’ll need Overkill equipped to have two primary guns in your loadout.
We know the MP5 is one of the most widely used guns in the FPS game, and for another, take a look at our MW2 M4 loadout guide. Make sure you meet the Modern Warfare 2 system requirements so you don’t miss a shot.
