Best Modern Warfare 2 MP5 loadout

The Modern Warfare 2 MP5 is always one of the top guns in Call of Duty multiplayer, and remains as such for MW2, even after some small nerfs

Best MP5 Lachmann sub loadout

The best Modern Warfare 2 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 Modern Warfare 2 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 Modern Warfare 2 MP5 Lachmann Sub loadout is:

  • Muzzle: XTEN Razor Comp
  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226mm Barrel
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple Vert Grip
  • Stock: No Stock
  • 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 L38 Falcon 226mm Barrel is a great choice for balancing out the Vert Grip, as it improves aim down sight speed, and negatively impacts recoil management – but that’s what your underbarrel choice is for.

No Stock allows for faster movement still, 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.
