The MP40 SMG in Warzone Pacific

Want to know what the best MP40 Warzone Pacific loadout is? The stock version of the MP40 is surprisingly strong, featuring fantastic recoil control and an impressive fire rate, but with some work, you can elevate it to the next level. With our customised loadout, you can turn the MP40 into one of the best SMGs in Warzone.

The focus of this Warzone MP40 build is to destroy rival squads at close to medium range, ripping apart enemy armour with hard-hitting shots and a lightning-fast rate of fire. In addition, any extra damage we can squeeze out of this SMG will help you take out enemies quickly. We recommend pairing up the best MP40 loadout with the best Bren Warzone loadout as it’s a long-range monster – this combined setup gives you the tools to dominate at all ranges.

When you look at our MP40 loadout, it’s not hard to see why this SMG is one of the best Warzone guns available right now. If you find that the MP40 isn’t for you and want a decent alternative SMG, check out the best Welgun Warzone loadout to learn how to get the newest gun in the game. But for now, we will go over every attachment you should equip to the MP40.

Best Call of Duty Warzone MP40 loadout

The best Call of Duty Warzone MP40 loadout for Pacific is:

  • Recoil Booster
  • VDD 189mm Short
  • Slate Reflector
  • Krausnick 33M Folding
  • M1941 Hand Stop
  • 7.62 Gorenko 45 Round Mags
  • Lengthened
  • Fabric Grip
  • Brace
  • Quick

The aim of this build is to emphasise the MP40’s strengths, namely its fire rate and its recoil control. We don’t need to worry about range as much as your primary weapon should have you covered on that front. One attachment that boosts the MP40’s fire rate is the Recoil Booster, though this is at the cost of a little accuracy. Using this muzzle may seem bad at first, but we’re compensating for the accuracy nerf with other attachments such as the Fabric Grip, which keeps this SMG light, and thus easy to use between sprints.

For the barrel, the VDD 189mm Short hits so much harder at range, and the added bullet velocity means it’s easier to use in that trick medium distance. For the optic, we recommend the Slate Reflector here as it works exceptionally well at close range.

The Krausnick 33M Folding is the best stock here as it improves the weapon’s sprint to fire speed and movement speed, while only affecting the initial firing recoil. Since we’re using the MP40 as a close to medium range support weapon, we recommend you increase the recoil control a tad by slapping on the M1941 Hand Stop underbarrel to bring your aim more on target.

Perhaps the most important attachment to talk about is the 7.62 Gorenko 45 Round Mags. This comes with some hits to the MP40’s bullet velocity, range, penetration, and damage, but the pros outweigh the cons. These magazines enhance the weapon’s recoil control and accuracy. They also boost your movement and aim down sights speed, while raising the gun’s fire rate.

The lengthened ammunition attachment will help you recover some lost bullet velocity, too. For the perks, use Quick to get a flat increase to your sprint speed while holding the MP40. Pick Brace to keep your first burst of shots almost recoilless.

That’s all of the attachments we recommend you use for the best MP40 loadout in Warzone Pacific. While we recommend that you use the Bren as your primary weapon option, there are plenty of other options.
