Modern Warfare 2 has an arsenal of weapons to master, including the versatile Lachmann-556 Assault Rifle. We’ve put together the best Lachmann-556 loadout, with the ideal attachments, Perks, and equipment.

Modern Warfare 2 sees veteran developers Infinity Ward return to the franchise, bringing an array of weapons to explore. There is something for everyone in the latest CoD entry, but eager players are already getting to work on curating the game’s meta selections.

Before you can get your hands on the Lachmann MP5 Sub receiver, you’ll need to use the Lachmann-556 Assault Rifle. However, don’t underestimate this viable AR, as the Lachmann-556 provides just as much punch in battle.

Here’s how you can put together the best Lachmann-556 loadout in Modern Warfare 2 and bag yourself some victories.


Best Lachmann-556 Modern Warfare 2 loadout

You’ll need to spend some time with this AR before moving onto the popular MP5 version.
  • Muzzle: Forge-Tac Castle Comp
  • Barrel: LM Aurora 90 Barrel
  • Stock: Hmann S9 Factory Stock
  • Rear Grip: LMK64 Grip
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple Vert Grip
  • Receiver: LM-16

We kick things off with the Forge-Tac Castle Comp Muzzle and the VX Pineapple Vert Grip, which improves the horizontal and verticle recoil control, making the Lachmann-556 easier to handle at range.

Then we’ve gone for the LM Aurora 90 Barrel, buffing the overall damage range and bullet velocity. This will allow you to pick off enemies from a distance without having to run into the danger zone.

While range is important, mobility will be vital in close-quarters combat. For this reason, we’ve paired the LMK64 Grip with the Hmann S9 Factory Stock for added ADS, sprint-to-fire, and general movement speed.

Best Lachmann-556 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Scavenger
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Hardline
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Shock Stick

By having Overkill in your class setup, you can add another primary weapon into the mix. We recommend an SMG or Shotgun to cover you in close-range battles.

Scavenger will ensure you’re stocked up on ammo, while Fast Hands will ensure your weapon switches are quicker so you always have the right tools for the job. Hardline is always a great choice to decrease the gaps between killstreaks that can turn the tide of a match late on.

With your Perks now selected, you’ll benefit from using the Shock Stick and Semtex. The former will delay your enemies’ movements, while the Semtex will deal devastating explosive damage.

This can be done by using the Lachmann-762 in MW2 multiplayer matches and bagging plenty of kills.

Best alternatives to Lachmann-556 in Modern Warfare 2

If the Lachmann-566 isn’t quite cutting it, we recommend switching it out for the M4. This is another versatile AR but it packs slightly more punch, which explains why it’s a more popular choice.

On the other hand, if you want to leave the AR category behind altogether, you could go for the heavy-hitting 556 Icarus LMG.
