Best Lachmann MP5 Sub Modern Warfare 2 loadout

  • Muzzle: XTEN Razor Comp
  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226mm Barrel
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Ammunition: 9mm Hollow Point
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision 40
  • Receiver: Lachmann Sub (Lachman 556)

We kick off our best MP5 loadout with the XTEN Razor Comp Muzzle, reducing horizontal and vertical to help keep it steady in mid-range encounters. Next up we’ve got the L38 Falcon 226mm Barrel to help with mobility, buffing ADS speed dramatically.

Then we decided to go with No Stock since the faster movement speed plays to the MP5’s strengths, letting you tear across the map and rush enemies. When it comes to ammo, 9mm Hollow Point rounds give the MP5 a nice damage buff, making it even more devastating at close range.

Last up, we’ve gone for the Lockgrip Precision 40, boosting hipfire accuracy, ideal for those situations where you don’t have time to aim down the sight.

Best Lachmann MP5 Sub Modern Warfare 2 class & Perks

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Hardline
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Flash Grenades

Perk-wise, we recommend starting with Double Time to improve the duration of your sprint, and Battle Hardened to reduce the effects of any tactical equipment that comes your way.

The MP5 burns through ammo at a rapid pace, so Fast Hands will let you reload quickly so you’re never out of the action for long. Then, for the Ultimate Perk, we’ve gone for Hardline to help you earn killstreaks that can turn the tide of a match.

Alongside your Perks be sure to equip the Flash Grenade and Semtex, as blinding your enemies will grant you extra time to get your shots in, and the sticky explosives can score some easy kills.
