Lachmann Sub Warzone 2Activision

The Lachmann Sub, which CoD fans will recognize as the classic MP5, is one of the strongest SMGs in Warzone 2. However, to maximize its powerful TTK and solid mobility, you’ll need the best Lachmann Sub loadout and luckily, we’ve got you covered.

Warzone 2 is in full swing and millions of players are diving into the new era of the CoD battle royale. While there are plenty of new systems to get used to, such as the revamped circle mechanics, Warzone 2 once again tasks players with crafting the perfect loadout to secure victory.

One of the standouts in the meta is the Lachmann Sub, which long-time fans will know as the MP5 SMG. The classic weapon is devastating at close range, so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the most popular guns in the game, only sitting behind the Fennec 45 in terms of pick rate.

But before you take it for a spin in Al Mazrah, you’ll need the best Lachmann Sub loadout for Warzone. Here are all the attachments, Perks, and equipment you’ll need.


Best Lachmann Sub Warzone 2 loadout

  • Muzzle: XTEN Razor Comp
  • Barrel: FTac M-Sub 12″ Barrel
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mag
  • Ammunition: 9mm Hollow Point

The Lachmann Sub is primarily a close-range weapon in Warzone 2, but using the XTEN Razor Comp Barrel will keep much of the gun’s recoil in check, meaning it can hold its own in mid-range encounters. Then we’ve gone for the FTac M-Sub 12″ Barrel for more recoil reduction and a buff to the damage range.

Next up is the VLK LZR 7MW, which drastically improves the ADS speed and sprint-to-fire time, allowing you to those crucial first shots in. It’s also essential to be able to deal with multiple enemies at once, so we’ve opted for 50 Round Mags for extra ammo capacity.

Last up is 9mm Hollow Point rounds, boosting the MP5’s hip-fire accuracy for those situations when there’s no time to aim down the sight.

Best Lachmann Sub Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal: Drill Charges
  • Tactical: Flash Grenades

The right Perks are essential for any loadout in Warzone 2, but there is currently no option to choose your own Perk Packages. So, we recommend the Weapon Specialist option for this loadout.

Overkill allows you to bring another primary weapon with you, ideally, a long-range Sniper Rifle or Assault Rifle to strike a nice balance. Meanwhile, Stong Arm lets you throw equipment further and affect fights in a different way.

With an SMG like this, you’ll likely be running around the map, so Spotter lets you see enemy equipment and Killstreaks through walls to plan your next move.

In the Ultimate slot is Survivor, which pings downed enemies on the map so a teammate can finish them off, while also speeding up your own revive time.

When it comes to equipment, the new Drill Charges are perfect for taking out players who are hiding behind cover, while Flash Grenades can cover their screen while you get the drop on them.

How to unlock the Lachmann Sub in Warzone 2

To get hold of the Lachmann Sub SMG, you’ll have to use the Lachmann-566 until it reaches level 16 to unlock the right Receiver.

However, the Lachmann-566 isn’t available until you hit level 16 with the Lachmann-762, so there is some grinding needed to get the SMG.
