Lachmann Sub Warzone 2

The Lachmann Sub, also known as the MP5 in previous games, still stands among the best SMGs in Warzone 2 despite the adjustments it received. To maximize its damage output and mobility, you’ll need the best meta loadout for Lachmann Sub in Warzone 2 and luckily, we’ve got you covered.

Warzone 2‘s Season 4 update is in full swing and the community is checking out all the new content that was added, including the new weapons.

Following the patch, the Lachmann Sub remains one of the standouts in the meta, despite getting hit with a set of heavy nerfs back in Season 3. The weapon is devastating at close range, so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the most popular guns in the game with a staggering 17.4% pick rate.

But before you take it for a spin in Al Mazrah, you’ll need the best Lachmann Sub loadout for Warzone 2. Here are all the attachments, Perks, and equipment you’ll need.


Best Lachmann Sub Warzone 2 loadout

  • Muzzle: XRK Sandstorm
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10
  • Stock: LM Stockless Mod
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision-40

The Lachmann Sub is primarily a close-range weapon in Warzone 2, but using the XRK Sandstorm 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 Lachmann TCG-10 rear grip and Lockgrip Precision-40 underbarrel to bolster the SMG’s kickback even more.

Next up is the LM Stockless Mod, which improves the ADS speed and sprint-to-fire time, allowing you to get those crucial first shots in.

Finally, it’s also essential to be able to deal with multiple enemies at once, so we’ve opted for 40 Round Mags for extra ammo capacity.

Best Lachmann Sub Warzone 2 perks & equipment

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

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.

Best Lachmann Sub alternatives in Warzone 2

If you don’t like being limited to close range by the Lachmann Sub, you could switch to the M4 Assault Rifle for something more versatile.

Or, sticking in the SMG category, the FSS Hurricane is incredibly effective while also being more effective at mid-range.
