Best MP5 loadouts for Call of Duty: Warzone

The MP5 rules SMGs in Modern Warfare and Warzone, but what are the best ways to run it in Verdansk? Here, we break down two of the strongest MP5 loadouts you can use.

The MP5 is undoubtedly the most popular SMG in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but Warzone is a different environment completely. While not the out and out dominant weapon it is in multiplayer, it is still one of the most popular SMGs to use in Warzone, and for good reason.

Its high fire rate and impressive damage output make it a solid choice for any close to medium range engagement. While its recoil leaves a lot to be desired, it can be countered with some cleverly chosen attachments.

Best MP5 Loadouts for Warzone

This first loadout is for less confident players, who may struggle to control the gun’s recoil more. It’s also more geared towards mid-range gunfights, so feel free to take a sniper as your secondary because you should be able to hold your own at close to medium range.

  • Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • G.I. Mini Reflex
  • FORGE TAC Ultralight 
  • Merc Foregrip 
  • 45 Round Mags
A clever mid-range class for the MP5.

The Monolithic Integral Suppressor is a key part of this MP5 set up, allowing players to augment their bullet velocity and keep themselves off enemy radars. While it won’t aid your recoil, the Merc Foregrip is the best foregrip on offer to players, offering an unmatched buff to stability and recoil control.

The G.I. Mini Reflex can easily be swapped out for a different sight depending on your preference, but we’ve opted for it on the basis of its versatility.

45-round mags will enable you to stay in the action for longer, as the base MP5 only comes with 30-rounds in its magazines. In Warzone, particularly in squad-based modes, this is not a lot, as players have to combat enemies’ armor as well as their health.

Finally, the FORGE Tac Ultralight increases your mobility while ADS, meaning you’re a much harder target while shooting, as well as being able to move freely while in an engagement.

This second class is for more confident players, who are capable of controlling the gun’s moderate recoil. We’d recommend taking an AR as a secondary for this class because this set up is less viable at longer ranges but stronger up close.

  • Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • FSS Close Quarters Stock
  • Commando Foregrip 
  • 45 Round Mags
Infinity Ward
This second MP5 setup is better for close-range fights.

The Monolithic Integral Suppressor stays, for the same reasons as mentioned above. Players have quickly identified it as a key attachment for the MP5. 45 round mags also stay as, regardless of range, you’ll probably speed through your magazine too quickly if you only have 30 shots.

The Merc Foregrip, however, makes way for the Commando, while the Stippled Grip Tape comes in for the G.I. Mini Reflex. Both these attachments will significantly speed up ADS time, ideal for close-range engagements.

This will be further augmented by the FSS Close Quarters Stock, meaning this MP5 will allow to snap-aim in lightning-quick fashion.

As previously mentioned, this MP5 loses its strength at mid-range, so you’ll want to use a Grau or M4A1 in your back pocket. Up close, however, you’ll be able to outgun any enemies who come your way.

Black Ops Cold War leaks reveal Season 1 maps, Operators, more

Everything from new maps to incoming Operators and plenty more has all spilled out early, with new Black Ops Cold War leaks revealing a bunch of content coming with the Season 1 update.

We’re still a few days out from the arrival of Season 1, though new Black Ops Cold War leaks are coming through almost every day. From classic modes making a return, to unique in-game events on the horizon, we’ve already got a decent idea of what to expect.

However, things haven’t stopped there. The latest set of datamined content has uncovered our first-look at Season 1 maps, Operators, and more. While the names of incoming maps may have been revealed a while back, we now have a proper look at all four additions coming soon.

Additionally, there’s also a unique Season 1 Starter pack that comes boasting some exclusive rewards. Here’s a rundown on everything we now know thanks to the latest leaks.

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 maps

Up first, we’ve got a quick look at four new locations coming in Season 1. They’re bite-sized pictures that simply reveal the theme of each new map. The first appears to be some kind of game show set as camera equipment and bright signs can be spotted throughout.

Next up looks to be a darker map, perhaps something underground or even a subway system given the briefcases nearby. It may have been an evacuation site. Only time will tell for this one.

The third map pictured seems to be a wide-open locale with some kind of rocket in the center. Maybe a testing facility or a fully-fledged launch site somewhere in the United States.

Last but not least, we have a simple map that looks to feature some amount of office space, shelving, and a patriotic statue of sorts. If earlier intel holds up, one of these new locations will be a fresh Zombies experience. The first appears to be confirmed for Gunfight only, meaning a close-quarters design for 2v2 combat. While the remaining two maps are for core multiplayer game modes.

It’s worth noting that not all of these are confirmed to be launching on day one. While the major update is set to introduce a ton of this new content, some of these maps could be drip-fed throughout the season to keep players coming back. 

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Operator Skins

What would a new Season in Call of Duty be without some fresh cosmetics? A few of your favorite Operators appear to be getting some new outfits in Season 1. First up is Woods with a new winter look, rocking some snow goggles, thick gloves, a beanie, and a coat.

Next is Sims who has a more casual look this time around. Rather than dressing the part for a mission, he’s wearing a simple top with some cool shades and a hat.

Last but not least is some love for the Warsaw Pact. Portnova has a new skin this Season with a vibrant red top and a matching beret.

Also part of the leaks is an entirely new skin that could be the level 100 unlock in the Season 1 Battle Pass.

This Operator comes equipped for battle with multiple grenades and ammunition pouches on his upper body. Not to mention an imposing mask to cover his presumably scarred face.

Another new Operator wears a gas mask, only has one eye, and could not be more intimidating in an all-black outfit. 

These come alongside a previously leaked Operator skin for Adler. There’s no way of telling how to unlock these items; some might be tied to the Battle Pass, while others could be acquired through challenges like their current variants.
