Modern Warfare MP5 WarzoneTreyarch/Activision

The Modern Warfare MP5 has made a resurgence in Warzone Season 5, particularly after a secret buff has made it a top-tier SMG in the meta. 

Warzone Season 5 is well underway and although the overall meta has been established with the Krig 6 and the Kar98k on top, there’s still a variety of SMGs that are perfect for those with an aggressive playstyle.

While the MAC-10 remains the go-to SMG for the majority of Warzone players, the Modern Warfare MP5 has become an option for those who prefer mobility over raw fire rate.

However, to get the most out of the weapon, it’s key you run the attachments that push the gun to its limits and give you the best opportunity to dominate your opponents.

Best Modern Warfare MP5 loadout for Warzone

MP5 loadout WarzoneActivision / Treyarch
The MP5 is a fast-paced and high-damage SMG.


  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand
  • Ammunition: 10mm Auto 30-Round Magazine

First of all, it’s key you equip the Monolithic Integral Suppressor in the barrel slot for the huge boost in bullet velocity. On top of this, the attachment provides sound d suppression which is key when attempting to remain undetected on Verdansk.

Next, ensure you’re running the Merc Foregrip to bolster the gun’s recoil and allow you to track targets in medium-range gunfights.

After that, utilize the FTAC Collapsible Stock for a reduction in ADS time and the Sleight of Hand perk so you’re always able to reload in the middle of heated skirmishes.

Finally, round off the setup with the 10mm Auto 30-Round Magazine. TrueGameData recently found that this attachment drastically increases the MP5’s TTK, making it one of the most powerful close-quarter guns in the game.

Best MP5 setup (Perks & equipment)

MP5 WarzoneActivision
The MP5 utilizes the meta perks and equipment.
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Primary: FARA 83
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Our MP5 class utilizes all the standard meta Warzone perks. EOD helps keep you safe from explosive blasts, while Amped gives increased speed when swapping to your primary weapon.

Due to the MP5’s lackluster range damage, the Overkill perk is a must for those that wish to be competitive across all ranges.

Once you’ve secured your first loadout, we recommend switching to a class that has the Ghost perk. This will keep you hidden from any prying eyes and keep you safe from enemy UAV spam.

Rounding things off at the bottom is the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor. Both these items are essential for those that enjoy aggressively pursuing enemy squads and flushing out pesky campers.
