Warzone’s Season 2 update is finally here, which means it’s time to take a look at the game’s best SMGs.  

Call of Duty has always prided itself on its fast-paced combat and it should come as no surprise that SMGs remain a staple pick in Warzone. While they may not offer the range or accuracy of the game’s deadly assault rifles, they do give players the tools to go on close-quarter tears. This hyper-aggressive playstyle may not be for every player, but having an SMG you can rely on in Season 2 is incredibly important. 


Unlike the AR class, the SMG category is not that varied, and many players often gravitate towards only a couple of picks. Of course, that hasn’t stopped certain loadouts from cropping up. To help you increase your win rate in Warzone, we’ve put together the best SMGs and the attachments you should be using. 

6. Best Fennec Warzone loadout

Fennec SMG in Warzone
Activision / Infinity Ward
This SMG is lethal at catching your enemies in close-quarter fights.
  • Barrel: ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Perk: Slight of Hand
  • Underbarrel: Operator Foregrip
  • Ammuntion: 40 Round Drum Mags

Featuring a vast array of features that makes this gun a perfect choice for any run, the Fennec is a fantastic choice to utilize in any loadout.


Able to tear through multiple enemies at once, the recoil pattern, rate of fire, and exceptional hip-fire will see you through any sticky situation. These attachments will only take this already phenomenal gun further into beast mode.

5. Best MP7 Warzone loadout

MP7 Warzone
Activision / Infinity Ward
The MP7 delivers incredibly accurate hip fire.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FSS Recon
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition 60 Round Mags
  • Perk: Slight of Hand

A lot more MP7 loadouts have started to crop up across Verdansk and while it may not deal as much damage as the MP5, it is still a worthy choice. Unlike most guns in Modern Warfare, the MP7 delivers highly accurate hip fire, making it great for those moments where you don’t have time to ADS. 


Whether you’re tired of using the MP5 or just want to melt squads with the hip fire, then the MP7 is a great choice. 

4. Best Bullfrog Warzone loadout

Activision / Treyarch
The Bullfrog can barrage foes with a never-ending hail of bullets.
  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.4” Task Force
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: Stanag 85 Rnd

The Bullfrog’s massive 85-round magazine and decent range damage make this Cold War SMG incredibly viable. While it may not be as popular as the likes of the MAC-10 and MP5, it’s still great choice for those that want the added ammo count.


After all, having to constantly reload can lead to some rather frustrating deaths. Fortunately, the Bullfrog gives you enough rounds to down multiple foes in just a single magazine. Simply hold down the trigger in close-quarter fights and watch the bullets fly.

3. Best LC10 Warzone loadout

Activision / Treyarch
The LC10 has great mobility and accuracy.
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 13.9” Task Force
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd

The LC10 features fantastic accuracy, great mobility, decent close-quarters damage, and a high fire rate. To top things off this pint-sized SMG also has fantastic handling, which makes gunning for those all-important headshots a breeze.


Having an SMG that also has little extra range damage can also help secure more kills when you’re low on AR ammo or scrambling for your primary.

2. Best MP5 Warzone loadout

MP5 Warzone
Activision / Infinity Ward
The MP5 still takes the crown for the best SMG.
  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

It should come as no surprise that the MP5 is the top pick. In fact, this snappy SMG has remained the top pick since Warzone’s launch. Its high fire rate and incredible damage make it the best choice for those close-quarters firefights. 

This loadout is one the fastest in the entire game, allowing players to quickly sweep corners and flush out any pesky campers. Consider using this loadout to supplement your favorite assault rifle class to ensure you’re dealing as much as possible. 

1. Best MAC-10 Warzone loadout

Mac 10 warzone
Activision / Treyarch
This MAC-10 loadout is great for those close-quarter scenarios.
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.3” Extended
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip 
  • Ammunition: 43 Rnd Drum

Despite receiving some nerfs at the beginning of January, the MAC-10 is a must-use in any player’s loadout. This SMG is an absolute beast, featuring an incredible rate of fire, good damage, and staggeringly accurate hip fire. The MP5 has dominated the top pick for SMGs for so long, but this gun is quickly overtaking the previous fan-favorite.

This loadout will increase the MAC-10’s attributes even further, streamlining the spray-and-pray-type recoil with the Field Agent Foregrip and Agency Suppressor. With a slightly increased shot distance from the 5.3″ Extended barrel, you’ll still be in a spot to be able to pick off foes from a distance with the SMG.

So there you have it, the five best SMGs in Modern Warfare’s Warzone. We’ll be updating this list over time, so be sure to check back here for all the latest updates as changes occur.
