Scump reveals his MP5 loadout for competitive Modern Warfare

CoD veteran and Chicago Huntsmen star Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has revealed his competitive MP5 loadout for Call of Duty League matches, following the roster’s win at CDL Seattle. 

This year’s Modern Warfare offers unprecedented gun customization for a Call of Duty game. While previous CoD titles have stuck fairly close to a ‘pick 10’ system, the Gunsmith system offers players endless combinations of attachments.

This allows players to gear their guns towards different play-styles, but Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has revealed his competitive MP5 loadout that he is currently using in CDL matches and professional scrimmages.

Infinity Ward
The MP5 has been the pro SMG of choice since the game’s launch.

First up, the barrel, muzzle, laser and optics are all left completely alone, in favor of attachments that focus on the bottom half of the weapon. This is a fairly common choice, as the MP5 does not have any barrels that massively improve range or decrease recoil.

One of the more surprising choices is the Operator Foregrip, which Scump picks over the Commando. The Operator Foregrip massively reduces recoil, at the expense of slowing handling and mobility.

He’s also swapped out the gun’s normal rounds for the 10mm Auto 30-Round Mags, alongside Sleight of Hand. This will up his damage, while enabling him to stay in the action for longer thanks to significantly quicker reloads.

Finally, the Stippled Grip Tape and FTAC Collapsible Stock will significantly reduce ADS time, crucial when playing aggressively in competitive CoD.

The other alternative is to use the Commando Foregrip instead of the Operator. Scump has now opted for the latter, but his teammate, Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon, still prefers the Commando.

It’s fair to assume that this class is best for run-and-gun players, as a result of its focus on damage and speed. If you want to use the MP5 in Warzone, you’re probably more suited to the integrated suppressor barrel and some optics, too.

Regardless, Scump’s setup is one of the strongest possible variants for the MP5, suitable for all budding competitive players who are looking to prove themselves as future SMG stars.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
