FaZe Clan star Swagg believes that an old favorite is “frying” again in Warzone, and it’s something that hasn’t been in the meta conversation for a while. 

When Modern Warfare 3’s integration with Warzone first launched, weapons from the newest CoD title were leading the way. They were the dominant choices in both multiplayer and the battle royale, especially as they were better balanced for the new health and TTK changes. 

Over time, however, weapons from Modern Warfare 2 have come into the fold. Some older weapons, such as the M13C, FTAC Recon, and STB-556 have all proven to be deadly choices – especially after a few rounds of weapon balancing.

There is another old favorite that is proving to be a solid choice, and its something that has been a staple in Call of Duty since the original Modern Warfare days – the MP5. 

Best Lachmann Shroud loadout for Warzone in MW3

That’s according to FaZe Swagg, who highlighted the Lachmann Shroud – otherwise known as the MP5 in-game – as being a top option in Warzone these days. 

“It’s a 40-plus kill game on Urzikstan with the old faithful – the MP5. You guys need to try this loadout,” Swagg said in his February 29 video. “This thing is absolutely filthy, I was frying.”

Like with most SMGs in Warzone, the FaZe star configures the Shroud for better recoil control in close-range fights. That includes using attachments like the Lachmann Pulsar, Lachmann TCG-10 rear grip, and Meer Recoil-56 Factory Stock. 

  • Barrel: Lachmann Pulsar
  • Muzzle: Zehmn35 Compensated Flash Hider
  • Stock: Meer Recoil-56 Factory Stock
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10

The Shroud might be an old favorite, but it isn’t getting much of a look in with WZRanked players. As per the stat tracking site, the MW2 SMG is still way outside the thinking, ranking as the 76th most popular gun in the game. 

It remains to be seen if it’ll creep back up anytime soon, but it’s clearly won Swagg over.
