The MP40 may have been hit by damage range nerfs in Warzone Season 2, but this loadout is all about securing close-quarter kills. Like most meta SMGs in Warzone, Swagg has equipped attachments that greatly increase the gun’s accuracy. 

When the MP40 is kitted out with the M1941 Hand Stop, 7.62 Gorenko 45 Round Mags, and Polymer Grip, it barely moves when fired. This is particularly important as Swagg’s build utilizes the Recoil Booster and Hollow Point Rounds

Both these attachments help increase your DPS, while the Removed Stock also bolsters your movement speed and hipfire accuracy.  The Krausnick IS01M optic also improves hipfire accuracy as well as enhances the gun’s mobility. 

When paired with Quick, you’ll be zipping around the map and rushing your foes down in no time at all. Lastly, Unmarked greatly reduces the duration your indicator shows up on the mini-map after firing an unsuppressed weapon.
