Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 marked the return of contemporary combat for the series and many players’ favourite weapons are returning with it. One of them is the MP5 and our best Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann Sub loadout has all the details.
It’s an iconic weapon both inside and outside of Call of Duty, and it is one of the most powerful weapons you can use out of the box. But, it can be enhanced and perfected with attachments to make it one of the best Modern Warfare 2 guns. To get the best out of your gun, we’ll tell you all the attachments you need to use, as well as what perks, tactical, lethal, and field upgrades to equip.
Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann Sub loadout
The best Lachman Sub loadout for Modern Warfare 2 is:
- Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
- Stock: FT Mobile Stock
- Barrel: FTAC M-Sub 12″
- Muzzle: SA Schalldämper 99
- Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision-40
Our picks for attachments to make the Lachmann Sub even better focus on increasing recoil control, accuracy, and damage. The Lachmann Sub is already very accurate and controllable, so increasing these aspects of the weapon makes it a fully automatic laser, and increasing its range means that you can use it at distances that you would normally only use an assault rifle.
The Cronen Mini Red Dot optic is a basic choice, but it works much better than the basic iron sights that come with the gun. You get a more precise reticle and some zoomed-in aiming capability. The FTAC M-Sub 12″ muzzle boosts bullet velocity and damage range, as well as improves hip fire accuracy and recoil control. This is great for enhancing the Lachmann Sub’s run-and-gun style and allows you to fire extremely accurately without even aiming down the sights.
If you do want to aim down sights, however, the SA Schalldämper 99 muzzle boosts horizontal and vertical recoil control, improving bullet velocity and sound suppression in the process. This is all a great boost to the weapon.
Then, you want to grab the FT Mobile Stock, which boosts your aim down sight speed and stability. In case all of that wasn’t enough, finally, we have the Lockgrip Precision-40 which boosts your hip fire accuracy, and walking steadiness, offsetting some of the previous negatives.
Best Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann Sub class setup
Currently, we recommend the X12 as the best secondary weapon to complement the loadout. It has a quick draw, is accurate, and does enough damage that if you have to swap weapons in a rush you can still compete with the enemy that’s about to bunny-hop around the corner at you.
But, if you are running this weapon in the second slot with Overkill you will be best to use an AR, like our best M4 loadout.
Choosing the best perks can make or break a loadout, so you have to set them up with careful consideration. Since our Lachmann Sub loadout focuses on speed, movement, and spraying down opponents up close the first perk we recommend is Double Time. Because this perk allows you to double the duration of Tactical Sprint, it means that your movement speed can be even faster for longer, something lacking with this build. It allows you to move from room to room with lightning speed or respond to those UAV minimap blips better.
We also recommend Battle Hardened, which will keep you on the move, ignoring the effects of stuns and other tactical grenades.
Fast Hands is our choice for a bonus perk. It makes you reload, use equipment, and swap weapons faster than you normally would. It complements our Lachmann Sub loadout well because, as you may have guessed, it’s all about speed here. Reloading faster allows you to keep pumping out the lead and build those killstreaks – then you can rain cruise missiles from above.
We recommend Ghost for your ultimate perk as it allows you to be undetectable from UAVs, portable radars, and heartbeat sensors. This has always been strong in the series, but it’s especially strong with this loadout because it allows you to keep moving quickly and take the opposing team by surprise when you round the corner not appearing on their minimap.
Stun grenades should be equipped in your tactical slot because they slow the aiming and turn speed of all those caught in its blast radius and make it easy to clear areas and rack up those kill streaks. In your lethal slot, you should equip the Drill Charge. It burrows into walls and blows up anything on the other side, which means you don’t have to expose yourself to get easy kills.
For your Field Upgrade, we recommend choosing Dead Silence because – as in most previous Call of Duty games – it makes your footsteps inaudible. Getting kills while it is active refreshes it, which fits perfectly with this loadout’s design of continually moving around the map.
With this loadout, you should be able to easily improve your K/D ratio and dominate objective game modes.
