Well, another surprise weekend of triple-double XP has ended and it’s time to check out another entry in our Best Warzone 2 Loadout of the Week series. This time around, we’re taking a long look at a Call of Duty classic, and how you can make the most of this particular weapon in the battle royale and MW2 multiplayer, in the MP5 – which is also known as the Lachmann Sub, right now. We’re going to be referring to this SMG as the latter, to help with confusion – but, when we do say MP5, we mean Lachmann Sub, and vice versa.

If you’re finding yourself caught a little high, and a little dry, when you’re running around Al Mazrah, you’re going to want something to tackle long-distance firefights – like the best Warzone 2 ISO Hemlock loadout. However, if you’re prone to rushing around Ashika Island at full tilt, then you’re going to want to take advantage of one of the best Warzone 2 SMGs available in the Lachmann Sub.

Of course, this isn’t going to just apply to the battle royale experience. If you’re someone comitted to the Modern Warfare 2 grind, you’re going to want to keep reading to. With both Call of Duty experiences on the same game engine, this Lachmann Sub loadout should give you the best MP5 across the board.

Anyway, what Lachmann Sub loadout are we even talking about? Well, we’re going to take the advise of Call of Duty content creator ‘tcTekk’ on this one – they’re someone who knows their way around a decent loadout and the following build takes full advantage of what this SMG has to offer.

So, without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about what attachments you should equip on your Lachmann Sub ahead of your next game:

  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226mm
  • Stock: Meer Recoil-56 Factory Stock
  • Ammunition: 9mm Hollow Point
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10

As you’ll be able to see for yourself at the very end of the video below, you’re going to want to maximise the improved recoil steadiness and damage range offered up by the barrel attachment. Additionally, you’re going to want to maximise the aim down sight speed the stock attachment offers you – something vital for close-quarters combat. This is something you should be aiming to echo with the Lachmann TCG-10, while also improving the sprint to fire speed as much as you can.

If you’re wondering what you should pair this with, we recommend an akimbo build for the P890. These sidearms are a fantastic secondary option for a loadout that’s focused on close-range combat. If you want to take advantage of them, you should use these attachments:

  • Trigger Action: Bruen Express
  • Barrel: Matuzek Cottonmouth Barrel
  • Magazine: 12 Round Mag
  • Laser: 1mw Pistol Laser
  • Rear Grip: Akimbo P890

However, if you’re looking for something better-suited to longer-range firefights, we recommend looking into the best Warzone 2 RPK loadout, the best Warzone 2 Victus XMR loadout, or even the best Warzone 2 TAQ-M loadout.

Whether you’re looking for something fully automatic, a sniper rifle, or something where every shot hits hard, we have you covered. If you’re looking for more, though, you should check out our picks for the best Warzone 2 guns here. Oh, and we have a few loadouts for some of the best Modern Warfare 2 guns here, too.
