What is the best Warzone Lachmann Sub loadout? Few Call of Duty weapons are more iconic than the MP5, and it’s been reincarnated as the Lachmann Sub. This lightweight SMG has been a fan favorite for well over a decade, and is, of course, featured in Warzone. Below you’ll find the best Warzone Lachmann Sub loadout you need to tear up Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, and Vondel.

As with previous iterations of the MP5, this Warzone Lachmann Sub build is a fast-firing, reliable, close-quarters beast with decent mobility to boot, which is why its long been a steady competitor in the Warzone meta. However, a quick trip to the Warzone Gunsmith is a must if you want to turn it into one of the best Warzone guns around.

Warzone Lachmann Sub loadout

The best Warzone Lachmann Sub loadout is:

  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226mm (-0.21, +0.26)
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW (-0.25, -21.23)
  • Ammunition: 9mm Hollow Point (+9.00, +0.70)
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum Mag
  • Stock: FT Mobile Stock (-2.18, -2.71)

As you won’t always be beaming down opponents at short range, ensuring your gun packs a punch is key to getting extra mileage out of the weapon, and that’s what our Warzone Lachmann Sub build looks to do – especially since it already has a pretty manageable recoil pattern.

Our first attachment is the L38 Falcon 226mm barrel, which increases your movement speed when using the weapon, as well as the aim down sight speed. However, it does come at the cost of weakened bullet velocity and recoil control. We recommend tuning this for -0.21 vertical and +0.26 horizontal. If you’d rather, you can use the Lachmman Pulsar barrel for additional mobility and hip recoil control, though you will take a hit to damage range, recoil control, bullet velocity, and hip fire accuracy.

This goes hand in hand with our next attachment for this Warzone Lachmann Sub loadout, the VLK LZR 7MW laser. This provides ADS speed, aiming stability, and sprint-to-fire speed, providing a similar bonus that the L38 Falcon barrel does, giving us the best of both worlds. This is a great attachment for frantic close-range skirmishes that often come down to speed. We’ll also be tuning this towards -0.25 vertical tuning and -21.23 horizontal tuning to get the most out of this attachment.

Next, we recommend the 9mm Hollow Point ammunition for this Warzone Lachmann Sub loadout thanks to its unique crippling effect. While it will reduce bullet penetration, the crippling effect is a worthy trade-off, reducing enemy movement speed and making it harder for them to aim. Hindering your enemy’s ability to escape and fight back is one of the best advantages you can have in Warzone. Be sure to tune this attachment to max out damage range and bullet velocity, with a +0.70 and +9.00 tuning respectively.

As an alternative, the 9mm Overpressued +P ammunition is also a good fit for this Lachmann Sub loadout simply due to the power of the flinch effect. Though it does cost recoil control, the added flinch effect it applies to enemies when shot in the lower body is great.

To further our effectiveness in close-range and against groups, we’ve also chosen the 50 Round Mag, which is a must if you’re playing Quads. Despite it having a negative impact on several handling stats, the ability to have such a large magazine is hard to turn down. If you’d rather have more mobility, then we suggest you pick the 40 Round Mag instead.

Lastly, we’ve chosen the FT Mobile Stock to add an incredible amount of mobility to the Lachmann Sub. Providing additional sprint speed, aim walking speed, crouch movement speed, and aim down sight speed, you’ll be racing in and out of buildings with a lethal Lachmann Sub build at the ready at all times. You really can’t go wrong with the FT Mobile Stock, especially when you’ve got it tuned for -2.70 aim down sight speed and -2.18 aim walking speed.

However, if you’re looking for more ranged effectiveness, then the Lachmann TCG-10 rear grip will give you some much-needed recoil control at the cost of aiming stability. This will help you out at slightly further ranges or if you’re aiming for that perfect headshot on your enemy.

That’s all you need to know for the best Lachmann Sub loadout in Warzone right now, though there’s more to learn for the full-class setup. Nevertheless, you’ll be able to dominate close-range engagements in Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, and Vondel with this submachine gun, and well on your way to having a great time in one of the best battle royale games.

Best Warzone Lachmann Sub class setup

Although the Lachmann Sub is serviceable at mid range, you’ll ideally be pairing it with something that can deal with assailants further afield. For this, we’d recommend something like our Warzone TAQ-56 loadout if you like an AR or our Warzone MCPR-300 loadout if sniping is your thing. If you’d really like to stay up in the enemy’s face, then you could also bring the Warzone Lockwood 300 loadout to finish downed enemies, though you will suffer in long-range fights as a result.

As far as equipment is concerned, a Smoke Grenade is another great option, letting us escape or close the gap when needed. On the lethal front, Drill Charge will make those close-range encounters even easier when clearing through buildings. On the other hand, the Throwing Knife is great for finishing off downed opponents in the blink of an eye.

When it comes to perks, we recommend Overkill, High Alert, Fast Hands, and Double Time. Overkill is a must since it lets you carry two primary weapons, so you’re prepared for anything. Meanwhile, High Alert gives a warning when enemies are aiming at us. Fast Hands and Double Time are all about increasing speed and handling, which are even more important with a close-range Lachmann Sub build. With this combination, you should be well-equipped for any challenge thrown at you.

Best Warzone Lachmann Sub alternatives

Right now the best Lachmann Sub alternative in is undoubtedly the ISO 9mm. Released in Season 6, the ISO 9mm boasts an impressive time-to-kill, as well as ridiculous mobility that has seen it rapidly ascend up towards the top of the best Warzone guns list. Needless to say, you’re going to want to try out our Warzone ISO 9mm loadout.

And that’s the best Warzone Lachmann Sub loadout the battle royale game has to offer. If our pairing options aren’t to your taste, and you’re still looking for something with a bit more power at long range, then be sure to consult our best Warzone Kastov 762 loadout or Warzone Tempus Razorback loadout guides. It’s also worth checking out the best Warzone settings ahead of your next game – just to make sure.
