VEL 46 MP7 SMG in Modern Warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2 brings back the fan-favorite MP7 SMG, this time called the VEL 46. It’s already become an incredibly popular choice, so here are all of the attachments and Perks you need to build the best VEL 46 loadout.

With Infinity Ward back at the helm, a handful of fan-favorite Warzone weapons have returned in Modern Warfare 2. One such weapon is the VEL 46, which most players will recognize as the MP7.

With high mobility and a fast time-to-kill, Modern Warfare 2 players are already loving the VEL 46. If you’re looking to dominate with the MP7, then check out our list of attachments and Perks to help you build the best VEL 46 loadout in Modern Warfare 2.

Best Modern Warfare 2 VEL 46 MP7 loadout attachments

Modern Warfare 2 VEL 46 MP7 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: SA Schalldampfer 99
  • Laser: Point-G3P 04
  • Stock: VEL A-568 Collapsed
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: ZLR Combat Grip

The best Modern Warfare 2 VEL 46 loadout is built to increase the SMGs mobility, allowing you to dart around the map winning fight after fight, but there are a couple of recoil control attachments to keep it versatile.

We’re kicking this VEL 46 MP7 loadout off with the SA Schalldampfer 99 Muzzle, a suppressor that helps with the weapon’s bullet velocity and recoil control — both important stats in any loadout.

Next up is the combination of the Point-G3P 04 Laser, Merc Foregrip, and VEL A-568 Collapsed Stock. All of these attachments combined help with the MP7’s hip-fire accuracy and sprint-to-fire speed, meaning you can land accurate shots before your Operator has fully aimed in.

But, the VEL 46 is still quite bouncy so the ZLR Combat Grip will give you a bit more range, but bear in mind this is still very much a close-range weapon.

Best Modern Warfare 2 VEL 46 Perks & Equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Bomb Squad
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

For Perks to perfectly complement Modern Warfare 2’s best VEL 46 loadout, we recommend the classic combination of Bomb Squad and Battle Hardened. Grenades and flashbangs are incredibly powerful in this game, so this combination is vital to going on high Killstreaks.

Next up, Fast Hands will let you reload the VEL 46 MP7 much quicker which makes up for not using an extended mag. Then, Quick Fix will ensure your health is topped up after every fight.

For Equipment, Semtex is perfect for clearing out rooms or objectives, and Flash Grenades will temporarily blind the enemy and give valuable information.
