There are many options in Warzone 2 when it comes to SMGs, which may leave players wondering which one to use. To help you decide here’s every SMG in Warzone 2 ranked, including the best SMGs to use in the game.

Warzone 2 can be overwhelming when it comes to which weapons to use when dropping into Al Mazrah and getting your Loadout. SMGs have always been known for dominating close-rage engagements, and in Warzone 2, this philosophy is no different.

That said, there is quite a lot of choice when it comes to the SMG weapon category, so to make your decision easier we’ve decided to rank them all and finish with what we believe is the best SMG in Warzone 2.

5. BAS-P

Best Warzone 2 BAS-P loadout

In fifth place, it’s the brand-new Warzone 2 Season 1 SMG, the BAS-P. This SMG has come into the game hot, featuring a very fast fire rate with great mobility, range, and even easy-to-control recoil.

4. PDSW 528

The PDSW 528 is a great SMG in Warzone 2 mainly due to its inherently large magazine size, which holds 50 bullets in one magazine. This frees up an attachment slot to be used elsewhere other than on the magazine, which is great.

3. Vaznev-9k

Vaznev 9k in modern warfare 2

As part of the Kastovia Weapon Platform, the Vaznev-9k is a great close and medium-ranged SMG which acts similarly to the Kastov-74u. This weapon has the best-in-class damage, as well as decent range.

2. Lachmann Sub

The Lachmann Sub comes in at second place thanks to its similar performance to the extremely popular MP5 SMG from the previous Warzone and Call of Duty games. This weapon excels at close range with great mobility and can even be used at mid-range thanks to its stability.

1. Fennec 45 – Best SMG in Warzone 2

The best SMG in Warzone 2 is the Fennec 45. The main reason the Fennec takes the top spot is due to its dominance at close-range, which is exactly what you want from an SMG. The Fennec has the fastest fire rate out of all of the SMG, equating to a ridiculously fast TTK.

Paired with a more long-ranged weapon, the Fennec can certainly sort out any business you may have with enemies in close combat.
