Modern Warfare 2 offers a range of potent SMGs tailored for dominating close-range encounters, with one standout choice being the iconic MP5, also known as the Lachmann Sub SMG, which has garnered immense popularity among players.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann Sub MP5 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: XTEN Razor Comp
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision-40
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10

We kick off the best Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann Sub loadout with the XTEN Razor Comp Muzzle, which will improve both the vertical and horizontal recoil control of the SMG. Next, the VLK LZR 7MW Laser improves ADS and sprint-to-fire speeds.

The Lockgrip Precision-40 Underbarrel and Lachmann TCG-10 Rear Grip is a great combo that can be used to buff the weapon’s accuracy so that you can take out foes with precision. Finally, we went with No Stock to buff the movement speed.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann Sub Perks & Equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Battle Hardened
  • Base Perk 2: Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal Equipment: Drill Charge
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

When it comes to Perks, we recommend choosing Battle Hardened and Bomb Squad. The former allows you to tank a hefty amount of thrown devices, and Bomb Squad will give a small but necessary resistance to Flash Bangs and Stuns.

Fast Hands increases the Lachmann Sub MP5’s reload speed, and Ghost keeps you off the enemy’s radar. Finally, we’ll wrap this loadout up with the Drill Charge, Flash Grenade, and Dead Silence. Drill Charges can explode players on the other side of any surface, Flash Grenades blind enemies, and Dead Silence complements any SMG loadout.
