Viral Warzone TikTok reveals Cold War loadout to rival MP40
Warzone may have a new SMG loadout to top the current MP40 meta, as a new viral TikTok shares a powerful Cold War loadout.
With Warzone about to get its Season 2 update, introducing new weapons and content to the game like the Whitley LMG and Rebirth Iron Trials, players are still looking to find unsuspecting meta weapons.
The latest meta loadout comes from a viral TikTok that claims this Cold War MP5 class can rival the MP40.
Thanks to TikTok user yyaakkeettv, players may actually have an alternative to the Vanguard MP40 in Warzone Pacific.
The MP40 has been absolutely shredding for the duration of Warzone Pacific Season 1, but as the new update comes in, the patch could see some big changes that will knock it off its pedestal in Caldera.
For those looking to utilize another great SMG that possesses similar power to the MP40, look no further than this CW MP5 class.
Viral TikTok Cold War MP5 loadout
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: Task Force Barrel
- Magazine: 50 Round Drum
- Handle: Serpent Wrap
- Stock: SAS Combat Stock
This MP5 loadout is built for speed and close-ranged combat, as the Task Force Barrel increases strafe speed and also damage while increasing the recoil. The increase in recoil isn’t a big deal, as you’ll mostly be using this weapon up-close, and the Agency Suppressor balances the loss of recoil control.

Further, the 50 Round Drum is essential for keeping up the pace, as it means you can continue mowing enemies down without wasting time reloading. The Serpent Wrap means you’ll be able to ADS faster, meaning you can get the first shot off with accuracy.
Lastly, we have the SAS Combat Stock which is great for overall mobility while aiming down sights and shooting while moving.
The user claims that this MP5 loadout says “bye bye” to the MP40 meta, as the video demonstrates how quickly this loadout can put enemies down in close quarters.
The TTK on the Cold War MP5 has always been great, and as you can tell by the video, it may be a great option for Rebirth Island due to the close-quarters combat. It may also be the best SMG choice for the upcoming Rebirth Iron Trials mode which sees players only using Cold War weapons.
Having said that the MP40 has got some range to it, which the MP5 definitely lacks. Perhaps the new Armaguerra SMG coming during Season 2 will knock both of these weapons out of the water similar to when the Welgun was introduced.
We’ll have to wait and see, but for now, check out the Warzone Season 2 trailer that reveals major gameplay additions.
