FaZe Swagg with UMP-45

The UMP-45 from Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most iconic weapons in CoD history, and pro player Kris “FaZe Swagg” Lamberson has recreated it in Warzone with this Striker 45 loadout.

The Call of Duty series has produced some extremely memorable weapons over the years, and 2009’s Modern Warfare 2 is home to many of them. Sadly, many classic guns are still missing from Warzone.

There are dozens of different weapons to choose from in Warzone Season 2, but only recent games like BOCW and Vanguard are represented at the moment.

If you’re feeling all nostalgic, and you want to use a Warzone loadout that feels like it’s straight out of 2009, FaZe Swagg has found a way to make the Striker 45 into MW2’s legendary UMP-45.

The UMP-45 dominated Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer for years, and Swagg’s loadout looks to bring some of that power to Caldera. His setup focuses on recreating the obscene damage and range the gun was known for.

It’s worth noting that the Striker 45 isn’t one of Warzone’s more popular guns, so you may have to put some work in to unlock all of the necessary attachments.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: 400mm Stainless Steel
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Magazine: 45 Round Magazines

The UMP-45 wouldn’t be complete without a silencer, and the Monolithic Suppressor does the job thanks to its added range. Swagg also opts for a 400mm Stainless Steel Barrel, which further boosts the range and bullet velocity, helping to transform it into the beast you remember.

Next up is the Commando Foregrip, to help keep much of that pesky recoil in check and make you’re Striker/Ump-45 into an absolute laser. Finally, he goes for 45 Round Magazines, to make sure you have the ammo you need to deal with frantic gunfights.

While we’ll likely have to wait until the new Modern Warfare 2 to see the UMP-45 in Warzone officially, this throwback of setup still brings back plenty of memories while packing a mean punch.

Swagg himself said this loadout has “surprisingly great range for an SMG,” and he was “smacking with it” during matches. So, the next time you’re in the mood for a dose of nostalgia, consider running this loadout in Warzone Season 2.
