Warzone 2 has been criticized in the past for its lack of movement compared to the original, but CoD expert Joseph JoeWo’ Wohala has the best SMG build to help you outmaneuver enemy teams.

There are many different factors that determine success in Warzone 2. Some of these are more obvious like ensuring you have the best weapon for the job with the ideal attachments, while others are more subtle, such as movement.

Warzone 2 doesn’t feature the same fast movement that players loved in the original, but being able to outmaneuver an enemy mid-gunfight can still be the difference between victory and a trip to the Gualg.

Luckily, CoD guru JoeWo has revealed a Lachmann Sub build that he claims is the very best SMG for movement in Warzone 2.

In his March 9 video, the YouTuber explained that the MP5 is currently the top SMG in Warzone 2 overall, but also “takes the cake” when it comes to movement. This is thanks to one specific quality it has – strafe speed.

He mentioned that Warzone 2 is currently full of “stationary” gunfights, so the ability to quickly strafe from left to right makes you much harder to hit as enemies are forced to adjust their aim mid-fight.

With his new Lachmann Sub build, JoeWo claimed that the SMG has a strafe speed that is “much faster than we’ve ever had” since Warzone 2 launched, injecting some extra movement and strategy into each close-range fight.

Check out JoeWo’s best Lachmann Sub loadout for Warzone 2 below.

JoeWo’s best movement Lachmann Sub loadout in Warzone 2

  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226mm
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7mW
  • Stock: LM Stockless Mod
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag

JoeWo began his MP5 build with the L38 Falcon 226mm, buffing the SMG’s overall movement and ADS speed. This barrel comes at the cost of some recoil control, he countered it with the Lockshot KT85 muzzle.

Next up, he added the VLK LAZR 7mW laser for another to ADS and sprint to fire, allowing players to land their shots early and gain the upper hand. JoeWo paired it with the LM Stockless Mod, offering even more movement bonuses and extra hipfire control.

Finally, he picked 40 Round Mags to ensure players can deal with multiple enemies, but without suffering the movement penalties of the 50 Round Mag.

The Lachmann Sub is already the most popular SMG in Warzone 2, but this setup takes it to a whole new level. Its lighting-fast TTK paired with “incredible” movement will make close-range fights a breeze.
