How to unlock the Lachmann 556 in MW2
The Lachmann 556 is available from when players reach weapon level 13 of Lachmann 762 in CoD: MW2 for the first time, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon will also be unlocked. Players will have to level up their rank with the Lachmann 556 as players would with any other gun in Call of Duty games, new or old, to unlock some of the better attachments for the weapon.
To rank up a weapon, spend time in MW2 with it equipped. While the Lachmann 556 will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by using it to slay enemies, take down killstreaks, and complete objectives. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the Lachmann 556 if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before an MW2 match begins.
