The MP5 is doing wonders in the MW2 Open Beta. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on creating the optimal loadout for the MP5 in MW2 Open Beta.
The MP5 has been one of the most used weapons in MW (2019). It was the number one SMG used in CDL pro play and regular pubs. Moreover, it has top-of-its-class mobility and damage stats for close-range gunfights.
The MP5 is a fully automatic subsonic Sub-Machine Gun. It is regarded as the king of SMGs in Call of Duty. It is beginner-friendly with extremely low recoil and an intense fire rate. Furthermore, the weapon is efficient in handling mid-range gunfights.
How to unlock the MP5 in MW2
The MP5 is available from when players reach level 4 in CoD: MW2 for the first time. But, players will have to level up their rank with the MP5 to unlock some of the better attachments for the weapon. To rank up a weapon, spend time in MW2 with it equipped.
While the MP5 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 MP5 if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before an MW2 match begins.

Best Equipment & Perks for MP5 Loadout
- Tactical: Snapshot Grenade
- Lethal: Proximity Mine
- Base Perk – 1: Double Time
- Base Perk – 2: Battle Hardened
- Bonus Perk: Quick Fix
- Ultimate Perk: Hardline
A snapshot grenade and proximity mine are the best tactical and lethal for the loadout. The snapshot grenade is handy for checking areas, as it emits a scan when it’s projected. Furthermore, the proximity mine is an excellent tool for locking chokepoints.
As for the reworked perk system, the base perks 1 and 2 are double-time and battle-hardened. The double time perk increases sprint speed, and battle-hardened increases damage resistance to explosives in-game. On the other hand, the quick fix bonus perk increases the health regeneration speed.
Other Alternatives to the MP5 in the Current Meta
Other alternatives to the MP5 are FSS Hurricane and AK-74u. However, there are other submachine guns in the game, but they are currently unavailable. So, the best alternative for this weapon can be determined when the game gets an entire release.
