The Lachmann MP5 is Modern Warfare 2’s most powerful SMG, and this fully automatic weapon is doing wonders in the MW2. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on creating the optimal loadout for the MP5 in MW2.
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 under the Lachmann platform. Players need to level up the Lachmann 556 to level 13 to unlock the Lachmann Sub receiver. Although the MP5 will have access to the universal attachments, players would still need to level up the weapon to unlock weapon-specific attachments.
While the MP5 will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by using it to kill 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: Flash Grenade
- Lethal: Semtex Grenade
- Base Perk – 1: Tracker
- Base Perk – 2: Battle Hardened
- Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
- Ultimate Perk: Hardline
A flash grenade and semtex grenade are the best tactical and lethal for the loadout. The flash grenade is handy for checking areas, as it emits a hit marker when it explodes, blinding the affected player. Furthermore, the semtex grenade helps clear out tight map areas and objectives.
As for the reworked perk system, the base perks 1 and 2 are tracker and battle-hardened. The tracker perk highlights the enemy’s footsteps, and battle-hardened increases damage resistance to explosives in-game. On the other hand, the fast hands’ bonus perk increases the weapon switching and reload speed for added weapon handling.
Other Alternatives to the MP5 in the Current Meta
Other alternatives to the MP5 are Lachmann 556 (AR), Kastov 762 (AR), and M4 (AR). Lachmann 556 is one of the most powerful guns in Modern Warfare 2’s current meta. As time progresses, more weapons will gain a stronger position in the meta.
