Are you searching for the ultimate Lachmann Sub loadout for Warzone 2? Don’t worry as we guide you through the perfect loadout with the optimal setup for dominating the terrains of Al Mazrah.

Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 has been a massive success worldwide. The direct sequel to Warzone Caldera, Warzone 2.0 features guns, equipment, and game mechanics from MW2. There are 70 weapons in MW2, which are also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 73 weapons, 13 of them are SMGs. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a perfect playing ground for ARs and Sniper Rifles. However, SMGs excel in close-range engagements. From the SMG class, Lachmann Sub has found its place as the top weapon in the meta with its buff in the Season 2 update.

The Lachmann Sub, or MP5, is a fully automatic subsonic submachine 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 Lachmann Sub in Warzone 2.0

The Lachmann Sub is available after leveling up the Lachmann 545 to level 13 in CoD: Warzone 2, 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 Sub as they would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games to unlock some of the better attachments for the gun.

To rank up Lachmann Sub, keep playing Warzone 2 when it is equipped. While the Lachmann Sub will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by slaying enemies, taking down killstreaks, and completing contracts. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the Lachmann Sub if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2 match begins.

Best Equipment & Perks for Lachmann Sub Loadout


  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Semtex

Stim is a widely used tactical capable of providing instant heals, which can be life-saving in clutch situations. On the other hand, semtex is an excellent lethal that can serve as a breaching impact and flush out other players from cover.

Perk Package – Weapon Specialist

  • Base Perk -1: Overkill
  • Base Perk -2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor

The weapon specialist package is ideal for players who are calm and calculated. The base perks are Overkill and Strong Arm. Strong Arm grants players a stronger projectile-throwing power with a preview of the trajectory, while Overkill allows them to carry two primary weapons.

Furthermore, players can use Spotter for the bonus perk, which spots enemy equipment, field upgrades, and killstreaks through walls. Lastly, the ultimate perk is Survivor, which acts as a self-revive but in the form of a perk.
