MP7 is Modern Warfare’s most versatile S.M.G. with an excellent fire rate and damage in close-range gunfights. Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating the best MP7 loadout in Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded.
Assault Rifles are strong and more or less dominant in a gunfight. However, S.M.G.s are more robust in many aspects. Assault Rifles can not always dominate close-range and mid-range gunfights. S.M.G.s, on the other hand, can be trusted at close to medium-range encounters. MP7 is a versatile S.M.G. with a high fire rate and an excellent damage range.
The MP7 is similar to an Uzi and MAC 10 in structure. However, it has a faster fire rate than both of them. It has the highest mobility out of all weapons from Modern Warfare’s weapon pool. Moving through buildings and windows to juke opponents becomes a breeze with MP7. The S.M.G. has been a meta weapon since the launch of Modern Warfare and has made multiple appearances in multiple Call of Duty titles.
The MP7 has remained untouched since the launch of Modern Warfare. The weapon is relatively balanced, but it is undoubtedly better than most weapons in movement stats. But now, after the arrival of MP40, Owen Gun, and Milano 821 in Warzone, MP7 lost its popularity. It’s still viable in close-range gunfights, but there are better S.M.G.s to take its spot.
How to unlock the MP7 in CoD Warzone
The MP7 is a part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s weapon pool. It is a Sub-Machine gun (S.M.G.), an unlockable weapon available after reaching level 54. It is part of the post-launch weapon line available to all players from day one. The weapon is unlocked just before reaching the max level, so unlocking it will take time and patience.
The best tip for leveling up in Call of Duty: Warzone is to spend more time in-game. The experience (XP) system in Warzone is pretty straightforward. The more time you spend in-game, the more XP you will gain. Additionally, completing daily and weekly challenges will provide extra XP, which will be helpful to level it up faster. After unlocking and leveling it up quickly, players can choose from various attachments.
Best MP7 Loadout
Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
Barrel: FSS Recon
Laser: Tac Laser
Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip
Magazine: 60 Round Mags
Anyone familiar with the weapon pool in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare should know how powerful the monolithic suppressor is, regardless of the weapon. The extra power makes any weapon more viable in mid to long-range gunfights. The main disadvantage of choosing a monolithic integral suppressor is a slower walking speed when aiming and a slower A.D.S. (aim down sight) speed.
FSS Recon is the barrel to go for with the MP7. The barrel increases the damage output and range of the weapon. Tac Laser is necessary as it offers increased aim down sight time and better recoil control. Combined with these two attachments, Ranger Foregrip provides further recoil control, with a slightly reduced aim down sight speed. The weapon requires no optics as it has a decent iron sight.
Finally, the 60 Round Mags provide gamers with enough rounds to eliminate even the most heavily armored opponents. Having the additional bullets will also spare them from having to reload every second, so equip this attachment to avoid any disappointing fatalities.
Best Equipment & Perks for MP7 Loadout
- Secondary: Cooper Carbine (Vanguard) or Kar98k (Modern Warfare)
- Tactical: Stim (Modern Warfare), or Heartbeat Sensor (Modern Warfare)
- Lethal: Throwing knives (Modern Warfare), or Proximity Mine (Modern Warfare)
- Perk – 1: Quick Fix, or E.O.D
- Perk – 2: Overkill
- Perk – 3: Amped, or Combat Scout
Quick Fix is the ideal perk for players constantly engaging in gunfights, enabling health regeneration when an enemy is killed. Opting for E.O.D. is also feasible to take less damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire.
Overkill as the second perk is a must; players can carry an extra primary weapon in the secondary slot. Pairing Cooper Carbine or Kar98k with this S.M.G. will make the loadout more potent, and the secondary will help in handling both long to mid-distance gunfights with ease. Our Cooper Carbine loadout focuses on a long-range Assault Rifle build.
To swap between the weapons faster, Amped is the go-to. Faster switching between weapons will help in getting an edge over other players. Combat scout briefly highlights the whole team when an enemy player is shot.
As for tactical, stim gives an instant health regeneration upon use. The Heartbeat sensor can help track other players roaming nearby and plan the next gunfight strategy. Throwing knives as lethal can be a backup in a close gunfight; it has a one-shot potential on players with a minimal level of armor. Moreover, after downing a player, immediately throwing a knife will eliminate the player regardless of the range it’s thrown from. Proximity mine can be opted out for throwing knives to watch flank when stationary.
All the latest MP7 Buffs & Nerfs
The MP7 did not receive any buffs or nerfs. The current state of the weapon is balanced, according to many players within the CoD community. If the situation arises, the gun might get more tweaks in future updates to compete with the S.M.G.s in the meta. All the S.M.G.s from Call of Duty: Warzone are different. They all excel in their fields depending on the build. The pick rate of MP7 is in a stable position; players using it since the beginning of Warzone choose the S.M.G. in Caldera and Rebirth Island due to its excellent stats for close-range gunfights.
Other Alternatives to the MP7 in the Current Meta
In the current meta, other alternatives to MP7 are MP40 (Vanguard) and PPSh-41 (Vanguard). MP40 is an SMG. It is a hip-fire monster and, in the same way, also performs as a mid-range support weapon. PPSh-41 is also a solid choice with a high fire rate, and it has a very low time to kill in close-range gunfights. Check out our MP40 and PPSh-41 loadout guide to create the perfect loadout for Warzone Season 5 Last Stand.
