Back when the MP5 first released in Warzone during the Modern Warfare era, the SMG was at the top of the charts. Since then, the Cold War MP5 released, and several balance updates occurred. With Warzone Season 2, using the best MP5 MW loadout can still be highly effective, which is why the MP5 MW is still in the A-Tier in our Warzone Season 2 SMG Tier list.
Warzone Season 2 MP5 MW: Best loadout
Despite being less popular than the MP5 from Cold War, and not as strong as the MAC-10 at close range, the MP5 MW in Warzone Season 2 still packs quite a punch.
The best loadout for the MP5 from the Modern Warfare era can come very close to the MP5 from Cold War, if you pick all the right attachments.
The best MP5 MW loadout to use at the start of Warzone Season 2 is:
- Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
- Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
- Laser: 5mW Laser
- Stock: FTAC Collapsible
- Ammunition: 45 Rounds Mags
With the low magazine count by default, the best MP5 MW loadout has to use the 45 Rounds Mags. Alternatively, you can opt for much quicker reloading with the Slight of Hand perk.
The Monolithic Integral Suppressor goes in the barrel attachment slot, offering sound suppression to keep you off the minimap while adding more bullet velocity. This is coupled with the Merc Foregrip and 5mW Laser, which gives you added hip-fire accuracy and sprint to fire speed, allowing for a great run-and-gun MP5 loadout.
Please remember this is the MP5 from Modern Warfare in Warzone Season 2. Do not try these attachments on the Cold War MP5, as they simply don't fit as well.
As always, we encourage you to explore different attachments. Everyone has a different playstyle, so swap some attachments around to find your own best AUG SMG loadout for the Modern Warfare variant.
