The best Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Lachmann Sub loadout

In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, having an SMG for close- to mid-range is essential, especially on 6v6 maps. While there are plenty of weapons that work well in this category, few even come close to the Lachmann Sub (or MP5, as it’s known colloquially). This SMG is a Call of Duty staple at this point, so it’s easy to see why so many have gravitated toward it.

Of course, since weapons and their attachments function differently in this game, building the Lachmann properly is a tricky process. Which attachments are the best and what are this weapon’s strong points?

This is the best Lachmann Sub loadout in Modern Warfare II.

Lachmann Sub overview

With a fast fire rate of around 800 RPM, the Lachmann Sub is a forgiving SMG, allowing you to quickly adjust to pull off follow up shots if you’re off target. But its rate of fire hits a sweet spot, allowing you to secure multiple eliminations before having to reload, making it a bit more practical than something like the Fennec 45. The Lachmann is also tremendously consistent, with a competitive TTK, even out to around 40 meters. In short, the Lachmann Sub isn’t statistically the best, but given its versatility and consistency, it’s a top choice, even better if you build it for speed. Prioritizing speed, mobility, and aim down sights (ADS) will hurt recoil control, but when using the weapon up-close, you shouldn’t have much trouble hitting your shots.

The main priority when building a close-range version of the Lachmann Sub is to prioritize speed, mobility, ADS times, and sprint-to-fire without penalizing your recoil control too much.

Speaking of which, start by using the XTEN Razor Comp Muzzle for better horizontal and vertical recoil control. This will help compensate for some of the other close-range attachments later on. After that, use the VLK LZR 7MW Laser, granting faster ADS speeds, better aiming stability, and a boost to sprint-to-fire times — perfect for those close-quarters battles.

Then, equip the LM Stockless Mod Stock, which gives you faster ADS speed, better sprint-to-fire speed, overall improved movement, and a boost to hip fire recoil control. Follow that up with the Merc Foregrip Underbarrel for improved hip fire accuracy, recoil steadiness, hip fire recoil control, and aim walking steadiness. This will help the Lachmann feel a bit more accurate.

Finally, use the LM Cronus Grip Rear Grip for better flinch resistance. You’ll be able to land more shots when you’re getting hit by your opponents, which can make or break certain gunfights.

e3 2021 missing games call of duty

Call of Duty is one of the most successful video game franchises of all time. The original Call of Duty set a new standard for first-person shooters, the series' online multiplayer work has been a must-play for gamers for nearly two decades, and Warzone has been one of the top battle royale experiences of late.

The series has covered a lot of warfare, from World War II to futuristic fictional wars in 2187, but never in any set order. Players have been bounced around from era to era with each annual COD release and even revisited the same conflicts multiple times from different perspectives through direct sequels and remakes.
