Below is our recommended MP5 loadout for Warzone. Other weapon loadout guides can be found here.
The MP5 is an all-time fan favorite SMG, not just in the regular multiplayer part of Modern Warfare, but also in Warzone. The MP5 has been used by many casual and pro players alike for CQC engagements, that is, until now.
We tried to build an MP5 that is viable not just at close range but also medium to slightly longer distances. This can be extremely useful, especially if you are running a sniper rifle. You can't always rely on your sniper for some medium-range shots as, by the time you ADS, there is a high chance for the other player to take you out.
This is where our MP5 build comes in. This MP5 not only shreds up close, but also at medium range. We even managed to take out enemy players at approximately 100m-120m. This build has a decent recoil, quick ADS speed, excellent hip-fire accuracy, and reliable medium-range damage. You can always run this MP5 alongside your favorite assault rifle or sniper rifle.
Make sure your MP5 is ranked up to at least level 36. We have a full guide on how to upgrade your weapon, battle pass tier, and player fast. You can also check out our guide on all the attachments for every weapon along with their unlock level requirements.
There is no need for a Muzzle, as the Monothilic Integral Suppressor gives you a 'two-in-one' bonus. The Monolithic Integral Suppressor not only suppresses your shots but also gives you a huge damage range buff because of that increased bullet velocity.
You get not only the suppression and damage range, but also an extra attachment slot.
The Monolithic Integral Suppressor for the MP5 unlocks at level 36.
For your Underbarrel attachment, you must select the Merc Foregrip. This is one of the best attachments when it comes to CQCs. It gives you increased hip-fire accuracy, which helps you easily take out enemy players without aiming down sight.
It also gives you better vertical recoil control that will help you take out enemy players at range.
The Merc Foregrip Underbarrel attachment unlocks at level 19.
As always, you must choose more ammo for Warzone, than what the default weapon offers. For ARs, we typically go for a standard 60 round mag. For this MP5, the max ammo attachment available is the 45 Round Mags.
This is important since, in Warzone, your health is 250 (with full armor), and on top of that, you will come across squads of two, three, and even four. You need all the firepower that you can get.
45 Round Mags for the MP5 unlocks at level 13.
This is also one of the most important attachments for SMGs, and CQC weapon builds. You must choose the 5mW Laser attachment to get even more hip-fire accuracy and that sprint-to-fire speed. Getting those extra shots before your opponent does makes a huge difference in Warzone.
The 5mW Laser attachment unlocks at level 25.
The last attachment that we have for this build is an Optic attachment. That's right! It is not usual to put on an Optic on an SMG, but this is what helps you engage your targets at medium range.
You must choose the G.I. Mini Reflex as your Optic attachment. You can go with whatever Optic attachment you prefer, but it is better to go with something small and clean to have better visibility and speed. You can try other alternatives: the Solozero Optic Mini Reflex, Cronen LP945 Mini Reflex, and Monocle Reflex Sight.
The G.I. Mini Reflex Optic attachment unlocks at level 26.
