Black Ops Cold War’s MP5 is a great close-range choice in Warzone Season 2, so here are the best attachments and perks to run with it.
The MP5 has been a fan-favorite weapon in almost every Call of Duty title. It hasn’t lost any of its power in Cold War and Warzone, being an underrated gem for close-range combat.
It’s one of the first weapons you’ll unlock, making it an excellent choice for beginners and veterans alike. Here are the best attachments and perks to dominate with BOCW’s MP5 in Warzone Season 2.
Best Cold War MP5 Warzone attachments
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 10.1″ Calvary Lancer
- Laser: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
- Grip: Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition: Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag
This Cold War MP5 is built to dominate at close range. Pair it with a long-range rifle such as the AUG, or if you’re especially confident with your aim, a Sniper Rifle. Quickly switch to it if your primary weapon is out of ammo, or use it in close-quarters situations.
First, we’ve added the Agency Suppressor. This works similarly to the Monolithic Suppressor from Modern Warfare, which increases the weapons range while hiding you from the minimap. For increased versatility, we’ve also equipped the 10.1″ Calvary Lancer barrel. This increases the MP5’s damage at range without any negatives.
To make the MP5 as accurate as possible, you should add the Field Agent Grip. This helps with both horizontal and vertical recoil control, which makes it easy to land headshots up close and stay accurate even at longer ranges. And for some extra accuracy at point-blank, the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight will boost your hip-fire accuracy.
For ammunition, the Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag is ideal. You can down several enemies without ever having to reload, and you’ll also have increased reload speed.
Best perks to use with Cold War’s MP5 in Warzone Season 2
Not only are your weapons important in a Warzone loadout, but your choice of perks can also make or break a class. Here are the perks you should be running with Black Ops Cold War’s MP5 in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
A major part of Warzone is the lethal equipment at your disposal. Before pushing a room, enemies will lob a bombardment of grenades, rockets, and explosives inside. If you have any hope of surviving, you’ll need the E.O.D perk equipped.
The MP5 is best suited as a secondary weapon, so you want to run Overkill to carry two primaries. If you’re really feeling the MP5 love, you could equip both the Cold War and Modern Warfare versions. Make a duplicate loadout with Ghost instead, and you can swap the Perks out when you get another loadout and keep the weapons.
There’s nothing worse than running out of ammo in a firefight, where you’ll need to quickly swap weapons to have a chance. So for perk 3, the Amped Perk will allow you to swap weapons insanely fast, which is vital in a firefight.
How to unlock Cold War’s MP5 in Warzone
To unlock Cold War’s MP5 in Warzone, you simply need to reach Level 4. You’ll manage this after only a game or two, so you can essentially use it straight away. Then once you’ve unlocked it, use it as much as you can and take advantage of Double XP events to rank it up fast.
Best Cold War MP5 alternatives in Warzone
The MP5 is best suited for close-range combat, so if you’re looking for alternatives, the MAC-10 and Gallo SA12 are solid choices. They destroy enemies at close-range, which is exactly what you want in a secondary. Of course, there’s always Modern Warfare’s MP5 too.
Use Cold War’s MP5 with these attachments and perks, and you’ll find yourself running one of the best SMGs Warzone has to offer.
