Since the integration of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, players have argued over which version of the MP5 is best. The Modern Warfare MP5 came first and was one of the battle royale’s top weapons for months. However, the Cold War variant came along and overtook the top spot in the SMG category. In Season 4, the Cold War MP5 is still the best of the pair and features a loadout that can shred enemies at close range.
While the newest version of the MP5 might not be the best all-around SMG in Warzone, it’s worthy of a spot in any player’s loadout selections.
Best Cold War MP5 loadout in Warzone
Like most other SMGs in Warzone, the Cold War MP5 is best served in close-range engagements. It features a terrific time-to-kill and decent fire rate that allows it to dominate up close. The only slight downside with the MP5 is its drop off when shooting at longer ranges.
Of course, this is a crux for most submachine guns in Warzone. To alleviate this issue, players should run the MP5 with an assault rifle like the Krig 6 or AS VAL. This allows the MP5 to handle the close-range work and the primary AR to deal with any pesky long-range gunfights.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Laser: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd Drum
- Stock: Raider Stock
The loadout for the Cold War MP5 is fairly standard for an SMG in Warzone. The Agency Suppressor, Field Agent Grip and Raider Stock are all common sights on an SMG loadout. The suppressor and grip help reduce the MP5’s recoil and the stock increases the gun’s sprint-to-fire time by 30%.
The last two attachments are a bit more uncommon but still familiar. First, the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight improves hip-fire accuracy and finally, the STANAG 50 Rnd Drum makes sure players don’t run out of bullets mid-gunfight. This Cold War MP5 loadout is still among the best Warzone has to offer in Season 4.
