The MP5 is one of the better SMGs in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, although it is still underrated. Thanks to the AK74u and LC10, the MP5 has been left behind in most players’ loadout slots. While the MP5 doesn’t possess the power of these other two SMGs, it still packs a punch in Season 3.

The major drawback to the MP5 in Black Ops Cold War is its damage output. It’s overmatched by other weapons in most situations, leading players to opt for other reliable weapons. However, with the right attachment selections, the former top dog can challenge some of the best weapons in multiplayer.

Best MP5 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

In Warzone, the Black Ops Cold War MP5 reigns supreme over every other submachine gun. The LC10, Mac-10 and Bullfrog may be challengers to the MP5 but those guns don’t hold a candle to the MP5 in any shape or form.

For Black Ops Cold War multiplayer, the story is a little different. At the beginning of the game, there wasn’t a single lobby that didn’t have at least a few MP5s running around. Now, it’s rare to even see one. Though that might not change with this loadout, players who are looking to change things up will enjoy using this MP5.

  • Barrel: 9.5″ Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: 40 Rnd Speed Mag
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock

Built for speed, this MP5 loadout is lacking in overall damage but moves extremely quickly. The 9.5″ Reinforced Heavy barrel gives an extra 18% damage range along with some extra bullet velocity but doesn’t tip the scales. However, with attachments like the 40 Rnd Speed Mag, Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock, players will be able to navigate the map with ease.

In comparison to the top SMGs in Black Ops Cold War, the MP5 may not be first pick but it still features an enjoyable loadout that offers some satisfactory changes in Season 3.
