If the M4A1 and MP5 aren’t yielding too much success for you, then maybe you should try another weapon, like the MP7.

Without a doubt, there are two weapons that most players prefer to use in competitive Call of Duty play, being the M4A1 assault rifle and MP5 submachine gun. The two guns are both jack-of-all-trades and great choices for any situation. However, choosing a weapon ultimately comes down to personal preference. If you feel that the above two weapons aren’t yielding too much success for you, then maybe you should try another weapon, like the MP7. 

The best balanced attachments for the MP7

In our other weapon guides, we’ve gone over two loadouts for rushing and accuracy. Though, with the MP7, there’s less variety with the attachments since the SMG is fairly balanced overall. So, instead, we’ll be going over one loadout that will perform well in any scenario. 

●    Muzzle: Compensator
●    Barrel: FSS Recon 
●    Optic: G.I. Mini Reflex
●    Stock: FORGE TAC Ultralight 
●    Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip 
●    Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape 
●    Perk: Sleight of Hand 

As you can see, we’ve given you more options than the allotted you’re allowed on your MP7. However, this mainly comes down to your overall skill level. If you’re someone who may not have the best accuracy at long-range, then going with the Compensator helps steady your shots. If you feel you have the accuracy to excel at long ranges, then using Sleight of Hand is going to benefit you in those close engagements. 

We’ve also suggested an optical sight, since not everyone loves the basic ironsights of the MP7. All in all, however, experimenting with the above attachments might be the best course of action. The MP7 is pretty balanced, so equipping balanced attachments should complement the weapon greatly. 

Other aspects of your MP7 class

When using a submachine gun of this nature, your playstyle is almost set in stone from the get-go. The MP7 doesn’t possess a deadly high rate of fire or enough damage to eliminate enemies quickly at long range. So, for competitive modes, you’ll want to play somewhat in the middle, not rushing but also not staying back. 

To go along with the above attachments, we’ve included the rest of our recommended class setup below. 


  • Double Time
  • Pointman 
  • Battle-Hardened

Secondary Weapon 

  • X16


  • Semtex Grenade
  • Stun Grenade

Field Upgrade

  • Dead Silence 

While these are what we recommend, if some of your teammates are running Stun Grenades, it might be worthwhile to switch to a Flash Grenade. Competitive in Modern Warfare is all about team play and working off your teammate’s strengths. So, utilizing every advantage you can is only going to benefit you and your team in the long run.
