Which SMG is the best for Warzone? We've got you covered.

19:00, 29 Mar 2020

The SMG category in Call of Duty: Warzone contains some extremely powerful weapons. Of course, they don’t pack the stopping power that Assault Rifles do, but they make it up for it by shredding enemies up close. If you’re accurate, you can eliminate an opponent in one single SMG magazine. Though, you’ll still need the right attachments and weapons to give you that extra pop. So, here are our choices for the three best SMGs in Warzone and the best attachments to use on them. 

Check out our Best Warzone Weapon Loadout Guide video below, and keep reading for SMG tips.

#3 - MP5

Perhaps the best gun in Modern Warfare multiplayer, the MP5’s power transfers over to Warzone. While it’s not the dominant force of an SMG it is in Modern Warfare, you certainly won’t be at a disadvantage if you pick one up in Warzone. It’s well worth one or two of your custom loadout slots, as it’s effective at both short and medium range. The MP5 can also do some damage at long range, but not enough to eliminate an enemy. 

You can use a wide array of attachments on the MP5 but there are a few that stand out from the rest of SMGs in Warzone. Here are our picks for the best MP5 attachments. 

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Stock: FFS Close Quarters 
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip 
  • Ammunition: 10mm Auto 30-Round Magazines
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

There are a few essentials within this setup, mainly being the 10mm Auto 30-Round Mags and Monolithic Suppressor. The 10mm Mags increase your damage, which can only help in any situation. As for the Monolithic Suppressor, this helps with staying off the radar so you don’t get flanked by an enemy team. 

#2 - AUG 

Though the AUG doesn’t have a huge presence in the current Modern Warfare meta, it absolutely shreds in Warzone. There are a couple of reasons for this but the biggest is the magazine options you’re presented with. The choices offer both damage and magazine size increases, both of which are incredibly useful in battle royales. While you can ultimately choose what best suits you, we have a loadout that utilizes the AUG’s strengths as an SMG and minimizes its weaknesses. 

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Stock: FTAC Ultralight Hollow
  • Underbarrel: Operator Foregrip 
  • Ammunition: 5.56 NATO 60 Round Drum Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

With this loadout, you have the damage increase of the 5.56 rounds but also the Stippled Grip Tape to bring your gun up faster. This is truly the best of both worlds, as you can deal a lethal amount of damage without sacrificing your accuracy. 

#1 - MP7 - The Best SMG in Warzone

Currently, the MP7 reigns supreme in the SMG category of Warzone. The gun is accurate, powerful and has a high rate of fire. These traits are accompanied by a huge selection of useful attachments that come in handy for many situations you’ll face in Warzone. Here are some Call of Duty tips on what we recommend using on your MP7 loadout. 

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor 
  • Barrel: FFS Recon
  • Stock: No Stock, Forge TAC Ultralight 
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags 
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape 
Warzone MP7

Once again, we’re utilizing the versatility of the Monolithic Suppressor. The attachment doesn’t truly have a downside if you pair it with the FFS Recon barrel and No Stock. However, your long-range accuracy will be affected by the lack of stock. You can compensate for this by throwing on one of the TAC stocks, but we feel the MP7 is at its best when you’re running and gunning in close quarter areas. Also, we included a sixth option with the Merc Foregrip underbarrel. If your accuracy isn’t the greatest with the MP7, this attachment should help you a ton.
