Best Modern Warfare 2 SMGs: What Is The Best MW2 SMG?

Here’s the guide for you, Call of Duty demons. The best Modern Warfare 2 SMGs list. Your run and gun class. Your nuke-dropping weapon choice. Your only option when it comes to taking over objectives on the map and getting behind enemy lines. The submachine gun class is arguably the most important one to master, given that nothing compares to it up-close and personal. So, with a range of new options, here are the best Modern Warfare 2 SMGs (keep scrolling for a bonus).

Best Modern Warfare 2 SMGs

3 - Fennec 45

Having been introduced to fans in 2020, the Fennec 45 is quite similar to how we last saw it. Pacey, is accurate, doesn’t really have much ADS speed, and lacks hip-fire accuracy. It’s probably best described as the worst of a decent bunch and serves as something that you wouldn’t mind picking up as floor loot but you’ll instantly be looking for an upgrade. It's usable. 

2 - Lachmann Sub

For the first time in years, the MP5, nor Lachmann Sub in Modern Warfare 2, isn't the best close-range weapon. The Lachmann Sub isn’t the worst gun in the game, but it’s not quite the weapon we’ve become accustomed to either. Its range fall of has significantly decreased and in its early stages, it struggles with recoil. While it doesn’t quite meet the criteria to become the best Modern Warfare 2 SMG, it will still shred when used in close-knit places, especially in buildings when combined with some sleek movement.

 

1 - FSS Hurricane

From the early showings, there is a new best Modern Warfare 2 SMG in town. The FSS Hurricane is a fast-firing submachine gun that does more than it should be able to. Originally, the FSS Hurricane is supposed to struggle with long-distance, but it really doesn’t, especially with the right stock and grip. A king of close-quarters and a weapon to avoid challenging against at mid-range too, the FSS Hurricane takes poll position in the beta for becoming the best SMG in MW2.

If the FSS Hurricane sounds like it's up your street, check out our best FFS Hurricane loadout guide.

Bonus - Kastov-74u

Arguably the best Modern Warfare 2 SMG isn’t actually a submachine gun at all. Instead, the Kastov 74u (a remake of the iconic AK74u) is an assault rifle, but it is still one of the most destructive close-range guns in the game. Even in its base status (no attachments) players have already begun to figure out that the 74u meta is back again. Coming in with its typically high mobility, manageable recoil, and slow-yet-powerful bullets, the 74u might actually be misplaced as an AR and better served as the best SMG in Modern Warfare 2.

It's set to be quite a good year for Modern Warfare 2 SMGs, so you might want to take full advantage of them through the beta.
