The Best MP5 Competitive Classes in Modern Warfare

The Best MP5 Competitive Classes in Modern Warfare

Written by

While Modern Warfare has a plethora of solid weapons, there have been two that dominate public and competitive lobbies. One is the M4A1 assault rifle, which we already went over. The other is the MP5 submachine gun, which is what we’re going to be talking about today.

The MP5 is reliable, accurate, and deals a tremendous amount of damage both up close, and at range. So, it’s no wonder that the weapon has attracted so many suitors. However, with Modern Warfare’s vast gunsmith system, creating a viable class for it in competitive can be tricky.

The Best Attachments For MP5 - Run’n’Gun

As the MP5 is a submachine gun, its natural habitat is up close and personal. The Modern Warfare MP5 has a fairly high fire rate but it doesn’t sacrifice much accuracy along with that. So, while it can be used at mid-to-long range quite effectively, its best usage comes from short to medium range. Here are the best attachments to use in order to maximize your success at these ranges.

  • Barrel: Subsonic Integral Suppressor, FFS Light
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 10mm Automatic 30-Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

Most of the above attachments make use of improved aim-down-sight speed, which helps tremendously when you’re sprinting around the map. Also, the Suppressor benefits you when going on a flank, since your gunfire can’t be heard by other enemies.

The most important attachment with this loadout, though, is the Stippled Grip Tape. This should be on your class if you’re planning to get up in the enemy’s face, in both respawn and Search and Destroy.

The Best Attachments For MP5 - Range

Of course, not all players who use a submachine gun will want to get up in the enemy’s face. Sometimes, in a mode like Search and Destroy, the best course of action is to stay back and keep an opponent off a bomb site.

Also, Modern Warfare’s maps are fairly large so attachments that emphasize range are helpful for most situations. Here are the best attachments for the MP5 if you’re planning to be less aggressive.

  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Stock: FORGE TAC Ultralight, Class Straight-Line Stock
  • Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 10mm Auto 30-Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

For this loadout, we chose attachments that help with range without fully sacrificing your ability to run and gun. For example, in the Stock category, going with the FORGE TAC Ultralight doesn’t give you the best range boosts, but it also doesn’t weigh you down up close either. However, if you want to go that route, we suggest using the Classic Straight-Line Stock.

The above attachments are more useful in Search and Destroy, as SMG players usually don’t play too far back in respawn modes. Equipping this loadout on a map like Arklov Peak or Piccadilly will help your assault rifle players cover more ground, with you being able to beam enemies at long ranges.

Other Aspects of Your Modern Warfare MP5 Class

While the attachments will most likely make or break your MP5 loadout, there are other aspects to consider. Things like the perks, secondary weapon, and Field Upgrade all help determine what playstyle you’ll implement in a match. So, here’s what we recommend.

Perks

  • Double Time, E.O.D.
  • Pointman
  • Battle-Hardened

Secondary Weapon

  • X16, .50 GS

Equipment

  • Semtex, Frag Grenade
  • Flash, Stun Grenade

Field Upgrade

  • Dead Silence, Trophy System

Most of the above class elements come down to personal preference. However, some things, like using Double Time on your run’n’gun class is, somewhat, essential. Generally speaking, simply choose whatever you feel more comfortable with or whatever helps out your team more.
