Best MP5 Class in Black Ops Cold War & Warzone

Using the best MP5 loadout and attachments can help you dominate public lobbies.  

With every year comes a new Call of Duty, and with every Call of Duty comes a meta...

This year is no different, and at the top of that meta is the MP5. Here are the best two loadouts to make sure you stay on top of the competition. 

This weapon excels at close range; manageable recoil and fire rate will give the assault rifle class a run for their money.

Best MP5 Loadouts And Attachments

In the short couple of weeks since the launch of Black Ops Cold War, developers have nerfed, buffed, and then nerfed this small but mighty full-auto gun yet again.

It's quick on its feet, has great iron sights, and is great for getting up-close and personal.

Best MP5 Class Cold War

The way Treyarch has decided to balance out the weapons in Black Ops Cold War is via bullet velocity. Previous entries in the Franchise have seen balancing come from range or recoil, or a combination of both.

However, this time is the first year that this small part of the stat sheet plays such a big role.

In short, lose too much bullet velocity, and the gun will feel like it has bad "hitscan" or like the bullets are not registering. No, it's not your internet connection, it's the bullet velocity coming to a screeching halt.  

Enter the 9.5" Task Force Barrel with 75% boost to bullet velocity is just what the doctor ordered for this German powerhouse.

A 50% increase to its damage range combined with a small damage boost never hurt anybody... well, except for your enemies. It does come at a cost, one less mag from your total starting ammo, coupled with a loss of horizontal and vertical recoil.

However, pairing this with the Agency Suppressor makes it all worth it, as we immediately lose 25% or half of the muzzle velocity we just gained from the 9.5" task force barrel. 

The Agency suppressor does offer a modest boost to our recoil control.  

Meanwhile, suppressing the weapon, making it whisper quiet. Now we are free to operate under the shroud of silence.  

Since when we fire, we won't pop up on the mini-map.

The field agent grip will help us stay on target when we start to stretch those ranges out. It offers a massive improvement to our horizontal recoil control and vertical as well.

Submachine Gun Supremacy in Cold War

MP5 Best Class Warzone & Rebirth Island

Something to keep in mind is that the handling stat for all the submachine guns in Black Ops Cold War are light years ahead of all the other primary weapons, meaning we can afford to lose a bit of that speed.

The Stanag 50 RND Drum is the biggest offering in the magazine slot, allowing us to sort multiple hostiles without the need for a reload.

For those CQB high-pressure moments, the Swat 5mw Laser Sight lets you breathe easy with its superior hip-fire accuracy, and let's not forget that we have 50 rounds to chomp through.

Both the Stanag 50 RND Drum and the Swat 5mw Laser Sight will slow our aim down sight time.

Equipping the Serpent Wrap will straighten out that handling stat without sacrificing too much of our sprint out time; therefore, we can still aim down sight faster than the base MP5,

For our last and final attachment, the Duster Stock with a boost to the slide speed will let you get out of the near-death situations before you reengage.

But what happens when you want to get nice and personal?

Look no further than this next loadout. 

Best MP5 Class Warzone & Rebirth Island

The MP5 has one of the best recoil patterns ever. This might persuade you to kit it out for mid-range instead of making it a speed demon and dominating any gunfight at close range... We chose the latter.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor 
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser 
  • Magazine: Salvo 40 RND Fast Mag
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Grip
  • Stock: No Stock

Agency Suppressor 

At the heart of this class is the Agency Suppressor. Increasing our damage range and concealing our radar signature from the minimap.

Using a suppressor is the most effective way to engage with this weapon in Warzone since we will be playing it close range with this one.

Is important that we can "shoot and scoot" and keep our position elusive.

Salvo 40 RND Fast Mag

Next on the list is the Salvo 40 RND Fast Mag, increasing our magazine capacity by 10 bullets.

However, this attachment's bread and butter is the whopping 40% boost to our reload speed. 

In close quarters being able to reload in the blink of an eye is a massive advantage.

The Salvo 40 RND Fast Mag will hurt our aim down sight time by 25%.

Airborne Elastic Grip

To speed this class up, we will be using the Airborne Elastic Wrap. 

With its 30% boost to our aim down sight, time and a 90% flinch resistance. 

Unliking in Black Ops Cold War there is actual flinch in Warzone reducing this to almost nothing is a must, if we want to stay on target during the gunfight.

The 30% boost to our aim down sight time will bring the gun back to its submachine gun handling standard. Negating the effects of the Salvo 40 RND Fast Mags.

The Airborne Elastic Wrap will decreases or shooting move speed and hurt our sprint to fire speed by 15%.

No Stock 

Next, we will be going for the No Stock attachments mitigating the sprint to fire increase that comes with the Airborne Elastic Wrap. 

However, unlike the Raider Stock that offers the same boost to sprint to fire plus a massive aim walking speed movement speed.

The No Stock attachments won't hurt our hip-fire accuracy as the raider stock will.

The No Stock's 15% is a far cry when compared to the Radier Stock's massive 30%.

SWAT 5mw Laser Sight 

We will be using the SWAT 5mw Laser Sight for its 36% boost to hip-fire accuracy for our last attachment.

Not only will this nullify the hit we took to hip-fire accuracy with the No Stock attachment, but it will also net us 16% tighter hip-fire spread.

In turn, the SWAT 5mw Laser Sight will hurt our aim down sight time by 8%.

Wrap up:

This class setup is pure to the submachine gun physiology of speed over everything. 

With an amazing reload speed and great hip-fire accuracy, this MP5 loadout is only 3% slower in the aim down sight department than the base.

However, its lightspeed ahead of anything you might encounter in Warzone. 

Ticking all the boxes with the Agency Suppressor, this class is ready for room clearance and CQB combat. Boasting superior weapon handling than any other submachine gun available. 

This loadout is the aggressive player's daydream. 


There you have it; two amazing MP5 loadouts. This meta weapon is that of a nightmare in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War's multiplayer.

The last thing you want is to be stuck in a room with one of these. 

If you're still working your way through the levels, here's how to rank up fast in Black Ops Cold War.
