The MP5 is back in the Warzone 2 meta. One expert predicts it will be the best SMG in Season 2 Reloaded. We show the setup in German.

Santa Monica, California — The Warzone 2 meta has long stood still. Where weapons used to have to be leveled every other weekend in order to always be up to date, many shooting irons are currently rusting away in the same loadouts. A CoD expert predicted fresh wind in Season 2 Reloaded and predicted the best SMG. The MP5 is arguably celebrating its way back into the meta.

Warzone 2: MP5 celebrates return to Season 2 Reloaded meta – expert prophesies it as the best SMG

This is the best MP5 setup in German: If you are looking for a breath of fresh air in the loadouts for Warzone 2, you should not miss the MP5 or the Lachmann Sub. This could become a real monster in the meta in Season 2 Reloaded of Warzone 2. You need these attachments including tuning (V stands for the vertical axis and H for the horizontal axis).

  • run: L38 Falcon 226mm (V: +0.29 | H: -0.26)
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW (H: -0.23 | H: -32.90)
  • underflow: XTEN Drop Griff (V: -0.44 | H: -0.26)
  • Store: 40-round magazine
  • Griff: Lachmann TCG-10 (V: -0.52 | H: -0.28)

Who did the setup? The setup comes from YouTuber and CoD expert WhosImmortal. He is known in the community for quickly and reliably rating the meta after each update.

What is the meta?

The word meta describes something that is above or outside of things. It is known in combination like the meta level, which describes a connection beyond the film. In gaming, meta means the currently best weapon, equipment or strategy to be successful in the respective game. (here the English “most effective tactic available” – the most effective tactic – can serve as the origin)

Warzone 2: MP5 in Season 2 Reloaded in the meta – that’s why

Here’s why the MP5 is so powerful: There are several reasons why the MP5 made it into the Warzone 2 meta in Season 2 Reloaded. The most important is the mobility that the weapon brings with it. The data for this can be found on, where resourceful dataminers* disclose them. In the tactical sprint you cover 7.48 meters per second. And even with your sights on, you still cover between 2.56 and 3.16 meters per second.

Although there are weapons that bring a little more mobility, the MP5 in Season 2 Reloaded has a time to kill (TTK) of up to about 16 meters, which is impressive. You bring it to 525ms at a distance of eight meters. After that, the TTK increases to 675ms up to 16 meters, which is still extremely strong. Mainly because the gun’s recoil is extremely easy to control.

To complete the loadout: The MP5 is primarily designed for close combat. From a distance of 20 meters you have to hit very well and rely on the fact that your opponent has no hands or reflexes. For long-range combat, we recommend the Tempus Torrent Setup for Warzone 2. This is reminiscent of the DMR meta from Warzone and should serve you well in medium to long-range combat.
