Best Warzone 2.0 SMG Class Loadouts: Attachments, Setup, Perks
Written by: Shizza

If you are a fan of close-quarter gunfights and putting pressure on your enemies with aggressive plays in Warzone 2, then SMGs are the way for you to go.


However, with each and every Modern Warfare 2 SMG available to choose from, it can be hard for players to make the right call on which one they should choose to drop into Al-Mazrah with.

If you have moved on from Warzone Caldera to the long-awaited sequel, then you have landed at the right place to figure out exactly which Warzone 2 SMGs you should be using and why.



In this article, we will rank them from best to worst, along with providing you with the most powerful meta loadout for each.



1. Fennec 45




Best Fennec 45 Warzone 2.0 Loadout


  • Magazine: Fennec Mag 45
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
  • Stock: Agile Assault-7
  • Muzzle: Lacerta Compensator


As of right now, the Fennex 45 is the best SMG in the game, with a fire rate that will blow your mind, as well as its TTK (Time To Kill). Its recoil can be a problem, but so long as players use it sensibly, there is no better option right now for knocking down your enemies.


Also, make sure that you equip the extended mags, as you will be going through your ammo nearly as quickly as you will get through your enemy’s armor.



2. Lachmann Sub




Best Lachmann Sub Warzone 2.0 Loadout


  • Stock: LM Stockless MOD
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10
  • Magazine: 40-Round Mag
  • Muzzle: XTEN RR-40
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW


The Lachmann Sub, also known as the MP5 among Call of Duty veterans, is another one of the famous all-rounders. The gun’s damage and range keep players in medium-range gunfights, whereas its recoil is minimal enough to master with little practice.



3. Vaznec-9K




Best Vaznev-9K Warzone 2.0 Loadout


  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip
  • Barrel: SA Response III
  • Magazine: 45-Round Mag
  • Muzzle: AVR T-90 Comp
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro


You can very well say that the Vaznev-9K boasts the best damage of any SMG. As a result, the weapon is extremely strong at close to medium ranges. The only things that hold it back in Warzone 2 are a slightly slower fire rate as well as a moderate kick.


However, learning its recoil pattern is a one-way ticket to holding your own in all the close to medium-range skirmishes.



4. MX9




Best MX9 Warzone 2.0 Loadout


  • Comb: FTAC C11 Riser
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7mW
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip
  • Barrel: 508mm Rear Guard
  • Magazine: 32-Round Mag


The MX9 is an impressive SMG in Modern Warfare 2, but in Warzone 2.0, it is finally starting to stand out on its own. Its damage is still among the weaker of the SMGs, but its recoil, handling, and speed combined make the weapon much easier to master and make it the perfect sniper support weapon.


A simple damage buff could raise it in the rankings and help it make a place for itself in one of the top spots.



5. Minibak




Best Minibak Warzone 2.0 Loadout


  • Stock: Otrezat Stock
  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip
  • Barrel: BAK-9 279MM
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro


The Minibak, similar to the PDSW, comes with a huge magazine which is why it is the ideal weapon for Warzone 2.0’s team-based modes. It has a slightly better range and damage which makes it the more powerful option.


However, the Minibak has a rather slow fire rate and has a little too much recoil to be dominant in Warzone 2 right now. With the loadouts given above, the weapon will increase significantly in performance, so give it a whirl!



6. FSS Hurricane




Best FSS Hurricane Warzone 2.0 Loadout


  • Stock: Demo Fade Pro Stock
  • Muzzle: AVR-T90 Comp
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Barrel: FSS Cannonade 16″ Barrel
  • Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip


The FSS Hurricane is a pretty powerful all-around SMG, also known as the jack of all trades, but it is the master of none. It features a modest kick, decent range as well as damage. A few simple buffs by Infinity Ward might make this weapon a dominant weapon, but they have not come as of yet.



7. VEL 46




Best VEL 46 Warzone 2.0 Loadout


  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Magazine: 50-Round Mag
  • Muzzle: XTEN RR-40
  • Underbarrel: Edge-47 Grip
  • Stock: VEL A-568 Collapsed


The VEL 46, also known as the MP7 title it had in the previous Call of Duty games, is a quick-firing SMG that is deadly up close when placed in the right hands.


Unluckily, though, this gun is no longer as powerful as it used to be in the first Warzone, and in spite of the attachments to improve its accuracy, handling, and magazine size, the VEL 46 is not meta just yet.



8. PDSW 528




Best PDSW 528 Warzone 2.0 Loadout


  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Comb: Mack 8 Ontrak Comb
  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip
  • Barrel: FTAC Series IX 14.5″


The biggest strength of the PDSW 528 is the size of its magazine, which allows players to knock down numerous players before having to reload. However, its damage and range both leave a lot to be desired, and currently, there are so many alternative SMGs that have significantly more powerful TTKs.



9. BAS-P




Best BAS-P Warzone 2.0 Loadout


  • Rear Grip: D37 Grip
  • Barrel: 10.5″ Bruen Typhon
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Magazine: 50-Round Drum
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW


The BAS-P was released with the first season of Modern Warfare 2, so it is still finding its place among the other SMGs and is making a name for itself. Early indications suggest that it is a mediocre weapon with a lot of recoil and not enough damage to really make an impact.
