  • MP5
MP5: A good early weapon to use
  • MP7
MP7: Once unlocked this is a perfect machine of war

Both of these outperform the rest and should definitely be your SMG of choice. The MP5 is a fully automatic 9mm Submachine Gun that is a perfect combination of stability, mobility and deadly force.

The MP7 is compact by design, fully automatic and has a high rate of fire with low recoil, making it a shred machine.

The right attachment combination

The MP5 is unlocked at the low level of 12, making it a good candidate for early gameplay. Using these 5 attachments will take it from a good gun to an amazing one.

GUNSMITH: The right attachments can make for a deadly combination
  • Muzzle – Muzzle Break – increases recoil stabilization
  • Stock – FORGE TAC Ultralight – increases aim walking movement speed
  • Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip – Increases both recoil stabilization and aiming stability
  • Ammunition – 10mm Auto 30-Round Mags – Increases damage and range
  • Rear Grip – Stippled Grip Tape – Increases both aim down speed and sprint to fire speed
