Modern Warfare’s MP5 SMG has long been a popular choice in Call of Duty: Warzone, so here are the best attachments and perks to maximize its slaying potential in Season 3.
Before Warzone integrated with Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare’s MP5 was top of the pack, being the most used weapon for a considerable amount of time. The meta has changed significantly since then with multiple top dogs now running wild: the Krig, AMAX, LC10, Streetsweeper, and more.
If you’re looking for a well-balanced and reliable SMG, the Modern Warfare MP5 is your best companion for the task.
Here are the best attachments and perks to run with it in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3.
Barrel: Monolithic Integral SuppressorLaser: 5mW LaserUnderbarrel: Merc ForegripAmmunition: 45 Round MagsStock: FTAC Collapsible
Our build has an emphasis on speed and utility. You’ll be able to take down enemies at medium range and close in the gaps quickly with great mobility and accuracy.

The Monolithic Integral Suppressor is the best choice for Modern Warfare’s MP5 as it has all the traits of the standard Monolithic Suppressor, but uses both the muzzle and barrel slots. You’ll stay off the radar while firing, and also receive additional bullet velocity.
As the MP5 is a ‘pocket’ weapon, you want it to be as mobile as possible. To increase its speed, you should add the 5mW Laser and FTAC Collapsible stock. The laser will give you a sprint-to-fire speed boost, and vastly improve your hip-fire accuracy and the stock will allow you to aim down sights quicker and move faster. With these attachments combined, you can be quick and unpredictable in close-range fights.
For extra recoil control and even more hip-fire accuracy, the Merc Foregrip is an excellent choice. You’ll not only be able to hit more accurate shots on enemies at medium distance, but you’ll be able to land much more hip-fire shots at point-blank.
And finally, to make sure you can down and finish several targets in one fight, the 45 Round Mags will be a necessary addition.
Perk 1: E.O.DPerk 2: Overkill then GhostPerk 3: Amped
When choosing which perks to run with the MP5 in Warzone, you want those which will benefit you in close-range engagements. When fighting up close, enemies will often chuck a bombardment of explosives your way to get the upper hand. With E.O.D equipped, you’ll be able to tank a plethora of grenades and Semtex, allowing you to stay in the fight.
As the MP5 is most effective as a secondary, you’ll want to take Overkill from your first Loadout Drop. This will allow you to take two primary weapons such as a HDR, then you can get Ghost from your next Loadout to be concealed from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

To be able to quickly change guns mid-fight, Amped will almost eliminate this weapon swap delay. Whether your primary weapon is out of ammo or you get ambushed at close-range, Amped will be vital to your survival.
Acquiring the Modern Warfare Warzone MP5 isn’t too difficult, isn’t too tough, and its requirements are easy enough.
