Best Lachmann Shroud Attachments

The Lachmann Shroud is the silenced 3-round-burst weapon that never really made a splash back in its release during Warzone 2. But now that we’ve moved on to greener pastures, the Lachmann Shroud has some surprising firepower behind its admittedly strange firing mode. With some choice attachments, this silenced SMG can contend with some of the better weapons in Warzone currently.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Barrel: 170MM Grapple VI
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
  • Ammunition: 9MM Sub OP
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum
  • Stock: Meer Recoil-56 Factory Stock

For Warzone we first need to address every weapon’s range viability, the same goes for the Lachmann Shroud, so we prioritize using the 170MM Grapple VI for better recoil and damage. The XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop is perfect for fast movement speed and aiming down sights, so you’re never caught off guard. We utilize the 9MM Sub OP ammunition to give our bullets some extra bite and cause enemy optics to bounce and flinch harder.

As expected of Warzone we also have the 50 Round Drum when you need to keep shooting and to combat the larger health of enemy combatants. Finally, the Meer Recoil-56 Factory Stock keeps the Lachmann Shroud’s accuracy laser-like.

Best Lachmann Shroud Perks

Here we will list our general perk package for Warzone, feel free to swap in other perks to your preference, but for those wanting a basic set that will do them good, then read on.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Perk 1: Battle Hardened
  • Perk 2: Double Time
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: High Alert

For our perk slots 1 and 2, we use Battle Hardened and Double Time, they are almost a must-have pair. Battle Hardened protects you from the constant flashbang or concussion spam that Warzone players are adapting to. Double Time increases your Tac Sprint duration and recharge time so you can traverse Urzikstan with some safety.

We prefer Tempered in slot 3 as it gives us a faster plating time, utilizes more efficient plates, and frees up some backpack space for grenades, flashes, or other gadgets. As our last perk, we use High Alert as an option to give you much-needed information and save your life from unwanted sniper fire.

Best Lachmann Shroud Attachments

Modern Warfare 3 is an environment where the Lachmann Shroud can shine, due to the emphasis on mobility and speed, this SMG is poised to surprise enemy combatants by its damage and handling. The 3-round-burst firing mode wasn’t a favorite among most players, but now that we are in the MW3 era, there may be a reason to pick up this weapon once again.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Barrel: 114MM Darkstar
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Magazine: 40 Round Magazine
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Stock: Lachmann S76 Factory Stock

With mobility being the name of the game we start off our list with two extremely strong handling options; the 114MM Darkstar barrel and the DR-6 Handstop. Together they vastly increase our handling, movement speed, ADS speed, and sprint-to-fire speeds. To finish off the mobility portion we have the VLK LZR 7MW laser which further improves these aspects once again for a weapon that can be drawn at the drop of a hat.

Finally, the Lachmann S76 Factory Stock offers some much-needed stability improvements after our previous changes impacted this area a fair amount.

Best Lachmann Shroud Perks

Modern Warfare 3 is the first time in a long while that the perk system has gotten any changes. Now we have pieces of body armor that grant unique bonuses just like perks. The Lachmann Shroud will benefit more from mobility perks to facilitate our gameplan.

The best Perks are as follows:

  • Vest: Infantry Vest
  • Gloves: Commando Gloves
  • Boots: Covert Sneakers
  • Gear: EOD Padding

The Infantry Vest is one of the best you can get, increasing your Tac Sprint duration and recharge time for quicker movement through the maps. Our Commando Gloves ensure that we stay on our feet even when reloading; the unique ability of these particular gloves. Combat Sneakers, meanwhile, remove the footstep audio (Dead Silence), allowing you to catch enemies off-guard as you full sprint your way into their spawn.

To top it all off, we have EOD padding that will keep you safe from stray frag grenades or the firepower of killstreaks that threaten to end your streak randomly.

And there you have it. That’s the best Lachmann Shroud loadout in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone. Be sure to stick with us at Twinfinite as we continue to cover all the latest developments surrounding the Call of Duty franchise.
