Best SMGs For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

In total, there are three SMGs that you can choose from in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Each gun has its own specialty, and we’ll break down its mechanics so you can pick the right one for you:

Lachmann Sub

The Lachmann Sub is possibly the best SMG you can equip in MW2 since it is fully automatic 9mm with excellent mobility and stability. Although it has one of the least rounds in the group, it still holds up with its easy handling. However, if you select this particular weapon, you may notice it is locked, like many other gun options.

Fortunately, the YouTube user, PrimitiveAK, is one of the few that has found a way to access the SMG by changing your loadout in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. All you’ll need to do is choose the following options in ‘Create A Loadout’:

  • Hunter-Stalker
  • Shotgun
  • DeadEye (Change the Perk Package)
  • Lachmann-566

Now that you have the Lachmann-566 equipped, you can level up this gun (level 11) to unlock the Lachmann Sub.

FSS Hurricane

The SMG, FSS Hurricane, is a weapon you can obtain from Call of Duty: Vault Edition, where you can also get the Cinder Hurricane. Compared to the Lachmann Sub, it has more range, accuracy, and the highest round capacity. So, if you want a gun with great stability, you’ll want to purchase Vault Edition to get the FSS Hurricane and other items you can get with the package.

Fennec 45

Last but not least is the Fennec 45, which features Subsonic Ammo that hides kill skulls from the enemy team. This SMG is superior with its blinding fire rate, but it does have a lower range, accuracy, and recoil control. To get this weapon, players will need to reach rank 25 and unlock the Precision Airstrike kill streak.
