Modern Warfare 2: Best Lachmann Sub Loadouts [Tested]

After playing MW2 for 120+ hours, here are my loadout recommendations for Lachmann Sub.

The Lachmann weapons series are some of the best guns in COD Modern Warfare 2. That is due to the fact that these weapons each excel in their category. When you equip the weapon with the right class setup, it becomes truly unstoppable on the battlefield. So, make sure to know about the best Lachmann Sub loadout in Modern Warfare 2.

Key Takeaways
  • Lachmann Sub is the dominating SMG in Modern Warfare 2.
  • It has great accuracy when it comes to nailing down the opponent in mere seconds
  • Players should go with the optimal attachments for the best performance.
  • The Lachmann Sub works best with X13 Auto, preferably its Side Impact blueprint.
  • You can either use it to deal good damage at mid-range with low mobility or deal good damage at close range with high mobility.

Best Lachmann Sub Loadout In Modern Warfare 2

Here are the two options I recommend while creating the Best Lachmann Sub Loadout in MW2:

Loadout 1- Barrel: FTAC M-SUB 12
- Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
- Rear Grip: LM Cronus Grip
- Magazine: 50-Round Drum

X13 Auto’s blueprint Side Impact- Basic Perk 1: Battle Hardened

Dead Silence

There are numerous Loadouts to the Lachman Sub in the game. That is because the gun has many attachment slots. Each of these slots has a variety of attachments for you to put in them. So, you’ll get tons of loadouts from these attachments.

Now, all of these attachments can be better. To make the best loadouts, you’d have to carefully test out each of the attachments available for the gun. Now, that is a tedious job. Making a loadout, testing it, checking out its flaws, and then remaking or completely revamping it. These loadouts are designed to work best.

Lachmann Sub Loadout No 1

The first loadout of the Lachmann Sub focuses on the stability of the gun and ensures that you stay longer in the fights. It has enough healing factors to ensure that you heal yourself after every kill. Not only that, the perks are focused on resupplying you with ammo. Your goal will be to hunt enemies while staying off the radar with the Ghost perk.

Barrel Muzzle Underbarrel Magazine Rear Grip
FTAC M-SUB 12” SA Schalldampfer 99 FSS Sharkfin 90 50-Round Drum LM Cronus Grip
  • Recoil Control
  • Aiming Idle Stability
  • Increased Bullet Velocity
  • Improved Hip Fire Accuracy
  • Aiming Idle Stability


  • Reduced Walking Speed
  • Decreased Sprinting Speed
  • Crouch Movement Speed


In the first loadout, the attachments that I put on the Lachmann Sub focus on the stability of the weapon. They increase the Aim Down Sight stability of it, so you can easily aim for the head. Even if you can’t aim down the sight, you’ll have enough stability to take out the opponents with the hip fire mode. 

Secondary Weapon

For the Secondary Weapon, I prefer the X13 Auto. Now the X13 Auto in itself is great. You can take it in a fight and have great results with it. For that, you’d need to add one or two attachments to make it reliable.

For the Lachmann Sub Class Loadout and Setup, I decided to use its Side Impact Blueprints. The blueprints come with a pre-made set of attachments. You might have unlocked the Side Impact in the beta of the game. For that, you’d have to get to rank 15. If you got it, then you’re in good luck, as it is a powerful version of X13 Auto.


With the Perks, you can seldom go wrong. That is because all of the perks in the game are great. But, to maximize the benefit you get from these perks, I have prepared the Best Perk Package. 

  • Basic Perks: Tracker and Scavenger
  • Bonus Perk: Quick Fix
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost


For the equipment, you have two choices, Tactical and Lethal.

  • For the Tactical, I suggest going with the Shock Stick.
  • Now, it is great as you’ll electrocute enemies and cripple them.
  • Not only that, if there is equipment near you, you’ll be able to destroy it. Overall, it is a great addition to the Loadout when you’re chasing opponents.
  • Semtex packs the power of a C4. It sticks to whatever surface it touches, even other players.
  • If a player is running away from you, use it on them. If they run away from you, it won’t save them from getting killed.

Field Upgrade

The Field Upgrade selected for the Loadout is none other than Dead Silence. As your main play is to track down the opponent and kill them, it goes well with the setup. Now, When you activate it, your footsteps will become silent. If you get a kill with a Gun, melee, or throwing knife, it will refresh the duration.

Lachmann Sub Loadout No 2

Now, the loadout No. 2 of the Lachmann Sub focuses solely on going after the opponents in Modern Warfare 2. In it, I have decided to go full mobility. The perks focus on ensuring that you don’t get slowed down longer by the stuns or other tactical equipment.

Barrel Stock Underbarrel Magazine Rear Grip
FTAC M-SUB 12” No Stock Lockgrip Precision-40 40-Round Drum Lachmann TCG-10
  • Impressive Mobility
  • Aiming Idle Stability
  • Increased Magazine
  • Sprint to Fire Speed
  • Better firing rate


  • Aim Down Sight Speed
  • Not fastest TTK


Here, your goal is to get the Attachments that increase the gun’s mobility. Your goal is to keep moving and don’t let your opponents corner you. The class isn’t as durable, but with mobility, you can come out safe out of any dangers.

Secondary Weapon

For the secondary weapon, there is no better option than the X13 Auto’s blueprint Side Impact. It is almost the same as the Lachmann Sub, and it goes well with the current Loadout Build.

  • I’ve already explained its use case in the first class build of the Lachmann Sub.
  • It is great for when you have to reload the gun. At that time, switching to Secondary is always better than reloading the gun.
  • By getting to level 15 of the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta, you unlock the Side Impact.
  • Once you acquire it, it’ll be yours to keep permanently.


Now, your playthrough with the loadout is to go after opponents and take them out. Your role is that of a hunter. So, the perks I recommend with the class setup of the Lachmann Sub increase your agent’s mobility and endurance against opponents’ flashes, etc.

  • Basic Perks: Battle Hardened and Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Hardline


Your main goal with the loadout is to stay in battle for the longest possible duration. That is only possible if you have all the healing abilities with you to heal you. Usually, Quick Fix would be the perk that you’ll use. But in the current Class Setup of Lachmann Sub, you can use the Medical Syringe. It deals with maximum health in a little over 2 seconds. You can use your weapons one-handed while healing yourself.

Preferably, whenever you’re healing yourself, it is better to do it in a safe spot. So that no one can kill you while you’re healing. What better to cover your six than the Claymore? It is a ‘Proximity-activated explosive mine’ that triggers whenever an opponent is near it.

Field Upgrade

Dead Silence is again the best Field Upgrade for the loadout. That is because, with it, you’ll be able to go behind opponents to take them out. The opponents won’t even hear you coming after them.

My Thoughts On Lachmann Sub

The Lachmann Sub is definitely one of the best SMGs available in the game. I further enhance the Lachmann Sub’s abilities with the help of the most optimal attachments and setup. That is because, even though it is the best SMG, it had a few tweaks that needed to be taken care of before it could truly be called the Best SMG.

So, for that, I have made two loadouts. These loadouts are quite diverse when it comes to killing opponents. Remember, Lachmann Sub is the MP5 SMG, so it doesn’t have that high damage. To make up for that damage, you need to close the gap between you and the opponent. What’s better than getting high mobility to get to the opponent and then take them out?

In the end, I suggest taking a look at Huzaifah Durrai’s comprehensive review of Modern Warfare 2 for an in-depth analysis.
