This best SMGs to use in Warzone Season 5 list is here to go over what are likely the go-to options to use in Custom Loadouts now that Call of Duty's latest massive, multi-title content update has arrived.

Is the brand-new Season Five TEC-9 SMG worth using? Read on for our rundown of the best SMGs to use in Warzone Season 5.

Best SMGs to Use in Warzone Season 5

5. TEC-9

Of course, we had to throw the new kid on the block in this list. By default, the TEC-9 comes in semi-auto mode, and the early returns are that its time-to-kill numbers in this configuration aren't great. Feel free to try out this gun, but expect to have some trouble until you can get the Full Auto Repeater and STANAG 48 Rnd attachments for it.

4. OTs 9

After having its ADS iron sights fixed with the Season 5 patch, the OTs 9 emerges one of the better hard-hitting SMGs to use up close, with its magazine size being its main drawback.

3. Milano 821

The Milano 821 makes this list not necessarily due to its ability to compete as an SMG, but as a Sniper Support option. With the close-range assault rifles (e.g. RAM-7, FARA 83, FFAR 1 and AK-47 (CW)) simply remaining unable to compete up close, the Milano 821 continues to be the best weapon to pair with a Kar98k or Swiss K31.

2. MAC-10

While the likes of the PPSh-41, Bullfrog, MP7, AK-74u, CX-9, etc., continue to remain within in close proximity of one another, the MAC-10 and Modern Warfare MP5 are simply in a tier of their own. With its ridiculous fire rate, the MAC-10 in particular remains as consistent and forgiving as ever.

As alluded to earlier, the Modern Warfare MP5 is one of, if not the best SMG option in the game, as reflected in the loadouts of most pro Warzone players. It's TTK is unmatched by almost all of the weapons in the game, while its handling has remained consistent from the day Warzone first launched.

With back-to-school season in full swing, now is the perfect time to gear up and power up with the right tools and tech. The Intel Evo laptop and the Blue Label collection, powered by 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors from Best Buy, are among the best options to consider, that will help you tackle school work, take an entertainment break, plus everything else in between.
