Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's MP5 has been regarded as one of the best weapons in the game. From reaching certain ranks to increasing your weapon levels, here's everything you need to know about unlocking the MP5.

How to Get the MP5 in Modern Warfare 2

The gun progression system in Modern Warfare 2 might prolong the process of unlocking the MP5, but the stats of the weapon make the gun an invaluable tool for many players. Known as the Lachmann Sub, the MP5 consists of three ways for unlocking its highly regarded features.

Players should first gain rank 16 in order to get the Lachmann-762 Battle Rifle. After receiving this rifle, it's recommended to gain weapon level 13 when unlocking the Lachmann-556 Assault Rifle. When players receive the Lachmann-556 weapon, they should gain weapon level 12 in order to unlock the MP5.

Some Call of Duty fans might recall the simple process of gaining weapons through leveling up in previous games, but Modern Warfare 2 takes a different approach to gain weapons. The steps for getting the MP5, which has been regarded as the top SMG in the game, consist of experimenting with both a battle rifle and an assault r.ifle.

Players might notice the struggle in leveling up during this process because the most recent meta leans towards SMGs. Fortunately, when gaining the MP5, its stats suggest that the weapon will perform well in multiplayer mode.
