The MP5 used to be one of the best weapons in all of Call of Duty: Warzone. Almost every load out had some combination of the MP5 and another weapon. The gun has undergone 13 nerfs since then, but never fell all the way out of favor. Now it appears to be back in the meta.

According to a TikTok posted by superavrage, the MP5 is still usable in today's meta of Vanguard weapons. This post comes as a part of a series where superavrage is "Making MW Meta's" where different MW weapons and their viabilities in the current landscape are shown off.

The loadout that superavrage claims that the MP5 is still the hip fire meta, and they say that you don't need to aim down sights at all in order to take down your enemy. If his TikTok is any indication, he isn't lying. The attachments he uses are:

  • Mono Integral Barrel
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mag
  • 5 MW Laser
  • FTAC Collapsible Stock

The combination of the laser attachment, foregrip and stock is deadly for hip firing. All three attachments work to decrease the size of the spread while hip firing. With the addition of the larger magazine capacity, the MP5 is sure to defeat its opponents.
