What is the best SMG in Warzone Season 2? SMGs are perfect for players that like to be mobile, chase down enemies, and make quick recoveries in close-quarter fights. Even better, they're perfect for players that like their automatic weapons to fire quickly, with short reload times and near-instant ADS times. Warzone has a large number to choose from, so which SMG is the right choice for you?

What is the Best SMG in Warzone Season 2?

The best SMG in Warzone Season 2 is the MAC-10. It has a low TTK (time to kill) and a fast ADS time, and it allows players to remain extremely mobile with a high capacity magazine. The recoil fire pattern is easier to control than most SMGs, and with the right attachments it's near nonexistent.

The MAC-10 has been top dog for a while now. Although the Cold War MP5 and LC10 are good alternatives, the MAC-10 has not been knocked off the throne yet. With additional suspected nerfs yet to come to the FFAR 1 — the assault rifle that's been out-performing all SMGs — we'll most likely see a return to the MAC-10 in a lot of loadouts both casually and competitively. Our recommended attachments are:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 6.1” Reinforced Heavy
  • Ammunition: Salvo 53 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock

Even though the CoD community's general consensus is that the FFAR is a better choice for close range combat, many players still prefer the MAC-10 for its near identical TTK and easier to control recoil pattern. You sacrifice some damage, especially at range, choosing the MAC-10 over the FFAR, but it's still the top choice for SMGs. The MAC-10 also pairs nicely with the best Assault Rifle and best Sniper to in Warzone Season 2.
