In the Season 2 update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the developers decided enough was enough and nerfed the top submachine guns in multiplayer. As most current players know, the Vaznev-9K was the best all-around SMG in MW2, featuring terrific stats across the board and even possessing the ability to compete with assault rifles at long range. This nerf affected Ranked Play players more than anyone else, as the Vaznev was far and away the best choice for aggressive players. Now, the Lachmann Sub and its loadout are looking mighty attractive to some Ranked Play enthusiasts.
The Lachmann Sub has always been seen as the SMG in waiting when it comes to competitive play. It never had the overall handling to be better than the Vaznev-9K. While the Lachmann’s damage and range were right there with the Vaznev, it didn’t make sense to pick it. However, that has now changed for some players, as the Vaznev saw a significant nerf to its overall damage in Season 2. If you are looking to replace the Vaznev with the Lachmann Sub, you’ll need its absolute best set of attachments for Ranked Play.
To see the best Lachmann Sub loadout for Ranked Play, keep reading below.
Ranked Play loadout for the Lachmann Sub in MW2
- Muzzle: Spiral V3.4 Flash Hider
- Barrel: L38 Falcon 226mm
- Underbarrel: Edge 47 Grip
- Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10
The main issue with the Lachmann Sub in terms of competitive play is that it didn’t have better mobility and handling than the Vaznev. However, we can turn the tide in favor of the Lachmann with a couple of attachments. The L38 Falcon 226mm barrel improves mobility while the Edge 47 Grip gives players slightly better accuracy and stability. The Spiral V3.4 Flash Hider and Lachmann TCG-10 vastly increase recoil control without lowering mobility too greatly.
You’ll also notice we didn’t put a stock on; all of the attachments in that category harm accuracy or mobility too much that it’s better to not equip one. Other than that, this Lachmann Sub loadout is ready to go for Ranked Play in MW2.
