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 become one of the meta weapons in Warzone over the past few months, and players very well may want to have that translate over into MW2. While the Vaznev-9K is the superior weapon, the Lachmann Sub can be a solid alternative, especially at close range with the right attachments.

To see the best Lachmann Sub loadout for Ranked Play, keep reading below.

Ranked Play loadout for the Lachmann Sub in MW2

  • Muzzle: Bruen Pendulum
  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226mm
  • Stock: FT Mobile Stock
  • 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. Luckily, there are a few attachments you can equip on its loadout to mitigate those shortcomings. The L38 Falcon 226mm barrel improves mobility while the Edge 47 Grip gives players slightly better accuracy and stability. The Bruen Pendulum muzzle and the Lachmann TCG-10 vastly increase recoil control without lowering mobility too greatly.

Fortunately, the FT Mobile Stock helps out with that loss to mobility by improving your overall aim down sights time. While the Lachmann Sub won’t be as mobile as the Vaznev-9K, you will be able to compete with it and any other weapon in Ranked Play using this loadout.
