Best SMG in Warzone 2.0

Warzone 2.0 has been recently released and the fans are already trying to get an edge over their opponents by finding the most overpowered and broken weapons in the game to assert their dominance and wipe out entire enemy squads.

The SMGs are one of the best weapon types to choose from in Warzone 2.0 with their high rate of fire, great damage output, and surprising accuracy. It becomes very tough to select the best SMG, given the fact that the game provides an arsenal of weapons of various types each with its temptations.

Thus, I have decided to list the best SMGs in Warzone 2.0 to help you win more games and wipe out squads before they even know what hit them. 

Disclaimer: The rankings are based on the current meta and my personal opinions.

9. MX9

The MX9 is a mediocre SMG at best. The gun is good at dishing out decent damage but without proper attachments, its recoil can be all over the place as you will have little control over it. The gun also suffers from range issues and won’t be useful at all for those mid to long ranges, and the default magazine clip only holds 25 bullets (pathetic).

The gun features a good fire rate, mobility, and handling, and is great at close quarters. The MX9 is not quite as versatile as some other SMGs on this list. 

What makes this gun great? – Decent fire rate, mobility, and handling 

I. Recommended Attachments

  • Barrel: 16.5” STB Factory (Good for increasing range)
  • Muzzle: SA Schalldampfer 99 (Suppresses bullet sound, increases recoil control and bullet velocity)
  • Magazine: 32 Round Mag (More Bullets = fewer reloads)
  • Comb: FTAC C11 Riser (Increases mobility)
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW (Reduces ADS time)

8. Vel 46

The Vel 46 is another very mundane SMG in Warzone 2.0. It is not bad but like MX9 it is very easy to outclass. The gun is great for close-range fights, with a good rate of fire and very quick reload speed, this makes it easier for you to catch your opponents with their pants down.

While that may sound great, the Vel 46 is useless against enemies at long ranges as its damage falls quite rapidly. You can forget to deal damage to heavily armored opponents from a distance. The gun is a decent secondary weapon as it offers great fire rate, mobility, and handling allowing you to chase down your low-health enemies or in fleeing. 

What makes this gun great? – Quick reload speed

I. Recommended Attachments

  • Muzzle: XTEN RR-40 (Suppresses bullet’s sound, great for increasing damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control)
  • Stock: VEL A-568 Collapsed (Better ADS time and sprint speeds)
  • Magazine: 50-Round Mag (More bullets = less reloads = more kills)
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90 (Provides stability)
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Soldier Grip (Further enhances ADS times and sprint speeds)

7. Minibak

The Minibak is what I call an ‘Anti Gank’ weapon, the gun features a 64-bullet magazine, allowing you to deal with an entire enemy squad without having to reload your gun, and it is remarkably precise. 

Best SMG in Warzone 2.0

The gun however fails in every other aspect, the damage is not great, and it takes a lot of time before you can secure a kill. The mobility and fire rate are good but are not enough to compensate for the low damage output. You can easily use the Minibak to laser enemies at medium range but keep in mind that it’s going to take a lot more than a few bullets, which with its huge magazine, is not an issue.

What makes this gun great? – Good magazine capacity, Precise aim

I. Recommended Attachments

  • Barrel: BAK-9 279MM (Helps in increasing bullet velocity and damage range)
  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp (Same purpose as the barrel)
  • Stock: Ortezat Stock (Better ADS time, and sprint speed)
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip (Increases sprint speed and decreases ADS speed)
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro (Provides clear visuals to make it easier to aim at enemies’ heads)

6. Vaznev 9k

The Vaznev 9k is a formidable weapon, it features a good TTK (Time to Kill), unlike most SMGs, its damage output is great and the ADS speeds are excellent. Why the gun lacks behind is due to its low magazine capacity, which will either lead you to waste an attachment slot, or leave you dry between gun fights. The recoil control is also at the best average.

Even if you put the best attachments on the Vaznev 9k, it will still be outclassed by some of the other SMGs, which is why it sits so low on the list.

What makes this gun great? – Great ADS speed, decent TTK

I. Recommended Attachments

  • Muzzle: Lock shot KT85 (Improves horizontal and vertical recoil control)
  • Stock: Ortezat Stock (Improves sprint speeds)
  • Laser: Schlager Peq Box IV (Enchances ADS speed)
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot (Provides clear visual allowing to track enemies easily)
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip (Increases sprint speed while reducing ADS capabilities)

5. BAS-P

The BAS-P features great accuracy and range and this gun is capable of medium-range engagements without an issue. It features a decent rate of fire but the damage output is quite low.  The weapon comes with a 50-bullet magazine by default, thus, freeing up an attachment slot that you can use to enhance its damage.

Best SMG in Warzone 2.0

The gun is a very versatile weapon and can be customized to your choice and preferences. Overall, it’s a solid weapon in itself and capable of many things but it does not shine in any special way.

What makes this gun great? – Stable aim, good at medium range

I. Recommended Attachments

  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90 (Provides stability for mid-range gunfights)
  • Barrel: 10.5” Bruen Typhon (Sliglty increases damage range and bullet velocity, also offers sound suppression)
  • Magazine: 50-Round Drum (The drum magazine makes it easier to reload and 50 bullets are always welcome)
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW (Increases sprint and rate of fire)
  • Rear Grip: D37 Grip (Helps in recoil control)

4. PDSW-528

The PDSW-528 is a cool gun. I mean, just look at it. Simply beautiful. But the looks are not the only thing running for this weapon. It features a high bullet velocity, and quick reload speeds. The gun comes with a 50-round magazine, thus ensuring fewer reloads between fights. 

Best SMG in Warzone 2.0

The ADS speed, mobility, and handling might not be the best when compared to other SMGs, but it can easily be rectified with proper attachments. Like the Minibak gun can help you fight entire enemy squads without worrying about low ammo count. This weapon is a safe option for any type of player. 

What makes this gun great? – High bullet velocity, good magazine capacity

I. Recommended Attachments

  • Barrel: 17” Corvus Pro range (Increases recoil control, damage range, bullet velocity)
  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp (Reduces recoil)
  • Comb: TV Taccomb (Enhances ADS speed and firing speed)
  • Rear Grip: Stip-40 Grip (Enhances recoil control, thus increasing accuracy)
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro (Provides clear aim to your enemies)

3. Fennec-45

The Fennec-45 boasts one of the best TTK in the SMG class and can kill enemies at a wicked-fast speed. It features an excellent rate of fire, and it is a very formidable weapon at close ranges but becomes somewhat useless when the range increases. But this does not mean that it is not capable of shredding your opponents. The only downside? The recoil is a bit hard to manage.

The Fennec is a great choice and with proper attachments, you can increase accuracy, and reduce recoil which will further help you in winning those close-range fights.

What makes this gun great? – Fast TTK, great for close range 

I. Recommended Attachments

  • Muzzle: XTEN RR-40 (Increase range and bullet velocity)
  • Barrel: ZLR 16.5” Ignition Barrel (Increases hip fire accuracy, recoil control, damage range, and bullet velocity)
  • Laser: 1MW Quick Fire Laser (Increases ADS speed)
  • Stock: Agile Assault-7 Stock (Enhances your overall speed)
  • Magazine: Fennec Mag 45 (isn’t obvious by now? More bullets = Fewer reloads)

2. FSS Hurricane

So, I was confused about where to put FSS Hurricane on the list since it is such an outstanding gun. The gun is very accurate and has a very good rate of fire, and has excellent range making it ideal for mid-range gun fights.

It features above-average mobility and handling, and great recoil control, this weapon is an absolute beast. The large magazine allows you to easily chase down your enemies, without worrying too much about reloading. 

What makes this gun great? – Precise aim, almost no recoil, good damage

I. Recommended Attachments

  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56 (Provides stability and increases recoil control, making hip fire very accurate)
  • Barrel: FSS Cannonade 16” (Greatly increases range and hip fire accuracy)
  • Muzzle: AVR-790 Comp (Helps in horizontal recoil control)
  • Stock: Assault-60 Stock Factory (Further enhances recoil control)
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro (A great optic for close-range fights)

1. Lachmann Sub

The Lachmann Sub is the best SMG in Warzone 2.0, it provides outstanding mobility, handling, rate of fire, damage, and recoil control. It is excellent at close ranges, with good accuracy, and a fast TTK (Time to Kill), Lachmann Sub has got it all.

The only issue which you might face is that it is not best at medium ranges but SMGs are not meant for medium ranges.  The Lachmann Sub packs quite a punch and will make short work of your opponents.

What makes this gun great? – Highly versatile, great mobility, great rate of fire, fast TTK, great accuracy

I. Recommended Attachments

  • Muzzle: SA Schalldampfer 99 (It provides sound suppression)
  • Barrel: FTAC M-SUB 12” (Provides an increase in range and accuracy)
  • Magazine: 50 – Round Drum (Provides quick reloads, high round capacity means fewer reloads in-between fights)
  • Rear Grip: LM Cronus Grip (Increases handling of the weapon, thus increasing recoil control)
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90 (Provides stability for mid-range gunfights)
