Call of Duty fans, get ready for another year of MP5 gameplay.

The MP5 is the default submachine gun in Black Ops Cold War, but that doesn’t mean it’s a slouch. It’s a solid option when leveling up on small to medium maps, and it’s pretty fun to experiment with.

Like all guns in Black Ops Cold War, the MP5 can be equipped with five or eight attachments, depending on your Wild Card, and there’s a decent amount of flexibility to how the weapon will function.

While the MP5 is out-classed by the AK-74u, it can still hold its own in battle. Here’s just a couple of the best MP5 loadouts in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
