Although the FSS Hurricane became very popular, the Lachmann Sub gained a lot of attention due to how deadly it can be at close range. 

Due to this immense power, it became the go-to SMG of many players, especially if their primary weapon is a heavier gun, such as the Marksman Rifle.

Since the Lachmann Sub can be so deadly up close, you can use it as a secondary or primary weapon. It stands out if you are playing Deathmatch and the map doesn’t have large, open areas.

In order to optimize it, though, you need the right attachments. Here’s the best Lachmann Sub Loadout in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The Best Lachmann-Sub Buid in MW2

Lachmann Sub Cover
  • Barrel: FTAC M-Sub 12″
  • Laser: None
  • Optic: None
  • Stock: None
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Ammunition: None
  • Magazine: 50-Round Drum
  • Rear Grip: LM Cronus Grip
  • Receiver: Lach-9
  • Muzzle: Xten Razor Comp

First of all, you need the FTAC M-Sub 12″ Barrel. It increases your gun’s Bullet Velocity, Range, Hip Fire Accuracy, and Recoil Control.

With that, the Lachmann Sub becomes a more reliable weapon to hit the target when you hold down the trigger. 

This weapon’s gun kick and recoil can be hard to manage, but the attachments above will solve part of that problem. 

They, together with CoD: MW2’s low TTK, let you quickly and effectively eliminate anyone up close without necessarily aiming for the head. Do aim for the head if you can, though.

You can always make the weapon faster by getting rid of its muzzle. This is especially good when you are using it as a secondary weapon. Use a 4MW Laser Box instead to increase your Hip Fire Accuracy.

These attachments ensure this weapon will be as reliable and accurate as it can be at medium distances without sacrificing its damage potential.

This versatility and damage potential is one of the reasons the Lachmann Sub is one of the best weapons for Running and Gunning.

Alternative Lachmann Sub Build

Lachmann Sub
  • Barrel: FTAC M-SUB 12”
  • Laser: None
  • Optic: None
  • Stock: R Recoil-56 Factory Stock
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Ammunition: None
  • Magazine: 15-Round Magazine
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10
  • Receiver: Lach-9
  • Muzzle: None

This alternate build performs quite well for those who are just starting to use this SMG. It is significantly more effective as a secondary weapon. 

This build makes the Lachmann Sub slightly more reliable and more damaging while still being fast. 

The way it can be achieved is by using the 15-Round Magazine. This makes the Lachmann Sub much lighter, which increases your Aim Down Sight Speed and dramatically reduces its Reload Time. 

It won’t be as effective as the most optimized loadout, but you have to start somewhere. With this loadout, you can efficiently engage foes at any distance while having a gun with high damage output up close that lets you move relatively fast.

Once you have all the attachments available, you can go for the optmized version that we recommended or one that you feel more comfortable using.
