The MP5 is sought after by many players in CoD MW2 Beta. With several guns to choose from, it is only natural that players will want to use one of the game’s strongest SMGs. But unlocking it isn’t exactly straightforward if you don’t know what you are doing. The purpose of this guide is to quickly explain how you can unlock and get the MP5 in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
How to Unlock & Get the MP5 in CoD MW2 Beta
You can unlock the MP5 in Modern Warfare II by leveling up and upgrading the Lachmann-556 to rank 12. The procedure to unlock guns in this game relies on the new gunsmith 2.0 feature. The idea here is to play with a gun, level it up, and then use it. The goal is to keep leveling it up until you unlock its receiver that lets you unlock the next weapon on the platform. So here is how you can get the MP5.
- Start by playing with the Lachmann-762 and level it up to rank 13. This will give you its receiver and unlock Lachmann-556.
- Next, repeat the process of leveling up but this time use the Lachmann-556 instead. Now level it up to rank 12.
- This will unlock the MP5 which is also commonly known as the Lachmann Sub gun.
Tips for Getting MP5 Faster
- Due to the fact that you have to level up the gun in order to unlock it. You can speed up the process by only using that weapon, instead frequently switching between other weapons.
- Remember you can share the gun modifications between the weapons of the same platform. So if you are having trouble let’s say leveling up Lachmann-556, then make sure you use the modifications you are used to and the ones that work with it. Playing with the gun can be improved or even made more enjoyable by doing this.
- Lastly, make sure you switch to the new weapon once it unlocks. So after you unlock the Lachmann-556 make sure you start using it and aren’t leveling up the Lachmann-762.
