The submachine gun class from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009) features some solid go-to weapons for close quarters encounters. While not as extensive an offering as the assault rifle class, the SMG class still packs a punch. In this list we’re looking at all submachine guns from Modern Warfare 2 (2009).
At first glance, the Mini-Uzi is not everyone’s cup of tea. That’s due to the other SMGS being favored over the Mini-Uzi in terms of competitive play. Its rate of fire is faster than that of the UMP45 and on par with the P90, but the latter is a fairer option thanks to its already generous magazine size. Still, the Mini-Uzi is a fun alternative to traditional play. Equipping a silencer benefits this SMG. You can’t go wrong with Akimbo and Hip Fire Pro in Free-For-All matches. FMJ or Extended Mags are also viable options for attachments, thanks to the Mini-Uzi having clear iron sights.
Looking back, it feels like the MP5K is an underused and underappreciated submachine gun. It felt like carrying a miniature assault rifle, making it a perfect choice for running and gunning. However, to use the MP5K like an assault rifle can spell disaster for long range engagements. Its true strength is in real tight spaces where it can tear apart the competition. Slapping on Stopping Power and Rapid Fire does the MP5K good and it’s one of the best SMGs to run Akimbo.
Of all submachine guns from Modern Warfare 2 (2009) the P90 is easily remembered for its ridiculously large magazine size. Of course, as with several other SMGs in its class, the P90 is not at the top of everyone’s list. However, depending on your thoughts of the iron sights, a red dot or holographic sight can make target acquisition much simpler. If you’re willing to sacrifice your blue perk for Bling Pro, then the combination of a Silencer and Akimbo has potential to be severely lethal if not infuriating for other players.
Ah, yes, the UMP45. Depending on who you’re talking to, this weapon is top-tier and single handedly the best submachine gun from Modern Warfare 2. That’s because of its power output. At practically every range, the UMP45 is a three-shot kill without the need of Stopping Power. In terms of long range performance, it would be best to exercise a steady trigger finger and fire in controlled bursts. However, equipping the aforementioned perk isn’t a bad choice for small maps due to the UMP45’s lower rate of fire compared to other SMGs in its class.
The Vector easily has to be one of the most undervalued submachine guns in Modern Warfare 2. Stats-wise it doesn’t have an impressive damage output compared to the other SMGs in its class. It boasts the highest rate of fire of all the SMGs, which is a redeeming quality for the Vector. This also makes Rapid Fire an unnecessary attachment. What’s more is that the Vector has the most clear iron sights of all the SMGs. Because of that, a Silencer or Extended Mags are both great options for attachments. Equipping Stopping Power can make players a strong contender, especially considering the Vector’s natural rate of fire can keep the body count climbing.
