SMGs and assault rifles are the most popular weapons in almost every shooter, and definitely in Call of Duty. Especially in fast multiplayer matches on the rather small maps, SMGs have dominated Call of Duty over the past few years. In Modern Warfare 2, however, the pacing has changed significantly. The entire movement is a bit slower and more careful, tactical play is rewarded. This makes submachine guns not quite as overpowered as they once were, but they are still damn strong.

We took a look at all available SMGs in Modern Warfare 2 in the Gunsmith and created a ranking of the best submachine guns in MW2 for you.

Best SMGs In Modern Warfare 2

3. Fennec 45

The Fennec 45 is the well-known Vector and for now the worst of all available SMGs. It is characterized by an extremely high rate of fire and shreds absolutely everything in close combat. Since it quickly runs out of ammunition due to the extreme fire rate and it really only works in close combat, it is a very situational gun and only good in very few encounters.

2. FSS Hurricane

The FSS Hurricane is the SMG version of the M4. Unlike its assault rifle counterpart, it has the magazine on top of the barrel, like the P90. It is very mobile, easy to control and accurate. Thanks to its pretty good range, it is the perfect flex weapon for everyone who likes to be fast and mobile without lacking range or having to rely on an Overkill loadout.

1. Lachmann Sub

The Lachmann Sub is the SMG version of the Lachmann-556 and actually the well-known MP5. As usual for CoD, it is once again the most powerful submachine gun in Modern Warfare 2. It is extremely mobile, even with a huge 50-round magazine. The MP5's damage is also good – the SMG really shreds at short to medium distances. In our opinion, the Lachmann Sub is the best SMG that any player should be able to handle with ease.
