The MP40 is a very dominant gun in multiplayer, and it was just as great when it was integrated into Warzone. After some nerfs, the MP-40 isn't quite the top dog anymore, but it still is a very viable SMG, and if you don't want to level the newer guns, this makes a great fallback option. Let's dive into the best MP-40 Loadout.

Note: This is a build for Warzone, if you want to use the MP-40 in multiplayer then we recommend following this guide.

This Loadout maximizes Mobility as much as possible. Since the MP-40 does get outgunned by other meta SMGs, we want to make up for it by using it as a good secondary for a long-range-AR. If you want more strafe speed, you can also opt for the SG98 Compact underbarrel. However, if you really want to go for that CQC action, we recommend the Type 100 instead.

The nerfs did bring the power level of the NZ-41 down, but not quite enough, since it is still by far the best AR in the game. This gun just has non-existent recoil and a superb damage profile out at range. Since the MP-40 excels at close range gun fights, we had to pair it with an AR. If you're bored of the NZ, other great Options are the BAR, Cooper Carbine and KG M-40.

The Best Equipment for the MP40

LethalThrowing Knife

These are very conventional picks for Warzone equipment, but for good reason. The stims can give our high mobility MP-40 even more speed, making it easier to outplay opponents. On the other hand, we have the throwing knife, which is just the best lethal equipment in the game. Makes finishing kills a lot easier.

The Best Perks for the MP40

Perk 1Serpentine
Perk 2Overkill

Perk 3

Battle Hardend

Overkill is obviously a necessary pick for any Loadout that runs two primary guns. We opted for Serpentine, since it's insane with weapons where you're sprinting around like a mad man, which is what we should be doing with this MP-40. Lastly, we have Battle Hardend, so we can counter those annoying snapshot abusers.

And there you have it. A complete overview of the current MP-40 meta in Warzone, including the attachment setup and the loadout. Now get out there and get some wins.
