Although not all attachments are available right now, you can use the following for a powerful close-mid range Lachmann Sub build in Modern Warfare 2 Beta:

  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Barrel: FTAC M-Sub 12"
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision-40
  • Magazine: 40-Round Mag

Firstly, the muzzle and barrel used here help with vertical and horizontal recoil control, which is essential for landing your shots accurately. The FTAC 12" barrel also boosts the damage range and hipfire accuracy of the gun. If you'd like your MP5 to have better aim-down-sight (ADS) and movement speeds, equip the L38 Falcon 226mm Barrel instead.

Next up, the Lockgrip Precision-40 further improves the hipfire spread and accuracy of the gun to give you an edge in close-quarters combat. While all the aforementioned attachments hurt the weapon's mobility to some extent, the No Stock balances this by adding various mobility features to the gun. Finally, you can use the extended mag for some extra bullets.
