MP5 Best Attachments & Class Setups Black Ops Cold War

The MP5 is a fully auto submachine gun in COD Black Ops Cold War. The MP5s strong point in the SMG category is its low recoil in comparison to the AK74u. This makes it easier to control than the other subs. It also has a fast fire rate which makes it lethal in close range.

It has the second-best time to kill among the SMGs after the AK74u at 280ms. Its only downside is the bullet velocity which can be corrected using attachments. We will get further into that below.

Weapon background

The MP5 is a Call of Duty classic. It has appeared in nearly every Call of Duty title except Black Ops 3 and 4 and titles pre COD 4. 


  • Damage: 32 -23 Headshot Damage: 1.4X Multiplier
  • Rate of Fire: 857RPM
  • Recoil: Moderate to high
  • Time to Kill: 280ms

From the weapon stats above we can see that the MP5 is a 5 to 7 shots to kill. The weapon will deal maximum damage from anywhere within 10 meters. Its main strengths are its strong time to kill combined with its fast fire rate.

The best attachments for the MP5 in Cold War are the:

  • 9.5” Extended Barrel
