Black Ops Cold War’s MP5 is a great close-range choice in Warzone Season 2, so here are the best attachments and perks to run with it.

The MP5 has been a fan-favorite weapon in almost every Call of Duty title. It hasn’t lost any of its power in Cold War and Warzone, being an underrated gem for close-range combat.

It’s one of the first weapons you’ll unlock, making it an excellent choice for beginners and veterans alike. Here are the best attachments and perks to dominate with BOCW’s MP5 in Warzone Season 2.

Best Cold War MP5 Warzone attachments

Best Cold War MP5 Warzone attachments
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 10.1″ Calvary Lancer
  • Laser: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Grip: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag

This Cold War MP5 is built to dominate at close range. Pair it with a long-range rifle such as the AUG, or if you’re especially confident with your aim, a Sniper Rifle. Quickly switch to it if your primary weapon is out of ammo, or use it in close-quarters situations.

First, we’ve added the Agency Suppressor. This works similarly to the Monolithic Suppressor from Modern Warfare, which increases the weapons range while hiding you from the minimap. For increased versatility, we’ve also equipped the 10.1″ Calvary Lancer barrel. This increases the MP5’s damage at range without any negatives.

To make the MP5 as accurate as possible, you should add the Field Agent Grip. This helps with both horizontal and vertical recoil control, which makes it easy to land headshots up close and stay accurate even at longer ranges. And for some extra accuracy at point-blank, the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight will boost your hip-fire accuracy.

For ammunition, the Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag is ideal. You can down several enemies without ever having to reload, and you’ll also have increased reload speed.

Best perks to use with Cold War’s MP5 in Warzone Season 2

Not only are your weapons important in a Warzone loadout, but your choice of perks can also make or break a class. Here are the perks you should be running with Black Ops Cold War’s MP5 in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

EOD in Cod Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

A major part of Warzone is the lethal equipment at your disposal. Before pushing a room, enemies will lob a bombardment of grenades, rockets, and explosives inside. If you have any hope of surviving, you’ll need the E.O.D perk equipped.

The MP5 is best suited as a secondary weapon, so you want to run Overkill to carry two primaries. If you’re really feeling the MP5 love, you could equip both the Cold War and Modern Warfare versions. Make a duplicate loadout with Ghost instead, and you can swap the Perks out when you get another loadout and keep the weapons.

There’s nothing worse than running out of ammo in a firefight, where you’ll need to quickly swap weapons to have a chance. So for perk 3, the Amped Perk will allow you to swap weapons insanely fast, which is vital in a firefight.

How to unlock Cold War’s MP5 in Warzone

To unlock Cold War’s MP5 in Warzone, you simply need to reach Level 4. You’ll manage this after only a game or two, so you can essentially use it straight away. Then once you’ve unlocked it, use it as much as you can and take advantage of Double XP events to rank it up fast.

Best Cold War MP5 alternatives in Warzone

The MP5 is best suited for close-range combat, so if you’re looking for alternatives, the MAC-10 and Gallo SA12 are solid choices. They destroy enemies at close-range, which is exactly what you want in a secondary. Of course, there’s always Modern Warfare’s MP5 too.


Use Cold War’s MP5 with these attachments and perks, and you’ll find yourself running one of the best SMGs Warzone has to offer.

Crazy Warzone glitch stops players throwing C4 through broken windows

A bizarre Call of Duty: Warzone bug is making it impossible to throw C4s and explosives out of broken windows.

Warzone player throwing C4 through broken window

A frustrating Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2 glitch is making it impossible for players to throw C4 explosives through windows, even though they’ve been broken before they were thrown.

Warzone remains the most popular battle royale in the world, with players flocking to Verdansk time and time again in search of victories.

Unfortunately, the game is struggling with some major glitches that are having a severe effect on players’ enjoyment. Bugs like the ability to see enemies through walls after competing in the Gulag or a Sniper optic glitch that makes the game unplayable are becoming so common that fans have created the “Fix Warzone” movement.

Unfortunately, fans have discovered another issue that is making combat even harder, with C4s getting stuck to windows even when they are broken.

An explosion going off in Warzone.

Thanks to a clip uploaded to the CoDWarzone subreddit on April 11, we can see that there is something wrong with windows in Season 2, with an invisible barrier stopping the explosive item from being thrown out the window, even though the smashed remnants of the glass can be seen.

User benjigoodson can be seen peaking out of a building in the circular housing estate near Hills, when an enemy appears in the garden and starts firing at them. After some quick thinking, the player pulls out a C4 and lobs it towards the open window, expecting it to fly out, land at the feet of their enemy, and explode.

Unfortunately, the explosive just freezes in mid-air when it reaches where the glass would have been before it was broken, with the explosion knocking benjigoodson down, and leaving him incredibly confused.

As for what caused this issue, nobody is quite sure. One commenter on the post claimed that it seems to be an issue with every window, saying that they were unable to ping items or locations through windows, while another believes this problem is specific to Hills.

Unsurprisingly, fans of the game are clamoring for this to be addressed, as it essentially puts players at a disadvantage even though they have cover as they cannot use any tactical or explosive items to aid them during a fight.

Raven Software have yet to respond to this glitch, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as any new information becomes available.

Warzone leak reveals equippable helmets return to game files

Warzone data miners have reportedly found equippable helmets in the game files again after they were scrapped before the game’s launch.

helmets reportedly found in Warzone game files again

Equippable helmets were found in Warzone’s game files before the game launched in 2020, but data miners claim they have been added back with new voice lines.

Before Warzone launched in 2020, details of a now-scrapped armor system were discovered in the game files. This system included tiers of armor, along with bandages to heal and equippable helmets. This is the way most other battle royale games such as Apex Legends and PUBG handle their health systems, so Warzone was expected to follow suit.

However, that was changed for the more fast-paced system with minimal looting that we all now know. Healing items were replaced with automatic health regeneration and armor tiers were scrapped for the plate system.

Helmets may be making a return with leak reporter VanguardIntel and data miner Nanikos claiming they have returned to the game files. Vanguard said the helmets will have three tiers to them:

  • Lvl 1: Reduces Headshot Damage by 15%
  • Lvl 2: Reduces Headshot Damage by 30%
  • Lvl 3: Reduces Headshot Damage by 30%. Reduces flash and concussion effects

Nanikos posted images of the files detailing these helmets, and said that there were “also operator voice lines for pinging a helmet.”

Many have disputed this leak, saying that the helmets are just leftovers from the original armor system. Vanguard claimed that although the helmet system was originally scrapped, “according to [their] sources it has recently been put back in with new voice lines and such.”

Vanguard also clarified that these helmets will be for Warzone, rather than the abandoned Blackout 2.0 that was leaked on April 5.

While there is no real evidence that these helmets will arrive in Warzone, it’s possible that the leaked 1980s overhaul of Verdansk will bring new mechanics to the game. A plethora of new vehicles have also been found in the files, and they could also arrive in Warzone soon.

New game modes leaked for Warzone Season 2

Warzone leaker ZestyCODLeaks has found three new modes in the game files that could arrive in CoD’s battle royale soon.

New game modes leaked for Warzone

With Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2 well underway, notable leaker ZestyCODLeaks has discovered three new modes that could be arriving in the battle royale soon.

Every Call of Duty game comes with its own set of various game modes for players to seek thrills in, and Warzone isn’t any different. The Season 2 update brought a plethora of new content to enjoy, and it seems that more is on the horizon.

Some new leaks have emerged which point towards the arrival of a few new game modes to the battle royale during an upcoming update. This has led to some speculation among fans about what these will entail.

New game modes leaked for Warzone

These leaks came from Warzone data miner and leaker ZestyCODLeaks, who uncovered three different game modes in the game files. While there currently isn’t a ton of information about, their code names are interesting.

The game modes in the Season 2 Reloaded update game files are:

  • br_gametype_bodycount
  • br_gametype_brz
  • br_satellite_hunt

One of these stood out in particular, as a theory formed about the introduction of another mode with Zombies. “Brz sounds like Normal BR with Zombies in various places like they did in Bo4 with Blackout,” tweeted Firebreak.

While that does sound fairly exciting, the data miner currently has no other information about these game modes, so any hunches about what’s in them will be pure speculation until we learn more.

ZestyCODLeaks also uncovered eight new vehicles in the game files earlier, and the new leaked content might be part of the 1980s overhaul to Verdansk. However, this information should be taken with a grain of salt.

Leaks like these never guarantee that this content will arrive in Warzone, but we’ll keep checking for any further information.
