Best weapons to pair with the MP5 in MW2 

So you already have the MP5 and you’re seeking reliable weapons to pair it with? Below we’ve listed the best guns to pair with the MP5 in Modern Warfare 2

Signal 50 Sniper Rifle

While the MP5 is an incredibly accurate tool, its damage potential still falls off somewhat at long ranges. If you want a weapon that can cover any distance and deal overwhelming one-shot damage, the Signal 50 is exactly what you need. Modern Warfare 2’s first Sniper Rifle is the best choice for popping heads at ranges that the MP5 struggles with.

X13 Auto Handgun

The MP5 works so well in almost every area that focusing too much on a secondary main weapon can feel redundant. It is entirely valid to pass up Overkill and choose basic perks that will more fully benefit the MP5, in which case the X13 serves fine as a last-resort alternative.
