The SMG so good it was nerfed in MW2 right out of the gate. While it’s no longer the overwhelmingly superior choice that it once was, the Lachmann Sub is still a fantastic weapon pick, and it is set to be as dominant in Warzone 2 as it was in MW2. With an insane TTK at mid-close range, all the Lachmann Sub needs to excel the ability to close with your opponent.

SMGs are at their best in MW2 when you can find a way to force opponents into close-up firefights, and the trend is continuing in Warzone 2. But sprinting across an open field is an easy way to get yourself picked off by an eagle-eyed marksman. Getting into effective SMG range often requires employing careful positioning and movement strategies.  

The inherent stealth offered by the Fennec makes it a great tool for surprising opponents and catching them off-guard, and its damage once you do so is no slouch either.
