Editor’s Note: A lawsuit has been filed against Activision Blizzard by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, which alleges the company has engaged in abuse, discrimination, and retaliation against its female employees. Activision Blizzard has denied the allegations. The full details of the Activision Blizzard lawsuit (content warning: rape, suicide, abuse, harassment) are being updated as new information becomes available.
The MP40 is a high-quality SMG in Warzone Pacific that works best in close-combat situations. With the ability to empty a clip faster than any kind of weapon, attachments focusing on its accuracy and damage are a must. Fortunately, the MP40 is a weapon Warzone players can unlock fairly early. Even with an entirely new battle pass full of new weapons, cosmetics, and characters, the MP40 remains a popular choice in the metagame. It’s important to mention that Warzone receives balance patches often. As a result, certain weapons can be deemed useless overnight.
To unlock the MP40, players will need to reach level 4. On the bright side, Warzone continues the heavy integration with the newest mainline title. That applies to Call of Duty Vanguard players, which means players who unlock the MP40 in one game will also have it available in the titles. Fortunately, it should only take maybe an hour or two to reach this level. There are many different ways to level up fast in Warzone for those players looking to upgrade their MP40 as quickly as possible. The weapon progression also carries over between both titles. It’s helpful to alternate between the two to prevent burnout of a single mode.
After unlocking the MP40, each attachment will also need to be unlocked individually. Each weapon has a leveling system that is separate from the battle pass. Regardless, leveling it up still requires players to use the MP40 in battles, get kills, and complete challenges with the weapon. To get the most out of the MP40, players should aim to have at least 10 item slots ready. Certain tiers on the battle pass will give players extra XP items. This includes Warzone’s Double XP Tokens that can be used for either the player’s rank or weapons. These are the best MP40 attachments to use.
The Best MP40 Loadout in Warzone
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster – Improves accuracy.
- Barrel: VDD 189mm Short – Increases the weapon’s damage output and speed.
- Optic: Krausnick ISO 1M
- Stock: Krausnick 33M Folding – Increases the weapon’s damage output and speed.
- Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip – Further improves accuracy.
- Magazine: 9mm 64 Round Drum
- Ammo Type: Lengthened – Increases bullet velocity, allowing for higher damage from longer distances.
- Rear Grip: Fabric Grip – Increases the weapon’s damage output and speed.
- Perk: Brace – Increases the accuracy of the first few shots.
- Perk 2: Quick – Increases movement speed.
Since the MP40 lacks range, players should use the Overkill perk. This allows players to carry two primary weapons at a time. Combining this perk with one of the best snipers in Warzone will deal with the range issue. Using Amped and Double Time as the other two perks will make the player even faster. This class works well for players who enjoy spraying and praying. It struggles with long-range fights but makes up for it by taking down enemies within a few shots.
Warzone is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC.
