Warzone devs make major Perk changes in Season 2 Reloaded

The MP40’s mobility and damage output make it a great choice for Warzone Pacific players if they can get the best MP40 loadout assembled. We’ve got the best attachments, Perks, and equipment to run with your MP40.

Warzone Pacific’s Season 2 Reloaded update has affected the game’s meta on Caldera with the addition of the new Armaguerra 43 SMG along with some nerfs and buffs to existing weapons.

The altered meta means that players will want to try out different guns, and the MP40 is one of the best Vanguard SMGs available in Warzone Pacific. You can make it even more powerful with the right attachments and Perks.

Here’s how you can make the best MP40 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded.

Best MP40 attachments for Warzone Pacific

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Krausnick 317mm 04B
  • Optical: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Krausnick 33M Folding
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Handstop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 45 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Incendiary
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perks: steady
  • Perks 2: Quick

We’ll start off this Warzone MP40 loadout with the Recoil Booster to increase the fire rate and lower the weapon’s TTK. Tea Krausnick 317mm 04B barrel and M1941 Handstop will improve the range and accuracy.

Tea Polymer Grip provide helps with the MP40’s recoil control so you’ll gain improved accuracy as a result. You can take advantage of this accuracy with the Slate Reflector optical, and the Krausnick 33M Folding stock boosts the weapon’s mobility.

We picked the Incendiary ammo type to make the MP40 much quicker at taking down enemies, and the 7.62 Gorenko 45 Round Mags will ensure that you have plenty of ammo to kill multiple opponents.

Then for Perks, we recommend using steady to boost your movement speed while aiming down sights, and the Quick Perk to get you moving from one gunfight to the next with added movement speed.

Best MP40 Perks and equipment

EOD Perk in Warzone Pacific
  • Perk 1: DOE
  • Perks 2: Overkill
  • Perks 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

Close-range combat often puts you at risk of taking explosive damage from grenades, so we recommend equipping the DOE for some extra protection. Overkill will allow you to pair the MP40 with a long-range weapon for different fights.

Amped will help you quickly swap between your two weapons during intense combat situations. You can use the Throwing Knife to quickly eliminate enemies at close range, and Stims will give you a quick health boost when you need one.

How to unlock the MP40 in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific

MP40 in Call of Duty Vanguard

If you’ve played Vanguard before chances are you’re familiar with the MP40. It’s one of the best Submachine Guns and it is available as soon as you unlock Custom Loadouts at Rank 4.

Due to its popularity, many players will have significant attachments unlocked. If this isn’t the case you may want to consider using a double weapon XP token or playing in the next Double XP event.

Best Warzone Pacific alternatives to MP40

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the Warzone MP40 then the Welgun and OTs are effective choices. The PPSH-41 is also a viable pick with the right attachments to keep the recoil in check.

The Kar98k is a safe bet if you’re interested in a long-range weapon. What’s more, it pairs perfectly with the MP40 if you want to use the SMG as a sniper support weapon.
