Best SMGs In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Ranked

The submachine gun (SMG) should always find a place in your loadout, no matter which first-person shooter (FPS) you’re playing. They’re small, agile, and can do as much damage as the more massive weapons you can use. Additionally, in a small enclosed space, they’re a lot easier to use than swinging an assault rifle around, hoping that you can level it before someone blows your head off.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has its fair share of SMGs in its armory, and though all of them are useful in unique ways, some are just more useful than others. If you’re wondering which one you should turn to in the heart of a warzone, then this guide is going to attempt to help you out.

PP19 Bizon

PP19 BIZON

It may have the ability to hold as much ammo as you can carry in one single clip, but the PP19 Bizon lacks any punch, and you’d be better off just throwing this weapon at your enemy, instead of trying to kill them with it. It is that useless.

MP7

MP7

The horrible recoil on the MP7 means you don’t have much use for this weapon outside of close-quarters combat. If you find yourself trapped in a building with other players trying to swarm you, then this can get you out of a jam very nicely. But anything with a greater distance than, say, your bedroom isn’t going to be worried about the MP7 one little bit.

MP5

MP5

It might seem strange to see an earlier version of the MP series rank higher than a newer one, but the fact the MP5 will always outplay the MP7. The older model might not kick out the lead as quickly as the unique model, but it has a much better damage rate going for it, which means it’s a lot better equipped to handle all sorts of terrain.

AUG

AUG

The AUG is as close to an assault rifle as you can get in an SMG. It’s got the same fire capability as its bigger brother’s/sister’s, and it’s pretty handy when it comes to causing a ton of damage. Still, the main reason to equip the AUG is the fact that its super easy to aim which means that its accuracy is second to none in this department.

UZI

UZI

Whatever you do with the UZI, don’t try to use this for anything other than close to medium range combat, or you’re going to look pretty foolish when someone is mooning your corpse. If you adhere to this simple rule, then the UZI can quickly become your best friend in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as it has an incredible fire rate and packs enough of a wallop to take out even veteran players. Though if you do, you’ll end up regretting it when they spend the rest of the match hunting you down relentlessly.

P90

P90

The P90 is easily the best SMG in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It packs a lot of ammo into a mag, is very easy to aim, is light and agile, and will cause an immense amount of damage when fired. There isn’t a bad side to the P90 as if the recoil is so minimal that you’ll hardly notice it. One for everybody who plays the game.
