This MP5A2 Loadout focuses on increasing the mobility of the Submachine Gun, making it deadly in close range gunfights and perfect for objective game modes. We start the loadout by using the Superlight Front Rail and Lightweight Barrel, these attachments increase the Aim Down Sights Speed and Movement speed, making you extremely quick around the map.

The Quick Mag increases reload speed, meaning you can engage in another gunfight right away. While the Lightweight Rear Grip and Padded Stock add some much needed stability to the MP5A2 by increasing recoil control and adding aim down sights stability.

We recommend the 686 Magnum for your Secondary weapon due to its sheer deadliness at close range, and the Frag Grenade for your equipment to help when clearing objectives.
