Redditor claims that MP5 is the meta weapon in Call of Duty: Warzone

Reddit user u/ItsCinematicc discovered a surprising fact about Modern Warfare’s MP5. This fantastic SMG still excels at close-range fights and offers a high rate of fire with amazing hip-fire accuracy. It makes it one of the better weapons that exists in the game and the community has been ignoring it for a long time. The weapon never got overshadowed by BOCW weaponry and held its own in the close-range encounters.

The low recoil and easy to control recoil coupled with a splendid rate of fire makes it a great secondary weapon. If you have been ignoring this weapon, then the below clip will definitely change your mind about the game. The Reddit user found himself in a tricky situation, where a team of 4 players was rushing his location.

The circle closing in and the entire team of enemies rushing him on the rooftops. He had no other choice but to fight and MP5 did not disappoint him one bit, as it shreds through enemy armor rather easily.
