Here basically you take a gun, play with it and level it up. The goal is to keep leveling it up until you unlock its receiver that lets you unlock the next weapon on the platform. So here is how you can get the MP5.

  1. Start by playing with the Lachmann-762 and level it up to rank 13. This will give you its receiver and unlock Lachmann-556.
  2. Next, repeat the process of leveling up but this time use the Lachmann-556 instead. Now level it up to rank 12.
  3. This will unlock the MP5 which is also commonly known as the Lachmann Sub gun.

Tips for Getting MP5 Faster

  • Since the unlocking procedure requires you to level up the gun. You can speed up the process by only using that weapon, instead frequently switching between other weapons.
  • Remember you can share the gun modifications between the weapons of the same platform. So if you are having trouble let’s say leveling up Lachmann-556, then make sure you use the modifications you are used to and the ones that work with it. This can make playing with the gun better or maybe even more fun for you.
  • Lastly, make sure you switch to the new weapon once it unlocks. So after you unlock the Lachmann-556 make sure you start using it and aren’t leveling up the Lachmann-762.
