The best Submachine gun in Modern Warfare 2 is an ongoing debate within the Call Of Duty community. The Lachmann Sub and the FSS Hurricane are strong contenders as they perform exceptionally well up close. However, players should also consider running the Minbak Submachine Gun, which is considerably harder to unlock than most other weapons.
The base Minibak SMG is not exactly promising. It has a slow aim-down sight speed, an exceptionally low-bullet velocity, and a slow fire rate compared to other weapons of its type. However, the gun does possess a large magazine, and its many flaws can easily be fixed with the right attachments. In this guide, you will learn how to unlock the Minibak and the best attachments that make this gun a formidable weapon for close-range gunfights.
Unlocking The Minibak In Modern Warfare 2
The Minibak cannot be unlocked through the traditional means of reaching a certain rank within Modern Warfare 2. Obtaining this weapon will also require a bit of grinding, as it is the final weapon belonging to the Kastov 762 Weapon Platform. First and foremost, players will need to unlock the Kastov 762 Assault Rifle, which is available upon reaching Level 23. Next, you will need to progress this modern AK variant to Weapon Level 10 to be given access to the Kastov 545.
After unlocking the Kastov 545, go ahead and reach Weapon Level 13 with it to obtain the Kastov-74U. All that is left now is to level up the Kastov-74U to Weapon Level 18, and you will finally receive the Minibak. In the game, it actually says that leveling up the Vaznev-9k to level 14 will unlock the Minibak, but this is actually false. Instead, you will be given the KAS-1 381MM barrel attachment. Progressing through the weapon progression system in Modern Warfare is a fairly simple task because most in-game actions that award regular XP should also award you Weapon XP. However, the fastest and most surefire way to gain substantial Weapon XP is through gaining eliminations with the gun you wish to rank up.
The Best Attachments For The Minibak
|XTEN RR-40 (Muzzle)||
|FSS OLE-V LASER (Laser)||
|TRUE-TAC GRIP (Rear Grip)||
|MINIBAK GRIP MAG (Magazine)||
|MARKEEV R7 STOCK (Stock)||
These attachments will improve the effective damage range, accuracy, mobility, and handling of the base Minibak at the cost of a tiny amount of recoil control. We have chosen attachments like the XTEN RR-40 muzzle to improve the range of the weapon whilst also suppressing your shots to keep you off the mini-map at all times.
We have also chosen the MINIBAK GRIP MAG magazine attachment, and although it won't offer you any more additional rounds, it will improve your recoil stabilization substantially. Lastly, we have picked attachments like the FSS OLE-V LASER, TRUE-TAC GRIP, and the MARKEEV R7 STOCK to drastically improve the aim-down sight and sprint-to-fire speed of the weapon. It not only makes the gun fast and deadly but also compensates for the ADS reduction brought on by the MINIBAK GRIP MAG.
Looking to run an optic on this gun? Then go ahead and swap out the MINIBAK GRIP MAG for one of the first few optics available. This way, the gun won't suffer from a great reduction in aim-down sight speed. However, doing so will mean that your recoil and aiming idle stability will take a hit.
The Minibak is a great weapon on its own and will do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to gunfights. Pair this with the fact that you will be running Scavenger as a perk, and you'll find that there is no need to carry a swap-to secondary. Therefore, consider utilizing a launcher like the PILA to take down enemy killstreaks. This way, your teammates will be able to call in killstreaks sooner, and they won't have to worry about getting revealed on the mini-map by enemy UAVs.
|Base Perks||Bonus Perk (Earned in Match)||Ultimate Perk (Earned in Match)|
|Scavenger & Tracker||Fast Hands||Ghost|
Mobility is pretty much covered for this class, eliminating the need for Double Time as a base perk. Our first suggestion is to utilize Tracker, which plays into the stealth aspect of this class setup. Tracker not only reveals enemy footprints and makes them easier to track but also hides your own kill markers from the enemy.
Next, go ahead and equip Scavenger to resupply ammo for your gun. This frees your Field Upgrade slot from the Munitions Box, allowing you to run something more desirable.
Your Bonus Perk should definitely be Fast Hands, allowing you to quickly pop a reload at a fraction of the speed. Lastly, go ahead and equip Ghost. Because you are running a suppressor on your weapon, it seems pretty counter-productive to be revealed on the mini-map whilst enemy UAVs are active. Therefore, Ghost will keep your stealth high, allowing you to get the jump on unsuspecting opponents.
