What is up guys? Patriots here from RealGamersTV, and today I'm going to be showing you the top three SMGs in Call of Duty: Black Ops. There are nine SMGs in Call of Duty: Black Ops, The MP5K, the Scorpion, the MAC11, the AK74u, the Uzi, the PM63, the MPL, the Spectre and the Kiplaris.

Number three on my list of SMGs is the MP5K. The MP5K is unlocked from the very beginning and one of the default classes. It kills in three shots up close and five at a distance. It's regular magazine holds 30 shots while the extended mag hold 45. The MP5K reloads in 2.9 seconds with ammo left in the mag and 3.2 when the mag is empty. The attachment I would recommend for this weapon is the previously mentioned extended mag and keep the suppressor off of this weapon because the damage in range reduction really hurts its usability. I would also not use any sights on the weapon, but if you were to choose one, the red dot is best for most long-range and close engagement. But as with most SMGs, the gun is best up close and is really hurt by its accuracy at a distance.

Number two on my list of SMGs is the MPL. The MPL is unlocked at level 35, and it kills in four shots up close and five at a distance which is why I recommend the Rapid Fire attachment. Pairing Rapid Fire with either the Suppressor or Grip using the Warlord perk makes two very deadly combinations. No sight is needed on this weapon, and as the need for Rapid Fire is so important, I recommend getting used to its Iron [SP] sights. The MPL reloads in 2.25 seconds with ammo left in the mag and 3 seconds when empty. It has outstanding accuracy, but because of its low damage, I still suggest avoiding long-range gun fights if at all possible.

Number one on my list of SMGs is the godly AK74u which might be referred to as simply the 74u. Unlocked at level 17, it is by far the most powerful of the SMGs. It kills in three shots up close and five at a distance according to its stats, but when in battle, its fire rate makes it unstoppable. The gun reloads at 2.1 seconds with ammo still left in the mag and at 2.8 when empty. As for attachments, there are a ton of choices. The two best and most popular are the Grip and Rapid Fire. Separate they are great, but when paired together using Warlord, they turn this gun into a monster. Extended Mag and Suppressor are not bad choices either if they fit your needs. As for sights on this weapon, because Rapid Fire and Grip can have such a giant affect, I suggest avoiding them. Of all the SMGs, this is the one I'd recommend for long-range shooting, so don't back down from any gun fight.

Of the nine SMGs in Call of Duty: Black Ops, these are the three I'd recommend for any battle. This has been Patriots from RealGamersTV, and I'll see you all later.
