In Call of Duty: Warzone 2, the current top dog in the submachine gun class is the Fennec 45. This SMG is a terrifying presence on the map, especially at close range, thanks to its extremely high rate of fire, low recoil, and solid damage. However, the Fennec 45 was just nerfed in Season 2, and those looking to try out other weapons can easily look elsewhere in the SMG category. Players can start with the Vaznev-9K, which is one of the better submachine guns in Warzone 2 — especially with its best loadout equipped.
The Vaznev-9K is currently one of, if not the best, SMGs in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. It’s the meta choice for professional players in competitive play, featuring little recoil and great damage range. However, it doesn’t quite have the Fennec 45’s fire rate, which has kept some players from using it consistently in Warzone 2. While we can’t increase the Vaznev’s fire rate, we can boost other stats with some key attachments. Those stat increases, paired with the nerf to the Fennec, might just make the Vaznev-9K a meta pick in Season 2.
To see the full loadout for the Vaznev-9K in Warzone 2, keep reading below.
Best Vaznev-9K loadout in Warzone 2
- Muzzle: Bruen Pendulum
- Stock: Otrezat Stock
- Magazine: 45 Round Mag
- Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
- Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip
Aside from the optic and the magazine, every attachment on this loadout is focused on recoil in some way. The Bruen Pendulum increases it both horizontally and vertically while the FSS Sharkfin 90 helps with aiming stability. For mobility, we have equipped the Otrezat Stock and the True-Tac Grip. Both of these attachments increase aim down sights time and sprint-to-fire speed. Finally, the 45 Round magazine gives players enough bullets to last in a multi-enemy gunfight without having to reload.
The Vaznev-9K and the Fennec 45 are much closer than they were in Season 1, and the former just might be stronger at this point in Season 2.
