For starters, the GRU Suppressor boosts your Max Range to near pre-nerf status with a 10% boost. Similar can be said for the 9.3″ VDV Reinforced Barrel which also comes with a hefty increase to Bullet Velocity as well.

With these two attachments, you’ll have a slightly slower setup, but one that almost reverts the SMG back to its firepower before the latest nerfs.

Meanwhile, the typical selection of Stock, Underbarrel, and Ammunition will keep you on par with other ideal loadouts.

Additionally, you can’t go wrong with the standard Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor to round out your equipment.
