The BAS-P has received another round of buffs in the Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded update transforming it into a solid SMG. Here’s our best BAS-P Warzone 2 meta loadout to help you draw the guns full potential.

Introduced back in Season 1, the BAS-P started out life as a weak SMG that not many players used. Despite its low recoil Warzone 2’s rendition of the real-world SIG-Sauer MPX just didn’t deal enough damage to be worth utilizing.

In Season 2 Reloaded it received a buff to its sprint to fire time and damage ranges making it an okay option. Then at the start of Season 3, the BAS-P was buffed again seeing its damage ranges further enhanced and its strafe speed increased. And now it has been buffed once again in Season 3 Reloaded.

With these latest buffs, the BAS-P has turned into a monster that shreds across all ranges. Here’s the best loadout for the BAS-P, including the attachments, Perks, and equipment to use.


Best BAS-P Warzone 2 loadout


  • Muzzle: XTEN RR-40
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Stock: Ravage-8
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum
  • Rear Grip: D37 Grip

Even without attachments, the BAS-P is a superb close-range SMG but reducing its recoil helps extend its range making it competitive from further away.

To do this we use a combination of the XTEN RR-40 muzzle, Ravage-10 stock, and D-37 Grip. When used in unison these three attachments massively reduce recoil without slowing down our ADS too much.

The BAS-P doesn’t have the best ironsight system so it’s recommended to grab the Cronen Mini Pro as it comes in handy for both close and medium range firefights.

Finally, the 50 Round Drum is a must as it makes it possible to down multiple enemies before having to reload. Without this attachment, you’ll be constantly reloading which can get you caught out during gunfights.

Best BAS-P Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Resupply
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

This loadout is all about repositioning quickly without being downed by other teams. The best perk for this playstyle is Double Time as it lets you move around Al Mazrah faster and increases crouch movement speed.

Overkill is a fantastic choice too as the BAS-P can struggle at long range due to its damage falloff. You’ll need a suitable secondary weapon to cover its weaknesses like an assault rifle or sniper.

The best Bonus Perk is Resupply as it refreshes our equipment. The equipment selected in this loadout is essential for repositioning safely so having it always available is ideal. For the Ultimate Perk, it’s recommended to use High Alert so that when moving around you can react to enemies aiming at you.

For equipment, we opt for a Throwing Knife and Smoke Grenade. Throwing Knives let us instantly kill downed enemies without having to waste ammo whilst Smoke Grenades are the best tool in Warzone 2 to reposition safely across open areas.

How to unlock the BAS-P in Warzone 2

The BAS-P can be unlocked by getting 25 headshot kills with SMGs or successfully exfilling with any BAS-P blueprint in DMZ.

It was originally available through the Season 1 battle pass but is now unlocked through a simple gameplay challenge instead.

Best BAS-P alternatives in Warzone 2

Much like the BAS-P, the PDSW 528 excels at close range. The PDSW 528 offers superior mobility which is great for aggressive playstyles and flushing teams out of buildings.

Alternatively, the once-meta Fennec 45 is still an incredible SMG when used at close range. It’s a little harder to control than the BAS-P but has a fast TTK and amazing mobility.
