The Bruen Mk9 is one of the strongest Light Machine Guns in Warzone Pacific that can easily help you win gunfights from just about any range. To help get the most out of this lethal weapon, we’ve got you covered with the best Bruen Mk9 loadout, along with Perks and attachments.

While Assault Rifles and Submachine Guns have been the go-to weapons for many seasons in Warzone, you can never truly count LMGs out. Even though the Bruen is not as effective as it once was, you can still find some measure of success with it in the game.

Bruen Mk9 in Modern Warfare Gunsmith


  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Summit 26.8”
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mags

First and foremost, it’s vital that you combine the Monolithic Suppressor and XRK Summit 26.8” barrel. Both of these attachments will boost your Bullet Velocity by a total of 50%, helping you beam targets up close and afar.

The second you pull the trigger, you’ll feel your shots landing much faster than usual. The VLK 3.0x Optic, a popular pick for any LMG setup, perfectly compliments these attachments. Not only will this attachment keep you fast on your feet, but it allows you to engage in gunfights from across the map with accuracy and precision.

With the Commando Foregrip underbarrel in effect as well, you won’t have to worry about outrageous recoil. Vertical spray patterns will be kept in check, helping you laser down foes in a matter of moments.

Last but not least, no LMG would be fit without a magazine upgrade. While you can equip a 200 Round Belt on the Bruen, we recommend the 60 Round Mags instead. This adds to your mobility, keeps you in control, and also aids you in the action rather than forcing you to hide and reload.

Best Bruen Mk9 setup (Perks & equipment)

The Bruen is a perfect fit with any top-tier Warzone SMG as a secondary.
  • Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: OTs 9
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Plenty of players are still running Combat Scout in 2022, so it’s best that you have Cold-Blooded to counter it. It’ll stop you from being pinged when hit by someone with Combat Scout equipped, and is invaluable to have.

Meanwhile, Amped and Overkill combine to give you a powerful secondary weapon. When the Bruen runs dry or you simply find yourself in a close-range fight, these Perks let you swap to an SMG and instantly engage with anyone nearby.

How to unlock the Bruen Mk9 in Warzone

Bruen Mk9 WarzoneActivision
Unlocking the Bruen requires you to kill enemies in smoke.

In order to unlock the Bruen Mk9 in Warzone, you need to kill 3 players near smoke with an LMG in 15 different matches. While it may sound like your target needs to be near smoke, that’s not actually the case.

Instead, you can be the one standing inside a Smoke Grenade while shooting out of it. Therefore, equipping a Thermal Smoke and dropping your own Smoke Grenades at your feet is the easiest way to get this done.

You’ll be able to spot enemies through your smoke and quickly wipe them out. Drop into a few quick games of plunder to smash through this challenge as efficiently as possible.

Alternative to the Bruen Mk9 loadout

We understand that many players are maining either the Bren, MG42, or Bruen as their LMG of choice. So if you fancy moving away from an LMG, then you can’t go wrong with some tried and tested ARs and SMGs.

The STG is always a beastly option to use in Caldera, and you could even pair it up with something deadly like the PPSH-41, MP40, or MAC-10.
