With a big mag, a quality firing rate and the ever-enchanting blend of damage and mobility, the Bullfrog is as intriguing a Call of Duty: Warzone gun as any. It might not be the meta, but nerfs to other run-and-gun options have helped the versatile SMG become more than viable.
The Black Ops Cold War Bullfrog is a spiritual successor (and tangible improvement) to Modern Warfare PP19 Bizon. With comfortable recoil and large magazine sizes, the submachine gun is more versatile than most — capable of hitting shots at range and downing multiples foes without reloading.
Already a preferred ground loot option, putting together a full Bullfrog loadout can really maximize the gun’s potential. In Verdansk especially, recent nerfs to the FFAR 1 make this SMG an incredibly useful option.
Whether you want the best Bullfrog loadout for Warzone or BOCW multiplayer, the gun can be tweaked to suit any play style. Here are the best classes for the up-and-coming ‘frog.
How to unlock the Bullfrog in Warzone
No frills, no lace, getting the Bullfrog unlocked is a pretty simple endeavor: you either raise your account up to level 43 in Black Ops Cold War or you buy a bundle with the gun in either Warzone or BOCW.
If you do decide to buy a bundle, the Racer 01 Blueprint is your best bet. It’s part of the “Super Charged: Reactive” pack, which comes with the AUG Racer 02 Blueprint and a spinning rim charm, so there’s a bang for your buck.
Most importantly, though, the Racer 01 Blueprint comes equipped with the best Muzzle and Barrel for the Bullfrog, as well as viable Stock and Ammunition options — making it the best Blueprint for the gun around.
Best Bullfrog loadout for Warzone
- Muzzle: Gru Suppressor
- Barrel: 7.4″ Task Force
- Laser: KGB Target Designator
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
- Ammunition: 65 Rnd
- Perk 1: Double Time
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Lethal: Throwing Knife
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
This class is all about maximizing close-range performance while providing unique benefits, that’s why top players like DiazBiffle use it on a regular basis. The FFAR’s ADS (aim-down sight) nerfs have made it harder to use in close quarters, but this Bullfrog class is naturally nasty because its 65 Rnd Mag comes with zero ADS penalty.
Already boasting a faster TTK (time-to-kill) than the other top SMG-style options, the FFAR and the MAC, this Bullfrog’s superiority is exponentially magnified when you factor in ADS time — as demonstrated by TrueGameData’s chart comparison.
As you can see, the Bullfrog’s TTK is unmatched up to about 25 meters and continues to outperform the others at deeper ranges. For reference, if you don’t factor in ADS time at all, the Bullfrog still outperforms the FFAR and MAC-10 up until about 20 meters, at which point the FFAR overtakes it (understandably, as it is technically an assault rifle).
With the Gru Suppressor, 7.4″ Task Force and Spetsnaz Grip, this SMG has an easily controlled recoil bounce and strong damage at range, allowing you the versatility to use it up to medium ranges. That’s why you can afford to pair it with a primary gun like the Kar98k or M16, both of which excel at long range but have limitations at mid-ranges.
The aforementioned Mag and Laser make this Bullfrog nasty at close ranges, with quick ADS, movement speed and hipfire accuracy. Add on the Throwing Knife and you have a loadout that can quickly finish downed enemies without wasting any bullets. (Of course, replace that with the Semtex if you’re anticipating less chaos.)

Black Ops Cold War’s maps offer plenty of opportunities for players to best their opponents in close-quarters combat. This Gunfighter loadout aims to bolster every aspect of the gun, making it more stable and deadly than ever before.

First up is the Microflex LED. This optic offers excellent clarity thanks to its unobtrusive design, while the 1.25x zoom makes it perfect for spotting out close to mid-range targets. The Bullfrog does have some pretty strong vertical recoil, so the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Grip will keep the gun in control, allowing you to lock onto your target.
Even with these attachments, you’ll still need to pull down on your mouse/analog stick to control the bullet spread during mid-range firefights. However, the increased damage range/bullet velocity from the 7.4” Task Force does make it more viable outside of the usual SMG range.
Of course, it’s still often best to avoid any areas that have particularly big sightlines. Instead, focus on flanking and use the Bullfrog’s great mobility to aggressively rush your enemies.
The Steady Aim Laser, KGB Skeletal Stock, and GRU Elastic Wrap allow you to be more reactive in your playstyle. Not only do these speed-enhancing attachments give you increased hip fire accuracy and sprint to fire time, but they also bolster your ADS.
These attachments are the bread and butter of any good SMG class, so you want to use them if you wish to pull off those all-important flanks. Lastly, the VDV 85 RND Fast Mag gives you a huge amount of ammo to melt multiple foes with.
Whether your aim isn’t as accurate as it used to be or you just want to crack that reload habit, then be sure to equip this magazine. Even if you do find yourself constantly reloading after every shot, the Bullfrog’s reload animation is incredibly fast.
There you have it, some dangerous Bullfrog loadouts for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel.
