Best Cooper Carbine Warzone loadout

The Cooper Carbine is one of the most popular ARs in Warzone Season 5.


  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: 22” Cooper Custom
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Cooper 45RS
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 9mm 60 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The best Cooper Carbine Warzone loadout boosts the gun’s fire rate and accuracy, which allows it to compete against the very best weapons in the game.

First up is the MX Silencer, which helps keep the recoil in check, at the cost of some damage. Don’t worry though, the 22″ Cooper Custom barrel balances things out by upping the damage again.

To allow the Cooper Carbine to perform at long range, we’ve utilized attachments that greatly improve its accuracy and the fire rate to get more bang for your buck. The Cooper 45RS, m1941 Hand Stop, and Polymer Grip all help make the Cooper Carbine as sharp as possible.

Next up are the 9mm 60 Rnd Drums and Lengthened Rounds. The magazine features increased recoil control, fire rate, ADS speed, and plenty of ammo to down multiple enemies. Meanwhile, the ammo type simply bolsters the Cooper Carbine’s bullet velocity turning it into more of a frying laser.

Combine these attachments with the Fully Loaded and Tight Grip perks, and you have a recipe for an incredibly lethal loadout.

Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Armaguerra 43
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

Our Cooper Carbine Warzone loadout utilizes all the standard meta perks. Both E.O.D and Amped keep you safe from any explosive blasts, while also giving increased speed when swapping to your secondary weapon, which we’ll touch on soon.

Overkill also enables you to carry another primary weapon of your choice and this is incredibly important considering this loadout is tailored around long-range firefights.

So we recommend taking a close-range SMG or Shotgun, like the Gallo, to help with close-quarter engagements. The Armaguerra 43, H4 Blixen, and MP40 are strong options in the current meta.

Lastly, both the Semtex and Stim will give you the tools needed to flush out pesky campers and the ability to quickly heal yourself when you take damage or even use it as a clever way to evade the clutches of the deadly gas.

Best Cooper Carbine loadout Warzone tips

The Cooper Carbine comes equipped with an insanely fast fire rate, making it extremely effective at long range. Our loadout simply aims to accentuate its already existing strengths.

If you wish to get more kills while using this weapon, then here are some tips you should be utilizing in-game:

  • This loadout is geared around being fast and aggressive, so once you’ve got this class in your loadout drop, be sure to secure another drop to get the Ghost perk. This will allow you to flank and be aggressive while going unrecognized by enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.
  • Finally, pair this weapon with Sniper Rifle if you wish to be effective at all ranges. The Cooper Carbine can hold its own at range, but even the best Assault Rifles are useless when the distance between you and your target becomes too large. Using the GorenkoAX-50, ZRG 20mm or 3-Line Rifle will make this a well-rounded loadout.
