Best Fennec Warzone class loadout: Attachments, Perks, Setup

Activision / Infinity Ward

Call of Duty‘s Fennec may not be the go-to SMG in Warzone, but it can still pump out some serious damage. Here is the best Fennec loadout you should be using to get a competitive edge in Warzone Pacific Season 1. 

The Fennec, a recreation of the Vector from previous CoD games, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2.

Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, great mobility, and an insanely fast rate of fire, the Fennec is a beast of a gun. In fact, it’s so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye.

The Warzone meta has changed a lot in light of recent updates, and the Fennec luckily received a buff to its bullet velocity in Season 5. If you enjoy gliding across Verdansk with an SMG, the Fennec could be a great off-meta option to strike down your opponents with speed and precision.


How to unlock the Fennec in Warzone

The Fennec doesn’t take long to unlock with this method.

In order to unlock the Fennec in Warzone, you must get 5 kills while using an SMG with the Solozero Optics Mini Reflex and Ranger Foregrip in 10 different matches. Due to this challenge requiring SMG kills, we recommend loading up a game of Plunder.

Once you’ve loaded into the match, simply hot drop onto players and begin taking them down with your SMG. As soon as you have claimed the 5 kills, quit out of the match and rinse and repeat until you have completed the challenge.

Best Fennec loadout in Warzone

Boost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.


  • Barrel: ZLR18” Deadfall
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Ammunition: 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s Verdansk ’84 map may favor long- to medium-range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s recoil control, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added coverage.

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only bolsters your effective damage range, but it also increases your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision the Fennec needs when going for those all-important shots.

While this attachment does increase your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

If you desire even more mobility, you can sacrifice the Stippled Grip Tape and run a Fennec loadout more similar to Aydan’s. Either way, you should be able to find success with any of these loadouts!

The Fennec was introduced in the Season 4 Update.

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Tac Laser. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, but they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed, giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Be warned, though, as the fire rate is incredibly fast. If you’re playing Trios or Quads, this could be a risky gun to use.

Best Fennec setup (Perks & equipment)

Fennec WarzoneActivision
This Fennec setup is incredibly lethal.


  • Perk 1: EOD
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped


  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
  • Secondary: MG82

This Fennec loadout uses EOD to stave off any explosive damage, while Amped enables you quickly swap to your MG82 in mid to long-range gunfights. These perks are found on almost all of our meta loadouts, especially since they increase your overall survivability.

The Overkill perk enables the use of another primary weapon, making it a great choice if you wish to utilize Warzone’s best Assault rifles (or LMGs). Lastly, both the Throwing Knife and Heartbeat Sensor give you the tools needed to hunt enemy players and finish downs without wasting bullets.

Best Fennec loadout Warzone tips

The Fennec may not be the most popular SMG in Warzone, but it is known for its fast fire rate and TTK at close ranges. As a result, this loadout aims to accentuate this weapon’s already existing strengths.

If you want to take full of advantage of this Fennec loadout, then these tips should be helpful:

  • As previously stated, this SMG shines in close-ranged gunfights. As a result, you’ll want to pair it with a sniper rifle or an assault rifle to cover all bases. We recommend using the Swiss K3 as your sniper pick, or the STG44 if you decide to choose an assault rifle.
  • Due to the Fennec’s fast fire rate, you can often burn through your magazine without recognizing. Try your best to conserve ammo by only engaging in gunfights that are within the Fennec’s optimal range.
  • The Heartbeat Sensor tactical is great for locating enemies that are in close proximity. If you suspect an enemy is nearby, use this equipment to pinpoint their exact location and let the Fennec do the rest.
