Best FJX Horus Warzone loadout: Class setup, attachments, perks, more

FJX Horus submachine gun in Call of Duty: Warzone.

The FJX Horus is a fantastic weapon that can dominate even the hardest Warzone lobbies when used with a meta loadout, so it’s only natural that so many players have been using it as of late.

In Warzone’s current meta, the FJX Horus is one of the strongest submachine guns in the game. Going head-to-head with the Superi 46, it offers a superior TTK but has less damage range. This makes it a particularly strong option in Resurgence, where range isn’t nearly as valuable as in regular battle royale.

However, the FJX Horus does have some weaknesses that you’ll need to account for. Most notably, it suffers from quite a lot of horizontal recoil, which can make it difficult to keep on target.

As a result, this meta SMG is a weapon best suited to skilled players who can handle its recoil. Even so, its power is undeniable, and anyone wanting to optimize their loadouts should at least try out the FJX Horus.

The FJX Horus excels up close regardless of what attachments you put on it, but its recoil can be tricky to deal with, even after the buffs back in Season 4. To make the SMG’s recoil more manageable, use the Zehmn35 Compensated Flash Hider.

Equally, the FJX Horus struggles in the damage range department, but the SYN9 Long Barrel mitigates this by boosting range and bullet velocity by 15%. This also produces a slight improvement in recoil control, which is always a useful stat in Warzone.

With any SMG build, you’ll want to maximize mobility where possible, and the FJX Horus is no exception. To do so, the Modus 30 Stock is a great choice, as it improves sprint speed, tactical sprint speed, and other key mobility stats. The best part is that this attachment’s only con is extra flinch resistance, which is a negligible stat on an SMG.

The 60 Round Drum is a must on any FJX Horus loadout, literally doubling its magazine size and making the SMG much more suited to big team modes like Trios and Quads. Finally, a meta optic like the JAK Glassless Optic is highly recommended, as the FJX Horus’ iron sights can block your vision in key moments, while a clear reticle like this has no such problem.

SMGs like the FJX Horus are all about fast-paced gameplay and rushing other teams. If this is your goal, then a combination of Mountaineer and Double Time is perfect, with these perks enhancing movement in a variety of ways.

For Perk 3, the Resupply perk benefits an aggressive playstyle by constantly resupplying your equipment, giving you more tools to win team fights. To best take advantage of this, use a Semtex and Smoke Grenade, as these give a nice balance of damage and utility.

Finally, the Resolute perk is a fantastic way to keep yourself mobile on the battlefield. When being hit, the speed boost this Perk gives you can help you get out of most situations. It’s a great option to keep yourself alive in situations where you may have otherwise been downed.

How to unlock the FJX Horus

The FJX Horus can be unlocked by activating it in the Armory and completing 5 daily challenges. Previously, it was unlocked by completing Sector 8 of the Season 3 Battle Pass, but this option was removed once the season concluded.

Best FJX Horus alternative in Warzone

The HRM-9 is still a dominant SMG in Warzone and one of the strongest alternatives to the FJX Horus. It is a fantastic close-range weapon that has a top-tier TTK, even after it was nerfed multiple times.
