Ever since it was introduced the HRM-9 has been top-tier and that is continuing with Season 3. Here is the best HRM-9 loadout to use in Warzone to dominate close-range engagements.

When the HRM-9 was first introduced as part of the Season 1 Reloaded update, the gun quickly ascended the ranks of popularity, becoming many players’ top choice for the battlefield.

That has largely remained true and is carrying on in Season 3, where the weapon is staying at the top of the popular options.

With that said, here is the best HRM-9 loadout to use in Warzone and outgun the opposition over and over with this incredible SMG.


Best HRM-9 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: ZEHMN Compensated Flash Hider
  • Underbarrel: XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop
  • Stock: Folding Stock
  • Ammunition: 9MM High Grain Rounds
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

Being an SMG, using the HRM-9 should be all about speed and getting your shots off as easily as possible. So having attachments like the ZEHMN Compensated Flash Hider and Folding Stock are going to give you increased ADS speed and reduce both vertical and horizontal recoil.

In addition to that, the XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop will provide you with an increased movement speed to get around the battlefield much easier. There will be a slight hit to ADS Speed, but this will be made up for by other attachments.

Using the 50 Round Drum will provide more rounds per clip, and also boost the ADS Speed even further, and this will be done with 9MM High Grain Rounds that will bump up your damage range and bullet velocity.

HRM-9 Warzone Loadout: Perks and Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
    • increases Tac Sprint duration
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
    • reload faster
  • Perk 3: Quick Fix
    • inserting a plate or killing another player will trigger health regeneration
  • Perk 4: Resolute
    • move faster when hit by enemy shot
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

The use of Double Time is going to help with the mobility of this loadout, as it allows you to sprint faster, and for longer. You can use this to get around the battlefield and get proper positioning on your enemies when you need to, while also allowing you to escape the gas quicker.

And being a mobile character, you will surely take some damage be it from other players or the environment, which is why Fast Hands and Quick Fix are on this list. The former will give you the chance to reload and get yourself resituated quicker, while the latter is going to keep you alive.

Finally, Resolute keeps you alive by giving you a chance to reach cover when hit by enemy fire.

How to unlock HRM-9 in Warzone

The HRM-9 can be unlocked through the Armory by activating the SMG and then completing 3 Daily Challenges. Before Season 2, it was instead unlocked by completing Sector A21 of the Season 1 Battle Pass.

Alternatively, you can find and extract it in Zombies to instantly unlock it.

Best alternative to HRM-9 in Warzone

The Striker 9 shares a lot in common with the HRM-9 with both being mobile SMGs that are best suited to close-range engagements but still perform well at medium-range where other submachine guns generally struggle to compete.
