The new LAPA SMG has arrived in Warzone, giving players another lethal close-quarter weapon to use, but what loadout maximizes the gun’s damage?

The Haunting of Verdansk kicked off in Warzone on October 19, officially marking the beginning of the spooky season and introducing a variety of new content to the game.

While players are enjoying the scary additions that have arrived with the Halloween event, it’s the new LAPA SMG that’s getting the most attention from the community.

This versatile SMG is capable of performing at close-quarters as well medium-range, making it slightly different from the MAC-10 and PPSh.


However, in order to get the most out of the weapon, you’ll need a top-tier loadout and luckily, we’ve got you covered.


Best LAPA loadout for Warzone

The LAPA SMG arrived with the Warzone Halloween event.


  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Ammunition: Salvo 45 Round Fast Mag
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock

First of all, you’ll want to equip the Agency Suppressor for increased bullet velocity, effective damage range, and vertical recoil control. Not only that, but the attachment will keep your gunfire off the radar, which is incredibly important in Warzone when attempting to keep your position concealed.

After that, pick up the SAS Combat Stock to boost the overall mobility of the weapon and utilize the Salvo 45 Round Fast Mag so you can spend less time reloading, and more time taking out your opponents.


Next, use the Tiger Team Spotlight to increase your mobility even further and boost your aim walking movement speed. This will allow you to pursue retreating enemies and push posted-up squads aggressively.

Finally, round off the loadout with the Microflex LED optic attachment, as hitting multiplier damage with LAPA is absolutely key. The new SMG deals massive headshot and neck shot damage but falls off when it comes to the body, so it’s important you’re always aiming in exactly the right place.

Best LAPA setup (Perks & equipment)

Perks and Equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Kar98k
  • Lethal: Grenade
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

When it comes to perks, you’ll want to run Amped to decrease your weapon swap speed and E.O.D to decrease the amount of damage you take from non-killstreak explosives.


Finally, it’s important you run the Overkill perk as the LAPA SMG will struggle to take out enemies at long range, so running the Kar98k will allow you to weaken enemies before an aggressive push with your squad.

Round off the equipment with a standard Grenade to flush camping opponents out of buildings, and the Heartbeat Sensor to track any opponents not using Ghost.

How to unlock the LAPA in Warzone

Alternative LAPA Warzone loadout

PPSh Warzone loadout
The PPSh has an incredibly high Damage Per Mag.

If you’re looking for an alternative loadout to the LAPA SMG, check out our PPSh setup, which is perfect for any hyper-aggressive players who enjoy pushing enemy squads.

With a huge amount of mobility and lethal damage potential at close range, there are very guns that will outmatch this weapon in a high-pressure situation.

Just make sure you’re landing your shots and attempting to weaken your opponents before closing in on their position, this will increase your chances of winning the gunfight.
