The Milano 821 SMG has started to stand out from the pack during the Black Ops Cold War beta. So, we’ve got a few classes you can use once it starts back up again. 

As we creep ever closer to the release of Black Ops Cold War, CoD fans have had their chance to get involved with early access through the Alpha and Beta. 


In the Alpha, weapons like the XM4 and AK74U immediately stood out – especially in the hands of Call of Duty League pros. In the Beta, however, other weapons have got their moment in the spotlight.

The Milano, otherwise known as the Uzi, has been making a case to be known as the best SMG around. So, if you want to rock it like the pros do, we’ve got a few helpful set-ups that should help when the Beta starts back up again.

Close-quarters loadout for Milano 821

This first set up is perhaps better suited to objective game modes or when you want to really get up close and personal with an enemy.

Equipping the steady aim laser as the body, with the Foregrip as the underbarrel, and the Impact Handle as the handle will give you better control in tight situations. The Tactical Stock also helps on top of that. 

The 8.8 Extended barrel will help the weapon’s muzzle speed. This is the sort of setup that you can rip through unsuspecting enemies with if you manage to hit a well-timed flank. 

  • Barrel: 8.8 Extended 
  • Body: Steady aim laser
  • Underbarrel: Foregrip
  • Handle: Impact Handle
  • Stock: Tactical Stock

Minimal recoil loadout for Milano 821

If your playstyle is more reactionary rather than barreling in headfirst and leading the attack, well, you’ll need to be able to draw the 821 out a little quicker than usual. 

Well, that’s where the Quickdraw Handle and Tactical Stock come into play. You’ll be able to draw the weapon much with them attached, while the Foregrip and Muzzle Break will help with the recoil. 

  • Barrel: 9.7 Cavalry Lancer 
  • Underbarrel: Foregrip
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Break 9
  • Handle: Quickdraw Handle
  • Stock: Tactical Stock

While these loadouts and weapon setups are helping some players, you might find that a tiny tweak helps you. Say, adding a magazine instead of a barrel or muzzle.


Though, you won’t know until you try it out. If you haven’t been able to get into the Black Ops Cold War beta so far, it opens up again on October 15-16 for Xbox, PS4, and PC early access players. October 17-19 will be the open for everyone period, so you will get a chance to test it if you want to.

Best Kilo 141 loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

Modern Warfare and Warzone are two very different experiences, so you’ll need different weapon attachments depending on which you’re playing. Here, we break down your best options when using the Kilo 141 Assault Rifle. 

Modern Warfare’s Gunsmith has been widely acclaimed, offering unprecedented weapon customization for a Call of Duty game. However, with so many options come a number of difficult choices. With Warzone Season 6, the Grau and Bruen have fallen out of favor, while the Kilo has risen to prominence as a ranged laser beam. A perfect complement to an SMG or shotgun, we’re going through the best Kilo class for Verdansk and multiplayer’s distinct purposes.


To make the choices simpler for you, we’ve chosen one loadout for Warzone and one for Modern Warfare. You don’t have to stick to these rigidly, but they should provide a useful starting point and give you an idea of what the Kilo’s best attachments are.

Best Kilo 141 loadout for Warzone

First up is our recommended loadout for Warzone, where the gun has become a mainstay among the best players in the world — as you’ll notice in recent world records. Given the size of the Verdansk map, this class focuses on being a ranged AR with comfortably controlled recoil and lethality from distance.

Warzone: Season 6’s most popular AR, this Kilo’s control at range is a perfect complement to an SMG or shotgun.

Sacrificing some mobility and ADS speed for recoil control, the Monolothic Suppressor, Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler barrel, and Commando Foregrip all help boost the Kilo’s ability to decimate enemies at range. Since this gun isn’t blessed with clean iron sights like the Grau’s, a scope like the VLK 3.0x Optic or the G.I. Mini Reflex is typically preferred for ease in targeting opponents from afar.

Finally, the 60 Round Mags offer the ability to take down multiple enemies at once, without slowing the weapon down as heavily as the 100-round drum does.

You’ll notice that this class is without a stock or a rear grip. If you want the former for mobility’s sake, you might prefer running an M4-A1 or a CR-56 AMAX anyway. As for the rear grip, the Kilo’s recoil control is already comfy enough to warrant a slightly steeper learning curve for the advantages that a 60-round mag and scope grant you.


Best Kilo 141 class for Modern Warfare

Unlike our Warzone loadout, this Modern Warfare one is more geared to more regular, faster engagements. Hence, the focus is more on ADS and recovery time, rather than straight-up damage range.

As you can see, the 19.8″ barrel has been swapped out for the 16.6″ SOCOM. This shorter barrel still slows ADS and mobility, but nowhere near as much as it’s heavier alternative.

The G.I. Mini Reflex is equipped, as it is probably the most versatile and useful sight in the game. However, the Commando Foregrip has been done away with for the Merc Foregrip, in order to compensate for some of the accuracy lost in the barrel change.


Now, you can equip a stock and rear grip to speed up your ADS time. This will let you get your sights up and have a fighting chance in any engagement. Similarly, you’re less likely to need 60-round mags in a standard public match, and the gun’s default reload is fairly prompt, so Sleight of Hand is not essential.

This class is mostly geared towards mid-range gunfights but maximizes the Kilo’s versatility to give you the best chance at both close and longer range engagements too.
