The MP7 is a popular weapon in Modern Warfare and Warzone, but what are the best ways to run it in Verdansk? Here, we break down two of the strongest MP7 loadouts you can use. 

The MP7, while not considered that strong in regular multiplayer, has come to be one of the two most used SMGs in Warzone. Alongside the MP5, it has proved itself to be one of the best options for players, thanks to its high fire rate, manageable recoil and large ammo magazines.

However, as seasoned players will know, Warzone and Modern Warfare are very different games, meaning different loadouts are needed. These Warzone loadouts will be more geared towards medium-range gunfights and accuracy – as opposed to fast ADS and handling.

This first loadout is for less confident players, who may struggle to control the gun’s recoil more. It’s also more geared towards mid-range gunfights, so feel free to take a sniper as your secondary because you should be able to hold your own at most ranges (don’t challenge a Grau though – you’ll lose).

First off, you’ll notice both the Monolithic Suppressor and the FSS Recon. These will both buff your damage range, and help to stabilize recoil. While ADS time is slowed considerably, it’s worth it for the viability at medium ranges you’ll gain.

The Merc Foregrip will stabilize your shots even further, allowing you to stay on target when dealing with enemies further away. The G.I. Mini Reflex is one that can be easily swapped out – we’ve gone for it as it is the pro optic of choice, as well as being useable at various ranges.

Finally, the FORGE TAC Ultralight will increase your strafing abilities while ADS, meaning you’ll be a harder target for enemies while in gunfights. There’s also no need for extended mags on this class, as the base MP7 comes with 40 rounds per mag.

This second class is for more confident players, who are capable of controlling the gun’s modest recoil, even at longer ranges. We’d also recommend taking an AR as a secondary for this class, because this MP7 is less viable at longer ranges, but stronger up close.

The Monolithic Suppressor stays, to keep you off the radar and help your range. However, the FSS Recon is swapped out for the FSS Strike. This will keep the buffs to your damage range and bullet velocity, but slightly reduces recoil control. Your handling, however, will improve.

Similarly, the Merc Foregrip is swapped out for the Commando, seeing a big buff to handling and mobility, at the expense of recoil control. The Stippled Grip Tape will speed up your ADS for close-quarters engagements, with the FORGE TAC Ultralight ensuring you’re a fast-moving target with your sights up.

Because this class is geared towards closer ranges, you’re best off using an AR in your second slot. The M4A1 or the Grau 5.56 are the best options, with the latter even being called overpowered.

While these classes are good starting points, feel free to mess around with them to fit your play-style and preferences. Be sure to tweet us @DexertoIntel to let us know how you get on!

Survival in Black Ops Cold War Zombies is determined by a lot of factors but not many are more important than the weapon you choose to take on the hordes of Zombies inside Die Maschine. Here’s some of the best weapons to use. 

Black Ops Cold War has arrived and there’s been a number of significant changes to the Zombies mode. These include weapon rarity, custom loadouts, and exclusive field upgrades. These changes have added a new layer of strategy to Zombies and given players more choice in how they take on waves of dead enemies.

Of course, the question is, what’s the best way to survive in Black Ops Cold War Zombies?

Well, here’s our rundown of what weapons we recommend you use to last as long as possible.

There are some exciting easter eggs in Cold War’s Zombies, make sure you’re on the lookout for any clues.

Best weapons to use in Black Ops Cold War Zombies

In no particular order, here’s what we think are the best weapons to use in Cold War’s Zombies.


The knife is not as exciting as some of the other weapons on the list, but it’s a great choice for the early rounds. The weapon capable of one-shotting zombies all the way up to round 14 and can be upgraded via Pack-A-Punch for the later rounds.

There’s doubt that as the rounds progress the knife will become less and less useful. However, considering it doesn’t cost anything, it’s a perfect choice to wipe out zombies with ease in the opening rounds.


As long-time Call of Duty fans will know, the M16 has been a staple in every Black Ops title in both Zombies and multiplayer. However, it has never been a top-tier weapon until now.

The M16 is a great choice for both the early and late game rounds. Once upgraded it becomes a 6 bullet burst assault rifle with a large magazine. It’s fair to say it’s a weapon choice that you definitely won’t regret.

Some of the guns off the wall are more reliable than the mystery box weapons.

Ray Gun

The Ray Gun is arguably the most iconic weapon in Black Ops Zombies across all the titles. However, in recent games, it lost a lot of its power and wasn’t picked up by a lot of players. It is only in Cold War that it’s regained its reputation as a top-tier weapon.

It melts through hordes of undead enemies with ease and can be upgraded for the later rounds. Despite receiving a nerf to its damage, it remains a solid choice for any player to pick up.

Galo SA12

The Galo SA12 is a pump-action shotgun and the heavy hitter of the list. This weapon can be bought off the wall so it’s a perfect choice for every match. It’s reliable for the early rounds and once upgraded it’s absolutely destructive.

This weapon is unbelievably popular among streamers and content creators for good reason. It packs a punch and it’s a great choice for any players looking to survive until the high rounds.

The Gallo SA12 is building a reputation as one of the best shotguns in Cold War.

D.I.E Shockwave

The beauty of the D.I.E Shockwave is its unique design and infinite ammo supply. It may not be the best weapon in the game to clear hordes of zombies instantly, but it’s a great option for players who hate refilling their ammo. The weapon can technically be used infinitely if utilized correctly. On top of the fact that it’s probably one of the most unique weapons in Cold War, it’s definitely worth trying it out.

That’s our rundown of the best weapons to use in Black Ops Cold War Zombies. You can check out all our Black Ops Cold War guides on our dedicated hub here.
