The OTs 9 is one of the most lethal SMGs that has been added to Warzone, so find out which attachments you should be using in Season 2 Reloaded with our best OTs 9 loadout.

Warzone Pacific is well underway and while Season 2 Reloaded has been quite a hit, Season 3 is on the verge of being released. 

Despite this, it can be hard to pick an SMG from the countless options available in Warzone. However, although it’s not the most popular pick, it may be worth testing out the OTs 9.

This full-auto submachine gun comes packed with a blisteringly fast fire rate, great recoil, and decent damage in close-quarter engagements.

The OTs 9 could be a favorite for many SMG fans.


  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor 
  • Barrel: 8.1” Task Force 
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Ammunition: VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip

The GRU Suppressor and 8.1” Task Force barrel both help with increasing the OTs 9’s damage range, while also decreasing the gun’s vertical recoil. If that wasn’t enough, the added bullet velocity and suppression from the muzzle will help with securing longer-range kills and keep your shots hidden.

To enhance the OTs 9’s sprint to fire, movement speed, and hip-fire accuracy we’ve utilized the Bruiser Grip and Tiger Team Spotlight. These handy attachments eliminate any sluggishness, giving you the tools needed to aggressively rush your foes.  

While squad wipes may be off the cards, the VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag is arguably the best choice. Not only does this attachment give you the maximum amount of bullets, but it also ensures that your reload time is kept to a minimum.

Best OTs 9 setup (Perks & equipment)

The OTs 9 loadout will be familiar to most Warzone players.

Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Primary: Cooper Carbine
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Our OTs 9 class utilizes all the standard meta Warzone perks. EOD helps keep you safe from explosive blasts, while Amped gives increased speed when swapping to your primary weapon. 

While the OTs 9 may have a little more range than your average SMG, you’re still better off switching to an AR in mid to long-range firefights. As a result, the Overkill perk is a must for those that wish to be competitive across all ranges. We recommend using the STG44 or the Cooper Carbine, as they’re the top-tier picks in the current meta.

Once you’ve secured your first loadout, we recommend switching to a class that has the Ghost perk. This will keep you hidden from any prying eyes and keep you safe from enemy UAV spam. 

Rounding things off at the bottom is the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor. Both these items are essential for those that enjoy aggressively pursuing enemy squads and flushing out pesky campers.

Gunning for multi-kills can be rather tricky on larger maps, so we recommend playing on Nuketown or Hijacked where possible. Hardcore playlists can also help you farm easy kills. For Warzone, you’ll want to stick to Rebirth Island due to the more intimate nature of the mode’s firefights. 

Best OTs 9 loadout Warzone tips

The OTs 9 has dominated as one of the most used SMGs in recent months of Warzone. Its accuracy, controllable recoil, and damage output all lend to its high pick rate. However, since the release of Warzone Season 2 Reloaded, other SMGs, specifically the MP40, have started rising up the ranks.

With that said, the OTs 9 is still one of the best in the game. And here are some tips you should know when utilizing this loadout:

  • As with most SMGs in Warzone, adopting a playstyle that lends to the close-range capabilities of the OTs 9 will help you secure those kills. While this weapon can handle medium-range engagements, it shines at close range.
  • To make up for the lack of range on this SMG, using an assault rifle like the STG44 or Cooper Carbine is recommended. A sniper rifle such as the Swiss K31 will also do the trick in covering those long distances.
  • The Heartbeat Sensor tactical is great for locating enemies that are in close proximity. If you suspect an enemy is nearby, and you don’t have the option of using a UAV, this tactical can pinpoint their exact location. From there, let the OTs 9 do the rest.

Alternative to the OTs 9 loadout

Cooper Carbine WarzoneActivision
The Cooper Carbine only recently broke into the top 5 most popular weapons.

Another gun that has a similar playstyle to the OTs 9 is the Cooper Carbine. While this Vanguard weapon is technically classified as an Assault Rifle, its characteristics are similar to that of an SMG.

Our best Cooper Carbine loadout utilizes the 60 Rnd Drums. This enables you to down multiple foes without having to reload – an area the OTs 9 struggles with. The Cooper Carbine also has an insanely fast fire rate, respectable range, and solid damage output.

For those who are looking for a strong close-quarters weapon that can also hold its own at range, then the Cooper Carbine is arguably one of the best choices.

Additionally, with the Warzone Pacific Season 3 update arriving on April 27, we will be updating this loadout to match the refreshed meta, so make sure to check back soon.
