Best P90 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 P90 SMG. 

While the MP5 and MP7 dominate Warzone currently, the meta is shifting slightly and edging towards other SMGs. We have recently seen the Uzi used in competitive play, at the same time many players are realizing the P90 is one of the best SMGs in Warzone.


It’s not currently as popular as the MP5 or MP7 but, with the right attachments, the P90 can become as strong as one.

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • FORGE TAC Retribution
  • G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Fly Strap Stock
  • Stippled Grip Tape

First up is the Monolithic Suppressor and FORGE TAC Retribution barrel. These will massively increase players’ damage, as well as significantly aiding recoil control. Another advantage of the suppressor is that you will not show up on enemy radars, meaning your location will never be revealed.


The G.I. Mini Reflex will help you hit your shots at longer ranges, as will the Stippled Grip Tape, which significantly reduces recoil.

Finally, the Fly Strap Stock is a must-have, as it boosts both ADS speed and Aim Walking Movement Speed. With this attachment, you’ll not only get your sights up quicker, but also be harder to hit while firing.

  • FFS 10.6″ Pro Barrel
  • Tac Laser
  • Rubberized Grip Tape
  • Fly Strap Stock
  • Stippled Grip Tape

For this Modern Warfare class, the emphasis is more on ADS time and regular, shorter range gunfights, rather than range and recoil control. The optics are gone, with the P90’s fairly open iron sights being more than adequate for the majority of gunfights players will find themselves in.


In this vein, both the Fly Strap Stock and Stippled Grip Tape remain, massively reducing ADS time. The FSS 10.6″ Pro Barrel increases ADS time slightly, but boosts damage range and bullet velocity, in a worthwhile trade-off.

Finally, the Rubberized Grip Tape helps to stabilize shots for close to medium range engagements, while the Tac Laser buffs hip-fire considerably. This will allow you to make the most of the P90’s high rate of fire, and hit a few shots even before you’re ADS.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Beta is finally upon us, and we’ve got everything you need to know about how to pre-load and download it ahead of time on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Ahead of Black Ops Cold War’s highly-anticipated November 13 release, Call of Duty players are getting the chance to try out the game’s multiplayer in a massive Beta period during October.


While the Beta is going to be open to everyone on all platforms, those who pre-order the game get early access on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Furthermore, thanks to Sony’s exclusivity agreement with Activision, PlayStation 4 players got their hands on it before anyone else.

The details for how to pre-load the game on your console or PC can be found below, as well as the full schedule for all three platforms.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta will take place over the course of a two week period.

How to pre-download Black Ops Cold War Beta on PS4

The early access period on PS4 started on Thursday, October 8 before the Beta was opened to all PlayStation users on Saturday, October 10. If you pre-ordered the game digitally, you could actually download the Beta early by simply searching ‘Black Ops Cold War Beta’ in the PlayStation Store.

There will be an option to download and pre-load the file before you can actually play, and you will not need a code. Just simply click on it and, as long as you’ve pre-ordered digitally, the system will allow you to start downloading.

It’s also worth noting that the same file will be used for both weekends, so you don’t need to delete and redownload it between the first and second sessions. However, this is a different program than the Alpha, so that can be deleted as it’s no longer needed.

PS4 players who pre-ordered Black Ops Cold War digitally can start pre-loading the Beta file now.

How to pre-load Beta on Xbox One & PC

As mentioned above, the first week of the Beta was reserved exclusively for PS4 before also including Xbox One and PC this week. As with PlayStation, there will be an early access period on these other platforms as well, between October 15-16, after which the Beta becomes open to everyone on October 17.

The pre-loading period for Xbox One and PC started on Tuesday, October 13 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. The process is pretty much the same: Xbox players who have pre-ordered a digital version of the game on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, or Xbox Series X can find the Beta in the console store, while the PC version will be listed under “Partner Games” in the Blizzard launcher.

Keep in mind that, unlike with PS4, those on Xbox must have an active Xbox Live Gold membership, and PC players will need to have a account.

Xbox One and PC users won’t be able to play the first weekend of the Black Ops Cold War Beta.

Additional info

For changes between the Alpha and the Beta, Treyarch released a massive set of patch notes on October 7 detailing all of the adjustments and improvements they’ve made since the game’s previous build.

Here are a few details you should know before the Beta periods kicks off:

  • Early access is only available for digital pre-orders. If you’ve pre-purchased a physical copy, you will not get early access.
  • If you’ve received a Beta code through Activision, Xfinity, or other promotions, you will receive an email with a download code
  • Digital pre-orders will not need a code to download the Beta, simply search your console store or Blizzard launcher for the game once the pre-load periods begin

When is the Black Ops Cold War Beta? Dates & schedule

Here’s a reminder of the full Beta schedule for BOCW; all periods begin and end at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on their respective dates.
