The PDSW 528 is a lethal SMG with incredible mobility and an above average TTK. In our best loadout, we’re going to show you the best attachments and perks you should be running with the PDSW 528 in Warzone 2.

When it comes to close-quarters skirmishes in Warzone 2, nothing can outmatch the damage and mobility of a top-tier SMG. Whilst powerful options like the Vaznev and Lachmann Sub stand above most, the PDSW 528 is another great alternative to use in Season 3 Reloaded.

The PDSW 528 is Warzone 2’s rendition of the FN P90, an iconic SMG that has featured in several previous Call of Duty titles. The P90 is best known for its unusual top-mounted magazine that can hold up to 50 rounds.

Despite its strengths, the PDSW 528 isn’t anything special without attachments. To maximize the potential of the PDSW 528, you’ll need a meta loadout for the gun in Warzone 2.

  • Muzzle: Bruen Pendulum
  • Barrel: FTAC Series IX 14.5″
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip
  • Comb: Mack 8 Ontrak Comb

For starters, you’ll want to equip the Bruen Pendulum muzzle and the FTAC Series IX 14.5″ barrel. These attachments significantly reduce the PDSW 528’s kickback and boost its bullet velocity, helping it perform better in mid-range engagements.

Alongside this, make sure to utilize the Bruen Q900 Grip and the Mack 8 Ontrak Comb. These reduce the SMG’s recoil even more, making it easier to land consistent shots on your opponents. Not only that, they enhance ADS time and sprint to fire speed, giving you plenty of mobility to play with.

Finally, round off the loadout with the Cronen Mini Pro, a top-tier optic that’s built for intense gunfights and thrives in enclosed spaces. Good alternative optics include the Slimline Pro, DF105 Reflex, and Cronen Mini Red Dot.

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk: Resupply
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Smoke Grenade

The best perks to use with the PDSW 528 are those that improve your versatility and ability to play aggressively. Given this, Overkill is a great choice as it lets you pair the PDSW 528 with a long-range weapon like the Hemlock ISO, RPK, or MCPR-300.

For the other Base Perk slot Bomb Squad is recommended. There aren’t many perks in Warzone 2 that will save your life but the lowered explosive damage of Bomb Squad can do just that.

Resupply is a good choice for the Bonus Perk as it keeps equipment refreshed reducing the number of bad situations you’ll end up in.

High Alert is the best Ultimate Perk in Warzone 2 to partner with the PDSW 528. It gives you free intel on enemy whereabouts and reduces the likelihood of you being downed from behind.

For lethal equipment, the Throwing Knife works well as it lets you quickly finish off downed enemies whilst saving ammo. Meanwhile, Smoke Grenades are a great pick for the Tactical Equipment slot as they let you move around the map and revive teammates more freely.

If the high fire rate of the PDSW 528 doesn’t fit your style of play, then consider trying out the powerful Minibak or FSS Hurricane.

Both are similar to the PDSW 528 being equipped with a large default mag and having great TTKs up close. The Minibak is best used as a sniper support as it can shred foes at medium range. As for the FSS Hurricane, it’s better to stick to close-quarter engagements.
