The RAM-9 SMG in Warzone.

With the release of Season 3, the RAM-9 continues to be one of the best SMGs you can use in Warzone thanks to its dominant close-range performance, and this is our optimized loadout to get the most out of it.

The RAM-9 has become by far the most used SMG in Warzone, outperforming all of its competitors since it was added in Season 2. It has avoided nerfs in the patches that followed ensuring that it is still the best close-range option in the current meta, even with the release of Season 3.

However, this dominant submachine gun isn’t limited to just close quarters with it also holding its own at medium range. That is if you are using a top-tier build that takes advantage of this weapon’s underrated versatility.

To do that, you’ll want to use this recommended loadout that has been fine-tuned to make the most out of Warzone’s strongest SMG.


Best RAM-9 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider
  • Comb: Recon Comb
  • Underbarrel: XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Retort 90 Grip Tape

The best part of the ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider is that it not only helps keep your location unknown but also gives a significant boost to gun control and ADS speed.

This aim control is further made better through the use of the Recon Comb and Retort 90 Grip Tape while the XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop will boost your movement speed to help you stay moving while landing shots.

Finally, using the 50 Round Drum will give you a bit of an ADS Speed boost, and also provide more bullets to fire in a round to take your targets down.

RAM-9 Warzone Loadout: Perks and Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
    • increases Tac Sprint duration
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
    • reload faster
  • Perk 3: Quick Fix
    • regenerate health when killing a player or inserting a plate
  • Perk 4: Resolute
    • move faster when hit with an enemy shot
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

Given the RAM-9 is an SMG, you’ll want to gear up your glass to maximize the weapon’s strengths. Double Time and Resolute will do just that, with both of them helping your movement speed around the map in all situations.

Perk 3 is a bit of a toss-up since Quick Fix is arguably one of the best Perks in Warzone, provided you’re an aggressive player and can be a lifesaver in many situations.

Finally, Sleight of Hand can help you keep your gun ready at a moment’s notice so that you will never be caught without having any bullets ready to fire.
