Best Vaznev-9K Warzone 2 loadout: Class setup, attachments, Perks

Vaznev-9K SMG in Warzone 2Activision

The Vaznev-9K is a high fire-rate SMG that’s extremely powerful at close quarters. So, here’s a Vaznev-9K loadout for Warzone 2 with the best attachments and perks in Season 2 Reloaded.

While Assault Rifles are the most popular weapon class in Warzone, rivaling the SMGs at close quarters is next to impossible. Submachine guns are known for their rapid rate of fire, making them effective during all stages of a match, but particularly if you’re looking to make an aggressive push in an enclosed space.

With so many SMGs on the list, the Vaznev-9K stands out from the rest as it boasts both low recoil and a great fire rate.

Not only that, the gun has a 9.5% pick rate in Season 2 Reloaded which makes it one of the most popular options in the game.

So, here’s a Vaznev-9K loadout for Warzone 2 equipped with the right attachments and Perks to go ruthless in Call of Duty’s latest BR.


Best Vaznev-9K Warzone 2 loadout


  • Muzzle: Bruen Cubic Comp
  • Stock: Markeev R7
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

We start our Vaznev-9K loadout with the Bruen Cubic Comp Muzzle. It helps to stabilize the horizontal and vertical recoil spread of the weapon, making it easier to control while spraying down enemies. Next, we recommend using the Markeev R7 stock as it helps to enhance your loadout’s overall mobility with better sprint speed and of course, a better ADS time.

Optics are always a personal preference but here we recommend the Cronen Mini Pro. It gives you enough room to focus on your enemies while shooting and keep a close tab on the surroundings as well. To be on the safer side, we’d recommend using the 45 Round Mag as it would help to kill multiple enemies at once, or finish off a downed enemy without reloading.

Lastly, use the True-Tac Rear Grip as it improves both ADS & Sprint to Fire Speeds. This particular loadout allows you to effectively use the weapon both with and without ADSing, so either way, you’re good to go.

Best Vaznev-9K Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

Perk Package: Specter

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Tracker
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal: Proximity Mine
  • Tactical Equipment: Heartbeat Sensor

The Specter is the perfect Perk Package with the Vaznev-9K SMG. Double Time increases the duration of Tactical Sprint which can be crucial while trying to escape a gunfight or chasing down enemies. Tracker gives you the intel of enemies’ location as you’d be able to see their footprints. This allows your team to track them down and secure their kills.

Spotter is the ideal Bonus Perk as it helps you to spot enemy equipment, Field Upgrades, and Killstreaks through walls. And lastly, for the Ultimate Perk, Ghost might just be the best for you as it helps to go undetected by UAVs, Heartbeat Sensors, or even Portable Radars. This is quite crucial for late games when enemies won’t be able to get intel on your team, giving you the headroom to catch them off guard.

Use the Proximity Mine and Heartbeat Sensor as Lethal and Tactical equipment. If an enemy steps on your Proximity Mine, you’ll get the info while the Heartbeat Sensor will give their positions.
