Best PPSh Warzone class loadout: Attachments, Perks, Setup

PPSh loadout guideActivision/Treyarch

The PPSh is a great SMG pick in Warzone Season 5, so find out which attachments you should be using to increase your kills in Verdansk.  

While Warzone’s Season 5 Reloaded update brought with it the four new weapons, additional Operators, and exciting modes – many CoD fans will still be looking for the best PPSh loadout to use. This iconic WWII is a  great close-quarters choice, especially when it’s kitted out with the correct attachments.

In fact, the PPSh comes packed with a lightning-fast rate of fire and decent clip size, making it one of the game’s most powerful SMGs to use. With Call of Duty: Vanguard on the horizon, the PPSh is one SMG that you’ll want to get accustomed to.

Best PPSh loadout for Warzone

PPSh Warzone loadoutActivision / Treyarch
This PPSh Warzone loadout hits incredibly hard in close-quarter fights.


  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 15.7″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Spetsnaz PKM Stock 
  • Ammunition: 55 Rnd Drum

The PPSh’s vertical recoil can make this SMG pretty unwieldy. As a result, our build isn’t here to try and minimize recoil – instead, it’s best to lean into the innate flaws of the gun and buff its close-range potential.

Therefore, we’ve gone with the GRU Suppressor and the 15.7″ Task Force barrel to boost Bullet Velocity and Maximum Range as much as possible. This will have you beaming down targets quicker than any other possible PPSh setup. 

Meanwhile, the Tiger Team Spotlight and Spetsnaz PKM Stock will speed up your movement speed, ADS strafe speed, and shooting movement speed – meaning you’ll be able to remain highly mobile without having to sacrifice any kill potential. This is a great attachment for those that enjoy aggressively pushing their foes or going for those sneaky flanks.

Lastly, the 55 Rnd Drum gives you plenty of ammunition to gun down multiple foes without having to constantly reload. The PPSh can quickly chew through rounds thanks to its high rate of fire, so having a decent mag size is a must for any kill-hungry player. 

Best PPSh setup (Perks & equipment)

The PPSh works perfectly with any meta AR.
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: CR-56 AMAX
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Just like most meta Warzone loadouts in Season 4, our PPSh class utilizes both EOD and Amped. Not only does this EOD help keep you safe from any explosive blasts, but Amped also enables you to quickly swap to your secondary weapon. After all, reloading mid-fight can often lead to some incredibly frustrating deaths. 

Meanwhile, the Overkill perk enables the use of the extremely deadly Krig 6 loadout, which still remains one of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone Season 5. While Overkill keeps you competitive across all engagement ranges, you’ll still want to pick up Ghost as soon as you can.

Lastly, both the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor help track down nearby enemies and flush out pesky campers. Simply locate your target, throw in a Semtex, and rush in with your PPSh to claim another kill for your prize. 

How to unlock the PPSh in Warzone

PPSH Warzone and Cold WarActivision / Treyarch
The PPSh-41 finally makes an appearance in Warzone and Cold War.

The PPSh is unlocked by getting 3 kills immediately after sprinting in 15 different matches, using SMGs. We recommend playing Rebirth Island or heading over to multiplayer as the smaller maps will make getting SMG kills easier. 

Of course, now you’ve got the weapon, you’ll need to kit it out with the best PPSh attachments to push it to its limits. Fortunately, the PPSh loadout above will send your enemies back to the Gulag.

Alternative PPSh loadout

The Bullfrog continues to dominate the competition in Warzone.

If you’re looking for an alternative loadout to the PPSh, check out our best Bullfrog Warzone loadout. This pint-sized SMG has dominated the competition since its release thanks to its high rate of fire, minimal recoil,  incredible hipfire accuracy, and ludicrous close-quarters damage. 

Unlike the PPSh, the Bullfrog comes packed with a huge magazine and is even capable of killing enemies outside of close-quarter scenarios. This makes it extremely useful when you find yourself needing to take down multiple foes.
