The WSP Swarm is the undisputed champion of close-range combat in Warzone, having avoided recent game nerfs. For those looking to master this meta SMG, here’s the top WSP Swarm loadout.

Rarely does Call of Duty introduce a weapon as game-defining as the WSP Swarm, a modern take on the Uzi Pro, now leading the close-range battle scene.

The WSP Swarm isn’t a particularly versatile weapon nor is it the easiest to use, but its absurd time to kill up close is the only thing it needs to be top-tier.

This is our best WSP Swarm Warzone loadout that you’ll want to use to not be left behind by the competition.


Best WSP Swarm Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: L4R Flash Hider
  • Barrel: WSP Reckless-90 Long Barrel
  • Optic: Mk.3 Reflector
  • Stock: FSS Fortress Heavy Stock
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mag

The biggest weakness of the WSP Swarm is that it can be a real handful to control due to its sporadic recoil. To make its recoil more manageable it’s best to use both the FFS Fortress Heavy Stock and L4R Flash Hider muzzle.

Another shortcoming of the WSP Swarm is its obscured iron sights which aren’t ideal for a gun with this much kick. Due to its sub-par sights, it’s highly recommended to use a close-range optic like the Mk.3 Reflector.

The WSP Reckless-90 Long Barrel is this SMG’s best unique attachment as it not only further reduces recoil but also provides a massive boost to effective range. These stats boosts are fantastic in Warzone where gunfights typically take place at longer distances than multiplayer.

A bigger magazine is always useful in Warzone so it’s important to equip the sizable 50 Round Mag that perfectly compliments its spectacular fire rate of over 1,000 RPM. Despite its big capacity, this magazine attachment hardly affects the SMG’s mobility at all making it a wonderful choice.

The WSP Swarm makes up for its lack of range with an unbelievably fast fire rate.

WSP Swarm Warzone Loadout: Perks and Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Spotter
  • Perk 3: Stalker
  • Perk 4: High Alert
  • Lethal: Drill Charge
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

Given that the WSP Swarm excels up close mobility Perks like Double Time and Stalker are preferred. The former enhances Tactical Sprint which helps you get around faster while the latter buffs strafe speed which is perfect for moving around corners quickly.

When using the WSP Swarm you will be running into buildings, pushing other teams constantly. This can run the risk of triggering a lethal enemy Proximity Mine or Claymore but Spotter saves you from that fate by highlighting enemy equipment through walls.

Something else to consider is that transitioning around Urzikstan can leave you vulnerable to snipers. To mitigate this it’s best to equip High Alert which provides intel when an enemy is aiming at you letting you preemptively maneuver to avoid incoming fire.

For equipment, a Drill Charge is great for flushing out other teams from power positions and giving yourself the edge over stationary squads. Similarly, a Stun Grenade can leave enemies vulnerable by temporarily restricting their movement.

Best alternative to WSP Swarm in Warzone

The Striker 9 provides a great alternative to the WSP Swarm with it also being a primarily close-range SMG with a fast fire rate and reasonable TTK. It isn’t quite as potent as the WSP but has a better range and is easier to use.
