It’s been a little over two weeks since Warzone Season 5 began, and players are once-again tasked to make sense of the nerfs and buffs implemented with this update. The definition of best weapons and best loadouts are ever-evolving, though amid the changes made, the AK-47 has once again maintained it’s prowess on the fields of Verdansk.

Here is the best AK-47 loadout in Warzone Season 5.

The AK-47 is one of the most iconic weapons in cinema and gaming, and it’s cemented its presence since debuting in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Often cited as one of the best weapons in any game it appears in, this assault rifle is an absolute powerhouse with significant stopping power at the cost of its extreme recoil. It hasn’t stopped players from utilizing its power, and can absolutely sweep the competition when the recoil is under control.

Since the weapon is touted as an excellent choice for sniper support in Warzone, a setup that can best utilize its long and short-range capabilities is recommenced. Here’s a loadout that best suits those needs, while also retaining power:

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20” Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd Magazine

The GRU Suppressor and the 20” Spetsnaz RPK Barrel give the rifle some good long-range capabilities, though it increases recoil. The Spetsnaz Grip, however, greatly negates any additional recoil gained, and the Axial Arms 3x could greatly bolster the weapon’s newfound range capabilities at the small cost of aiming speed. Finally, the increase to a 45 Rnd Magazine means that it’s going to take a bit for the AK-47 to run out of ammo, good for that pesky target that keeps moving or that enemy that's sneaking up behind you.

Players need to remember that while this AK-47 loadout rips and tears, the decision of what the best weapon is ultimately lies with the player’s playstyle. As mentioned earlier, the AK-47’s recoil is powerful, and it may turn interest off from players who prefer a more relaxed weapon. But when handled properly, it’s a reliable weapon that sees many uses. People have been making their own loadouts best suited to their playstyle.
