Warzone’s latest SMG, the OTs 9, dropped early on Thursday, July 15, and players are already scrambling to find the best loadout.
Those who’ve already had the benefit of completing the corresponding in-game challenge or simply purchasing it outright from the COD Store have a head start on others just figuring out where to get it—meaning there’s no better time to outfit the weapon for battle. Verdansk can be a frightening place, after all. It’s best to walk into the area perfectly armed.
Here’s the best loadout for the OTs 9 submachine gun (SMG).
Best OTs 9 Loadout in Warzone
The OTs 9 is already a powerful weapon in its own right. As a fully automatic SMG mean for close combat encounters, players can rely on this gun for maximum damage output while minimizing recoil kickback. Unfortunately, this comes at the expense of a smaller magazine—about 40 rounds each.
Not that this matters, according to players. The OTs 9 is still an absolute monster upclose and can dominate even the most challenging solo and duo queues.
With that said, here’s our take on the best loadout:
- Ammunition: Spetznaz 40 Round
- Barrel: 8.1” Task Force
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
- Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
- Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
It’s all about mobility and control with this build. The 8.1” Task Force Barrel and the standard GRU Suppressor will add that extra kick to put players in the dirt fast. After all, “close combat” doesn’t necessarily mean melee range. Why wait until you can see the whites of their eyes?
The Brusier Grip will make sure the recoil from the gun—partnered with that unfortunate addition we get when using the 8.1” Task Force—is much more manageable. Meanwhile, the KGB Skeletal Stock will help any swift player close the distance to their kill in moments.
The Spetznaz 40 Round magazine offers the largest size available with this weapon that provides the least amount of drawbacks.
