The CX-9 is Call of Duty: Warzone's newest weapon addition, and players are scrambling to find the optimal loadout for the new gun. FaZe Clan's Kris "Swagg" Lamberson shared his build in a YouTube video released Wednesday.

Swagg's loadout for the CX-9 is built around the 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags. These make the gun fire in short bursts rather than fully automatic, but in turn buff its damage immensely in addition to upping its ADS time and movement speed. This makes it particularly useful as a rushdown weapon.

"It ups the damage a lot," Swagg says in his video. "The damage, the speed, and all that stuff, too. It makes this gun hard hitting. I played some duos with it today and let me tell you, bro, I was cooking every single person I saw."

Here's his full loadout:

  • Barrel: CX-38S
  • Optic: G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand

Another important piece of Swagg's build is the CX-38S barrel, which buffs the CX-9's effective range, recoil control and bullet velocity while suppressing the sound of its shots. When this barrel is combined with the Commando Foregrip Swagg equips, the CX-9 becomes trivial to control even when firing as quickly as possible.
