CX-9 Build for Warzone Season 5 Reloaded Guide

Fan are familiar to updates that cause big changes to Warzone's weapon meta. The Season 5 Reloaded update will be the battle royale's last big change, creating many alterations to weapons.

Players noticed that the CX-9 SMG was improved with an increase in its headshot multiplier and sprint-to-fire time. The Modern Warfare weapon has a headshot multiplier that improved from 1.45x to 1.50x, a neck damage multiplier that changed to 1.2x from 1.01x, and a sprint-to-fire time that is quicker by 5%. The improved weapon has been called the best sniper support gun by fans.

While the weapon's pick rate makes it more appealing, players don't consider the weapon on a meta level. The CX-9 is still at a 0.93% pick rate, according to WZRanked. Metaphor suggested a loadout with a barrel CX-38S, a 5mW Laser, a G.I. Mini Reflex for an optic, a CX-FR for stock, and 50 Round Drums for a magazine.

Metaphor's suggestions were created for a build that centers on near- to medium-range abilities and results in an unchecked recoil. However, fans noticed that it takes a few moments to become acclimated to the bounce from the CX-9, but if players select reasonable gun battles, this weapon will be the best support for a sniper.
