With the launch of the Season 5 Reloaded update in Call of Duty: Warzone, it appears Raven Software has put the finishing touches on its preference for what the meta should be.

And while the UGM-8 appears to still be the best primary weapon in the game, it seems those on TikTok agree that the newly buffed CX-9 SMG is the best option up close.

As longtime Warzone players can likely attest to, the CX-9 had been a decent gun in Season 5. However, after the Season 5 Reloaded patch, the CX-9 notably received a huge buff to its damage multipliers and sprint-to-fire speed.

In @warnereu's TikTok, the power of the new CX-9 can be seen in all its glory, being an absolutely devastating weapon to go against up close whether or not the person using it is ADS'ing or hipfiring.

Prominent Warzone content creator, DiazBiffle, posted another TikTok showcasing the CX-9 in which he called it the "new PPSH."

For those looking to see what all the fuss is all about, or perhaps found that their go-to SMG isn't hitting like it used to, feel free to try out the following CX-9 weapon loadout:

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drums
  • Stock: CX-FR Stock
