Best PP-29 loadout attachments in Battlefield 2042

  • Barrel: Extended Barrel / Suppressor
  • Sight: Fusion Holo
  • Ammo: Standard Issue
  • Underbarrel: Default

To start this PP-29 loadout, we recommend having both the Extended Barrel and Suppressor in your attachment Plus System screen. The Extended Barrel is perfect for moving between Objectives where you need some more range, and then you can switch to the Suppressor when you’re near enemies to be silent and stealthy.

For the sight, there’s no better option than the Fusion Holo. It’s the standard red dot sight, which gives perfect clarity in the kind of fights you’ll be taking with the PP-29.

And for the magazine, Standard Issue is a solid choice. You’ll get 65 rounds in the magazine, and it will give solid boosts to the recoil control, reload speed, and rate of fire. And there aren’t any Underbarrel options, so you don’t need to worry about that.

Mackay’s Grappling Hook is one of the most useful tools in the game, allowing him to quickly reach the high ground and get out of less-than-ideal situations fast. And his Nimble Trait speeds up your movement speed while aiming, making you a difficult target.
