The Krig 6 still is one of the most accurate Assault Rifles in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 5, and possibly the game, and we’ve got the perfect Perks and attachments to help you become unstoppable.
This powerful Assault Rifle is incredible at close-to-mid-range and absolutely decimates at long-distance engagements. We even ranked the Krig 6 as Cold War’s best weapon in Treyarch’s latest Call of Duty title, so it’s absolutely worth having in at least one of your Black Ops Cold War loadouts.
On top of its CoD: Cold War supremacy, it’s also been an unbelievable gun in Call of Duty’s battle royale title too. If you’re looking for the best class in Warzone, you can check out our Krig 6 Warzone loadout.
Here’s the best combination of attachments and perks for your Krig 6 in Black Ops Cold War Season 5 Reloaded.
Best Black Ops Cold War Krig 6 attachments
- Optic: Microflex LED
- Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
- Barrel: 19.7″ Ranger
- Body: Ember Sighting Point
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Magazine: 40 Rnd
- Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
- Stock: Raider Stock
With the Gunfighter Wildcard equipped, the Krig can hold up to eight attachments, so we’ve started with the Microflex LED sight for precise shots at any range. To improve the weapon’s accuracy even further, the Infantry Compensator and Field Agent Grip will make vertical recoil almost non-existent.
As you’ll want to hold down long lines of sight, you’ll need a high bullet velocity to take out targets quickly at any range. To do this, the 19.7″ Ranger barrel is an excellent choice.
For the Krig 6’s body, we’ve applied the Ember Sighting Point. Not only will you be able to hip-fire with deadly accuracy if the situation arises, but the torch will also reveal enemies, counteracting some of Black Ops Cold War’s visibility issues.
The 40 Rnd Magazine bolsters its ammo capacity, allowing you to take out several targets without reloading, and you can even afford to miss a few shots in a firefight.
Next, we have the Airborne Elastic Wrap for our handle as it greatly increases your ADS and allows you to get firing much quicker. Plus, it nullifies most flinch resistance effects too.
The final attachment you should run is the Raider Stock which gives your Aim Walking Movement speed a healthy bonus, making yourself a hard target to hit while strafe shooting.
Best Perks to run with Black Ops Cold War’s Krig 6
- Perk 1: Flak Jacket
- Perk 2: Scavenger
- Perk 3: Ghost
While holding down lanes and defending Hardpoints or flags in Domination, expect a shower of Frag Grenades and Semtex to come your way. Flak Jacket will keep you protected from explosives, which is vital to staying alive and keeping killstreaks going.
To make sure you can hold onto your devastating Krig 6, Scavenger will allow you to resupply ammo on the fly. Finally, to further preserve your life, Ghost will keep you hidden from enemy Spy Planes, allowing for effective flanks and ambushes.
