Cold War MG 82 loadout

If you’re looking for a fast-firing LMG to rip through the competition, Cold War Season 4’s new MG 82 is the weapon for you. Here are the best attachments and perks to run with it in Cold War’s multiplayer.

LMGs have always been extremely effective in Black Ops Cold War, and Season 4’s MG 82 continues this trend. Although heavy, its fast-fire rate and easy to control recoil make it a must-use on Season 4’s Hijacked and Collateral maps.

With clean iron sights and a low time-to-kill, you can use attachments that prioritize its mobility and damage range, making it one of the most versatile LMGs in the game.

Here are the best attachments and perks to run with Cold War Season 4’s MG 82 light machine gun.

Best Cold War MG 82 loadout & attachments

  • Barrel: 16.4″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: SFOD Speedgrip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 150 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock

First, we recommend the 16.4″ Task Force. The base MG 82 doesn’t have the best range, so the Task Force is worthwhile because it increases the weapon’s damage, bullet velocity, and effective damage range.

The SFOD Speedgrip increases your sprint move speed and helps with horizontal recoil control, making this weapon much easier to use at range.

One of the main benefits of using an LMG is the huge magazine size, and the Salvo 150 Rnd Fast Mag takes full advantage of this. You’ll hardly need to reload, and when you do, it’ll be extremely fast thanks to the ‘fast mag’ attribute.

These attachments weigh the weapon down so to increase your mobility to keep up with the faster Assault Rifles on the map, we recommend the Airborne Elastic Wrap and SAS Combat Stock. With these, you’ll get a huge boost to aim down sight speed, aim walk movement speed, and you’ll be able to dropshot.

Best perks to use with the MG 82 in Cold War

Flak Jacket Perk Cold War

The best Wildcard you can run with the MG 82 is Perk Greed, as it allows you to equip two perks from each category.

With the Perk Greed Wildcard equipped, here are the perks you should run with the MG 82.

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket & Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger & Gearhead
  • Perk 3: Ghost & Gung-Ho

Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask are essential for almost any Cold War loadout, as they protect you from anything the enemy throws your way.

With the MG 82’s large magazine size, you’re likely to run through a lot of bullets mowing down the competition. Scavenger will let you resupply ammo on the fly, and Gearhead will allow you to carry two Field Upgrades and recharge them faster.

And finally, Ghost will hide you from Spy Planes for easy flanks and Gung-Ho will give a massive boost to your mobility, allowing you to reload while sprinting.
