Warzone 2 Basilisk

Warzone 2’s Basilisk Pistol is deadly at close range due to the popular Akimbo attachment. Here’s the best Basilisk loadout for Warzone 2 with attachments and Perk Package.

In Warzone 2, players must select between a preset combination of four Perks called Perk Packages. This new system along with the ability to purchase weapons at Buy Stations has made Overkill less common than it was in the original Warzone.

When players grab their first custom loadout they often don’t have Overkill equipped which makes their Secondary weapon selection important. With the Akimbo Basilisk, players can dominate close-quarters gunfights across Al Mazrah.

Here’s the best Basilisk loadout in Warzone 2, to turn the dual Pistols into one of the best Secondary weapons in the battle royale.

Best Warzone 2 Basilisk loadout attachments

Basilisk Warzone 2
  • Barrel: 10.5″ FTAC Arrow
  • Laser: Revo-LSD 7mW
  • Trigger Action: Bryson Match Grade
  • Rear Grip: Akimbo Basilisk
  • Ammunition: .500 Snakeshot

This Basilisk loadout requires the Akimbo Basilisk attachment to make it incredibly deadly. Double the damage will be too much to handle for most players. Paired with the Revo-LSD 7mw laser you should have no problem hitting your shots with improved hip fire accuracy and recoil control.

The infamous .500 Snakeshot ammunition will make the Basilisk feel like a Shotgun. Meanwhile, the 10.5″ FTAC Arrow is a well-rounded barrel that increases hip fire accuracy, movement speed, damage range, and bullet velocity.

Of course, the Bryson Match Grade will increase the fire rate so you can get your shots off much quicker.

Best Warzone 2 Basilisk loadout Perk Package & Equipment

  • Perk Package: Vanguard (Double Time, Bomb Squad, Resupply, High Alert)
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex

Vanguard is one of the best Perk Packages available in Warzone 2 due to its versatility. Resupply shouldn’t make a major difference, but the buffs you receive with Double Time, Bomb Squad, and High Alert and invaluable in Warzone 2.

Flash Grenades continue to be incredibly powerful in Warzone 2 as they blind players for an extremely long duration. Players can also take advantage of their Semtex to clear out indoor areas with extra explosive power.

Best Warzone 2 Basilisk alternatives

The P890 and X12 are powerful alternatives to the Akimbo Basilisk in Warzone 2. Both Handguns have their own Akimbo loadouts that could continue to dominate in Warzone 2 Season 2.
