The Vaznev-9k SMG in Warzone 2 is a great close-range option for those who like to get up close and personal with the enemy. Here’s the best loadout for the Vaznev in Warzone 2, including the best attachments, Perk Package, and Equipment to complement the gun.

The Kastovia Weapon Platform is very popular in Warzone 2 Season 1, as players have been enjoying the Kastov 762 and the RPK, which FaZe Booya turned into a very powerful Assault Rifle.

Now, players are turning their attention to the Vaznev, which has impressed in Modern Warfare 2‘s multiplayer. That said, here’s our best loadout for the Vaznev-9k in Warzone 2.

Best Warzone 2 Vaznev-9k loadout attachments

  • Barrel: SA Response III
  • Muzzle: XTEN RR-40
  • Stock: Otrezat Stock
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

For this Warzone 2 Vaznev-9k loadout, we’ve gone with the SA Response III barrel and the XTEN RR-40 muzzle to improve the weapon’s damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control.

In order to provide some mobility and handling for the weapon, the Otrezat Stock and the True-Tac Grip will help sprint speed, aim walking speed, sprint to fire speed, and aim down sight speed.

The 45 Round Mag is essential for this loadout, as it means you will be able to take down multiple enemies with this Vaznev-9k loadout before having to reload.

  • Base Perk 2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor
  • Lethal: Drill Charge
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade

As this Warzone 2 Vaznev-9k loadout is built for close-range engagements, you’ll want to run the Weapon Specialist Perk Package, which allows you to carry a longer-ranged weapon thanks to the inclusion of Overkill.

Further, Strong Arm will help you be more accurate with the Drill Charge and Flash Grenade Equipment, which are both great for pushing teams in buildings, and the Spotter Perk will allow you to see any enemy Equipment when making a push.
