Best C58 loadout for CoD: Cold War Season 5
The C58 is Black Ops Cold War’s latest Assault Rifle and is a nostalgia-inducing throwback to the original Black Ops Galil. Here are the attachments and perks you should be running with it in Season 5.
Treyarch introduced the C58 in Season 4, and this fully automatic Assault Rifle closely resembles the Galil from the original Black Ops.
While this weapon has a slow fire rate, its damage, bullet velocity, and recoil control make it best suited for taking long-range fights in Cold War’s multiplayer. The main areas that need improving are its recoil control and damage range.
Here are the best attachments and perks for the C58 in Season 5.
Best Cold War C58 loadout & attachments
- Optic: Microflex LED
- Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
- Barrel: 18.7″ Reinforced Heavy
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition: Salvo 30 Rnd Fast Mag
This loadout will focus on priming the weapon for medium to long-range combat by improving recoil control and damage range. First off, we’re starting off with the Microflex LED optic for a cleaner picture when aiming down sights.
Next, we’ll focus on improving the weapon’s effective damage range. The 18.7″ Reinforced Heavy barrel will help you avoid rushing objectives and engaging in close-quarters encounters with the C58.
Then we’re using the Infantry Compensator and Field Agent Grip for maximum recoil control. Combined, these attachments reduce both the horizontal and vertical recoil, making controlling the weapon easy.
The C58 only comes with a 20 Round Mag by default, so you’ll want to use the Salvo 30 Rnd Fast Mag as soon as you unlock it. 30 rounds isn’t a ton, so the increased reload speed offered by the mag is vital.
Best perks to use with the C58
- Perk 1: Flak Jacket & Tactical Mask
- Perk 2: Gearhead & Scavenger
- Perk 3: Ghost & Ninja
In Cold War’s multiplayer, players will often throw a grenade in front of them to stop your push, but with the Flak Jacket equipped, you can run endure the explosions, while Tactical Mask will keep you stun-free.

As Assault Rifle users play a support role, it’s extremely useful to get Field Mics or Trophy Systems down, and Gearhead allows you to carry two Field Upgrades at a time and recharges them faster. Then, to make sure you can hold on to your C58 for your whole killstreak, Scavenger is a great choice.
And finally, to constantly get the drop on your opponents, Ghost and Ninja will conceal your footsteps and hide you from Spy Planes.
