Black Ops Cold War Season 4 is spoiled with world-class SMGs that can rip the opposition to shreds. The Milano 821 is one of those guns, and this Cold War loadout maximizes its potency with the best perks and attachments.

SMGs have had a fascinating time during CoD: Cold War with the likes of the MP5 dominating the meta early on. Since then, the AK-74u has been a constant presence in online lobbies, the PPSH-41 has been a constant menace, and the LC10 takes the number two spot on our best Cold War guns Tier list.

But the Milano 821 is now in the hunt for SMG supremacy, and this friendlier version of the MAC-10 might just be what players are looking for to increase their K/D in CoD: Cold War.

Best Cold War Milano 821 loadout attachments

To ensure you get the most of Cold War’s Milano, ensure you have the Gunfighter wildcard equipped to increase your maximum attachments for the best Cold War Milano 821 loadout.

  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: SOCOM Eliminator
  • Barrel: 10.1″ Reinforced Heavy
  • Body: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: 45 Rnd Drum
  • Handle: Speed Tape
  • Stock: Wire Stock

To clean up the iron sights, we are first going to stick the Microflex LED optic on top of the Milano. Next, the SOCOM Eliminator will greatly reduce the gun’s biggest enemy – vertical recoil. Some slight mobility reductions are coming to follow now as we slap on the 10.1″ Reinforced Heavy barrel to massively boost its damage range and bullet velocity.

Your accuracy without aiming is given a hefty boost thanks to the SWAT 5mw Laser Sight body, and the Field Agent Grip is an all-around recoil reducer.

To offer some more forgiveness if you have a wild 1v1, the 45 Rnd Drum will allow you some extra shots when using the best Cold War Milano loadout. Whereas the Speed Tape will increase its ADS time, and the Wire Stock will get your eyes down those sights quicker after sprinting.

Best perks to use with Cold War Milano 821 class

  • Perk 2: Scavenger
  • Perk 3: Gung-Ho

Paranoia is a perfect accompaniment for the player in a rush that darts from point to point and increases their chances of being seen.

Scavenger will help you to recoup some of the mags that you’ve chewed through en-route to a sizable killstreak, and Gung-Ho allows speedier movement and weapon switching to fit with the Milano perfectly.
