Nicholas Sakadelis

If you’re trying to find the best loadout for Express Remastered in Black Ops Cold War, you’ve come to the right place.

Express from Black Ops 2 returns in Cold War and is just as we remember it. It’s a perfect 1:1 remaster of the original. You can see some of the comparisons by clicking here.

With that said, let’s get you properly kit out to destroy your enemies on the battlefield.


The XM4 is a highly powerful and mobile Assault Rifle. For this loadout, we’ll be utilizing the Gunfighter wildcard for extra attachments. With this specific combination, you’ll have an XM4 for all gunfights, with fast mobility and large magazines for taking down multiple targets.

  • Magazine: Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag
  • Barrel: 13.7″ Takedown
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Break 5.56
  • Body: SOF Target Designator
  • Stock: Raider Pad


Alright, we get it. You’re the rush-happy player. You like to jump around corners and make flashy plays. Those pesky Assault Rifles are too slow for you. Well, this AK74u is just your thing with its fast aim down sight speed, and high damage.

  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
  • Magazine: VDV 50 Round Fast Mag
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Barrel: 10.3″ Task Force
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock


If you’re into high damage weapons with a sweet spot of medium-range, we’ve found your match. If we could explain Black Ops Cold War’s AK-47 in simple terms: it hits hard. Real hard.

  • Magazine: VDV 50 Round
  • Barrel: 18.2″ VDV Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock


You’re going to need a reliable sidearm out there. The 1911 is as good as it gets for a quick sidearm. We highly recommend this pistol for finishing off enemies, or even using it as a primary weapon replacement when you’re out of ammo.

  • Handle: Dropshot Wrap
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake .45 APC
  • Magazine: 12 Round Speed Mag
  • Barrel: 6.83″ Extended
  • Body: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight

Perks and Wildcard

Here are the best perks to run with these weapons. Note that if a weapon is using the gunfighter wildcard, you’ll only be able to choose 3. For the AK-47 and AK-74u, we recommend running the perk Greed.

  • Perk 1
    • Flak Jacket
    • Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2
    • Scavenger
    • Gearhead
  • Perk 3
    • Ghost
    • Ninja

These perks will help you remain silent while maneuvering the map, and will also keep you safe from tactical and lethal grenades. Now that you’ve got your loadout, get out there and take down your enemies!
