The Aim Op-V4 is a personal preference, and it’s an easy one-zoom attachment with a nice clean sight, and the 7.62 High Velocity rounds are there to make hitting far-off targets feel easier.

Best Perks & Equipment for Warzone 2 RPK loadout

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal: Drill Charge
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade

Double Time lets you move around the map much faster, and Overkill lets you grab a powerful SMG, such as the Vaznev-9k, at the same time. Then, Fast Hands will keep you mobile while using a heavy LMG like the RPK, and Ghost hides you from any UAVs or Heartbeat Sensors.

For Equipment, we choose the Drill Charge as it can burrow its way through walls and help you flush out campers, whereas the Flash Grenade can blind a player for several seconds, giving you ample opportunity to take them out.
