Vanguard’s PPSh-41 has become a more viable pick as a result of the buffs it received in Season 5, and we’ve got the right attachments, Perks, and equipment to make the best loadout for it.

Best Warzone Pacific PPSh-41 loadout attachments

Best Warzone Pacific PPSH-41 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: ZAC 300mm 
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 8mm Nambu 71 Round Mag
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Quick

We’ll start off our Warzone Pacific Season 5 Reloaded PPSh-41 loadout by equipping the Recoil Booster muzzle and ZAC 300MM barrel to boost the weapon’s fire rate, bullet velocity, and recoil control.

Next, we’ll focus on improving the mobility of the weapon with the help of the Removed Stock, Mark VI Skeletal foregrip, Fabric Grip, and Quick perk. The 8mm Nambu 71 Round Mags are a great pick for your ammo after they had their damage penalty removed.

You can improve the bullet velocity and bring down the TTK by adding the Hollow Point rounds. The Slate Reflector is an unobtrusive optic, and Tight Grip keeps the PPSh-41 under control when holding the trigger down.

Best Perks and Equipment to use with Warzone’s PPSh-41

E.O.D Perk in Warzone Pacific
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

Since you’ll be using the PPSh-41 in close-range combat situations, we strongly recommend equipping E.O.D as your first Perk as it will make you more resistant to explosive damage from grenades and thermites.

For the second Perk, you should go with Overkill to pair the PPSh-41 with a long-range weapon like the STG 44, and Amped will allow you to swap between the two guns instantaneously.

As for equipment, we’ve gone for the Throwing Knife to help you immediately finish a downed opponent, and the Stim lets you recover health instantly with an impressive speed boost as an added bonus.
