Warzone 2’s Basilisk Pistol is deadly at close range due to the popular Akimbo attachment. Here’s the best Basilisk loadout for Warzone 2 with attachments and Perks.

In Warzone 2, there’s an abundance of weapons to choose from. Some are more meta than others, but an important aspect of creating a great loadout is having a solid secondary.

If you’re someone who prefers to utilize a different Perk instead of Overkill, you want to select a strong secondary to cover close-range engagements, and that’s exactly where the Basilisk Handgun comes in. With the Akimbo Basilisk, players can dominate close-quarters gunfights across Al Mazrah, Vondel, and Ashika Island.
