The Akimbo P890 loadout is wreaking havoc in Season 1 of Warzone 2, so here’s the best loadout equipped with attachments and Perk Package to let you join in on the fun.

With players confined to selecting Perk Packages instead of individual Perks, Overkill has not been a popular pick in Warzone 2. It was practically a standard selection in the original Warzone, but without the ability to choose your own Perks, Warzone 2 players have explored other options.

For this reason, a strong Secondary weapon is essential when building the best Warzone 2 loadouts, and the P890 Handgun is looking like the best option in Season 1.

Thanks to its Akimbo attachment, the P890 is a deadly weapon in Warzone 2, so here’s the best loadout for the pistol.

Best Warzone 2 P890 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: FT Steel Fire
  • Laser: 1mW Pistol Laser
  • Ammunition: .45 Auto Armor Piercing
  • Trigger Action: Bruen Express
  • Rear Grip: Akimbo P890

For starters, the Akimbo P890 attachment is what makes the P890 one of the most broken Warzone 2 weapons in Season 1. Almost all of the top players and streamers have gravitated toward the P890 and it’s thanks to its dual wield capabilities.

The Bruen Express trigger will increase the P890’s fire rate, which will allow you to get off consecutive shots faster. The FT Steel Fire Muzzle and .45 Auto Armor Piercing will offer extra damage range if tuned properly. While you won’t be aiming down sight, the 1mW Pistol Laser will increase your hip-fire accuracy, making it easier to utilize the dual-wield weapons.

Given their ability to destroy enemies at close-range, the P890 is best paired with a long-range AR, LMG, or Sniper Rifle.

  • Perk Package: Specter (Double Time, Tracker, Spotter, Ghost)
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex

For the best Perk Package and Equipment to use with the P890, we suggest equipping the Specter Perk Package as it offers great hunting utility with Double Time, Tracker, and Spotter, with Ghost to hide from UAVs.

The Flash Grenade continues to be the most overpowered equipment in Warzone 2, with its long-lasting white screen effect, and the Semtex is perfect for dishing out extra damage to wounded enemies.

How to unlock P890 in Warzone 2

Luckily for Warzone 2 players, the P890 is automatically unlocked at the start of your journey. All you have to do is level up the P890 Handgun to unlock the ideal attachments above.

If you also own Modern Warfare 2, we recommend using a Double XP Token and jumping into the Season 1 Shoot House playlist where you’ll encounter a ton of enemies at a fast rate. The small map will allow the P890 to shine.

Best Warzone 2 P890 alternatives

As of now, the P890 is being used as the best Secondary weapon in the game for those who don’t wish to utilize Overkill. Given how overpowered they are, the P890 will likely receive a nerf, so we recommend leveling up the X13 Auto or X12 as an alternative.

Of course, if you prefer to use Overkill, running an SMG like the Vaznev is also a fantastic choice for close-range encounters.
