  • Stock: Otrezat Stock
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

We’ll start the best Warzone Vaznev-9k loadout by buffing the weapon’s damage range and bullet velocity with the help of the KAS-1 381mm barrel. Then, you can increase the weapon’s mobility with the FSS OLE-V Laser, allowing you to finesse nearby enemies.

The Otrezat Stock and the True-Tac Grip will also improve your mobility by buffing the sprint, aim walking, sprint to fire, and ADS speeds. Finally, we went with the 45 Round Mag, so you can take down multiple enemies before having to reload.

To improve the effectiveness of the best Warzone Vaznev-9k loadout, we picked Double Time to enhance your mobility, especially in maps like Urzikstan. Pair this with Sleight of Hand to swiftly reload your weapon.
