The Bruen Mk9 LMG was a force to be reckoned with in older versions of Warzone and it’s set to take over again after returning in the Season 1 update. Here’s the best Bruen Mk9 loadout in Warzone Season 1, including the attachments, Perks, and Equipment needed for the ideal build.

The Warzone Season 1 update has arrived, bringing the new Urzikstan map and a ton of movement changes from Modern Warfare 3. It also comes with every launch weapon from Sledgehammer Games’ multiplayer, drastically shaking up the meta.

This means meta guns like the MCW Assault Rifle are now live in Warzone. But there’s a familiar face among the new arrivals too, as the Bruen Mk9 LMG has returned to the game for the first time since Warzone Caldera.

So, here’s the best Bruen Mk9 loadout to help you dominate Warzone Season 1.

Best Warzone Bruen Mk9 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Silentfire XG6
  • Underbarrel: Holger Vertical Grip
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
  • Ammunition: 5.56 NATO High Grain Rounds
  • Rear Grip: Stip-40 Grip

We begin our best Bruen Mk9 loadout in Warzone with the Silentfire XG6 Barrel, buffing the LMG’s bullet velocity to make it a monster at long-range, while keeping some of its recoil in check. Next, we’ve doubled down on recoil control with the Holger Vertical Grip and Stip-40 Grip, making it much more manageable over larger distances.

The Bruen Mk9’s iron sights aren’t for everybody, so we’ve gone for the simple and clean MK. 3 Reflector, but this could easily be swapped for your preferred Optic. Finally, the 5.56 NATO High Grain Rounds offer one last boost to the velocity and range, to make this LMG ideal for mowing down far-away squads.

Best Warzone Bruen Mk9 loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 3: Quick Fix
  • Perk 4: Ghost
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade

To complete the best Bruen Mk9 loadout in Warzone, it’s vital to run the ideal Perks. We recommend starting with Double Time to increase your Tactical Sprint duration to make up for the LMG’s lack of mobility, and Sleight of Hand to speed up reloads.

The Bruen promotes an aggressive playstyle, so Quick Fix will offer a nice health boost anytime you down an enemy or apply a plate. Then, Ghost will keep you hidden from UAVs so you can sneak up on players undetected.

When it comes to Equipment, Semtex is perfect for racking up a quick kill, while Flash Grenades disorientate enemies before you move in for the kill.

How to unlock Bruen Mk9 in Warzone

Warzone players can unlock the Bruen Mk9 by hitting Level 31. This can be done by playing battle royale or Resurgence matches within the game, as well as MW3 multiplayer.

While this shouldn’t take too long for those who play regularly, anyone looking to speed up the process can use Double XP Tokens to fly through the ranks.

Best Bruen Mk9 alternatives in Warzone

If you’re a long-range player in Warzone but the Bruen Mk9 isn’t working for you, we recommend switching to the KATT-AMR. This deadly Sniper Rifle can down an enemy in no time with a well-placed shot.

The BAS-B is also a great option for long distances, featuring a steady rate and a high damage output with little recoil.
