The M19 is a decent secondary choice in Warzone Season 5, so we thought it would be a great idea to show off a loadout you can use to get the most out of it.

There are some pretty good secondary weapons in Warzone Season 5, from the Renetti pistols to the Kali Sticks.

However, the M19 has been revealed as one of the fastest close-range TTK weapons currently in Warzone Season 5, according to JGOD, giving it newfound popularity.

Here is how to make the best Warzone M19 loadout to take down all of the enemies you encounter on Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

  • Barrel: XRK L Super
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Trigger Action: Lightweight Trigger
  • Ammunition: 32 Round Mags
  • Perk: Akimbo

The best Warzone M19 loadout is built to be a beast at close range so that you have close-quarters combat covered in your Ghost class, even outgunning some of the strongest SMGs in the game.

The loadout focuses less on increasing the M19’s fire rate, damage, and range with the Akimbo perk. The strength of the XRK L Super barrel helps to accomplish this, and then 5mW Laser enhances the pistol’s hip-fire accuracy.

The Lightweight Trigger is instrumental in the weapon’s improved fire rate, and the extended 32 Round Mags are perfect for allowing the player to get away a few more shots.

Obviously, the Akimbo perk is a requirement to be able to wield two of the M19 Pistols to quicken the TTK and ultimate damage output from close range.

Best perks to run with Warzone m19 class

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

You’ll spend a lot of time in enemies’ faces while using the best Warzone M19 loadout, which means you’re in prime range to get taken out by explosives. Running E.O.D will greatly reduce explosive damage, meaning you can run through a bombardment of explosives to secure the kill.

The M19 Pistol is a secondary weapon, so you don’t need Overkill to combine it with a primary weapon. Ghost will hide you from the minimap and Heartbeat Sensors, which is invaluable in Warzone.

As you’ll only be using this sidearm when fighting up close, you’ll need to run a weapon for medium-long range. Amped will allow you to rapidly change your weapons, getting the right gun out for any situation.

Most recent M19 buffs and nerfs

The M19 is still one of the best pistols players can use in the Call of Duty battle royale. However, it was on the receiving end of a couple of nerfs in the August 16 update.

These nerfs were only for when players have Akimbo equipped, so the changes did not affect it when it is being used as a single pistol. You can find all of the latest changes for the M19 below:

  • Maximum Damage decreased from 33 to 29
  • Mid Damage decreased from 28 to 25
  • Minimum Damage decreased from 23 to 20

How to unlock the M19

This is best completed in the Hardcore mode of Modern Warfare’s multiplayer but can also easily be completed in Plunder.

Best alternatives

The best Warzone M19 loadout excels in close-range combat, but if you’re looking for something similar, the AS VAL melts players at close range as well.

Also, if you’re looking for other pistols, the akimbo Diamattis will provide similar firepower.

The best Warzone M19 loadout will continue to be a great choice for Ghost classes in Season 5, so this Pistol is well worth ranking up.
