Utilizing a proper SMG loadout is the key to Rebirth Island success and it seems like a forgotten Warzone weapon is once again being viewed as a powerful option.

Warzone players continue to flock to Rebirth Island throughout Warzone Pacific Season 2 thanks to its fast-paced gameplay and close-quarters combat. Due to the nature of most gunfights on the prison island, players tend to opt for an SMG loadout.

Although Vanguard SMGs like the Welgun and Type 100 are popular picks, one forgotten SMG from Black Ops Cold War is experiencing a “rebirth” of its own.

Warzone content creator and Call of Duty expert FaZe Booya decided to revisit the MAC-10 SMG. A recent video of his showcases just how deadly this weapon is with its fast TTK and mobility.

What’s more, Rebirth Island is the perfect playground for the MAC-10 as its strafe speed allows it to strive in tight spaces. Clearing each and every building on Rebirth Island is a simple task with this deadly weapon in hand.

Warzone MAC-10 loadout for Rebirth Island

  • Muzzle: Sound Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

If you have experience using the MAC-10 then you’ll know just how fast this weapon will feel in your hands. It certainly has a unique shape that might take some getting used to but if you’re new to the SMG try it out for a few games before passing judgment.

The STANAG 53 Rnd Drum is preferred to the Fast Mag for the added ADS speed that comes with the attachment. Then the Raider Stock will maximize your speed allowing you to dash from one gunfight to the next.

The Sound Suppressor is necessary as it adds bullet velocity and ADS speed. As you can see, ADS speed is vital for the weapon to function at maximum efficiency. Of course, the MAC-10’s signature strafe speed is enhanced by the 5.9″ Task Force barrel.
