Four best MAC-10 & Diamatti alternatives for Warzone Season 1
The MAC-10 and akimbo Diamattis are used by almost every player in Warzone Season 1, but if you fancy using something different, here are the best alternatives.
Although the MAC-10 and akimbo Diamattis were nerfed on January 6, many players felt the changes weren’t enough. The weapons are still used in almost every loadout, so the loot pool has remained stale.
So here are the best secondary weapons you can use instead of the MAC-10 or akimbo Diamattis in Warzone Season 1.
Cold War AK-74u
You can get your CoD 4 nostalgia on by using the fan-favorite AK-74u. Although you could convert an AK-47 into a ’74u in the Gunsmith, it wasn’t the real deal.
Now, you can bring this fan-favorite weapon into Warzone. It’s one of the best weapons in Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer and it’s also a highly effective secondary in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.
It was the range potential to outgun either the MAC-10 or Diamattis so try to stay away from CQB situations and you’ll have a great time using the AK-74u. Check out our guide for the best attachments here.
Cold War MP5
Before the R9-0 became the Warzone meta, Modern Warfare’s MP5 was one of the most used secondary weapons in the game. With incredible accuracy and decent range potential, the MP5 was the go-to weapon for players of all skill levels. Black Ops Cold War has its own version of the MP5 which was added to Warzone with the integration in December.
The new MP5 has a faster TTK compared to its MW counterpart, so it’s well worth using. Either MP5 is viable, but we’ve been using Modern Warfare’s MP5 for over a year now, so why not try something different? Use attachments that buff the MP5s mobility and recoil control, and you’ll be onto a winner.
Modern Warfare R9-0
In a meta-changing patch, the MAC-10 and akimbo Diamattis were added to Warzone, and the R9-0 was removed from its throne. It received a small nerf which lowered its damage at range and made it so you have to land more pellets to get the kill.
If you’re in extremely close quarters and you hit your shots, the R9-0 is still an incredibly powerful shotgun. The one-shot kill range was only lowered by about a meter, so as long as you’re accurate, you’ll find the R9-0 dominant in CQB. Check out the meta R9-0 loadout here.
Modern Warfare AS-VAL
Although the AS-VAL is an Assault Rifle, it has one of the highest time-to-kills in Warzone. With the Diamattis receiving a nerf on January 6, the VAL has become even better.
Pair it with a long-range weapon like a sniper or a Tactical Rifle, and you’ll have an excellent close-range weapon.

So if you’re tired of Warzone Season 1’s meta, here are the weapons you should try out and you might just find your new favorite.
