Warzone has had some iconic weapons over the years, and CoD expert Kris “FaZe Swagg” Lamberson has revealed how to bring back a fan-favorite SMG from the Verdansk days with “insane” range.

Warzone players are spoilt for choice when it comes to building their loadouts in Season 1, as the game features the full pool of weapons from both Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3. As always though, a handful of guns have risen to the top and become the meta picks, like the WSP Swarm and BAS-B.

But despite the large arsenal of weapons, many fans are always looking for a way to bring back their favorite metas from previous versions of Warzone, especially Verdansk.

Luckily, CoD streamer and expert FaZe Swagg has revealed a loadout that recreates one of the most notorious SMGs from the Black Ops Cold War era.

In his January 10 video, Swagg revealed that the WSP-9 can be built to resemble the Milano 821, an SMG that dominated Verdansk after a buff to its damage range.

“It was literally an SMG that had an AR range. It had the most insane bullet velocity, it had taken over Warzone completely – it was a fan-favorite gun,” Swagg explained. “In Warzone 3 you can actually use the Milano, you can put [on] a 3x scope and have it as a great Sniper support.”

He went on to call this version of the Milano using the WSP-9 “one of the most satisfying guns to ever come into play.” Check out Swagg’s Milano 821 loadout in Warzone below.

Swagg’s Milano 821 loadout for Warzone Season 1

  • Barrel: WSP Infiltrator Integrated Suppressor
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5X
  • Stock: WSP Classics Factory Stock
  • Rear Grip: Marauder Grip
  • Conversion Kit: Broodmother .45 Kit

The secret to Swagg’s WSP-9 loadout in Warzone Season 1 is the Broodmother .45 Kit, which offers a “ridiculous” buff to damage range, bullet velocity, damage, and gun kick control, which recreates the Milano’s iconic range.

This pairs perfectly with the Corio Eagleseye 2.5X, which allows players to make use of the Assault Rifle-like range and hold their own at longer distances.

Swagg also mentioned that with the scope attached, the WSP-9 even looks like the Milano from Black Ops Cold War. If you’re looking for a deadly throwback loadout in Warzone Season 1, give this a try in your next match.
