The best OTs 9 loadout SMG in Call of Duty: Warzone's preview menu introduced in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

Searching for the best OTs 9 loadout in Warzone? Compared to the best SMGs in Warzone, the OTs 9 features some of the lowest recoil we’ve ever seen from this type of weapon. This does come at a cost, however, as the OTs 9 has been designed to use relatively small magazines.

Our loadout focuses on the SMG’s strengths, ensuring the weapon has extremely low recoil while extending the damage range to make the best OTs 9 loadout effective from further distances. If you’re looking for a strong secondary weapon to use on Caldera or Rebirth Island, the OTs 9 definitely needs to be considered as it’s a fantastic SMG pick. Use this weapon alongside the best EM2 loadout to crush enemies at close to mid range.

To unlock the OTs 9, you must complete the following challenge: using SMGs, kill two or more players rapidly in 15 different completed matches. The easiest way to do this in Warzone is to play Plunder – this mode allows players to quit mid-match once you have secured a double kill. If you can find players easily, this method shouldn’t take longer than an hour at most. Alternatively, purchase the Inside Job weapon bundle in the store for 1200 CoD Points.


The best Warzone Pacific OTs 9 loadout is:

  • GRU Suppressor
  • 8.1” Task Force
  • Tiger Team Spotlight
  • No Stock
  • Spetsnaz 40 Rnd

First up, we have the GRU Suppressor which provides huge benefits to the SMG. The effective damage range, vertical recoil, and bullet velocity all see an improvement with this muzzle. The OTs 9 also receives sound suppression, a vital attachment in the late game that ensures your shots won’t be picked up on the radar.

The recoil on the OTs 9 is incredibly low, so we can afford to take a few hits in this area without having to worry about any repercussions. The 8.1” Task Force barrel suits this weapon perfectly as it increases the effective damage range, strafe speed, and bullet velocity. Coupled with the buffs from the muzzle, the OTs 9 is now capable of taking down enemies from medium range.

We’ve gone for the Tiger Team Spotlight to increase the weapon’s mobility – this is essential for sniper support builds when you need to avoid shots from enemy squads. As most of the fights using the OTs 9 will take place at close to medium range, we decided not to include an optic. Instead, go for the No Stock attachment to greatly improve the weapon’s sprint to fire time.

The OTs 9’s biggest weakness is the size of the clips – even with the Spetsnaz 40 Rnd, you only have access to magazines with 40 rounds of ammunition. The time-to-kill speed on this weapon isn’t very fast, so you need to be a steady shot to get the most out of the OTs 9.

That’s everything you need to build the best OTs 9 SMG loadout in Warzone. This weapon will pair nicely with a sniper rifle like the Kar98k or the Swiss K31. With all the Warzone Pacific balance changes in place, definitely read our best loadout drops guide to ensure you’re taking the best weapons to the battlefield.
