The best PPSh loadout in Warzone

We have two PPSh loadouts to use in Warzone - these loadouts utilise one of the best SMGs in the entire game to create a close range monster

Searching for the best PPSh loadout in Warzone? The PPSh wasn’t very good when it first launched compared to the rest of Warzone’s best SMGs, but the devs made sure it became a meta weapon in Season 5. By drastically nerfing the Armaguerra, H4 Blixen, and the Marco 5, the PPSh was in the perfect position to take over as Warzone’s best SMG.

So, what makes this SMG so special? The PPSh is an excellent close to medium range option thanks to its high bullet velocity and low recoil stats. When you combine all of these important stats together, this makes the PPSh the perfect secondary gun for most loadouts.

The best Call of Duty Warzone PPSh (Vanguard) loadout is:

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 230mm B03P
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 8mm Nambu 71 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Subsonic
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Perk: Steady
  • Perk 2: Quick

To increase the PPSh’s time to kill speed, we’ve gone for the Recoil Booster muzzle which sacrifices accuracy for a faster fire rate. As for the barrel, the Kovalevskaya 230mm B03P makes some weight adjustments to improve the weapon’s hip fire performance. This attachment enhances the PPSh’s hip fire accuracy, hip fire recoil recovery, recoil recovery, and fire rate. It’s not without some downsides, however, as the recoil control and aim down sight speed take a slight hit.

This SMG excels in close-range encounters which makes the Slate Reflector optic an easy choice. Compared to the other meta SMG options, the PPSh needs the Removed Stock option to improve its mobility and hip fire accuracy. While this may negatively impact the gun’s recoil stats, we can make up for this using other attachments.

Another mobility fix, the Mark VI Skeletal underbarrel decreases the gun’s aim down sight time in exchange for recoil control and accuracy. Since Season 5 buffed the 8mm Nambu 71 Round Mags by removing the damage penalty, this is undoubtedly the best option for the PPSh. Choose the Subsonic ammo type to keep all of your shots off the minimap.

The Pine Tar Grip is essential for improving the weapon’s recoil control, though it does slightly impact your aim down sight time. For the perks, go for Steady which improves your movement speed while aiming down sights, and Quick to increase your sprint speed.

Once you’ve managed to build this Warzone PPSh loadout, it’s time to pick a secondary weapon. We highly recommend using the best Pelington 703 loadout as this sniper rifle can easily wipe out enemies from a distance.
