What are the best SMGs in Warzone? SMGs are not often considered a great weapon choice in Warzone thanks to the battle royale game’s large maps, but once you get the range right on an SMG, their light weight and increased maneuverability make them some of the best guns in the game.

Some of the best Warzone loadouts include SMGs for this reason. In fact, we’ve never had more fun than running around Rebirth Island with an SMG and a mid-range sniper. That’s pretty much what we suggest with all of the below Warzone SMG loadouts, so equip one of these with the attachments we suggest below and you’ll be ready for close-range and long-distance combat across the latest Warzone map, Urzikstan.

Best SMGs in Warzone Urzikstan

The best SMGs in Call of Duty Warzone are:

  • Striker
  • Rival 9
  • Lachmann Shroud
  • ISO 9mm

The Striker, one of the best Warzone SMGs.


The Striker is one of the best and most satisfying SMGs in Warzone right now, and with the loadout below, it can even deal significant damage from further distances compared to most SMGs. Paired with a sniper rifle, this SMG with its fast aim down sights (ADS) speed and maneuverability is perfect for use on Urzikstan. Here’s the best Striker loadout for Warzone:

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor S
  • Barrel: Striker Elite Long Barrel
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
  • Optic: SZ Mini
  • Stock: No Stock

The Rival 9, one of the best Warzone SMGs.

Rival 9

The Rival 9 is another meta favorite of the newest Warzone SMGs. While this loadout doesn’t have the range of the Striker above, it’s very lightweight and gives you incredible movement speed while carrying and using it, making it ideal for traversing the massive Urzikstan map. Due to the lower range of the Rival 9, we’d still recommend pairing it with a sniper rifle, but one with an increased range and which performs better at medium range, and suggest our favorite Longbow loadout. The best Warzone Rival 9 loadout, though, is:

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor S
  • Barrel: Rival 38E Fire Starter
  • Underbarrel: FTAC MSP-98 Handstop
  • Optic: SZ Mini
  • Rear Grip: Rival Vice Assault Grip

The Lachmann Shroud, one of the best Warzone SMGs.

Lachmann Shroud

If you prefer something with a laser, this Lachmann Shroud loadout is for you, dealing massive damage with incredible accuracy. This is probably the SMG loadout with the worst range of the guns in this list, so if you prefer to pair it with an assault rifle over a sniper rifle, then the damage and accuracy of this gun at short range make it an ideal secondary, thanks to the best Lachmann Shroud Warzone loadout listed here:

  • Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10
  • Ammo: 9mm Sub Op
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Optic: Slimline pro

The ISO 9mm, one of the best Warzone SMGs.

ISO 9mm

This ISO 9mm loadout offers a different strategy to the rest of the SMGS and is inspired by the Necroplasm Blueprint from the Warzone 2 Season 6 battle pass. Whether you’ve got the blueprint or not, we’ve tweaked the attachments slightly to improve the handling for running about Urzikstan. Range suffers for it, but still manages a kill at medium range, especially with the increased magazine capacity. Pair the ISO 9mm loadout below with the Longbow or a long-range AR for a solid Warzone setup.

  • Muzzle: T51R Billeted Brake S
  • Barrel: 7″ Ex-Raptor V2
  • Underbarrel: OP X9 Foregrip
  • Optic: SZ Mini
  • Magazine: 50-Round Drum
