Looking for the best Sykov loadout in Warzone Pacific? When this pistol was first added to Warzone back in Season 3, the akimbo build dominated the battle royale game for a few days as it overran Verdansk. Those days may be long gone, but this weapon is still worth using on Caldera and Rebirth Island if you use the correct attachments.

We’ve gone for the stand alone version of the Sykov which boasts 80 round magazines, ensuring you never run out of bullets in the middle of a fight. Compared to other pistols in Warzone, the Sykov excels thanks to its SMG-like abilities, allowing you to blast enemies away at close range. This means you don’t have to run the Overkill perk, instead just equip the Sykov and let the pistol do all your close range dirty work.

The fully automatic Sykov is a lethal weapon up close, as long as you use the correct loadout to minimise recoil. Here’s everything you need to build the best Sykov loadout in Warzone.

BEST WARZONE SYKOV LOADOUT

The best Warzone Sykov loadout is:

  • Sorokin 140mm Auto
  • 80 Round Drums
  • VLK Prizrak
  • Heavyweight Double-Action
  • 5mW Laser

To play to the Sykov’s natural strengths, we want to equip the Sorokin 140mm Auto barrel as this allows the pistol to fire fully automatic. The barrel also increases the fire rate of the Sykov, making it much faster to take down enemies. There are some downsides, however, including a slight hit to the weapon’s hip fire accuracy and recoil control. Fortunately, the magazine upgrade should counteract this easily enough.

The biggest upgrade to the Sykov you can make is the addition of 80 Round Drums. Though the attachment says it hurts the pistol’s movement speed and sprint to fire time, this seems negligible compared to what you stand to gain from the larger magazines With 80 bullets at your disposal, these massive magazines transform the Sykov from a pistol to an SMG.

The Sykov excels when running and gunning, so we’d recommend attaching the VLK Prizrak rear grip. Increasing the sprint to fire speed on the Sykov is crucial as it allows you to sprint through dangerous areas without worrying about nearby enemies. You can’t sprint and fire in Warzone, but this loadout is as close as you can get to achieving that impossible task.

In this non-akimbo loadout, we went for the Heavyweight Double-Action trigger action which increases the gun’s aim down sight speed. Aiming down the sights of the Sykov is something we never thought we’d have to do, but the latest nerf has forced our hand. Finally, the 5mW laser is the cherry on top of the heavily iced cake. This attachment provides upgrades in the exact areas we need: hip fire accuracy and sprint to fire speed. Sure, the laser is visible to enemies, but it doesn’t matter when that laser is pointing straight at them.

And that’s all you need to build the best Sykov loadout in Warzone Pacific. If you’re looking for a great gun to pair this pistol with, the best ZRG loadout allows you to cover close range and long distances. Likewise, the best M16 loadout is what most people will opt for these days, as this tactical rifle provides powerful bursts at great distances.
