What is the best HRM-9 loadout for Warzone? One of our favorite loadout combinations in Warzone is an SMG and a long-distance weapon, like a sniper rifle or ranged battle rifle. You want a loadout that can offer something in any fight, and a well-balanced SMG is one side of that coin.

With that in mind, the HRM-9 is one of the best SMGs for any Warzone mode, but particularly the smaller and busier Resurgence maps. If you’re dropping into the new Warzone map, Rebirth Island, for example, kit yourself out with the best HRM-9 loadout below and you’ll have no problem taking out nearby enemies in an instant.

  • Muzzle: ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider
  • Stock: Folding Stock
  • Barrel: Thorn-90 Barrel
  • Underbarrel: XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop
  • Magazine: 50-round drum

Since the standard recoil control is fairly wild on the HRM-9, we’re starting with the ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider muzzle, which positively impacts both vertical and horizontal recoil. This muzzle also shortens radar pings, so while it doesn’t make you completely invisible, your shooting won’t show up on enemy minimaps for as long as it usually would. The Folding Stock further increases recoil control, while both slightly reduce your aim down sight speed.

Despite this incredible recoil buff, this of course isn’t enough to make this weapon perfect, so we’re adding the Thorn-90 barrel next. This barrel slightly nerfs your recoil control, but not nearly enough to counter the change made by the muzzle. That is offset by a great improvement to your ADS, as well as sprint speed and sprint to fire speed, which are two essential requirements for getting quick kills. Speaking of mobility, we’re then adding the XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop underbarrel to further improve ADS and sprint to fire speed, as well as aim walking speed and movement speed.

Finally, given the rapid fire of any SMG, we’re increasing the mag capacity with the 50-round drum. Despite these changes to recoil control, the speed of the HRM-9 still leaves its accuracy a little wild, so the more ammo you have before having to reload, the better.

There you have our best Warzone HRM-9 loadout. As we said, we recommend pairing this powerful SMG with something with a longer range, so try out the best SOA Subverter loadout or our favorite Warzone sniper rifles. Alternatively, check out our best Warzone guns guide for more options.
