The Swiss K31 is Black Ops Cold War’s dominant Sniper Rifle. It’s ideal for quickscoping, so here are the attachments and Perks to run with it in Season 5 to make the best Cold War Swiss K31 loadout.

Call of Duty has some great Sniper Rifles in Season 5, and the Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle has arguably become the go-to choice for most in the game.

The Swiss K31 is designed to be fast. It has a rapid ADS time, quick bolt time, and plenty of bullets in the mag to boot. Not only that, but slap some handy hardware onto the gun, and the Swiss become a sharp and swift killing machine.

We’ve put together the best attachments and Perks to run with the Swiss K31, which will make it perfect for quickscoping and sniping in general in Cold War Season 5.

  • Barrel: 24.9″ Tiger Team
  • Body: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Magazine: 8 Rnd Mag
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap

The best Cold War Swiss K31 loadout is built for quickscoping on Cold War’s smaller maps like Nuketown, but it also packs enough punch to hit some nice longshots.

For our best Cold War Swiss K31 loadout, the 24.9″ Tiger Team barrel completely transforms the Swiss K31. It deals much more damage, so you’ll be able to kill full-health players in only one shot to the chest. To spot enemies at further ranges and dark corners, the Tiger Team Spotlight will increase your Reveal Distance.

To vastly speed up your sprint to fire time and ADS speed, you should run the Raider Stock and Airborne Elastic Wrap. You’ll be able to scope in before the enemies can react, allowing for rapid quickscope kills.

And to give you a few more shots, you should run the 8 Rnd Mag. However, the Tiger Team barrel will reduce this mag size to six, which is still the perfect amount.

Best Perks to run with Cold War Swiss K31 class

We recommend running the Perk Greed Wildcard with the best Cold War Swiss K31 loadout, as you’ll get to equip two perks in each slot.

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket & Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger & Assassin
  • Perk 3: Gung-Ho & Ghost

Lethal and Tactical Equipment will often be the death of you in Cold War lobbies, so Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you alive no matter what the enemy throws at you.

There’s nothing worse than running out of ammo when you’re on a sniping hot streak, so Scavenger will allow you to resupply ammo from dead bodies. And then, you can use the Assassin perk for some extra points and a bigger score when killing enemies on Scorestreaks.

And finally, Gung-Ho will increase your mobility further, letting you reload on the fly, as well as swap weapons faster. To pull off effective flanks, Ghost will keep you hidden from UAVs too.

The Swiss K31 excels at quickscoping at close-medium range. If you haven’t unlocked it yet, Cold War provides some other Sniper Rifles that will be well worth running in Season 5.

The ZRG 20mm is the polar opposite, being slow but dealing an incredible amount of damage. And for something in the middle ground, you can never go wrong with the LW3 Tundra.
