The CX-9 SMG finally arrived last season and is still a great option in Season 6, so here is how to make the best Warzone CX-9 loadout to dominate your enemies.
The CX-9 was released alongside the Sykov Pistol in Season 4, and in Season 6, it’s still a very viable SMG that can shred at close range.
Here are the attachments and perks to run with this SMG to make the best Warzone CX-9 loadout.

Best Warzone CX-9 loadout attachments
- Barrel: CX-38S
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: CX-FR
- Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
- Ammunition: 50 Round Drums
The best Warzone CX-9 loadout is excellent in those close-quarters engagements, but due to the random nature of Warzone, we’ve built it to be a little bit more versatile.
The CX-38S barrel has two significant benefits. It’s already got a Monolithic Suppressor attached, which frees up a slot, and it improves almost every aspect of the weapon. You’ll see the CX-9 has a more effective range, recoil control, and your shots will be hidden from the minimap.

Next, we’ve added the Tac Laser and CX-FR stock to the best Warzone CX-9 loadout. Your CX-9 will now be much quicker, allowing you to snap onto enemies even if they take you by surprise.
The Merc Foregrip is always a solid choice for Modern Warfare SMGs, as it improves both recoil control and hip-fire accuracy for the best Warzone CX-9 loadout. And finally, the 50 Round Drums will allow you to down and kill multiple enemies without reloading when using the best Warzone CX-9 loadout.

- Barrel: CX-38S
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: CX-FA
- Ammunition: 30 Round Mags
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
This CX-9 is built almost purely for speed but with a larger magazine and longer barrel for taking out targets at medium range.
To start, we’ve opted for the CX-38S barrel, which improves almost every aspect of the CX-9. You’ll see a huge boost in damage range, bullet velocity, and even recoil control – while having your shots suppressed. The only downside is a slower ADS speed, which we’ll correct with the rest of the attachments.
Modern Warfare’s engagements usually take place in the confines of 6v6 maps, so you want a bit more speed with your weapon. To do this, we’ve opted for the Tac Laser and CX-FA stock. With these, your ADS speed, movement, and weapon stability will see a welcome improvement.
And finally, we’ve added the 30 Round Mags and Sleight of Hand Perk. The 30 Round Mag gives a solid boost to magazine size without slowing you down too much, and Sleight of Hand vastly increases your reload speed to keep you in the fight. If you want more bullets in your mag, you can always take the 50 Round Drums instead.
Best perks to use with CX-9 class
Best Warzone CX-9 Perks
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
E.O.D will help you survive a barrage of explosives, keeping you in the fight at all times. Overkill will allow you to take the CX-9 alongside a long-range weapon such as the Krig 6, and then you can take Ghost from your next loadout to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Finally, the Amped Perk allows you to switch between weapons quickly, so you’re never caught defenseless.
Best Modern Warfare CX-9 Perks
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Ghost
- Perk 3: Battle Hardened
Again, E.O.D is vital to ensuring you don’t get taken out by a well-placed Frag Grenade or Semtex.

Then, the Ghost Perk will make sure you can always remain stealthy when an enemy pops a UAV.
Last but not least, Battle-Hardened significantly reduces the effect of Stuns and Flashbangs, so you’re never rendered defenseless by Tactical Grenades.
Most recent CX-9 buffs and nerfs
The best Warzone CX-9 loadout was on the receiving end of a bug and nerf in the August 5 update for the Call of Duty battle royale, which caught plenty of players by surprise, considering the weapon had only been in the game for a short time before Raven Software rolled out an update for it.

You can find all of the changes the August 5 update made to this SMG below:
- Increased mid damage range from 20 to 21
- Increased Headshot Multiplier from 1.4 to 1.45
How to unlock the CX-9 in Warzone & Modern Warfare
The CX-9 is a Modern Warfare weapon, so you won’t be able to unlock or use it in Black Ops Cold War. Luckily, it has an easily unlock requirement: Get 2 Longshot Kills while using an SMG in 5 different matches.
Because this is Modern Warfare, you don’t need to finish the match either. You can get two longshot kills with an SMG, back out, and repeat until you’ve unlocked the weapon.

CoD devs confirm “unplayable” Modern Warfare is finally going to get fixed
Modern Warfare was branded “unplayable” after the Warzone Pacific update broke the game, but Call of Duty devs have now promised fixes.
Although two years old, Modern Warfare still has a dedicated player base who were furious after December 8’s Warzone Pacific update made the game “unplayable” for many. A month later, CoD’s developers have finally confirmed they’re working on fixing it.
Call of Duty: Warzone is still tied to Modern Warfare so, whatever happens in Warzone, affects Modern Warfare. This has caused several issues in the past, with players unable to change their loadout mid-game and the FMJ Perk being broken.
It appeared to only get worse with the Warzone Pacific Season 1 update which completely broke Modern Warfare. It was labeled “literally unplayable” as players were suffering a plethora of bugs and crashes, and some couldn’t even launch the game.
Call of Duty’s developers have finally acknowledged the issues and confirmed they’re working on fixing them.
Modern Warfare players have been complaining that Modern Warfare is completely broken since the new Warzone map arrived. They’ve said that they can’t complete a match because of disconnects and crashes, and missing data packs are stopping some from launching the game entirely.
Raven Software hadn’t acknowledged the issues, and Modern Warfare players were worried they’d been left out to dry. But, Call of Duty’s devs have now addressed the concerns.
“Our teams are hard at work addressing the issues that are being experienced across Vanguard, Warzone, and Modern Warfare,” tweeted the Call of Duty account on January 13, 2022.
They said that “updates are being deployed as quickly as possible” but gave no timeframe for Modern Warfare’s fixes being implemented.
Many players were delighted that their complaints had finally been acknowledged, but said “actions speak louder than words” and other statements to that effect.
We’ll just need to wait and see how and when Call of Duty plans to fix Modern Warfare’s serious issues. They also recommend you follow Infinity Ward’s account, so perhaps these updates will come from Infinity Ward.

Here’s everything we know about CoD 2022 including its title, the release date, maps, game modes, and platforms.
There’s a ton of anticipation for Modern Warfare 2, and here’s everything that we know about Call of Duty 2022 so far, including the release date, a new mode called DMZ, and the game’s platforms.
Call of Duty fans are always eager to learn more about the next big title that will be released, and there is plenty of anticipation for the upcoming Modern Warfare 2. Information about the game is scarce but we do have some news to share.
While the developers haven’t revealed anything about Call of Duty 2022, we’ve been able to find out details like the release date, new game modes, platforms, and some interesting leaks.
Here’s everything we know about Call of Duty 2022.
- Call of Duty 2022 title
- Modern Warfare 2 release date
- Modern Warfare 2 maps
- CoD 2022 Warzone integration
- Modern Warfare 2 modes
- Modern Warfare 2 platforms
- Modern Warfare 2 campaign leaks
What is Call of Duty 2022’s title?
This information lines up with what Charlie INTEL has also heard about the 2022 Call of Duty game, although we’d caution that Activision can change the name at any point leading to the reveal.
Call of Duty 2022: Modern Warfare 2 release date
At the time of writing, it’s believed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be arriving sometime around November 2022. However, there is no exact release date confirmed for the game yet.
Going by Activision’s record, most previous titles in this popular franchise were released between October and November, so we expect to see Call of Duty 2022 come around the same time.
We’ll keep checking for any official release date announcements by the developers and will be sure to update this article once we have more concrete information.
Call of Duty 2022: Modern Warfare 2 maps
Both leakers RalphsValve and Tom Henderson claim that classic Modern Warfare 2 (2009) maps will arrive in CoD 2022.
In a video covering everything known about CoD 2022 so far, Henderson said that these maps have been taken from the scrapped Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, of which only the campaign released.
Here are the returning Modern Warfare 2 maps:
Favela would pit players against each other in enclosed areas while Terminal provided some excellent sniping opportunities to Call of Duty players during long-range combat situations.
Highrise led to tons of 360, no-scope montages and birthed several world-famous CoD clans and Shipment is so popular that it’s currently still featured in titles like Call of Duty: Vanguard.
However, these are currently just leaks, and we might see the addition of entirely different maps in the final game once it arrives.
Call of Duty 2022 Warzone integration
Call of Duty 2022 will integrate with Warzone in the same way that Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard has, but is expected to bring a brand-new map.

Alongside the leaked DMZ mode for Modern Warfare 2, VGC claimed that CoD 2022 will launch with a brand-new Warzone map consisting of classic maps from the Modern Warfare franchise. This map will reportedly also be used for the DMZ mode.
The integration should also bring across all of CoD 2022’s weapons.
Call of Duty 2022 game modes
Tom Henderson claims that Modern Warfare 2 will come with a brand-new game mode – DMZ. While we don’t know exactly what the game mode will entail, the leaker described this mode as “MWII’s take on Escape From Tarkov.”
Henderson believes the mode will have been in development for over four years by the time Modern Warfare 2 releases, and you’ll drop into several locations and will have to plunder through abandoned homes, buildings, vehicles, crates, and corpses. He also said that the area has been made up of maps from the original MW2 which act as POIs, and should also act as the new Warzone map.
From this description, it seems that DMZ will be one of the most grounded game modes in the upcoming title. Hopefully, it will make for an intense experience for Call of Duty 2022 players.
Attackers v. Defenders
Leaker RalphsValve has also claimed that MW2 will feature a Rainbow Six Siege-inspired mode called Attackers v. Defenders. However, leakers such as Tom Henderson have disputed the claim.
This mode will see players attack and defend objective sites while utilizing “hidden locations, booby traps and cameras.”
Attackers v. Defenders would have a revamped health system, and players are able to assign each of their squad members separate roles such as “Squad Leader.”
However, prominent CoD leakers TheMW2Ghost and Tom Henderson claim their sources say “it was a scrapped mode from MW19 and they haven’t heard or seen anything regarding it coming to MW II.”
Henderson did clarify that “It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not coming, but I’m inclined to believe people working on the project/or with very good connections at the studio.”
These two modes are only leaks or rumors at this point, so have yet to be confirmed. We’ll be sure to update this article as soon as we learn some more official information about Modern Warfare 2’s game modes.
Call of Duty 2022: Modern Warfare 2 platforms
According to Henderson, Modern Warfare 2 will be available on both current-gen and past-generation consoles.
“It’s currently believed that this will be the last Call of Duty coming to past generation consoles, but it will ultimately depend on the console market conditions,” Tom Henderson tweeted.
Call of Duty 2022: Modern Warfare 2 campaign leaks
Back in September, individuals on Reddit and Medium blog noticed a back-end server opening into NVIDIA’s GeForce technology site that let them see the games being tested out on their servers.
One of the games by Activision and Infinity Ward was listed as “Project Cortez,” which is a possible codename for Modern Warfare 2. After this, some new potential plot details for Call of Duty 2022 were shared by VGC.
According to the leak, “Modern Warfare’s sequel will include a campaign involving US special forces fighting a covert war against Columbian drug cartels.” This was also backed up by Tom Henderson.
Henderson has also said that the AI will see significant improvements from previous CoD games, where they’ll act realistically to getting shot.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and this information has yet to be verified by the developers themselves. Until they officially announce something, you should take this with a grain of salt.

Modern Warfare 2 leaks claim Rainbow Six Siege mode arrives in CoD 2022
According to leaks, 2022’s Modern Warfare will bring a Rainbow Six Siege-inspired mode called “Attackers v. Defenders.”
Leaks claim that Call of Duty 2022, set to be Modern Warfare 2, will feature a Rainbow Six Siege-inspired game mode where players must attack and defend utilizing “hidden locations, booby traps and cameras.” However, other leakers have now disputed this claim.
Although Vanguard is still in its first season of content, players are desperate to see what Infinite Ward are cooking up for Call of Duty 2022. It’s set to be a successor to Modern Warfare (2019) and will take the FPS franchise back to the modern day.
It’s already believed to have an Escape from Tarkov-inspired mode, but new leaks have claimed that it’ll also feature Rainbow Six Siege’s popular attacking and defending mode.
While RalphsValve believes this mode will arrive in Modern Warfare 2, known leakers Tom Henderson and TheMW2Ghost claim their sources say “it was a scrapped mode from MW19 and they haven’t heard or seen anything regarding it coming to MW II.”
Henderson clarified that “It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not coming, but I’m inclined to believe people working on the project/or with very good connections at the studio.”
The mode would work how it sounds, with players having to attack or defend an objective on the map. Defenders must “methodize a plan to slow down, or entirely halt the Attackers,” while the Attackers are working against the clock. RalphsValve said that the map will be similar to CoD 4’s CQB Test, but much larger.
RalphsValve also claimed that this mode will assign Attackers a role in their team, with one player designated as “Team Leader.” There will be a “Debrief period” between each round where players can rework their team dynamic.
Attackers v. Defenders will reportedly have plenty of mechanics that are new to Call of Duty. These include an expanded health system, fortification, and plenty of new Siege-inspired gadgets.
This new health system features three conditions, depending on how much damage players receive: Minor, Critically Injured, or Mortally Wounded. Attackers can use “Tourniquets” to pull off a lengthy revive, however.
Also, in true Rainbow Six fashion, Defenders can fortify their position, as well as use “hidden locations, boobytraps and cameras” to slow down the Attackers.

These leaks have been disputed and Ralphsleaks has also been accused of faking leaks in the past, so we recommend taking them with a heavy grain of salt.
We don’t expect to hear any concrete Modern Warfare 2 details until later in 2022 but you can also check out Tom Henderson’s claim that classic Modern Warfare 2 maps will appear in CoD 2022.
