Warzone Pacific OTs 9 loadout

The OTs 9 SMG is another meta pick in Warzone Pacific’s huge arsenal of weaponry, so here are the best attachments and Perks to make the best Warzone OTs 9 loadout and maximize its potential in Season 1.

Black Ops Cold War’s OTs 9 remains a great choice to consider when it comes to a powerful close-quarters weapon in Warzone Pacific Season 1.

This fast-firing SMG boasts a highly competitive time to kill, so you can use it to dominate your opponents in close-range combat – especially on the confines of Rebirth Island

We have all of the attachments and Perks you should run to make the best Warzone Pacific OTs 9 loadout.

Best Warzone OTs 9 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 8.1″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Ammunition: VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag

The best Warzone OTs 9 loadout is built to dominate at close range but will be better suited for Solos and Duo matches because of its smaller magazine size.

To start the best Warzone OTs 9 loadout, we’ve opted for the GRU Suppressor. This is the standard for most SMG builds because of its massive increase in bullet velocity, range, and recoil control while keeping you off the minimap when firing.

Next, the 8.1″ Task Force barrel further increases this range while boosting strafe speed. Its only downside is that it will make the OTs kick more, but it’s perfect for a close-range build.

As this is a close-range build, speed and mobility are key. Combining the Tiger Team Spotlight and the KGB Skeletal Stock will vastly improve your sprint to fire and aim walk moving speed, making you a tough target.

Finally, to get the largest magazine size possible, you should use the VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag which also gives a much faster reload.

Best Perks & Equipment to use with OTs 9 class

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stun Grenades

To start, you want to use E.O.D to survive any explosive damage, which is necessary when using an SMG up-close.

Then, you want to use Overkill to pair the OTs 9 with the Bren or Swiss K31. Afterward, you want to take Ghost from your next loadout to hide from Heartbeat Sensors and UAVs.

Amped is a great choice for Amped for our final Perk, as it allows you to switch weapons much faster and makes sure you do not get caught switching weapons when an enemy begins to fire at you.

For Equipment, we recommend combining the Throwing Knife and Stun Grenades. The Throwing Knife is perfect to quickly finish off downed enemies, and the Stuns will almost render your opponent powerless.

Most recent OTs 9 buffs and nerfs in Warzone

Raven Software realized that the OTs 9 was extremely powerful, so gave it a fairly significant nerf in one of Warzone Pacific’s first updates.

The December 9 update reduced its maximum damage and headshot multiplier, making it more in line with the game’s other SMGs.

Here are all the recent changes to the OTs 9:

  • OTs 9 (BOCW)
    • Maximum Damage decreased to 30, down from 31
    • Headshot Damage Multiplier decreased to 1.33, down from 1.52

How to unlock the OTs 9 in Warzone

Unlocking the OTs 9 is relatively simple but time-consuming, requiring you to complete at least 15 different matches.

This is the challenge you will need to complete:

  • Using SMGs, kill 2 or more players rapidly in 15 different completed matches.

We recommend jumping into either Plunder or Rebirth Island, where you’ll have many more opportunities to get two SMG kills in quick succession.

Best alternatives to Warzone’s OTs 9

If you haven’t unlocked the OTs 9 yet or are looking for something with more ammo for squad matches, there are plenty of viable choices besides the best Warzone OTs 9 loadout.

The Bullfrog’s large magazine size makes it a competitive choice in any squad mode, and you can’t go wrong with the new hip-fire PPSh loadout that’s been dominating the game.

The FARA 83 remains an excellent AR in Warzone Pacific, and here are the top attachments and Perks to make the best FARA loadout.

Published

on

The FARA 83 Assault Rifle is reemerging as one of the best weapons in Warzone, and you can further improve it with the right attachments and perks to make the best Warzone Pacific FARA 83 loadout in Season 1.

Back in Warzone Season 6, various balance changes to several weapons in the game made the FARA 83 one of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone. It turns out the AR stood the test of time and is still an excellent option for gunfights in Caldera and Rebirth Island.

With almost no recoil and solid damage, the FARA 83 is an extremely easy weapon to use, and you can equip the right attachments and perks to make it even more powerful in combat.

With this in mind, here is the best Warzone Pacific FARA 83 loadout in Season 1.

Best Warzone FARA 83 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Gru Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd

We’ll start the best Warzone FARA 83 loadout with the Gru Suppressor, which will help you avoid enemy detection while also drastically increasing the damage range of this Assault Rifle. This will allow you to dish out heavy amounts of damage at further distances through Caldera’s jungles.

The 18.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel will improve both the Assault Rifle’s effective damage range, horizontal recoil control, vertical recoil control, and bullet velocity. This helps prime the weapon for mid to long-range combat, where you need to pick off enemies from a distance.

You can use the Axial Arms 3x to have a very clear and precise view of the battlefield and help improve your accuracy at long range.

The Spetsnaz Grip will give you the most significant accuracy boost and will help you land more of your shots with ease. Thanks to the boost, it provides the best Warzone FARA 83 loadout with vertical and horizontal recoil control.

We’ll complete the best Warzone FARA 83 loadout by equipping the Spetsnaz 60 Rnd Mag so you can take advantage of the weapon’s incredible fire rate and have enough ammo to take down multiple enemies before having to reload.

Best Warzone FARA Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

There will be many opponents throwing explosives at you in an attempt to ruin your killstreaks. If you want to prevent this from happening then you should equip E.O.D to become more resistant to explosive damage.

We recommend pairing this gun with another weapon like the Welgun SMG for close-range encounters, so pick up Overkill from your first loadout drop. This will let you select two primary weapons from any category.

You can then snag Ghost from a second loadout drop to keep yourself hidden from enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors. This will let you maintain the element of surprise.

With Combat Scout equipped, as soon as you mark an enemy, they’ll be highlighted through walls and will also be marked for your team.

Most recent FARA 83 nerfs and buffs in Warzone

Best alternatives to Warzone FARA 83
