The notoriously fast-firing Cold War PPSH-41 SMG can cause significant damage in Warzone Pacific Season 2, so make sure you’re not missing out with our best loadout, complete with attachments and Perks.
Multiple Call of Duty games have featured the PPSH-41 SMG, and it’s been mega-popular and used frequently. Its blistering speed can sometimes be hard to control, but given that Warzone has a near-endless stream of attachments, the PPSH can become a beast.
The Black Ops Cold War SMG can destroy large groups of enemies in close quarters without you having to break much of a sweat if you use the right attachments and Perks to maximize its potential.
With this in mind, here is how to make the best Warzone PPSH-41 loadout for Pacific Season 2 of the Call of Duty battle royale.
- Best Warzone Cold War PPSH-41 loadout
- Best Warzone PPSH-41 loadout attachments
- Best perks to run with Warzone PPSH-41 class
- Most recent PPSH-41 buffs and nerfs
- How to unlock the PPSH-41
- Best alternatives to Cold War PPSH-41
Best Warzone Cold War PPSH-41 loadout
Best Warzone PPSH-41 loadout attachments
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
- Barrel: 15.7″ Task Force
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
- Ammunition: 55 Rnd Drum
- Stock: Raider Stock
To get the best Warzone PPSH-41 loadout rolling, we’re immediately applying the popular GRU Suppressor as we want our SMG to be as quiet as a mouse but still perform well at any range. The 15.7″ Task Force barrel is a must for most SMGs as, again, it increases damage over longer distances.
The Raider Stock is excellent for increasing your overall mobility and speed, and the 55 Rnd Drum gives us enough ammunition to finish off two or three players.
We finish the attachments off with the Spetsnaz Grip as it will make controlling the PPSH-41’s troublesome vertical recoil pattern much easier.
Best Perks to run with Warzone PPSH-41 class
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
- Perk 3: Combat Scout
Given that you’re going to want to get in close with the PPSH regularly in Warzone, E.O.D will allow you to shrug off Thermite, Grenades, and other explosive distractions.

Even with attachments, the best Warzone PPSH-41 loadout still lacks the full range that an Assault Rifle can offer, so Overkill lets us play with a longer-range gun such as the STG44. You can switch to Ghost after collecting both your long-range and close-range weapons.
Lastly, we recommend equipping Combat Scout, highlighting any enemies you damage for your whole squad to see. You’ll be able to hunt them down with greater ease across Caldera’s jungles.
Most recent PPSH buffs and nerfs
Raven Software applied some buffs to the Black Ops Cold War SMG back in the Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update that went live on October 7, 2021.
This update also brought a whole host of other weapon balancing changes that you can find here.
You can find the latest PPSH buff details below:
- Weapon Kick adjusted
- ADS Sway adjusted
While firing the PPSh-41 (BOCW), the Weapon could kick in a manner that would make it difficult to gauge bullet directionality. This is a subtle change that will have a significant impact on the ability to line up shots reliably.
How to unlock the PPSH
Players could unlock this Black Ops Cold War SMG by reaching Level 15 on the Season 3 Battle Pass.
However, with that Battle Pass no longer available, players now have two different challenges they can complete to unlock this weapon.
You can find these unlock challenges below:
- Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer/Warzone: Using SMGs, get 3 kills immediately after sprinting in 15 different completed matches.
- Black Ops Cold War Zombies: Using SMGs, kill 50 Special or Elite enemies while they are ensared in your Toxic Growth.
Best alternatives to Cold War PPSH-41
The best Warzone PPSH-41 loadout is still a solid option but the meta SMG weapons at the moment seem to be the Owen Gun and Welgun. If you’re no longer interested in a close-range option you can always opt for this incredible 3-Line Rifle loadout.

JGOD explains why Warzone’s Operation Monarch event “flopped”
Call of Duty expert JGOD has revealed why Warzone Pacific Season 3’s King Kong vs Godzilla event has been a “flop.”
Warzone’s Operation Monarch brought King Kong and Godzilla to Caldera, and Call of Duty expert JGOD has explained why fans aren’t sold on the event.
The arrival of King Kong and Godzilla in Caldera shook things up in Warzone Pacific Season 3, with players gaining access to brand-new content like the S.C.R.E.A.M. Device killstreak and Operation Monarch LTM.
However, the event has received criticism from the Warzone community, with popular streamers like Dr Disrespect and NICKMERCS roasting it on social media. Now, Warzone expert JGOD has revealed why Operation Monarch could potentially hurt the game.
JGOD discussed Warzone’s Operation Monarch and why he believes the event “flopped,” criticizing the fact that the King Kong and Godzilla don’t interact with each other on Caldera.
The Warzone expert stated: “They don’t interact in any way, and a lot of times that they’re not even close enough where you could use one’s ability on the other.” He then suggested a few ways this problem could have been solved.
JGOD said: “I feel like there should have been choreographed fighting elements where maybe they come together, hit each other, but they don’t have a victor, and then maybe after you get a win, there would be a series of four different cutscenes.”
If players won matches, they could see Godzilla smacking King Kong and vice versa, a draw, or even MechaGodzilla showing up. This would incentivize fans to play well so that they could see the different cutscenes.
JGOD also compared Operation Monarch to Fortnite’s live events, arguing that Raven Software should have done something similar by making sure that players don’t have to battle each other.
He stated: “Basically, there’s no interaction between players in terms of being able to shoot each other, and you just participate in the event. I think a lot of people would have preferred just to have that event.”
The Call of Duty expert claimed that this would be a great way to get more people to join Warzone, as casual players wouldn’t have to worry about being shot down by enemies during the event.
JGOD pointed out the benefit of being able to level up weapons fast in Operation Monarch but claimed that the event was a “flop” because most of the Warzone community feels that the marketing didn’t match the end result.
As with Warzone’s other live events, Operation Monarch will remain available in Warzone Pacific Season 3 for a limited time.

The Owen Gun Blueprint isn’t a straightforward unlock and you’ll need to put down a hefty amount of CoD Points, so here’s how to get your hands on it in Warzone and Vanguard.

How much is the Apex Phase Rifle Owen Gun Blueprint?
As players need to purchase all three of the Godzilla vs Kong bundles, the Apex Phase Rifle Owen Gun Blueprint will cost a whopping 7,200 CoD Points or $74.99 / £69.99.

Warzone’s demon gun glitch is back with a vengeance in Season 3
Warzone’s infamous demon gun glitch has returned to ruin games for players in Season 3, and this time it’s back with a vengeance.
Warzone’s demon gun glitch is making a return in Season 3, and players will have to contend with one of the worst iterations of the glitch we’ve seen to date.
Longtime Warzone players will be familiar with Warzone’s demon gun glitch as it never fails to pop up from time to time. The glitch occurs randomly and affects players’ visibility by blocking their screens with monstrous textures.
While the demon gun glitch has been dormant for a while, it has now reemerged with a vengeance in Warzone Season 3. Players will be hoping to avoid this iteration of the demon gun glitch as a strange twist makes it different than the traditional version.
The demon gun glitch has always been one of the most game-breaking glitches that players can encounter. When it occurs, players are helpless and cannot get rid of the visual glitch, and you’re basically stuck with it until you die.
Having the majority of your screen obscured by massive blocks of broken textures means that your match is likely over before it even begins. We’ve seen moments where players blind fire and luckily come out with a kill, but the majority of gamers suffer helpless Warzone deaths.
This time, a video posted to the Warzone subreddit by OowlwoO proves that the demon gun glitch is back and breaking the game in Season 3.
The player is simply attempting to grab a custom loadout, but it all goes wrong as a different version of the demon gun glitch appears. This time the visual glitch doesn’t appear on the player’s weapon.
It seems like the visual glitch is surrounding an enemy player in a “blob” of broken textures. To make matters worse, when the player in the clip is downed, their game crashes and they are booted back to the Warzone menu. If the glitch is kicking players from games, this is quite the troublesome version that players will have to deal with.
Players in the comments explained that this iteration seems to be a version of the demon gun glitch that affects the player model instead of weapons, “He didn’t render correctly, this used to be fairly common its similar to the gun render issue, our squad used to get this same thing, you just gotta shoot the middle of it and hope it dies.”
