Top Warzone streamer Kris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson is known for trying out off-meta loadouts, and he believes a new full-auto pistol will replace SMGs.
Long-time Warzone players will remember some of the incredible pistol loadouts that dominated the game, including the Akimbo Snakeshots, Diamattis, and of course, the Sykov. It’s SMGs that have been dominating close-range loadouts since Caldera’s arrival, but FaZe Swagg believes that could change.
Vanguard’s 1911 Pistol has a barrel that allows it to go fully automatic, and Swagg believes it could replace “every SMG” following the February 24 update.
Vanguard’s PPSH received an accidental buff in Warzone, and since the devs nerfed it, Swagg decided to try out an unorthodox full-auto 1911 pistol loadout. He said he’s seen it on YouTube before, where it looked like a “pocket SMG.”
Swagg tried it out in Caldera and managed to drop 30 kills while using it along with the STG44. In his video titled “Full-auto 1911 will replace every SMG,” he said it “kills really fast up close” and it’s great for duos and solos game modes.
What makes having a Pistol as your secondary so effective is that you can choose any Perk 2 you like, and not have to worry about having Overkill to carry an SMG alongside your primary weapon. You can check out Swagg’s loadout below.
FaZe Swagg full-auto 1911 Warzone loadout
- Muzzle: M1929 Silencer
- Barrel: Cooper Full-Auto
- Optic: G16 2.5x
- Trigger Action: Heavy Trigger
- Magazine: .45 ACP 18 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Hollow Point
- Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
Swagg fitted this Vanguard 1911 will attachments to make it effective at close-range. What’s most important is the M1929 Silencer that keeps his shots off the minimap, the Cooper Full-Auto barrel, and the .45 ACP 18 Round Mags to ensure he doesn’t burn through the bullets immediately.
The only thing he was unsure about was the G16 2.5x optic, as the gun “has a lot of visual recoil” so the popular Slate Reflector “is almost pointless.” It’s worth experimenting and seeing which optic works best for you.
