Best Krig 6 loadout for CoD: Cold War Season 5

Here are the best attachments and Perks to absolutely dominate with the Krig 6 Assault Rifle in CoD: Black Ops Cold War Season 5.

Published

Cold War Krig 6 loadout

The Krig 6 still is one of the most accurate Assault Rifles in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 5, and possibly the game, and we’ve got the perfect Perks and attachments to help you become unstoppable.

This powerful Assault Rifle is incredible at close-to-mid-range and absolutely decimates at long-distance engagements. We even ranked the Krig 6 as Cold War’s best weapon in Treyarch’s latest Call of Duty title, so it’s absolutely worth having in at least one of your Black Ops Cold War loadouts.

On top of its CoD: Cold War supremacy, it’s also been an unbelievable gun in Call of Duty’s battle royale title too. If you’re looking for the best class in Warzone, you can check out our Krig 6 Warzone loadout.

Here’s the best combination of attachments and perks for your Krig 6 in Black Ops Cold War Season 5 Reloaded.

Best Black Ops Cold War Krig 6 attachments

Best BOCW Krig 6 attachments & loadout
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
  • Barrel: 19.7″ Ranger
  • Body: Ember Sighting Point
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: 40 Rnd
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock

With the Gunfighter Wildcard equipped, the Krig can hold up to eight attachments, so we’ve started with the Microflex LED sight for precise shots at any range. To improve the weapon’s accuracy even further, the Infantry Compensator and Field Agent Grip will make vertical recoil almost non-existent.

As you’ll want to hold down long lines of sight, you’ll need a high bullet velocity to take out targets quickly at any range. To do this, the 19.7″ Ranger barrel is an excellent choice.

For the Krig 6’s body, we’ve applied the Ember Sighting Point. Not only will you be able to hip-fire with deadly accuracy if the situation arises, but the torch will also reveal enemies, counteracting some of Black Ops Cold War’s visibility issues.

The 40 Rnd Magazine bolsters its ammo capacity, allowing you to take out several targets without reloading, and you can even afford to miss a few shots in a firefight.

Next, we have the Airborne Elastic Wrap for our handle as it greatly increases your ADS and allows you to get firing much quicker. Plus, it nullifies most flinch resistance effects too.

The final attachment you should run is the Raider Stock which gives your Aim Walking Movement speed a healthy bonus, making yourself a hard target to hit while strafe shooting.

Best Perks to run with Black Ops Cold War’s Krig 6

BOCW flak jacket perk
  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket
  • Perk 2: Scavenger
  • Perk 3: Ghost

While holding down lanes and defending Hardpoints or flags in Domination, expect a shower of Frag Grenades and Semtex to come your way. Flak Jacket will keep you protected from explosives, which is vital to staying alive and keeping killstreaks going.

To make sure you can hold onto your devastating Krig 6, Scavenger will allow you to resupply ammo on the fly. Finally, to further preserve your life, Ghost will keep you hidden from enemy Spy Planes, allowing for effective flanks and ambushes.

Treyarch has left the Krig 6 Assault Rifle alone for quite some time now which shows how much the devs feel the Krig 6 is balanced right now.

Here is the extent of the Krig 6 changes:

  • Reduced range penalty on Agency Suppressor muzzle attachment from 30% to 25%.

How to unlock the Krig 6 in Black Ops Cold War

The Krig 6 is simple to unlock in Black Ops Cold War. You just need to play the game until you reach Level 16.

Completing challenges, taking advantage of Double XP events, and racking up high killstreaks will all be massive contributors to ranking up fast. Once you hit Level 16, you’ll have access to the Krig 6 in Cold War and Warzone.

Best alternatives to Cold War’s Krig 6

If you’re not feeling the Krig 6, then there are plenty of other Assault Rifles that perform well, especially thanks to the improved Iron Sights of some ARs – the XM4 has become a god as of late too.

Cold War Zombies players furious as update deletes camo progress

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies camo is being affected after a recent update has reset camo progress for many players.

Published

cold war gun with dark aether camo

The newest Black Ops Cold War game settings update has ruined Zombies camo progress for many by resetting their accomplishments and stats.

Completing and unlocking camos is a big deal for many Call of Duty players, as the thrill of seeing hard work pay off is a huge buzz.

Whether it’s Diamond, Damascus, or Dark Matter, being able to equip these cool camos with your favorite guns is a great visual. Treyarch made it so that players could also unlock camos through specific Zombies challenges so that they didn’t feel forced to play multiplayer.

However, one of Black Ops Cold War’s “Game Settings update” improvements has inadvertently deleted Zombie camo unlock progress for many.

dark aether unlock requirements

Posted in the official Call of Duty Zombies subreddit, a video from user noeltorious brought attention to the changes made by the latest game settings update.

The player showed off two different versions of their Marshal Shotgun, one with a standard look, and one that had the Dark Aether camo.

In one loadout, they hovered over all the hardest-to-unlock camos, and they were all locked, despite the challenges underneath showing that the requirement had been fulfilled.

The player then went to a loadout where the Marshal actually had the Dark Aether camo equipped, but despite the camo being applied to the weapon, it still showed up as locked.

One frustrated player stated that: “Nah nah, if this happens I’m going to be so f*cking pissed, all my hard work, so close to Dark Aether, I’m never touching cod again.”

This seems like a pretty big change and glitch in the system that is affecting a lot of Cold War players. We would imagine it’s something that Treyarch will be looking at as soon as they can.
