Raven Software has dropped a brand-new update for Warzone, making major changes to the game’s weapon balancing with nerfs to popular guns like the Krig 6, Stoner 63, and OTs 9 SMG.

There’s nothing quite like a weapon balancing update to throw the cat among the pigeons in Verdansk, and just one week after the Season 5 Reloaded patch, Raven has given the meta a huge shakeup.

While there are some significant nerfs to some of Warzone’s best weapons, the biggest casualty of the September 15 update is the OTs 9, which has had its recoil increased, and headshot, neck multipliers, and damage range all reduced.

On top of that, the Krig 6 and Stoner 63 LMG have also been hit by Raven, while the AUG and M16 Assault Rifles have received a boost.

It’s not just the three weapons above who have been hit hard by this patch. While the FARA 83, TEC-9, and QBZ-83 haven’t been dominating the meta, Raven have decided they needed to be nerfed too.

It’s important to know that while the game’s developers have released these notes to us, there are still more changes to come when the update officially goes live. Raven is set to release full patch notes on September 15, and we’ll be sure to update this article with any new information.

You can read the full September 15 Warzone patch notes below.

Best OTs 9 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 6

The OTs 9 SMG is a powerful weapon in Warzone’s, so here are the attachments and Perks to make the best Warzone OTs 9 loadout in Season 6.

Published

Best Warzone ots 9 loadout

The OTs 9 SMG is another meta pick in Warzone’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 6.

The OTs 9 from Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 remains a great choice to consider when it comes to a powerful close-quarters weapon in the battle royale game.

This Black Ops Cold War SMG boasts a highly competitive time to kill, so you can use it to dominate your opponents in close-range combat. However, its small magazine size holds it back somewhat.

Luckily, we can fix that with the attachments and Perks to run to make the best Warzone OTs 9 loadout.

Best Warzone OTs 9 loadout

Best Warzone OTs 9 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 8.1″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 40 Rnd

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

You’ll need to bring the weapon’s vertical and horizontal recoil under control, so it’s worth equipping the Spetsnaz Grip underbarrel. However, this will cost you in terms of both regular and ADS firing move speeds.

We’ll compensate for that with the Serpent Wrap rear grip. This will provide the best Warzone OTs 9 loadout with some extra ADS time at the cost of a slight reduction in your sprint to fire time. Lastly, to get the largest magazine size possible, you should use the Spetsnaz 40 Rnd mag.

Best Perks to use with OTs 9 class

Warzone E.O.D, overkill, and amped perks
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

For Perks, the meta has been given a reshuffle thanks to Season 6, and it has seen some new Perks shift this slightly. The classic perks are still powerful, especially for the OTs 9, hence our choice.

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 a FARA 83 or Swiss K31. Afterward, you want to take Ghost from your next loadout to hide from Heartbeat Sensors and UAVs.

We would be foolish not to pick Amped for our final Perk, as this perk 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.

Most recent OTs 9 buffs and nerfs in Warzone

Raven Software realizes that the best Warzone OTs 9 loadout is a popular wrecking machine in Warzone Season 5 and has recently taken action to rein it back slightly.

The September 15 update increased the weapon’s recoil while reducing the headshot, neck multipliers, and damage range.

Here are all the recent changes to the OTs 9

  • Recoil increased slightly.
  • Maximum damage decreased 34 ⇒ 31.
  • Minimum damage increased 20 ⇒ 21.
  • Headshot multiplier increased 1.35 ⇒ 1.52.
  • Neck multiplier decreased 1.35 ⇒ 1.

How to unlock the OTs 9

Best Warzone OTs 9 loadout

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

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 Modern Warfare’s MP5.
