For the first time since 2017’s Call of Duty: WWII, the PPSh-41 is back. Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone added the fan-favorite weapon and players have immediately gravitated towards it, unlockable through the Battle Pass.
Almost instantly, players discovered that the PPSh-41 is a bit of a monster, especially in Warzone. Featuring low recoil, high damage and great mobility, the PPSh-41 is certainly a weapon worth using in Season 3. However, as with all other weapons in Warzone, it’s made infinitely better with the correct loadout.
Best PPSh-41 loadout in Warzone
With the developers at Raven Software nerfing other SMGs like the Mac-10 in Season 3, the PPSh-41 fills a needed void. It provides steady performance in the new Verdansk ’84 map and might slide its way into the developing meta.
With already solid stats, designing a loadout for the PPSh-41 can be somewhat difficult. Luckily, one has surfaced that truly makes its mark on Verdansk ’84.
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
- Barrel: 7.4″ Task Force
- Stock: Raider Stock
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
- Ammunition: 55 RND Mag
While the PPSh-41 features little recoil in Warzone, it’s still wise to add some attachments to further decrease the recoil. The GRU Suppressor and Spetsnaz Grip take care of that and then some, with the former also keeping players off the radar when firing.
Also featured in the loadout is the popular 7.4″ Task Force barrel, which increases damage, range and bullet velocity. Rounding out the attachment list is the Raider Stock for a 30% increase to sprint-to-fire time, along with the 55 RND Mag to ensure reloading doesn’t become a hassle.
There might be some calls for a nerf to the weapon sooner rather than later, so it’s best to try it out soon. As many have found out the hard way, the SMG is powerful in Warzone, so be aware of the new PPSh-41.
