Season 2 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War introduced two of the best post-launch weapons seen in the franchise’s history. The LC10 and FARA 83 were both added to the season’s Battle Pass and fans immediately fell in love with the weapons. They were strong, reliable and usable in any situation; traits that still apply today in Season 3.
The LC10, however, remains the most prominent in multiplayer. One of the reasons for this is the change to SMGs in Season 3. This required players to switch out attachments on their LC10 loadout. While, at first, some thought this was a burden, it turns out that the LC10 is just as dominant with its new set of attachments.
Best LC10 loadout in Black Ops Cold War
The major change to the SMGs in Season 3 dealt with the speed at which they move with certain attachments. The Speedgrip attachment in the underbarrel slot is the main reason Treyarch decided to make this alteration. While not overpowered, the attachment did allow SMG players to run quite fast.
Speedgrip was a key attachment on the LC10’s recommended loadout in Season 2 but, since it’s been changed, the configuration needs some reworking.
- Muzzle: SOCOM Eliminator
- Barrel: 13.2″ Rifled
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
- Stock: Raider Stock
To compensate for the loss of the Speedgrip, the new loadout features the reliable Field Agent Grip. This underbarrel decreases both horizontal and vertical recoil, allowing the LC10 to become a laser beam. Also helping this cause is the SOCOM Eliminator.
For damage, the 13.2″ Rifled barrel does the job just fine. It increases damage range by 25% and only loses 5% of sprinting move speed.
The last part of the loadout deals with mobility. The Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock are staples of SMG loadouts, with the former increasing ADS time and the latter increasing sprint-to-fire time.
If there’s one missing aspect from this loadout, however, it’s an optic. While the iron sights serve most players perfectly well, the addition of the Microflex LED is fitting for those who don’t like the iron sights. To make room for the optic, the SOCOM Eliminator can be removed.
