There’s nothing better than strolling into an objective area and obliterating the defenders in front of you with a trusty submachine gun. In Battlefield 2042, that’s no different and the best K30 Battlefield 2042 loadout will get the job done in no time.

The K30 is basically the Vector Kriss Gen II – a fast-firing beast of a weapon – that is built for short-range engagements. The gun can take down multiple enemies in one single burst, but its effectiveness is severely reduced over range. In other words, it’s perfect if you’re looking to clear out buildings, but less so if you’re on the top of a huge skyscraper.

But with such a high rate of fire and high recoil, how do you create the best K30 Battlefield 2042 loadout? Here’s our pick of the best attachments, gadgets, and class specialists that’ll help you get the job done in All Out Warfare and Hazard Zone.

The best Battlefield 2042 K30 build is:

  • K8 Holo
  • Tactical Compensator
  • Standard Issue/ Drum Mag
  • Cobra Grip

If you’re planning on playing nothing but the objective, this K30 Battlefield 2042 loadout is a good option for you. This fast-firing SMG is deadly in the right hands, giving you all the tools you need to disrupt enemy-controlled points, without having to rely on those around you.

Since the K30 is built for fast-paced close-quarters action, it’s very much a situational gun. If you get caught in long-range battles, you will come out on the losing side – unless your enemy misses all their shots. So, make sure you’re only using this where close-quarters engagements are viable.

The K8 Holo provides a decent picture of the terrain in front of you. A slightly longer range scope, like the Bravo 3x, is a good option to have on your Plus Menu just in case you’re forced into slightly longer ranges than you expect. This is Battlefield, after all.

In the barrel department, we’ve opted for the Tactical Compensator because it improves horizontal recoil control both when you’re on the move and static. If you’re looking to stay quiet, we’d recommend the 6KU Suppressor as your secondary.

We’ve also opted for the Standard Issue / Drum Mag as you’ll run out of rounds quickly. The Drum Mag not only increases your mag size, but it improves your recoil control, reload speed, and rate of fire as well.

Finally, the Cobra Grip takes up our last slot as it improves static accuracy by 20% and range by 5%. The K30 has a particularly frustrating recoil pattern, but the grip helps you keep that under control.

The K30 has an incredibly high rate of fire. As such, you’re going to burn through a lot of ammo. If you’ve not got a dependable squad who can keep you topped up, we’d recommend picking the Ammo Crate as your gadget for this loadout.

If you have a good squad, though, picking the Medical Crate isn’t a bad option – especially since this class is designed to get you up, close, and personal with your enemies.

Remember though, gadgets are restricted based on your class. So, other good options include the Med Crate, Ammo Crate, Prox Sensor, and SPH Explosive Launcher. Pick your poison depending on your class and playstyle – there’s no wrong answer.

Given the unique roles of each of the classes, you can pick almost anything to pair with your K30 loadout – so long as you’re leaning into your own playstyle. With that said though, if you’re in need of an ammo crate, then you’ll have to go Support.

Otherwise, Assault characters like Mackay and Skydance are perfect for repositioning and getting the drop on your enemy.

There you have it, our best K30 Battlefield 2042 loadout. If you’re hungry for more or struggling with the K30, take a look at the best Battlefield 2042 guns you can get.
