 Battlefield 2042 is no longer receiving major updates and additional content. However, this PKP-BP loadout is still usable.

When you’re looking to provide some supportive firing cover for your team in Battlefield 2042, there’s only one real weapon for the job: the PKP-BP, otherwise known as the PKP Pecheneg machine gun.

This Russian LMG can fire up to 800 rounds per minute, making it one of the deadliest support weapons in the game. While it doesn’t quite top the best Battlefield 2042 guns – the best PKP-BP Battlefield 2042 loadout will strike fear into the hearts of your enemies.

That’s because this build, which we’ll explain in full below, utilizes all the best bits of the gun to unload a barrage of bullets down range. If you’re looking to have some fun on the battlefield using an old-school weapon, then read on – we’ve got the build for you.

Best PKP-BP Battlefield 2042 loadout

The best Battlefield 2042 PKP-BP build is:

  • Fusion Holo
  • High-Power / Extended
  • Factory Mounts
  • Champion Muzzle Brake

The PKP-BP is the ultimate support gun – it has a high fire rate, large ammo capacity, and a high damage output. As you’d expect, this does come with some downsides in the speed department, and it’s not always the most accurate weapon. So, here’s how we built the best PKP-BP Battlefield 2042 loadout.

For the sight, we’d recommend picking the Fusion Holo. It’s the holographic sight which has the clearest view, which is a must when you’re emptying your mag into an objective. As a secondary sight, the Bravo 3X will help you hone in on targets at range. Remember, you can stow them using the Plus Menu.

For your ammunition, the High-Power / Extended mag is a must – this gives you 200 rounds to play with, as well as bullets that’ll leave your enemies wincing. As a second option for your Plus Menu, the Armor Piercing rounds are a good option for when you’re overrun with light vehicles.

The PKP-BP doesn’t have much in terms of underbarrel attachments, though the Factory Mount can come in handy when you’ve got a good spot to bunker down. As for the barrel, well, we’d opt for the Champion Muzzle Brake, which will help you with your vertical recoil control.

Best PKP-BP Battlefield 2042 loadout gadget

Struggling to decide which gadget to pair with the PKP-BP? That’s alright – it’s a hard decision. While you should play whatever is suited to your playstyle and team, sometimes you’ll be forced to play with an Ammo Crate or Proximity Sensors for this build.

Given it’s a heavy weapon intended to control the area, we recommend an Ammo Crate to stay stocked up or the SPH Explosive launcher. This will require you to play the Support or Assault class respectively though.

While you can’t go wrong with any of the classes and characters, there are a few that stand out from the crowd. The Support specialist Boris is particularly fun as you can bunker down with the PKP and a turret alongside you to truly lock down an objective. You’ll also get access to the medical and ammo boxes too.

However, there are also great combinations with the Assault and Recon classes for a more destructive or intel-based playstyle respectively. Pick whichever you prefer.

So there you have it, our best PKP-BP Battlefield 2042 loadout in full. If you’re an old Support specialist looking to make a difference in All-Out Warfare this is the gun for you.
