What is the best Warzone 2 RPK loadout? If you love playing with LMGs in Call of Duty, then you’ll love the RPK. Boasting some impressive recoil control at range, the gun has some advantages over its classmates which make it a must in Al Mazrah and Ashika Island.
Thanks to its quicker-than-average reload speed and ADS time for its class, the RPK won’t take a century to whip out in a fight. Indeed, the LMG from the Kastovia weapon platform doesn’t pull its punches, and could easily be one of the best Warzone 2 guns, let alone the best Warzone 2 LMG options when kitted out appropriately.
Best Warzone 2 RPK loadout
Here is the best Warzone 2 RPK loadout in the battle royale game right now according to Call of Duty creator ‘ZLANER’:
- Muzzle: Polarfire-S
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Rear Grip: Demo-X2 Grip
- Stock: Heavy Support Stock
- Optic: Schalger 3.4x
ZLANER’s build is tuned to maximise recoil control and effective damage range where possible.
The Polarfire-S silencer comes with a plethora of boons, packing bonuses for bullet velocity, damage range, and recoil smoothness, though at the cost of ADS speed and aiming stability.
The loss of ADS speed is a recurring theme throughout the build, though the trade-offs are worth it. the Heavy Support Stock gives back that lost aiming stability from the muzzle, alongside recoil control. The FTAC Ripper 56, trades ADS speed for idle aiming stability and recoil stabilisation.
For optics, the Schlager 3.4x once again lets ADS speed take a hit for a solid mid-long range scope, though if the sniper glint is a deal breaker or you simply don’t wish to play at that magnification, then opt for something like the AIM OP-V4.
Finally, slap a Demo-X2 Grip on for a final dash of recoil control and you’re good to go.
Now you have the best Warzone 2 RPK loadout, it’s time to talk class setup. After all, your perks and equipment can make all the difference in Al Mazrah.
Warzone 2 RPK class setup
When running an LMG, you’re going to want to take a short range option for when things get up close and personal. We’d highly recommend either the best Warzone 2 Lachmann Sub loadout or best Warzone 2 Kastov-74u loadout for the job.
As such, when it comes to perks you’ll need to opt for Overkill as the base perk, and so the Weapon Specialist perk package will have to be taken. Alternatively, you could do as ZLANER does and run akimbo P890s instead, giving you the freedom to instead take the Vanguard perk package, or even something like Warden that will grant access to the reload speed-increasing Fast Hands.
Finally, on the equipment front locking in some Drill Charges as your lethal slot option will make clearing out buildings much easier, while the Heartbeat Sensor is the tactical choice thanks to the synergy between the two – recon plus explosive power equals one doomed camper (as long as they don’t have Ghost equipped).
And that’s all you need to know when it comes to building the best Warzone 2 RPK class setup. If you’re after something with even less recoil on the LMG front, then definitely familiarise yourself with our best Warzone 2 RAAL MG loadout guide.
