AK-47 warzone loadout: an ak-47 on a black background

For a long while, the Cold War AK-47 was rarely seen in the battlefields of Call of Duty: Warzone. Then, following a buff, everyone was running around with the best AK-47 Warzone loadout. While it’s not regarded as one of the best Warzone guns any more, it’s still used widely due to its versatility.

What’s makes the AK-47 so great is that depending on which attachments you use, this AK-47 Warzone loadout can be built to act like a close-range rival to some of the top SMGs in Warzone, or as a long-range beamer that can go toe to toe with your usual suspects.

Because you can kit the AK-47 out in whichever way you fancy, its usage rate is higher than some of the other guns in the game and can act as the centrepiece of a traditional AR/SMG class or as the support option for all you sniping enthusiasts out there. It might not be in the Warzone meta right now, but if you master its recoil – your enemies will have hell to pay.

If you’ve somehow ended up here while looking for an AK74u build, don’t worry, you can find our best AK74u Warzone loadout here. But if you are in the right place, here are our picks for the best AK-47 Warzone loadout.

Here are the best attachments for this AK47 loadout:

  • GRU Suppressor
  • 20″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Axial Arms 3x
  • Spetsnaz Grip
  • Bakelite 60 Rnd Mag

As you can see here, this gun is built for medium to long range. The GRU Suppressor will keep you off the grid, while boosting the gun’s accuracy, damage, and range.

Be warned, that the AK does require a bit more skill when it comes to recoil control than some of its rivals, but the Spetsnaz RPK barrel and the Spetsnaz Grip will both help tame that recoil somewhat.

You’ll want a mid-to-close-range SMG as your secondary for this class, and you might just find the perfect accompaniment in our Marco-5 Warzone loadout guide.

Best AK47 Warzone loadout perks and equipment

For either of these AK-47 Warzone loadouts, combine the necessary Overkill perk with the usual suspects of Double Time and Combat Scout. The combination of Heartbeat Sensor and Semtex is the tried and tested pairing for your equipment, but you could also run Throwing Knives if you wanted, which help with finishing off downed players efficiently.

If you give this build a shot, you’ll quickly see why the AK-47 is billed as one of the most powerful guns in the game.
