After the nightmare that was the fully automatic, dual wield, 80-round magazine monster called the Sykov, fans of Call of Duty: Warzone were terrified to learn that another pistol was entering the game that could be just as overpowered.
The AMP63, which was added towards the end of Season 3 of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, looked on paper to be yet another super strong sidearm. However, it seems that lessons have been learned from the destruction the Sykov created, and the AMP63 is not going to head straight to the top of our list of the best Warzone guns.
In fact, it’s proved to be a bit of a let down. The AMP63 is an extremely situational gun, and while that means in most cases you won’t want to throw it into your favourite loadout, there are some cases where it can be quite effective.
While the Sykov’s high ammo capacity meant it could blitz through teams in Trios or Quads, the same can’t be said for the AMP63. With a maximum magazine size of 25 bullets, the AMP63 is only really going to be worth your while if you’re in a Solos or Duos lobby.
Nevertheless, in these scenarios, it is actually quite good. Meta-defining, no. But it does look like a blast to use. Here’s the best AMP63 Warzone class we’ve found so far.
Best AMP63 Warzone loadout
- Sound Suppressor
- 7.2” Task Force Barrel
- Microflex LED
- STANAG 25 Rnd Mag
- Airborne Elastic Wrap
Warzone YouTuber ‘Metaphor’ has found the perfect way to build and use the AMP63 pistol in Warzone. As mentioned earlier, this is not going to be too effective in Trios or Quads, but the STANAG 25 Rnd Mag means you have ample bullets to take down a solo player or a team of two.
With this AMP63 build, you get the delicious fire rate of a full-auto pistol but with decent recoil control. Is it as good as a Sykov or one of the top SMGs in the game? Not really, but it still performs really well.
As a lover of sniping, Metaphor has this as a sniper support for a Kar98k, but if you’d rather have the dependability of a long-range assault rifle, check out our best RAM-7 Warzone loadout or best AMAX Warzone loadout guides for some inspiration.
One advantage of running the AMP63 is that it is a secondary weapon, so there’s no need for Overkill in your lineup of perks. Metaphor is running Double Time, Restock, and Amped for this class.

For the equipment, he’s got Semtex and Stun Grenades in his back pocket.
The AMP63 is not going to break the meta, but it could be a fun alternative to use in Solos and Duos. Give it a try, but don’t expect another broken pistol like the Sykov that came before it.
