Call of Duty: Warzone has seen an influx of new weapons since its integration with Black Ops Cold War. The Season One update sees no fewer than 31 new weapons – and one vehicle – drop into Verdansk, and some have flown straight to the top of the Warzone meta.
At short-range, you can’t go wrong with the MAC-10. You unlock the SMG for free when you reach level 15 of the Battle Pass, but it’s already standing out as one of the best Warzone guns. It fires rapid shots – as is to be expected with a submachine gun – but has decent range and good hip fire to complement the high rate of fire.
What’s more, there’s a Legendary version of the MAC-10 which you unlock at level 94 of the Battle Pass, setting you up with a great loadout from the off. However, even if you haven’t grabbed the blueprint yet, you can find this legendary Gallantry variant as floor loot in your Warzone matches.
We’re still testing all the attachments to work out what is the perfect loadout for the MAC-10, but it’s already shredding at close range.
Best MAC-10 Warzone loadout for close range
The best Warzone MAC-10 loadout for close range is:
- STANNAG 53 Rnd Drum
- SASR Jungle Grip
- Millstop Reflex
- Bruiser Grip
- Wire Stock
As you can tell, at this point this is just the Gallantry loadout, but we’re having a bunch of fun with it – so why not use it to level up your MAC-10 and get the precise attachments you want?
The increased magazine size means you don’t have to reload so often, which is vital in a close-quarters firefight and allows you to take down multiple opponents with one clip. The ADS speed and hip-fire are also top notch with this loadout, meaning you can use accurate fire with your sights or spray-and-pray with effective results.
Best balanced MAC-10 Warzone loadout
The best all-rounder MAC-10 Warzone loadout is:
- Muzzle Brake 9
- 5.3″ Extended Barrel
- Wire Stock
- Patrol Grip
- STANAG 53 Rnd Drum
Unlike the previous MAC-10 build, this one is far more balanced. It is still lethal at close range, but is built to be more accurate at longer ranges by reducing recoil and boosting range.
This is actually one of NICKMERCS’ Warzone loadouts, and the streamer has been terrorising Verdansk and Rebirth Island with this MAC-10.
For the very best MAC-10 loadout, you’ll probably want to pair this with something long-range (check out our best DMR Warzone loadout for some overpowered inspiration). For that you’ll need the Overkill perk, and we recommend E.O.D. and Amped as your other two.
The tried and tested combination of Heartbeat Sensor and C4 will serve you well in the equipment department.
So if sliding into a room and deleting an entire team before they can call you a hacker is your thing, try out these MAC-10 builds. You won’t regret it.
