Warzone loadout of the week: Swagg returns to a long-forgotten SMG

How’s it going, Call of Duty: Warzone fans? We’re back for another edition of Warzone loadout of the week, where we shine the spotlight on a loadout that’s either completely broken, highly unusual, or sometimes both at the same time.

This week, we turn to one of Warzone’s biggest streamers, Kris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson, who has decided to turn back time and dig an old Modern Warfare-era SMG out of the vault. While the Black Ops Cold War Bullfrog is still one of the most popular SMGs in Warzone, this week Swagg decided to show some love to its older cousin, the PP19 Bizon.

While the Bullfrog is in the top ten most-used guns right now, the Bizon is used by just 0.1% of the playerbase, according to WZ Ranked. Despite this, Swagg is boldly claiming that thanks to a Season 4 buff to the long-forgotten SMG, the Bizon can match the Bullfrog on the battlefield.

We were skeptical – until we saw what the FaZe Clan streamer was doing with this particular Bizon class. Swagg has been shredding with the Bizon, and by using it alongside the extremely strong FARA 83 assault rifle, he is dropping a lot of kills in Verdansk right now.

Here are all the details on this week’s standout loadout.

Bizon build

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • 8.7” Steel Barrel
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • 84 Round Helical Mags

Swagg’s Bizon Warzone loadout aims to crank all of his movement and ADS speed stats up, while also bolstering bullet velocity and offering sounds suppression via the Monolithic Suppressor.

On top of this, he opts for the massive 84 Round Helical Mags, which mean you’ll never have to even think about reloading in a gunfight.

This Bizon is speedy and steady, but hits surprisingly hard for an SMG. Maybe you’re favourite Bullfrog Warzone loadout isn’t the play after all?

FARA build

  • GRU Suppressor
  • 18.7” Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Axial Arms 3x
  • Spetsnaz Grip
  • Spetsnaz 60 Rnd

Of course, a Bizon is not going to beam people across the map. For that, Swagg goes for the top assault rifle in the Warzone meta right now – the FARA 83. This build is pretty close to the one in our FARA Warzone loadout guide, and it is an absolute beast for long range.

The FARA is the top dog for a reason – loads of damage, manageable recoil, and greta bullet velocity.

This, paired with the close-range Bizon, is a match made in Warzone heaven.

Perks and equipment

There’s no real surprises in the perks and equipment department to be honest – Swagg goes for some of the most popular and trusted combinations.

For perks, it’s the standard trio of Double Time, Overkill, and Amped. For equipment, he opts for a Heartbeat Sensor and Semtex.

There we have it folks, yet another ridiculous loadout for you to try this week in Warzone. The Bizon is probably going to be a bit dusty after sitting in your arsenal for so long, but once you’ve blown away the cobwebs, it will prove why it should be given a second chance in Season 4.
