Best RPK Loadout for Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 and DMZ
The Season 1 Reloaded update has shifted the meta in Warzone 2.0 and DMZ, but don’t you worry Freeknation, because we’ve got your six. Pair this RPK with a Vaznez 9k or a Fennec 45 and you will be dominating most ranges of gunfights in Al Mazrah. Whether you are playing Solos, Duos, Trios, or Quads, anyone can benefit from the base ammo capacity, recoil, and range that the RPK boasts. We have always been a huge LMG fan, with the Bruen meta from Warzone being one of our favorite seasons. So it’s great to see the RPK getting its time to shine in the meta spotlight. With the right attachments and tuning this RPK will be your go-to first loadout and weapon in Warzone 2.0.
Regarding optics, this is largely personal preference, but the RPK’s largest downside is its weight and lack of mobility and snappiness, so a lot of the attachments and tuning will be designed to mitigate those weaknesses. We recommend the CORVUS SOL-76 over a longer-range scope that will make the gun heavier.
In the muzzle category, we’re going to throw on the ZULU-60 silencer. This is going to keep us off the radar when we fire, while adding addition bullet velocity and recoil control/steadiness, both of which are essential for hitting your targets at long range during sustained fire.
As previously mentioned in the sight category, we want to improve the snappiness of this beastly weapon, so let’s throw on the CORVUS SOL-76 laser for increased Aim Down Sight Speed.
We recommend the FTAC RIPPER 56 for the underbarrel attachment for the increased Recoil Stabilization and reduced Idle Sway with minimal negatives.
Ammunition Type should come as no surprise, but we are rocking the .50 Cal High Velocity ammunition for increased Bullet Velocity, further ensuring that our shots hit our targets even when that bullet has a long way to go.
We tuned the CORVUS SOL-76 Optic for slightly faster ADS (-1.74oz) and we tuned the Eye Position to close (+1.20 in).
For the ZULU-60 silencer, we’re going to tune this for slightly more Recoil Steadiness (+0.72oz) and more Aiming Idle Stability (-0.52in)
.50 Cal High Velocity should be tuned for slightly more Damage Range (+0.11g) and then max out Bullet Velocity (+9.00 gr).
Finally, for the FTAC RIPPER 56, we tuned this underbarrel for more ADS Speed (-0.21oz) and more Aim Walking Speed (-0.27).
If you are playing on controller and having any trouble hitting your shots, try some KontrolFreek Performance Thumbsticks. They increase control and accuracy while reducing hand strain by increasing the arc distance for your joystick. This enables you to make fine adjustments to your aim more accurately while applying less pressure with your thumbs. Pick up the Modern Warfare II Performance Thumbsticks to show off your love for this game and you’ll also get an in-game code for an exclusive animated calling card!
If you’ve ever watched a killcam of an enemy sniper turning and locking on to you at inhuman speeds and though, “How can they play on that high of a sensitivity?!” then we have the perfect controller upgrade to take your game to the next level. KonrolFreek Precision Rings can be added to any controller thumbsticks to enable you to max out your sensitivity while maintaining accuracy and control. These rings make it so the harder you push on your thumbsticks, the more the material will compact to cushion your stick, adding resistance and preventing you from over-shooting your target.
