Best PPSh-41 Warzone Loadout: Class Setup, Attachments, Perks

The best PPSh-41 CoD Warzone loadout will have you tearing through Caldera, and we’ve got the strongest attachments and perks you need to get the most out of the speedy Vanguard MP in Call of Duty’s battle royale extravaganza.

CoD Vanguard’s PPSh-41 is one of the most versatile SMGs in War Zone Pacific. It’s more than capable of wiping out a squad, but with the right setup, it can rise to be one of the top guns in battle royale today.

Not only that, but the weapon even received a few buffs that put it ahead of the MP40 qualitatively, and despite some quick nerfs, the weapon still proves an absolute menace in the hot tropics of Caldera. To give you the best chance of success, we’ve put together the absolute best PPSh-41 loadout to use to dominate Warzone Pacific.

From the optimal gear to the strongest perks, here’s everything you need to know.


Best PPSh-41 Warzone Loadout

Warzone Gunsmith Loadout by PPSh-41

This PPSh-41 loadout prioritizes movement speed.

  • Snout: recoil booster
  • Barrel: ZAK 300mm
  • Optics: slate reflector
  • Share: ZAC convolution
  • underflow: Mark VI skeleton
  • Magazine: 7.62mm Gorenko 71 round magazines
  • Ammo Type: Extended
  • Rear handle: fabric handle
  • Advantage 1: fleet
  • Advantage 2: Fully loaded

With 10 attachments to choose from, it’s important to have a clear objective in Warzone’s Gunsmith. For this particular PPSh-41 build, we aim to increase movement speed without sacrificing too much accuracy.

At the beginning we have them Recoil Booster Muzzle, perhaps the most important choice in the entire setup. This attachment increases your rate of fire, thereby drastically improving damage output.

That ZAC 300mm barrel is the first of many picks aimed at improving recoil control. Likewise, that’s where the ZAC folding stock comes into play to keep your shots on point.

Initial accuracy is key with the PPSh-41, as you will rarely be holding the trigger.

Well, to improve mobility, there are four important attachments that cannot be overlooked. In the first place is the Mark VI Skeletal Underbarrel. This choice improves your ADS speed, allowing you to fire on a target faster than usual with the PPSh-41.

Same goes for the Cloth handle Rear handle to further improve this statistic, and the Slate reflector optics also does a lot to help you get in and out of gunfights as quickly as possible.

Rounding out this loadout we have fleet and Fully loaded for the two weapon perks. The former sticks to our targets and massively increases movement speed, while the latter ensures you don’t run out of ammo in intense firefights.

Best PPSh-41 Warzone Class: Perks and Gear

Choosing the right equipment is just as important as the right attachments.

  • Advantage 1: EOD
  • Advantage 2: overkill
  • Advantage 3: Combat Scout
  • Secondary: BAR
  • Fatal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stim

This PPSh-41 build matches and comes equipped with most of the meta loadouts in Warzone EOD and overkill. However, we went for a niche selection in the third slot Combat Scout.

Given the layout of Caldera and the abundance of bushes throughout the island, this perk is extremely helpful. With just a single hit of damage, enemy targets are highlighted by walls, trees, cliffs, etc. There’s no better way to keep tabs on your opponent than with Combat Scout.

Combat Scout is a Warzone-exclusive perk and shines on Caldera.

When it comes to gear, there’s no escaping Warzone Pacific’s classic frag grenade and polished stims. While the health recovery from Stims is certainly important, it’s the speed boosts that make the difference.

Popping a Stim at the right time can throw you into a fight and take out enemies before they even have a chance to react.

How to unlock the PPSh-41 in Warzone

To unlock the PPSh-41 you need to level up in Warzone or Vanguard.

To unlock the PPSh-41 SMG in Warzone, this is what you need to do Reach level 51. This can be done either in Warzone itself or in Vanguard’s multiplayer modes. If you have access to both, your progress will even transfer between the two.

Once you have access to the powerful weapon, you can grind your way through its own levels to unlock the strongest attachments listed above.

Alternatives to the PPSh-41 Warzone loadout

Cooper Carbine Warzone loading screen

The best Cooper Carbine Warzone Loadout increases the weapon’s rate of fire.

If the fast-firing PPSh-41 doesn’t quite do it for you, an assault rifle like the Cooper Carbine might be your best bet, or even that Welgun. It’s still a relatively new weapon since it arrived in Season 1, it quickly became a problem in Caldera.

Our Optimum Cooper Carbine Loadout allows you to break through squads at much longer ranges than the PPSh-41. You’ll lose a bit of your agility, but it’s a great alternative if you want to mix things up.

So that’s all there is to know about the best PPSh-41 build in Warzone today. While it’s a top contender at the moment, frequent balance updates are sure to keep the meta flowing.
