Best Rival-9 Loadout for Warzone

Here’s the best Rival-9 Loadout for Warzone Urzikstan Season One and climb the ranks with the best SMG in Warzone on the new map

The brand new Urzikstan map has finally arrived with Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone Season One. Along with the Urzikstan, this update brought a number of updates to gameplay mechanics, movement and weapons. With so many guns to use in Warzone, it’s tough to find the meta. However, the Rival-9 has quickly become the best SMG to use in Warzone, and here’s the best loadout that you should be running.

Best Rival-9 Loadout for Warzone

  • Barrel: Rival-C Clearshot Barrel
  • Muzzle: Purifier Muzzle Brake
  • Underbarrel: BR-6 Handstop
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Rival Vice Assault Grip

This Rival-9 loadout is built to be fast and mobile, allowing you to shred through enemies in close quarters on Urzikstan. However, this Rival-9 loadout also needs to be solid at medium ranges, so we start the loadout with the Rival-C Clearshot Barrel and Purifier Muzzle Brake as they improve recoil control massively.

The DR-6 Handstop Underbarrel increases the mobility of the Rival-9, while the Rival Vice Assault Grip further increases recoil control. Finally, we’re using the 40 Round Magazine to allow us to eliminate multiple enemies without the need to reload.

Best Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Hardened
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: High Alert
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

Warzone Perk Packages are different to Multiplayer, however, these Perk Packages can be used for every loadout no matter what Primary weapon you’re running. To start, we’re using Double Time to increase our Tac Sprint, allowing us to move around Urzikstan much faster. And Hardened to nerf any incoming tactical equipment.

Tempered is the best Perk in Warzone Season One, as this reduces the number of armor plates needed to just two, ensuring that you are always at full health. Finally, High Alert will notify you when an enemy is looking towards you, allowing you to always be ready for a gunfight.
