Black Ops Cold War: QBZ-83 Best Loadout, Attachments And Gunsmith Setup For Your Class

Find the ultimate QBZ-83 loadout in this article!

The QBZ-83 assault rifle is one of the brand-new weapons that has been added to the Black Ops Cold War arsenal.

This particular rifle comes with a fully-automatic firing mechanism along with impressive mobility and handling statistics.

Designed between 1989 and 1991, towards the very end of the Cold War, this rifle is based on the Type 95 rifle which was developed by the Chinese.

Thanks to the Gunsmith, there are seemingly limitless combinations of attachments to equip, but what exactly is the very best loadout for the QBZ-83?

The strong mobility enables players to fully utilise the QBZ-83 in a variety of scenarios, whether it’s up close and personal with the opposition or putting down some fire at long-range.

When firing the first few rounds, the recoil can be difficult to control but during sustained fire, the kick does calm down to more manageable levels.

It can be tricky to take down a target from long distances but up close and in mid-range encounters, very few weapons can contend with the QBZ.

QBZ-83 Best Attachments

  • Muzzle Brake 5.56 (Muzzle) 
  • 13.7” Cavalry Lancer (Barrel) 
  • Foregrip (Underbarrel)
  • Quickdraw Handle (Handle) 
  • Tactical Stock (Stock)

The muzzle brake and foregrip reduce horizontal and vertical recoil, making the initial shots much more manageable.

The additions of the quickdraw handle increases aim down sight speed, allowing you to react to any oncoming enemies much faster while the tactical stock drastically improves overall stability when aiming.

Is the QBZ-83 the best AR on Black Ops Cold War?


  • Cigma 2

With so many players opting to use Spy Planes and Counter Spy Planes in order to disrupt you and your team alongside providing additional information, the Cigma 2 makes the perfect accompaniment to this loadout.

This lock-on launcher is ideal for taking out any scorestreaks that patrol the airspace, so keep your eyes peeled in order to earn some additional score and XP.


  • Molotov

The Molotov is a viable alternative to a frag grenade or a Semtex. Thanks to the blazing inferno that appears when it hits a surface, it can deal a prolonged amount of damage, giving you the best possible change of securing a kill with minimal interaction.


  • Stimshot

Field Upgrade

  • Trophy System

Objective modes such as Domination and Hardpoint always feature one particular area of the map that is the focal point of a lot of action.

Deploy a trophy system in a busy area of the map to block any lethal or tactical equipment that could easily stop you in your tracks.


  • Flak Jacket
  • Tactical Mask
  • Ghost

Thanks to the Lawbreaker wildcard, the combination of flak jacket and tactical mask is possible which increases your resistance to enemy lethal and tactical equipment.

Ghost conceals your location on the map when moving. Remember your location will be visible on the minimap when you stop moving so stay on the move!


  • Lawbreaker

This particular wildcard allows you to choose any three perks even if they’re in the same category!
