The first season of content has bought in a wealth of changes to the free-to-play battle royale, including the addition of the entire Black Ops Cold War weapon arsenal.
With over 30 weapons added to Warzone, it is more than likely that there will be significant changes to the metagame.
One of the new weapons to arrive is the QBZ-83 assault rifle.
In this guide, find the best attachments to use on the weapon and the ultimate loadout for conquering Rebirth Island or dominating downtown Verdansk.
QBZ-83 Assault Rifle
It’s no secret that the QBZ-83 isn’t the most popular assault rifle to use on Black Ops Cold War.
When it comes to Warzone however, it certainly has its uses. Armed with one of the fastest rates of fire in the entire category, the QBZ is deadly in close-quarters situations but thanks to its erratic initial recoil, the weapon becomes tricky to use in any medium to long-distance engagements.
The lack of range and poor recoil can be improved by selecting the right attachments.
But, with so many on offer in the Gunsmith, what exactly are the best attachments to equip?
QBZ-83 Best Attachments
- Muzzle Brake 5.56 (Muzzle)
- 15.5” Takedown (Barrel)
- Diamondback Reflex (Optic)
- Marathon Stock (Stock)
- Foregrip (Underbarrel)
This set of attachments improves the performance of the QBZ in every category apart from its fire rate.
The combination of muzzle brake and foregrip makes the weapon much easier to control thanks to the reductions in horizontal and vertical recoil while the diamondback reflex sight is the ideal optic to use when in a mid-range skirmish with another player.
For some additional mobility, we selected the marathon stock to improve the sprint to fire time, enabling you to react much quicker to an oncoming opponent.
- Muzzle Brake (Muzzle)
- 26.9” HDR Pro (Barrel)
- FTAC Champion (Stock)
- Sleight of Hand (Perk)
- Tac Laser (Laser)
With the QBZ lacking at extremely long distances, the HDR is the perfect weapon to use as a secondary weapon.
If you spot a target from afar with the QBZ, quickly swap to the HDR to take them out with ease.
- Proximity Mine (Lethal)
- Decoy Grenade (Tactical)
Proximity mines in Warzone are heavily underrated. Place one near a Buy Station to catch any players loaded with cash off guard.
The decoy grenade is also underutilised. If you think a player is couped up inside a building, throw a decoy outside of the building to draw them out of the building then pick them off before they even have a chance to fight back.
- Kill Chain (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Tracker (Perk 3)
Kill Chain increases your chances of finding a Killstreak inside a supply box while Overkill enables you to run this deadly AR/sniper combination.
Tracker will enable you to see any enemy footsteps in the nearby area. Follow them for long enough and it could lead you to a straightforward elimination.
