Codenamed 'Assault Rifle Charlie, the Krig 6 is an incredibly underrated assault rifle considering it is one of the best in Cold War.
Season 2 of Black Ops Cold War is underway and the recent Ice Drake Mastercraft bundle has released.
Boasting one of the best skins and features since release, the weapon is a popular choice for players; especially as its for a heavily meta weapon.
Here's the best loadout for this weapon in Black Ops Cold War.
Assault Rifle Charlie Loadout
There are several styles of play that work extremely well with the Krig 6.
The combination of moderate damage and fire rate means it can be effective at close-range, and thanks to its ease of control and lack of recoil, it can be lethal even at the longest of distances.
That means its a versatile weapon with a lot to offer. It's a weapon that excels in Search & Destroy where you need to use your class to its fullest capacity and can't use the Lawbreaker Wild Card.
Assault Rifle Charlie Best Attachments
- Muzzle Brake 5.56 (Muzzle)
- 19.7” Takedown (Barrel)
- Field Agent Grip (Underbarrel)
- Speed Tape (Handle)
- Wire Stock (Stock)
This combination of attachments suits all styles of play.
The addition of the muzzle brake and the field agent grip reduces recoil to non-existent levels, the speed tape increases aim down sight speed, allowing you to react quickly, and the wire stock improves the sprint to fire speed by 10%, which allows you to quickly react to a target if they suddenly appear in your vision.
Is the Krig 6 the best assault rifle in the game?
If you're looking to play a bit more stealthy, consider using the Suppressor to conceal your shots.
When on maps with lots of walls and blockades, such as Checkmate, trying using the 19.7" Ranger to increase the bullet velocity and deal more damage through objects.
If you'd like a bit more strafe action when shooting and moving (whilst ADS) try using the regular Foregrip underbarrel and the SAS Combat Stock.
Assault Rifle Charlie Pro Class
- Millstop Reflex (Optic)
- 19.7" Ranger (Barrel)
- Field Agent Grip (Underbarrel)
- Airborne Elastic Wrap (Handle)
- Raider Stock (Stock)
The role of the assault rifle player often revolves around locking down specific areas of the map from a distance, and this combination of attachments allows you to do just that.
The underbarrel brings down recoil to minimal levels, drastically improving its accuracy while the rest of the attachments assist by increasing aim down sight speed, sprint to fire time and bullet velocity.
Assault Rifle Charlie Class
- Duckbill Choke (Muzzle)
- 24.6” Ranger (Barrel)
- SWAT 5mw Laser Sight (Body)
- 9 Rd Tube (Magazine)
- Duster Stock (Stock)
This semi-automatic shotgun is the perfect accompaniment to this Krig 6 loadout.
Armed with attachments to increase damage range, hipfire accuracy and sliding speed, it’s ideal to use in close-quarters scenarios where the Krig may not be able to contend.
The Semtex is a deadly piece of equipment thanks to the ability to stick it to any surface on the map. Use it to clear out an objective or the balcony overlooking the outdoor area of Miami where there is always a sniper picking off your comrades with ease.
- Stun Grenade
It’s very hard to go wrong with selecting a stun grenade as your tactical equipment. Use it to halt the progress of enemies rushing towards your position and disorient their vision, making them easy pickings for either your primary or secondary weapon.
- Field Mic
Field mics are one of the most useful field upgrades to be using on Black Ops Cold War. Place it in a congested area of the map to reveal the exact location of any opponents in its vicinity.
- Tactical Mask
Tactical mask increases your resistance to stun and flash grenades, which is extremely handy if you plan on playing with plenty of aggression.
Assassin enables you to see enemies that are on a scorestreak. Look out for the crosshair on your mini-map, take them down, and receive an additional score bonus, enabling you to earn your scorestreaks quicker.
It’s hard to choose anything other than Ghost as the third perk. It conceals your location from any enemy Spy Planes when moving, making navigating the map a lot easier knowing the entire enemy team cannot see your position.
- Danger Close
Further increase your damage output with two additional pieces of lethal and tactical equipment.
Two well-timed throws of the Semtex could easily result in plenty of additional kills and an extra stun grenade could well be the difference between you continuing your rampage, or sending you to the killcam!
Tips And Tricks
As one of the assault rifles where its mobility often hinders its close-quarters performance, the best strategy to adopt with the Krig 6 equipped is to lock down the lanes from afar.
While it may not be running and gunning enemies at close range, dominating the long-range battles with the Krig 6 in hand is a very effective way to rack up plenty of kills alongside providing much-needed support for your fellow teammates.
