KSP 45 Cold War Loadout, Best Attachments, Setup And Best Build For Your Class

+ 1

The KSP 45 is a unique and attractive option in Black Ops Cold War Season 2, thanks to its one outstanding feature - the 3-round burst.


This SMG stands out from the rest in this particular category thanks to a burst-fire mechanism and extremely high damage in medium-range encounters.

Eagle-eyed players may see some resemblances with the iconic UMP 45 SMG from previous titles, but this is far from a replica.

It prevents a real high-risk high reward dynamic - if you don't land your shots you'll suffer the consequences.

Here's the best loadout for the KSP 45 in Cold War's multiplayer.


Armed with impressive speed and firepower statistics, the KSP 45 is arguably one of the most versatile pieces of weaponry in the game.

Thanks to the high damage output, it dominates in close-quarters situations, and with a bit of trigger discipline, it can easily contend with some assault rifles at longer distances.

The time between bursts is minimal, enabling the KSP 45 to be equally as effective as its fully automatic counterparts in the SMG category.

Regardless of attachment combination, recoil is at its minimum, making it extremely easy for players of all abilities to pick up the KSP 45 and make an impact on the battlefield.

KSP 45 Best Attachments

  • Microflex LED (Optic)
  • Muzzle Brake .45 APC (Muzzle)
  • 10.4” Takedown (Barrel)
  • Steady Aim Laser (Body)
  • Front Grip (Underbarrel)
  • Fast Mag (Magazine)
  • Warden Tight Grip (Handle)
  • Wire Stock (Stock)

The choice of muzzle brake and front grip reduces recoil to minimal levels while the takedown barrel increases the effective damage range by 25%, further increasing its versatility at long-distance.

The tight grip and wire stock allow players to emphasise their domination of the close-range game by increasing aiming speed and aim flinch stability which gives you an increased focus when taking fire from an opponent.

The KSP 45 is one of the more unique weapons in Black Ops Cold War


Hauer 77

  • Duckbill Choke (Muzzle)
  • 22" Extended (Barrel)
  • Steady Aim Laser (Body)
  • Quickdraw Handle (Handle)
  • Tactical Stock (Stock)

If you get caught out thanks to a well-timed slide over the top of your position, quickly swapping to this fully-equipped Hauer 77 is the perfect tool to eliminate them before they have time to turn around and attempt to take you out.

Often a one-shot kill in close quarters, the pump-action shotgun is the perfect weapon to further assert your authority when up close and personal with the enemy.


  • Frag Grenade

It’s hard to go wrong with selecting a frag grenade as your lethal piece of equipment. There’s no better feeling when you score a kill after launching a frag across the map, much to the surprise of the enemy!


  • Stimshot

When using the KSP 45, it’s more than likely that you will be in areas of the map where the majority of the action takes place.

By equipping the stimshot, it gives you a quick boost of health which is perfect when you are on the verge of succumbing to an opponent in the heat of battle.

Field Upgrade

  • SAM Turret

This loadout offers little to no resistance to any air-based scorestreaks such as the Attack Helicopter and the Chopper Gunner.

Place a SAM Turret in an open area of the map to deal damage to any streaks in the sky.


  • Gunfighter

By equipping this wildcard, you can select a total of eight attachments to equip to the KSP 45.

With a fully-equipped KSP 45 in your hands, the potential to end the game at the top of the scoreboard is extremely high!
