The submachine gun (SMG) category is one of the most competitive in Season 2 of Warzone Pacific, with players testing a variety of weaponry in order to build the best Warzone loadouts for Caldera. One SMG proving popular is the M1912, otherwise known as the Thompson. Armed with a rapid rate of fire, the M1912 is lethal in close-range combat but its damage drop-off means it struggles at further distances.
By selecting the right combination of attachments the range can be improved alongside the recoil which is tricky to control. In this guide, find the best M1912 Warzone attachments and the best M1912 Warzone loadout to use!
How to Unlock M1912
The M1912 doesn't take a long time to unlock. Available at Level 20, it should only take a few matches to reach, meaning you can begin to increase its Weapon Level to get your hands on some strong attachments that will guarantee to make an impact.
Best M1912 Warzone Attachments
Having experimented with a variety of attachments to tame the recoil, this set of ten guarantees plenty of close-range firepower alongside improvements to mid-range lethality to improve the versatility of the M1928.
- Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
- Barrel: CGC 14.5” Shrouded
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: CGC S Adjustable
- Underbarrel: M1915 Steady
- Magazine: .45 ACP 100 Round Drum
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
Unlike some SMG builds, this set of attachments does feature improvements to hip-fire accuracy which may seem confusing when long-range accuracy is typically the priority. Thanks to the CGC 14.5" Shrouded Barrel and CGC S Adjustable Stock, sprint-to-fire times are improved which allows you to react quickly to any oncoming opponents that appear out of nowhere. To make the most of the SMG, close-range engagements are a must but it can still deal plenty of damage when targets are further away.
Best M1912 Warzone Loadout
With all the attachments ready to go, the rest of the loadout can be fine-tuned to make the most of the high mobility levels and the deadly close-range impact that the M1912 possesses.
- Perk 1: Double Time
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
With maximum mobility in mind, selecting Double Time as the first Perk is a no-brainer. With a doubled Tactical Sprint length, moving around the map quickly is extremely straightforward. It's also advantageous when you need to retreat from an opponent attempting to send you to the Gulag. Next up is Overkill which will allow you to use two primary weapons in the same loadout. We recommend using the NZ-41 alongside the Thompson.
The third and final Perk we've selected is Amped. With faster weapon swap speed, it's easy to switch back and forth between the M1912 and the NZ depending on how far away the intended target is.
- Lethal: Semtex
- Tactical: Stun Grenade
It's hard to go wrong with the combination of Semtex and Stun Grenade. Use the Semtex to deal plenty of explosive damage but don't forget to utilise the Stun Grenade to slow the movement of any nearby opponents attempting to make a quick getaway.
Is The M1912 Good in Warzone?
Having used it in several Vanguard Royale matches, the M1912 is a force to be reckoned with on the streets of Caldera. Very few weapons can contend with the immense rate of fire and mobility, allowing you to take down any opposition that's likely to get up close and personal over the course of a match.
There you have it! That's the best way to optimise the M1912 for Warzone Pacific. For more useful guides, check out the best Type 100 loadout along with the ultimate loadout to use in Vanguard Royale.
