November 11, 2022: As Season 5 comes to an end, the best Vanguard PPSH Warzone loadout continues to prove popular. Scroll down for the best loadout and best attachments to equip.

Season 5 of Warzone is well underway and as players continue to drop onto Caldera, Fortune's Keep, and Rebirth Island, many are starting to utilise the PPSH submachine gun from Vanguard to gain the upper hand over the opposition.

Armed with an incredible rate of fire, the PPSH is capable of excelling in close-quarters combat. However, due to its fast fire rate, the recoil is tricky to tame. Thankfully, the Gunsmith allows you to customise the gun to suit all styles of play.

After several attempts to find the very best loadout for the PPSH, we've settled on this particular combination thanks to its improvements in recoil, damage drop-off, and ammo capacity.

How to unlock Vanguard PPSH in Warzone

To get your hands on this particular SMG, players need to reach Level 51 which can take a while. We recommend using a Double XP Token to reach this level as quickly as possible.

Best Vanguard PPSH Warzone attachments

The PPSH-41 has a deadly rate of fire but also features high levels of recoil that need to be tamed in order to excel in close-range scenarios. Check out the list below for the best attachments you should be using to increase its stability and make it a reliable gun.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 230mm B03P
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8mm Nambu 71 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Quick

This particular build excels in close-quarters combat. The recoil booster increases the fire rate while the Tight Grip Perk ensures recoil levels don't impact accuracy.

Overall, this set of attachments is capable of shredding through the armour of opponents in the blink of an eye, even when firing from the hip. The hip-fire accuracy is the star of the show, providing you with laser-like spray without the need to spend additional time aiming down the sights.

Best Vanguard PPSH-41 Warzone perks and equipment

Once the attachments have been equipped, selecting how the rest of the loadout will function is equally as important. Find the best perks to use along with a deadly combination of equipment to deal further damage below.


  • Double Time (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Amped (Perk 3)

The Double Time perk utilises the incredible mobility of the PPSH, doubling the length of Tactical Sprint, making it very easy to navigate Caldera. Overkill gives you the ability to equip two primary weapons in the same loadout while Amped provides a significant decrease in weapon swap speed, enabling you to switch between the weapons.


  • Throwing Knife (Lethal)
  • Stim (Tactical)

The Throwing Knife is the fastest way to guarantee a kill when an opponent is downed. Alongside the throwables, the Stim provides instant health regeneration alongside a temporary speed boost.

Is the Vanguard PPSH good in Warzone?

Having used the PPSH when up close and personal with the opposition, I can safely say that the SMG excels thanks to the fire rate. It shreds through armour plates with ease and sends your target to the Gulag in the blink of an eye. I can certainly see it becoming a hugely popular weapon of choice as Season 5 progresses.
