Submachine guns (SMG) often feature in the loadouts of Warzone players thanks to their immense rate of fire and high damage output in close-quarters scenarios. Throughout the duration of Season 2, Vanguard's MP40 dominated the metagame and with Season 5 underway, a new contender has joined the party.
One of the new guns and weapons slotting into the ever-changing meta is the H4 Blixen, a compact SMG armed with "a 9 x 19mm cartridge" and characteristics similar to the Sten and PPSh-41 from Vanguard.
With players continuing to drop into the action and making the best of Warzone double XP events, the H4 Blixen could keep its place in the meta unless Raven Software decides to intervene with another dose of buffs and nerfs. With that said, find the best H4 Blixen Warzone loadout in this guide.
What is the best H4 Blixen Warzone loadout?
|Barrel||Bergström 17" F3|
|Magazine||9mm 72 Round Mags|
|Rear Grip||Taped Grip|
With Season 5 in full swing, we've had the chance to use the H4 Blixen and it's holding its position as the best Warzone SMG. Here's the full attachment list.
This particular build is extremely effective in close-quarters engagements despite its moderate rate of fire.
The improvements to already impressive mobility levels allow you to outplay and outgun any nearby opposition with ease.

How to unlock H4 Blixen
Thanks to the Season 4 Reloaded update, there's no need to complete any kind of challenge to get your hands on the H4 Blixen.
In previous seasons, completing a challenge or purchasing a store bundle with an H4 Blixen blueprint included.
Best H4 Blixen Warzone attachments
As the H4 Blixen shares characteristics with the Sten and the PPSH, there's a chance a build focusing on improving damage output will serve you well on Caldera and Rebirth Island. Here are the attachments we recommend using:
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Bergström 17" F3
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: Removed Stock
- Underbarrel: SG98 Compact
- Magazine: 9mm 72 Round Mags
- Ammunition: FMJ Rounds
- Rear Grip: Taped Grip
- Perk: Fleet
- Perk 2: Quick
This set of attachments is capable of contending with the very best SMGs in Warzone. The choice of barrel minimises any damage drop-off further improving mid-range performance while the Taped Grip increases aiming stability in order to maintain focus on the target.
Overall, this build is extremely versatile and continues to hold its own as the Season 5 meta continues to take shape.
Best H4 Blixen Warzone perks and equipment
With the best H4 Blixen attachments ready for battle, building a combination of Perks and Equipment capable of adding further benefits to the loadout is the key to success. Here's what we recommend.
- EOD (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Combat Scout (Perk 3)
This particular set of Perks is extremely strong, especially in close-quarters situations. EOD increases your resistance to incoming explosives while Overkill grants you the ability to equip two primary weapons in the same loadout. In this case, we recommend pairing the H4 Blixen with the Automaton assault rifle.
Last but not least is Combat Scout. If you manage to land a few shots onto the target, a bright orange outline will highlight their location, making it very easy to spot them in amongst the foliage and dark corners.

- Semtex (Lethal)
- Stim (Tactical)
We've gone with a Semtex instead of a Frag Grenade due to its ability to stick to various items during a Warzone match. Use it to destroy any nearby vehicles or stick it to an opponent for a guaranteed kill.
For our Tactical, the Stim is excellent to capitalise on the H4 Blixen's high mobility. Use it for a boost of health and a temporary increase in speed to evade any sticky situations.
Is the H4 Blixen good in Warzone?
After using the H4 Blixen on Caldera and Rebirth Island, the H4 Blixen is a lethal SMG to use in the battle royale. Although the unlock challenge is annoying, it can contend with the very best SMGs available in Warzone.
I recommend giving it a test before ruling it out of your loadout.
