The Milano 821 arrived into the Warzone arsenal in late 2020 as part of Black Ops Cold War's integration into the popular battle royale. If you've had the privilege of unlocking the 'Red Room' blueprint from the Rebirth Island Easter Egg, you'll understand why the Milano frequently features in many loadouts.
This small, but incredibly mighty weapon is one of the stronger SMGs in the category, boasting very strong accuracy when firing from the hip in Season 4 Reloaded of Warzone underway, and thanks to a dose of weapon tuning, the Milano has skyrocketed in popularity.
Here's the best Milano 821 Warzone loadout to build to dominate Verdansk and Rebirth Island.
Milano 821 Warzone Loadout
The Milano 821 has one of the lowest rates of fire out of all the SMGs in Warzone. Despite this, its recoil is very easy to control making it very effective when engaging with a target at mid to long-distance.
While the slow fire rate may be a deal-breaker for many players, the Milano has one of the highest damage outputs in the SMG category, so it may be worth changing your mind and dropping into a game with it equipped.
Considering the Milano is a solid weapon without any attachments, which attachments set it apart from the rest of the field?
Milano 821 Warzone Best Attachments
- 10.5” Ranger (Barrel)
- Wire Stock (Stock)
- SASR Jungle Grip (Rear Grip)
- STANAG 55 Rnd Drum (Ammunition)
- Foregrip (Underbarrel)
Thanks to the low recoil levels of the Milano, there is no need to add a muzzle, freeing up another attachment slot.
The ranger barrel improves performance at range, further increasing its viability in mid-range gunfights while the choice of stock and rear grip reduce sprint to fire and aim down sight times, enabling you to react quickly to any opposition that stands in your way.
Milano 821 Warzone Class
- FORGE TAC Sentry (Barrel)
- FTAC Close Quarters Pro (Pumps)
- Rubberized Grip Tape (Rear Grip)
- Dragon’s Breath Rounds (Ammunition)
- Ranger Foregrip (Underbarrel)
Due to the slow rate of fire, it is easy to be outgunned by a faster firing weapon in close-quarters battles which is why we have selected the R9-0 shotgun as our secondary weapon.
This particular build is unmatched at close range, dealing two rapid shots to break any armour, and another two to send the opponent straight to the Gulag.
- Frag Grenade (Lethal)
- Smoke Grenade (Tactical)
This combination of grenades may be used a lot but that is because it is so effective.
Use the frag to clear out a congested building or attempt a Hail Mary into the distance for a spectacular elimination.
The smoke grenade is just as versatile. Disguise a potential flank by popping it in front of you before heading around the side or simply throw it at the enemy to bamboozle them while you make an escape.
- Cold-Blooded (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Tracker (Perk 3)
Cold-Blooded keeps your heat signatures hidden from any thermal optics while Overkill gives you the ability to run a deadly shotgun as a secondary.
The third Perk we selected is Tracker. Keep your eyes peeled to the ground for any enemy footsteps that could lead you towards another elimination.
