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 Warzone SMGs, boasting very strong accuracy when firing from the hip. With Season 4 in its early stages, the Milano continues to prove a popular weapon of choice despite regular doses of weapon balancing from Raven Software.

While it doesn't feature in the Warzone meta, the Milano 821 remains a viable option for those looking for some close-quarters firepower.

The suppressor extends bullet velocity while the combination of stock and underbarrel increases mobility levels even higher to maximise movement speed.

Milano 821 Warzone Overview

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?

Best Milano 821 Warzone Attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: Microflex LED
  • Stock: Marathon Stock
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Magazine: 45 Rnd Drum

Thanks to the low recoil levels of the Milano, there's plenty of opportunity to customise the SMG to improve damage output and mobility.

The choice of a suppressor is a certainty considering its ability to silence gunfire and increase bullet velocity while the rest of the loadout is designed to ensure high levels of mobility are maintained throughout intense gunfights.

Overall, this build is extremely easy to use and is more than capable of shredding through the opposition at short distances.

Best Milano 821 Warzone Perks and Equipment

Once the best Milano 821 Warzone attachments are ready for battle, it's time to take a look at the selection of Perks and Equipment that can add even more improvements to the SMG. Here's what we recommend.


  • 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.


  • EOD (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Amped (Perk 3)

EOD increases your resistance to any incoming explosives which is particularly handy when attempting to evade any grenades. Overkill allows you to carry two primary weapons in the same loadout. We recommend the NZ-41 assault rifle for some additional mid-range firepower.

Lastly is Amped. The increase in weapon swap speed means you can switch between the Milano and the NZ-41 as fast as possible which is ideal for reacting to any situation.

Is The Milano 821 Good in Warzone?

The Milano 821 won't change the existing meta anytime soon but it's still a good alternative to other SMGs proving popular. Its high mobility alongside its lack of recoil makes it incredibly easy to control but the damage drop-off at longer distances lets it down.
