While a lot of focus is on the mysterious radiation zones that have appeared in Verdansk ahead of an in-game event scheduled to take place on April 21st, the publisher quietly added the Sykov pistol into the Warzone arsenal after it was discovered within the files of the game several months ago.
Players were quick to class the new pistol as overpowered thanks to its incredible rate of fire and a seemingly limitless number of attachment combinations to equip.
In this guide, find the best loadout for the Sykov along with the best attachments to dominate close-quarters gunfights.
Sykov Pistol Warzone
The standout feature of the Sykov is its unmatched rate of fire with the right attachments equipped, making it an obvious choice when it comes to selecting a weapon best suited to close-range engagements.
Thanks to the Gunsmith, there are a number of attachments that can be equipped in order to bolster the versatility of the Sykov, transforming it into arguably the best close-range weapon in the entire battle royale.
But what exactly are the best attachments to equip?
Best Warzone Sykov Attachments
- Monolithic Suppressor (Muzzle)
- Sorokin 140mm Auto (Barrel)
- 5mW Laser (Laser)
- VLK Elite (Rear Grip)
- 20 Round Mags
Since Raven Software nerfed the Akimbo attachment, it's no longer necessary to equip it, freeing up another attachment slot for further customisation possibilities.
This particular loadout is still a fully automatic beast but with just one Sykov in hand, it's much easier to maintain a high level of accuracy, enabling you to down and eliminate a target in just a handful of seconds.
Best Sykov Warzone Loadout
Once you've equipped the deadly combination of attachments, it's important to select other elements of the loadout that will bolster versatility in order to deal with enemies from long distances.
The Kilo 141 has been a mainstay of the Warzone metagame since the battle royale released thanks to its minimal damage drop-off and ease of control at longer ranges.
While the Sykov dominates close-quarters action, the Kilo is the perfect weapon to deal with any opposition in mid and long-range encounters.
- Double Time (Perk 1)
- Ghost (Perk 2)
- Amped (Perk 3)
This set of Perks further improves mobility thanks to Double Time increasing the length of Tactical Sprint, enabling you to traverse the map at a much faster speed.
With no need for Overkill thanks to the Sykov, we opted for Ghost as the second Perk in order to remain hidden from any UAVs attempting to discover our whereabouts.
The third and final Perk is Amped. The Perk provides an increase in weapon swap speed, allowing players to quickly swap between the Sykov and the Kilo depending on the situation.
Is The Sykov Good In Warzone?
YES! The extreme rate of fire combined with the incredible hip-fire accuracy enables players to shred through the armour of an opponent and send them to the gulag at a lightning-fast speed.
It's the best close-range weapon to be using in Warzone by some margin so be sure to add it into your loadouts!
