Armed with a huge magazine as standard and a lethal rate of fire, the PSDW 528 heavily resembles the legendary P90 from the previous Call of Duty titles.

Best Warzone 2 PDSW 528 attachments

The Warzone 2 gunsmith is packed with a huge range of attachments containing various pros and cons. Most improve damage and recoil while others impact mobility and handling. After testing numerous combinations, this set of five is particularly strong:

  • Muzzle: Bruen Pendulum
  • Barrel: FTAC Series IX 14.5"
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Stock: CQB Stock
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip

The Bruen Pendulum muzzle provides enough horizontal and recoil control that ensures high accuracy is maintained. The FTAC Series IX barrel comes with improvements in damage range and bullet velocity which improves mid-range performance significantly.

Fast reaction times are a key ingredient to achieving success which is where the Bruen Q900 Grip and CQB Stock come into their own. The enhancements to aim-down sight speed and sprint-to-fire time give you the ability to snap onto any target that moves into the crosshair.

How to unlock PSDW 528 in Warzone 2

The PSDW 528 is incredibly easy to unlock as it's one of the first weapons available to use in a Warzone 2 loadout. Simply reach level 5 to start using the SMG.

There's no need to use a double XP token to reach the specified level but we do recommend using a double weapon XP token to unlock all of the attachments as fast as possible.
