The first season of Warzone 2 is underway and as players drop into the battle royale, the best Warzone 2 RPK loadout is the talk of the town as players attempt to establish the meta. The RPK is one of six light machine guns available to use in a loadout and is proving a hit in Al Mazrah.


Featuring a fast rate of fire and surprisingly high mobility for an LMG, the RPK excels in mid-range engagements and with some trigger discipline, it's very easy to deal damage at longer distances.

Like the majority of Warzone 2 builds, this one decreases handling and mobility in order to accommodate increases in damage, range, and accuracy.

Although the in-game weapon statistics look like handling takes a huge hit, there are hardly any differences.

Best Warzone 2 RPK attachments

The Warzone 2 gunsmith contains a wide range of attachments allowing you to gear any weapon to suit your style of play. After testing various combinations, this set of five stands out from the crowd thanks to its wide range of improvements. Here's the full attachment list:

  • Muzzle: ZLR Talon 5
  • Optic: SZ Vortex-90
  • Stock: FT TAC-Elite Stock
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity

Rather than opting for a barrel, the only damage enhancements come from the ZLR Talon 5 muzzle which increases damage range and bullet velocity.

For a crystal-clear view of the target, the SZ Vortex-90 offers a holographic sight in addition to a scope with a five-time magnifier perfect for those long-range battles.

With extra power, the FT TAC-Elite stock provides much-needed recoil control along with the FTAC Ripper 56 in order to hit the target with ease.

How to unlock RPK in Warzone 2

The RPK is part of the Kastovia weapon platform in Warzone 2, meaning you need to use another gun in order to obtain the LMG.


Reach level 16 with the Kastov 762 assault rifle to get your hands on the RPK. We recommend using a double weapon XP token to reach the target as fast as possible.

Best Warzone 2 RPK perk package and equipment

Once the best RPK attachments are ready to use, finding a perk package and equipment combination that provides even more benefits is the next step to building the best loadout. Here's what we recommend using alongside the LMG:
