November 17, 2023: Season 6 is coming to an end and we've got the best Warzone RPK loadout and the best attachments to use in our guide.

The best Warzone RPK loadout once dominated Call of Duty's battle royale thanks to its incredible in-game performance. But, with Season 6 in full swing, it remains a viable option as the Warzone meta continues to evolve.

Armed with a steady rate of fire, the RPK remains a solid option after dodging the latest weapon buffs and nerfs. With a strong set of attachments ready to go before dropping into the action, you can still score plenty of kills with this particular LMG.

Before we take a closer look at the best RPK loadout, check out our guides revealing the best AR and the best graphics settings to ensure your game runs smoothly.

What is the best Warzone 2 RPK loadout?

  • Muzzle: TY-LR8
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4
  • Rear Grip: Demo-X2 Grip
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity

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 we recommend for the rest of Season 5:

  • Muzzle: TY-LR8
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4
  • Rear Grip: Demo-X2 Grip
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity

Rather than opting for a barrel, there aren't any damage enhancements for the best Warzone RPK loadout. Instead, the TY-LR8 muzzle provides some much-needed horizontal recoil control.

For a crystal-clear view of the target, the Aim OP-V4 offers a simple scope that's perfect for mid-range engagements.

The FTAC Ripper 56 provides even further recoil control 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:

Perk package

  • Base: Bomb Squad
  • Base: Double Time
  • Bonus: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate: High Alert

Like most perk packages in Season 5, High Alert is the star of the show thanks to its improvements to your awareness. Your vision will pulse once an opponent out of view has spotted you, giving you a few seconds to decide if it's worth taking the fight or retreating to cover.


  • Semtex (Lethal)
  • Tear Gas (Tactical)

Is the RPK good in Warzone 2?

Despite receiving several nerfs in Season 3, it remains a strong option to use in Season 5. Thanks to its impressive damage output and ease of use, it outperforms the majority of the category and some more popular assault rifles.

Although it's no longer part of the meta, its ease of use is hugely appealing if you're looking for a weapon to take down multiple enemies with ease.
