Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is home to some of the most iconic guns from the franchise; from the MSMC to the DSR-50, there is no shortage of recognizable weapons from the Black Ops series’ second installment. However, there’s one gun that has stood the test of time and can be recreated in Call of Duty: Warzone; The Skorpion EVO, a classic submachine gun from BO2 that veterans know by its amazingly fast fire rate. The gun’s recreation in Warzone is made possible thanks to one particular weapon blueprint for the CX-9 SMG.
While this isn’t the same exact experience as using the original Skorpion EVO, it’s the closest thing that fans can come to in Warzone. Like the Skorpion EVO, this version has an incredibly high fire rate, moderate damage, and great mobility. As expected, the range and recoil on this weapon aren’t the best, which makes it an ideal candidate for a second primary weapon on a loadout or the primary gun for smaller maps, Rebirth Island or the upcoming Fortune’s Keep map.
The Skorpion EVO in Warzone
This recreation was made public by Call of Duty YouTuber TheKoreanSavage, who discovered that the CX-9 Serac weapon blueprint from Modern Warfare is the closest thing to the Skorpion in the modern age of COD. The Serac blueprint isn’t necessary to recreate the Skorpion, but it does come with many of the attachments players will need; it also has the same appearance and color as the original Skorpion EVO.
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
- Magazine: 50 Round Drums
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
With these attachments on a Warzone loadout for the CX-9, players essentially have a modern version of the Skorpion EVO. While it might not be the strongest weapon to use in Warzone, it’s certainly one of the most unique and enjoyable.
