In Call of Duty: Warzone, a submachine gun has rarely been considered the absolute best in class. The Modern Warfare MP5 held the claim for a spell after the battle royale initially released, but the gun has gone through its fair share of weapon tuning. Season 3 is no different, as multiple SMGs are in use by the player base, all worthy of being called the best.
Despite that, the most popular choice as of the time of publication is the Mac-10. Introduced in Season 1, the Mac-10 is one of the fastest firing weapons in the game. This means the damage-per-second is insanely high, but so is the recoil, making it somewhat difficult to use. Of course, that recoil can be mitigated with the right loadout, which furthers the claim that the Mac-10 is the best SMG in Warzone.
Best Mac-10 loadout in Warzone
While some players might completely disregard the Mac-10 thanks to its recoil, it’s starting to become the meta in Season 3. Even MLB star Mike Trout believes it’s the dominant SMG in the new season, as shown last night during a game.

If players are concerned about the gun’s recoil (or any other aspect for that matter), the recommended loadout should put those doubts to rest. This Mac-10 can singlehandedly eliminate full squads in close quarters, making it a preferred choice over most other close-range weapons.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum
- Stock: Raider Stock
To deal with the weapon’s moderate recoil, the Agency Suppressor and Field Agent Grip work nicely. With both of these attachments, the horizontal and vertical recoil is reduced greatly and players can stay off the radar with the Suppressor.
For damage, the 5.9″ Task Force barrel is the best option. It increases damage, range and bullet velocity while only sacrificing some recoil that’s already being covered by the previous two attachments.
Wrapping up the loadout is the Raider Stock to increase sprint-to-fire time and the 53 RND Drum mag for some extra bullets. With that, players should be mowing down entire squads, no problem.
