For the most part, the Vanguard and Modern Warfare weapons have completely taken over Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5. Given the steadiness of the Vanguard guns and the recent buffs to Modern Warfare weaponry, there’s not much room for anything else. Of course, the only other game that players could take guns from is Black Ops Cold War. While the Vanguard and Modern Warfare guns might be stronger overall, there are still some diamonds in the rough in Cold War. One of these diamonds is the OTs 9 submachine gun, which features a top-tier loadout in Warzone.
The OTs 9 was once at the very top of the SMG meta in Warzone. Then, Vanguard came along and the OTs 9 plummeted down the pick rate charts. Despite this, the OTs 9 is just as strong today as it was back during the Cold Way days of Warzone. This means players can use its same meta loadout and likely have success with it, at least in close-range gunfights. While there might be stronger SMGs in Season 5, the OTs 9 can certainly hold its own.
Best OTs 9 loadout in Warzone
As of right now, the OTs 9 has a pick rate of 0.27 according to WZRanked, which is right around the median for pick rates in Season 5. It’s definitely not the lowest-picked weapon, but it’s also nowhere near the top. Though that’s not likely to change in Season 5, players who do decide to give the OTs 9 a chance won’t be disappointed, especially when they throw on its best attachments.
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
- Barrel: 8.1” Task Force
- Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
- Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
- Ammunition: VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag
The main purpose of the OTs 9 loadout is to increase its damage range and mobility. With these two stats increased, it can compete better with some of the current meta Vanguard SMGs in Warzone.
