The secondary pistols in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 feature some of the most powerful weapons in the entire game. From the devastating Basilisk with Snakeshot ammunition to the pocket-SMG in the X13 Auto, pistols have a firm place in the weapon meta of Season 2. However, perhaps better than both of those pistols is the P890, which is currently seeing the highest usage for any pistol. The P890 made our list of the top five best weapons in Modern Warfare 2, and its best loadout in Warzone 2 is equally strong.
Many content creators and streamers have deemed the P890 to be the best pistol in Warzone 2, even using it on their primary loadouts. With the right attachments, the P890 can be as lethal as a submachine gun in close-range. This frees up players to equip another Base Perk aside from Overkill, as the P890 can take the place of a secondary SMG. Of course, in order to get the P890 to that kind of strength, players need the best set of attachments for the pistol.

As some players might expect, the best form of the P890 comes with Akimbo equipped. This gives players two of the pistols, one in each hand, to maximize their damage at close range. It’s not recommended to use the P890 with Akimbo at anything but close range, as the accuracy drops tremendously the farther away an enemy is.
