Currently in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded, there are a plethora of weapons that don’t see much use whatsoever. The game has been dominated by a few select guns since the start of its life cycle in November. This has left little room for other weapons to rise through the ranks and insert themselves into the meta without a major weapon balancing update aiding their journey.
If players are looking to use one of the lesser-used guns in Warzone 2, we recommend starting with the PDSW 58, which has a terrific loadout for close-mid range gunfights on Al Mazrah.
The PDSW 58 is a replica of the P90 from previous Modern Warfare titles. It has the same large base magazine in addition to clean iron sights and great mobility. Where it always falls flat compared to other SMGs is in the damage range department. The PDSW 58 has a hard time keeping up with guns like the Fennec 45 and the Vaznev-9K in Warzone 2.
However, with some new attachments, the PDSW can become a comparable SMG to those meta weapons.
Best PDSW 58 loadout in Warzone 2
The goal with the PDSW 58’s loadout is to improve its overall damage range, recoil control, and keep its mobility high. With all of these stats improved, the SMG can win any gunfight within reason.
- Barrel: 18.75″ Cloak 90
- Laser: VLK LZR 7mW
- Stock: Guard Duty Stock
- Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip
- Comb: TV TACCOMB
As players can see, we’ve opted to go with no optic for this particular loadout. We feel the PDSW 58 has sufficient enough iron sights to warrant an attachment slot being put to good use elsewhere. However, if players want to run an optic, they should go with something like the Cronen Mini Pro, or any simple red dot sight that’s comparable.
