The PKM is one of the original weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone and has been used in a variety of metas since 2020. It was one of the first top light machine guns in the class before the Bruen MK9 came along and destroyed everything in its path. While fans might have forgotten about the PKM in Warzone Season 6, it still features a loadout that stacks up with other top weapons.
As one would expect, the PKM hasn’t changed much since the early days of Warzone. Since Raven Software is more concerned with the overpowered or underpowered weapons of the game, the LMG hasn’t had too much weapon balancing. This is great for players hoping to return to the PKM, or those who want to try it for the first time, as it can still shred like it did in the early seasons.
Best PKM loadout in Warzone
The PKM is a Modern Warfare weapon, so it’s going to feature a loadout that looks similar to other long-range guns in Warzone. The attachments in use are simply the best options for a weapon like the PKM, boosting the weapon’s damage range, recoil and mobility.
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: 26.9″ Extended Barrel
- Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
This PKM loadout begins as many other Warzone classes do, with the Monolithic Suppressor. This muzzle, paired with the 26.9″ Extended Barrel, greatly improves the PKM’s damage range and bullet velocity. The muzzle also keeps players off of the radar when firing.
For standard recoil control, the Commando Foregrip is all players need. The PKM has excellent recoil in its base form but this attachment turns it into a loser. The final noteworthy attachment is the Tac Laser, which improves ADS speed but does appear to enemies.
While this PKM loadout might not be the best option in Season 6 of Warzone, it’s a throwback for veterans and a solid choice for new players.
