If battle royales aren’t your thing, or you prefer the non-stop action of BOCW’s multiplayer, you’re going to need a proper loadout. Things are a bit different than Warzone in Cold War’s MP mode. In this guide, we’re going to take a look at some of the best Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer loadouts. There are a few different options to choose from, so hopefully, you can find something to match your playstyle.

Loadouts are mostly personal preference, so feel free to tweak any of these to your liking. Some players like to see what the Call of Duty professionals are running, so here’s a look at some good examples. Also, if you’re grinding for those diamond camos, you’re going to need to be well-versed in a lot of weapons.

AK-47 Setup for Cold War Multiplayer

The AK-47 is one of the most powerful ARs in Black Ops Cold War. We’ll utilize the Gunfighter wildcard here to take advantage of all eight (or seven) weapon attachments. The optics choice is up to you, as some people tend to skip it because they prefer the iron sights. It comes with a lot of kick, though, so we’ll need to adjust for that. The KGB Eliminator is an excellent option to help with Vertical Recoil Control while also concealing your muzzle flash. 

Next, we go with the 1.5″ Ultralight, an underrated attachment that increases strafe speed by 5%. You’ll be able to outmaneuver and juke out other opponents when you get into those ADS battles. Another slept on weapon attachment is the Infiltrator Grip, which improves your all-around movement speed. It comes in handy with the AK-47, allowing you to control the map more quickly and lay down that suppression fire.

For the handle, go with the GRU Elastic Wrap for built-in toughness and ADS time. Next, the KGB Skeletal Stock helps make up for the Spring to Fire Time, and Aim Walking Movement Speed lost elsewhere. Last but not least, you’ll need some extra ammo, and that’s where the VDV 50 Round Fast Mag comes in handy.

Krig 6 Setup for Cold War Multiplayer

Here’s a good Krig 6 setup for Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer:

  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: SOCOM Eliminator
  • Barrel: 19.7″ Ranger
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Equipment: Stimshot, C4, Gas Mine
  • Perks: Flak Jacket, Scavenger, Spycraft
  • Wildcards: Gunfighter
Krig 6 Setup for Cold War Multiplayer

For the best Krig 6 setup for Cold War multiplayer, we’re using the Gunfighter wildcard to unlock an additional three attachments. Overall, the Krig 6 already has some of the best bullet velocity and accuracy of all the assault rifles. The most important part of this loadout is the 19.7″ Ranger barrel. It increases bullet velocity by 100%, effectively doubling the speed at which your bullets travel. Other notable attachments are the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock, which help ADS time and mobility.

Groza Class Setup for Cold War Multiplayer

Here’s a good Groza setup for Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer:

  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: KGB Eliminator
  • Barrel: 16.7″ VDV Reinforced
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: VDV 40 Round Fast Mag
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: KGB Pad
  • Equipment: Stimshot, C4, Gas Mine
  • Perks: Flak Jacket, Scavenger, Spycraft
  • Wildcards: Gunfighter
Groza Class Setup

Using the Gunfighter Wildcard, we’ll be utilizing all eight attachment slots. Optics is up to personal preference, but consider using the Microflex LED as it’s the slimmest option with the least on-screen clutter. Most importantly, the 16.7″ VDV Reinforced barrel doubles the effective damage range and improves bullet velocity, making a world of difference. Other attachments like the Spetsnaz Grip help eliminate recoil and make this weapon capable of beaming down enemies at any range. 

Mac 10 Setup for Cold War Multiplayer

Here’s a good Mac 10 setup for Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.3″ Ranger
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: Salvo 53 Round Fast Mag
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Equipment: Stimshot, C4, Field Mic
  • Perks: Flak Jacket, Scavenger, Spycraft
  • Wildcards: Gunfighter
Mac 10 Setup for Cold War Multiplayer

The purpose of this loadout is to use your mobility and stealthiness to pick and choose your battles. Undoubtedly the best close-range weapon in the game, the Mac 10 has the highest time to kill and fire rate out of all the SMGs. While the Mac 10 has close to no recoil, you’ll still want to counter it a little bit. With that in mind, along with our goal of stealthiness, the Agency Suppressor is the perfect muzzle choice. Additionally, the Field Agent Grip will get that recoil as close to 0 as possible.

One of the most critical attachments in this Mac 10 setup is the 5.3″ Ranger barrel. It doubles the bullet velocity, meaning bullets travel faster through the air. Couple that with the already insanely high RPM, and you have a recipe for destruction. Where this setup also shines is in the mobility category. Using the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock will vastly improve your overall ADS, one of the essential stats on an SMG. Lastly, consider running the Salvo 53 Round Fast Mag because this SMG eats bullets like no other.

MP5 Setup for Cold War Multiplayer

Here’s a solid mobility based MP5 setup for Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 9.5″ Ranger
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Magazine: Salvo 40 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Equipment: Stimshot, C4, Field Mic
  • Perks: Flak Jacket, Scavenger, Spycraft
  • Wildcards: Gunfighter
MP5 Setup for Cold War Multiplayer

Aside from the Mac 10, the MP5 is one of the best SMGs in the game. It’s a highly versatile weapon that you can use to quickly get around the map and win every fight you choose to take. For this setup, we focus on mobility, speed, and accuracy. As always, we use the gunfighter perk to beef up this weapon to its max potential. 

First up, the Agency Suppressor conceals the flash and provides vertical recoil control. Next up, the 9.5″ Ranger is a beast and arguably one of the best attachments on all SMGs, including the MP5. It doubles the bullet velocity, meaning your bullets travel faster and reach the enemy quicker. Finally, the Steady Aim Laser, Bruiser Grip, Raider Stock, and Airborne Elastic Wrap add some all-around mobility and speed so you can rack up more kills in a shorter amount of time.

Dual Magnum Setup for Cold War Multiplayer

Here is perhaps the best possible secondary weapon you can run in Multiplayer:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.2″ Task Force
  • Body: Swat 5mW Laser Sight
  • Magazine: Salvo 12 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Stock: Dual Wield

Dubbed the one-shot Magnums, these can drop anybody in a single click at a close enough distance. The most critical attachment here is the Dual Wield stock, which unlocks at level 35. For some stealthiness, add the Agency Suppressor, which also provides some recoil control. You’re going to want a decent amount of ammo, so the Salvo 12 Round Fast Mag is a proper choice.

Next, the Swat 5mW Laser Sight helps that hip-fire accuracy. Finally, and perhaps the best attachment, the 7.2″ Task Force increases Bullet Velocity by 120%, adds more damage, and increases damage range.
