Best Krig class in Cold War: best Krig 6 loadout (plus Gunfighter)

Use these attachments to create the very best Cold War Krig class

The Krig 6 is one of the most accurate Assault Rifles in Call Of Duty: Cold War. Low recoil, great range, and high bullet velocity gives you the ability to challenge enemies at any range with this powerful rifle. This guide will walk you through how to setup the best Krig class and loadout in Cold War, with in-depth stat comparisons to show you what's going on behind the scenes with this weapon.

Best Krig class in Cold War - Krig 6 loadout

We're not going to bury the important stuff in tonnes of paragraphs here. Below are the attachments you need to make the best possible Krig 6 loadout in Cold War:

  • Optic: Sillix Holoscout
  • Muzzle: None
  • Barrel: 19.7'' Takedown
  • Body: None
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Magazine: None
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock

The backbone of our Krig 6 loadout is the 19.7'' Takedown barrel, which increases our effective damage range by a whopping, game-changing +150%. This allows us to deal greater damage at far longer ranges than the base Krig, and it only comes at the tiny cost of a -5% to sprint move speed.

The Field Agent Grip gives us a lovely increase to both horizontal and vertical recoil control, while the popular combo of the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock significantly increases almost every handling stat you can care to name. Which just leaves the optic, and you'll want one of those because the Krig's ironsights are pretty poor. The Sillix Holoscout is my favourite optic as it allows for very clear visuals in mid-range engagements, which is where you'll be using the Krig most.

Let's finish up this loadout walkthrough by comparing the stats of the base Krig to our best loadout:

Secondary weapon

For us, the ideal secondary weapon to equip opposite the Krig 6 is the MP5, as it offers a fast and reliable close-quarters gun to switch to if enemies get too near for the Krig to handle. Be sure to check out our guide for the best MP5 Cold War loadout for details on how exactly to kit it out.

If you don't want to use the Law Breaker wildcard to equip two primary weapons, then we'd suggest you pick the Hauer 77 shotgun for a very powerful close-range option. Equip it with the Task Force barrel and No Stock for extreme response times and consistently high damage.


Best Krig loadout with Gunfighter Wildcard

One final note regarding the use of the Gunfighter Wildcard with the Krig. For those who aren't aware, normally you can only attach five attachments to a gun, but with the Gunfighter Wildcard you can use all eight attachment slots. If you want to do this with the Krig 6, here are the remaining attachments we'd suggest:

  • Muzzle: Flashguard 5.56
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Magazine: 40 Rnd Speed Mag

The only significant attachment here is the magazine, because it's always nice to have more than 30 rounds in an Assault Rifle's magazine. The others provide fairly negligible benefits - the important thing is really just to avoid adding too many additional downsides. All in all this isn't a weapon I'd consider worth using the Gunfighter Wildcard with, but these are our recommended attachments if you wish to try it out.


And that wraps up our guide to the best Krig class loadout we've found so far in Call Of Duty: Cold War. But we've got plenty more Cold War guides for you to peruse!
