Best MAC-10 loadout and class setup in Warzone

This Warzone gun MACs a punch.

The MAC-10 has seen numerous nerfs since it was added to Warzone in Cold War Season 1, but it’s still a great SMG. This is a low damage, high rate of fire buzzsaw that burns through bullets and targets in a snap. Take advantage of its peerless mobility, and the MAC-10 can be a top-tier SMG to this day. If you want to learn how, you’ve come to the right place. This is our guide to the best MAC-10 loadout in Warzone.

Best MAC-10 loadout in Warzone

While some SMGs like the Milano now perform well as sniper supports in Warzone, the MAC-10 is not one of them. We recommended you stick to the close-range, high mobility build below:

A MAC-10 loadout in Call of Duty: Warzone
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: 53 Round Magazine

The Agency Suppressor is on the muzzle, both to keep you off radar and boost your damage range. Adding a Task Force Barrel pushes the range further and increases your strafe speed. Lean all the way into that speed with a Tiger Team Spotlight and Raider Stock. These two attachments will make you extremely fast, even while aiming down sights and firing. As usual, you should also use the largest magazine available, which in this case is the 53 Round magazine.

The MAC-10’s rate of fire is so high that those 53 rounds still won’t last long, so you can use a 53 Round Speed Mag to reload faster. It comes with some handling penalties though, so try it out and see if it feels like a worthwhile exchange to you. It’s also possible to push the mobility even further by dropping the Agency Suppressor for a Striker Grip. You lose your stealth and some range, but you’re going to be incredibly fast with this build.

Secondary weapon

High-mobility SMGs like this go well with a long-range Assault Rifle. The Krig 6 and FARA 83 are both top choices in the current meta. If those two don’t suit your taste, check out our guide to the best Assault Rifles in Warzone.


Best MAC-10 loadout with Perks and Equipment

Here's all the info you need on maximising your Cold War loadouts, with the best Perks and Equipment. Here's our favourites:

  • Perk 1: EOD
  • Perk 2: Ghost/Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Our standard perks include EOD, which helps you survive blasts from explosives. For perk number two, Overkill and Ghost are your two best picks. Overkill is nice to quickly get both of your guns, especially if you don't find a long-range option to compliment your MAC-10 on the ground. As always though, snag Ghost afterward to avoid UAV detection. Amped lets you swap quickly between your long-range rifle and your MAC-10. It's always nice to have when fights get dicey or you run out of bullets in a pinch.

We like Semtex as a general-purpose lethal, but if you’re getting run down by trucks too often try Thermite Grenades or Proximity Mines. In the tactical slot, it never hurts to have a Heartbeat Sensor. If your team already has one though, go with some classic Stun Grenades.


How to unlock the MAC-10

The MAC-10 was part of the long-gone Cold War Season 1 Battle Pass. If you missed out on unlocking it there, you can still get it now through an in-game challenge. You’ll need to kill two or more players rapidly with SMGs in 15 different matches. You can knock this out in Cold War Multiplayer or in Warzone. If you don’t own Cold War, give Plunder or Rebirth Island a try. You’ll have more opportunities to fight and earn those double kills than you will in standard Verdansk Battle Royale.


That's all for our MAC-10 guide! We have all kinds of sweet guides ready to rumble in Warzone though, so check out our best Warzone guns guide, as well as advice on the War Tracks you can play in your vehicles in Warzone.
