Best Milano 821 loadout and class setup in Warzone

What to attach to your Milano.

The Milano 821 hasn’t been given a fair shake in Warzone. It’s sad to see if we’re honest - a gun that’s received nothing but ridicule from the beginning. I happen to think it feels amazing to use though. I don’t know what it is, and you won’t be winning 1v1s against a MAC-10 with perfect aim, but the Milano is worth more than that. It’s a versatile killing machine, capable of taking out enemies close up and at range, with some really nice mobility stats to go with it. Here’s the best Milano 821 loadouts in Warzone.

How to unlock the Milano 821 in Warzone

You just need to level up a little bit to unlock the Milano in Warzone - rank 13, to be precise.

Best Milano 821 loadout in Warzone

There’s a couple loadouts that spring to mind with the Milano 821. We can go for an all-rounder, capable but not ludicrous in all departments, or we can kit this thing out for maximum mobility and speed. Let’s go through them.

Best balanced Milano 821 loadout in Warzone

This is my favourite Milano loadout in Warzone because it’s just so versatile. You can plonk bullets into enemies up close, sure, but this gun can also be kitted out to extend fairly far thanks to the gun’s slow fire rate. Sure, you won’t shred, but the Milano lets you hit your shots far better than many other SMGs meaning in practice it’s often better. Here’s the all-rounder attachments you should be using for this Ian Botham SMG:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor (Level 46)
  • Barrel: 10.5” Ranger (Level 30)
  • Stock: Raider Stock (Level 54)
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip (Level 41)
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd Drum (Level 34)
This milano 821 balanced loadout has an agency suppressor, 10.5 inch ranger barrel, raider stock, field agent grip, and STANAG 55 round drum attached.

Right then. Here’s your Milano loadout, with everything you need for a super-reliable SMG. Firstly, as always, the Agency Suppressor gets you off the enemy radar whilst helping your range and bullet velocity, which is also improved by the 10.5” Ranger barrel. Bullet velocity is often an issue to sort out with SMGs, and at the ranges you’ll be using this weapon, it’ll feel instantaneous with this barrel and muzzle.

We want to keep your accuracy as good as possible too, so chuck on the Field Agent Grip. It reduces recoil the most and coupled with the slow fire rate, the Milano will stay on target with minimal fuss. Of course, you still need some level of mobility, so I’ve put the Raider Stock on to help the Milano with your movement speed while you’re aiming down sights, as well as speeding up sprint-to-fire time.

Finally, we have the STANAG 55 Rnd Drum, which is a bloody delight as it feels like it lasts forever. Extended mags in Warzone are super important, and they remain so with the Milano, so get this on your gun when you can.

Best mobility Milano loadout in Warzone

With this loadout, I’ve made the Milano 821 the most mobile it can be without completely wrecking it. There’s a couple tweaks, so let’s go over the attachments and explain the reasoning:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor (Level 46)
  • Laser: Mounted Flashlight (Level 14)
  • Stock: Raider Stock (Level 54)
  • Underbarrel: SFOD Speedgrip (Level 50)
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd Drum (Level 8)
This milano 821 loadout has an agency suppressor, mounted flashlight, raider stock, SFOD speedgrip, and 45 Round Drum attached

A bit of this build remains the same - the Agency Suppressor and Raider Stock are just that good. However, for mobility’s sake, the barrel is gone, replaced with a Mounted Flashlight, which your enemies will be able to see but hopefully do nothing about. It boosts your movement speed slightly. Next, we have the SFOD Speedgrip which doesn’t reduce recoil quite as much as the Field Agent, but compensates for this by making you sprint faster (which is how you’ll be moving around most of the time anyway). Lastly, the magazine has been shrunk to a 45 Rnd Drum, which is still a hefty number of bullets but won’t harm your aim-down-sights time at all.

Secondary weapon

With either of these Milano builds you’ll want to use something with a bit more range to it. I personally enjoy the PKM, M13, or Grau 5.56, particularly with the super-mobility loadout.

If you’re running the balanced Milano, it works great as a sniper support weapon, so break out your LW3 - Tundra or SP-R 208.

Best Milano loadout with Perks and Equipment

Your Milano runs best alongside the ideal Perks and Equipment, so here’s what you should be adding to the loadout:

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

Double Time isn’t the most popular perk to put in the first slot, but with the Milano, especially a mobility-kitted Milano, it’s a delight. You can run at blistering pace with your tactical sprint for longer before having to slide-cancel, and you even move faster when crouch-walking on your way to a flank.

Use Overkill if you don’t have a weapon already equipped as a decent ranged secondary and go for one of the options in the previous section, but if you’re kitted out already then there’s not much better than Ghost. People run around with Heartbeat Sensors all the time and it’s great to be protected from them.

The best perk in the third slot is Amped - it lets you switch weapons far faster which can be a godsend in the final circle when you’ve emptied a magazine and need to swap to finish a foe.

With the Milano 821, I like to run Semtex. It’s a great approach and push tool which deals hefty damage, giving your opponent something to deal with as you sprint up to them. The Stun Grenade is also perfect for refusing to let enemies escape alive.
