Best QBZ loadout and class setups in Call of Duty: Warzone

The best attachments and class setups for the QBZ-83 Assault Rifle

Looking for the best QBZ loadout in Warzone? While it hasn't quite caught up in popularity to the Krig 6, the QBZ has similarly low recoil and better best-case time-to-kill. Where it suffers is its lower stomach and limb damage, which make it a bit less consistent. You need to be precise to make it strong, but that is easy on a gun this accurate. If you’re unfamiliar and want to try the QBZ out, this guide will give you all the tools you need.

Best QBZ loadout in Warzone

Like the Krig, the QBZ really excels at range. Its damage output won’t match sniper supports like the Cold War AK-47 up close, but with recoil like this, you can stay locked on faraway targets. Here’s our build of choice:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 60 Round Drum

As usual, you want both an Agency Suppressor and Task Force Barrel for maximum damage range and bullet velocity. These attachments also grant you some added recoil control. Mix that with low base recoil and a Field Agent Grip, and you have a low-recoil laserbeam ready to rock. For long-range, you’ll want an optic with some zoom. The Axial Arms 3x is the most common choice for Cold War guns, but if you prefer a Royal and Kross 4x or other alternatives it’s really a matter of preference. Last but not least, add on a STANAG 60 Round Drum to give yourself plenty of ammo.

With recoil this low, you do have a few options to play around with, if you can handle a little less recoil assistance. Some players will swap the Task Force Barrel for a Ranger Barrel to gain mobility and ADS speed at the cost of some damage range and recoil control. You could also trade the Field Agent Grip for a Raider Stock or Airborne Elastic Wrap for better ADS movement speed or ADS speed, respectively.

Secondary weapon

Long-range Assault Rifles always go well with an SMG. You can achieve unmatched mobility with a Cold War option like the MAC-10. Both MP5s are top-tier choices right now too. To see what other SMGs are in the meta, check our guide to the best SMGs in Warzone right now.


That’s the QBZ for you! Now you’re prepared with all the knowledge you need to build it out and drop into a match.
