Are you curious about the best HRM-9 loadout for Warzone 2.0? Then rest assured, we will show you the best loadout with the optimal setup for dominating Urzikstan.

Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 has been a massive success worldwide. The direct sequel to Warzone Caldera, Warzone 2.0 features guns, equipment, and game mechanics from MW2. There are 103 weapons in MW2 and MW3 combined, which are also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 103 weapons, 19 of them are SMGs. Warzone 2.0’s Resurgence game mode and Ranked Play favor SMGs for fast-paced gameplay. From the SMG class, the newly added HRM-9 has caught the attention of Warzone 2.0 players.

A light yet stable 9mm submachine gun for close-quarters combat and putting down your enemies quickly. Sporting a high fire rate and excellent handling and mobility, the HMR-9 is the perfect fit for aggressive run-and-gun playstyles.

How to Unlock the HRM-9

The HRM-9 is available when players fully complete Sector A21 of the battle pass in CoD: Warzone 2.0 Season 1, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon is unlocked. To unlock some of the better attachments for the gun, players must level up their rank with the HRM-9 as players would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games.

To rank up HRM-9, keep playing Warzone 2.0 when it is equipped. While the HRM-9 will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by slaying enemies, taking down killstreaks, and completing contracts. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the HRM-9 if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2.0 match begins.
