Are you looking for the best ISO 9mm loadout for Warzone 2.0? Then rest assured, as we’ll show you the perfect loadout with the optimal setup for dominating the terrains of Al Mazrah.

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 76 weapons in MW2, which are also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 76 weapons, 13 of them are SMGs. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a perfect playing ground for Sniper Rifles and Assault Rifles. However, for close-range engagements, SMGs reign supreme. The new ISO 9mm is an excellent choice in the SMG class for its versatility and efficiency in close-range gunfights.

The ISO 9mm excels at both close-quarters and mid-distance brawls. Its high fire rate and top-notch recoil control allow for versatile, effective operations in most combat scenarios. Moreover, the ISO has excellent mobility stats that will help players stay on their feet easily.

How to unlock the ISO 9mm in Warzone 2.0

The ISO 9mm is available when players the tier F4 of the current battle pass in CoD: Warzone 2.0 Season 6, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon will be unlocked as well. To unlock some of the better attachments for the gun, players will have to level up their rank with the ISO 9mm as players would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games.

To rank up ISO 9mm, keep playing Warzone 2.0 when it is equipped. While the ISO 9mm 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. They will gain even more weapon XP for the ISO 9mm if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2.0 match begins.

Best Equipment & Perks for ISO 9mm Loadout


  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Semtex

Stim is a widely used tactical capable of providing instant heals, which can be life-saving in clutch situations. On the other hand, semtex is an excellent lethal that can serve as a breaching impact and flush out other players from cover.

Perk Package – Weapon Specialist

  • Base Perk -1: Overkill
  • Base Perk -2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor

The weapon specialist package is excellent for calm and calculated players. The base perks are Overkill and Strong Arm. Strong Arm grants players a stronger projectile-throwing power with a preview of the trajectory, while Overkill allows them to carry two primary weapons.

Furthermore, players can use Spotter for the bonus perk, which spots enemy equipment, field upgrades, and killstreaks through walls. Lastly, the ultimate perk is Survivor, which acts as a self-revive but in the form of a perk.

All the latest ISO 9mm Buffs and Nerfs

The ISO 9mm did not receive any buffs or nerfs, as it has been recently added to the game. The current state of the weapon is balanced, according to many players within the CoD community. If the situation arises, the gun might get more tweaks in future updates to make it more balanced.

All the SMGs from Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 are different. They all excel in their fields depending on the build. Furthermore, the exact placement of the weapon in the current meta can be determined in the coming weeks as more players get their hands on the gun.

Other Alternatives to the ISO 9mm in the Current Meta

Other alternatives to the ISO 9mm are Kastov-74u (AR), M4 (AR), and TAQ 56 (AR). TAQ 56 is one of the most powerful guns in Warzone 2’s current meta. As time progresses, more weapons will gain a stronger position in the meta.
