Best MAC-10 Loadout for Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded

MAC-10, Call of Duty Cold War’s strongest S.M.G, was added to Warzone in a content update. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on creating the optimal loadout for MAC-10.

MAC-10 is a similar weapon to the Uzi as it’s a fully automatic pistol like Sub-Machine Gun. It has an excellent fire rate and can dominate close-range gunfights with great efficiency. This SMG has exceptional mobility and maneuverability. It’s a lot easier to be aggressive, perform rapid flanks, and outmaneuver opponents because of its ease of usability.

At close range encounters, the MAC-10 shines. The MAC-10’s high fire rate and quick handling contribute to its effectiveness. Unsurprisingly, Caldera’s open spaces are not a great fit for this weapon. Instead, confined regions and structures are the optimal places for it to shine. Not to mention, MAC-10 is a godly weapon for Rebirth Island as it can help players rush corners without any worry.

The MAC-10 has some of the strongest movement stats in the game, so if players want to move around by slide canceling, it is the optimal gun for that use case. It was nerfed last year, decreasing its maximum damage output, but it is still popular amongst players. The nerf did reduce its popularity in the CDL lobbies. However, it still retained its popularity in the multiplayer lobbies as well as Warzone.

How to Unlock the MAC-10 in CoD Warzone

The MAC-10 is a part of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s (BOCW) weapon pool and can be unlocked by completing a simple challenge.

In Multiplayer (BOCW):

Using an S.M.G. and kill two or more players rapidly in 15 different matches.

In Warzone:

Using an S.M.G. and kill two or more players rapidly in 15 different matches.

The challenge is comparatively easy to complete. A helpful tip to unlock it faster is to play the Plunder game mode in Warzone and leave after getting two kills rapidly. Plunder is an easier way to unlock this weapon because it has active respawn enabled. Using S.M.G.s from Black Ops Cold War would be safer if other S.M.G.s did not count towards the challenge.

Best MAC-10 Loadout

Muzzle: Agency Suppressor

Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force

Stock: Raider Stock

Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip

Magazine: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum Mags

MAC-10 (Black Ops Cold War)

The Agency Suppressor improves the gun’s vertical recoil control, bullet velocity, and damage range, while the 5.9″ Task Force barrel improves range and bullet velocity. The weapon requires no optic due to close-range viability.

The field agent grip is the best underbarrel for the weapon. The grip helps in controlling the recoil, making it easier to beam players in long-range gunfights. As for the magazine, the STANAG 53 Round Drum Mags increase the initial ammo capacity. This loadout makes it an aggressive S.M.G. that complements rush and sniper playstyles. The MAC-10 will be viable in close-range.

Best Equipment & Perks for MAC-10 Loadout

  • Secondary: Cooper Carbine (Vanguard) or Kar98k (Modern Warfare)
  • Tactical: Stim (Modern Warfare), or Heartbeat Sensor (Modern Warfare)
  • Lethal: Throwing knives (Modern Warfare), or Claymore (Modern Warfare)
  • Perk – 1: Quick Fix, or E.O.D
  • Perk – 2: Overkill
  • Perk – 3: Amped, or Combat Scout

Quick Fix is the ideal perk for players constantly engaging in gunfights, enabling health regeneration when an enemy is killed. Opting for E.O.D. is also feasible to take less damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire.

Overkill as the second perk is a must; players can carry an extra primary weapon in the secondary slot. Pairing Cooper Carbine or Kar98k with this S.M.G. will make the loadout more potent, and the secondary will help in handling both long to mid-distance gunfights with ease. Our Cooper Carbine loadout focuses on a long-range Assault Rifle build.

To swap between the weapons faster, Amped is the go-to. Faster switching between weapons will help in getting an edge over other players. Combat scout briefly highlights the whole team when an enemy player is shot.

Stim (Modern Warfare)

As for tactical, stim gives an instant health regeneration upon use. The Heartbeat sensor can help track other players roaming nearby so that your next move. Throwing knives as lethal can be a backup in a close gunfight. It has a one-shot potential on players with a minimal level of armor. Moreover, after downing a player, immediately throwing a knife will eliminate the player regardless of the range it’s thrown from. Claymore can be opted out for throwing knives to watch flank when stationary.
