Are you looking for the ultimate Minibak loadout for Warzone 2? Don’t worry as we guide you through 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 70 weapons in MW2, which are also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 73 weapons, 13 of them are SMGs. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a perfect playing ground for ARs and Sniper Rifles. However, SMGs excel in close-range engagements. From the SMG class, the Minibak has found a strong place in the meta as a newcomer to the MW series.

Based on the PP-19 Bizon, the Minibak is the counterpart of PP19 Bizon from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It is a Russian-made Submachine Gun suitable for the 7.62×25mm Makarov ammunition. This gas-operated cylinder-fed weapon has a vicious fire rate and damage output, making it easy to dominate close-range gunfights.

How to unlock the Minibak in Warzone 2.0

The Minibak is available after leveling up Vaznev 9K to level 14 in CoD: Warzone 2, 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 Minibak as players would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games.

To rank up Minibak, keep playing Warzone 2 when it is equipped. While the Minibak will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by using it to slay enemies, take down killstreaks, and complete contracts. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the Minibak if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2 match begins. 

Best Minibak Loadout

  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp
  • Laser: FTAC Grimline Laser
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Rear Grip: True-TAC Grip
  • Stock: Otrezat Stock

The FTAC Castle Comp provides more Horizontal and Vertical recoil control. On the other hand, the FTAC Grimline Laser increase hipfire recoil control and accuracy. The True-Tac rear grip and Oztreat stock increase the aim-down sight speed and sprint-to-fire speed of the Minibak.

Best Equipment & Perks for Minibak 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, for the bonus perk, players can use Spotter, 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 Minibak Buffs and Nerfs

The Minibak 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 Minibak in the Current Meta

Other alternatives to the Minibak 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.
