Nikita AVT is a versatile Assault Rifle with a high fire rate and damage range. Here’s an in-depth guide to creating the best Nikita AVT loadout in Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded update.
In the current Warzone meta, Assault rifles are strong and more dominant in a gunfight as they always dominate mid-range and long-range gunfights. S.M.G.s, on the other hand, can be trusted at close to medium-range encounters. Like most other weapons in its class, the Nikita AVT is a versatile A.R. with a high fire rate and a reasonable damage range.
The Nikita AVT is a long barrel gun with a back-loading magazine, and it is straightforward to use while moving. The weapon is potent in long-range gunfights, especially on the new Caldera map. Nikita AVT is the cleanest-looking gun in the current weapon pool, according to many players in the CoD community. Clearing corners in Rebirth Island and dominating long-range gunfights in the terrains of Caldera will be a breeze using the proper loadout.
Due to its effectiveness in most combat scenarios, the weapon has found itself in a good position in the meta. With the Rebirth Island and Caldera rework, the A.R. will surely help players dominate close-range gunfights with its excellent damage output potential.

After unlocking and leveling it up quickly, players can choose from various attachments.
Best Nikita AVT Loadout
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Kovalevskaya 546mm Sniper
- Optic: M38/Slate 2.5x Custom
- Stock: Gawain H4 Folding
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 7.62x54MMR 45 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
- Perk 1: Acrobatic
- Perk 2: Quick
Recoil booster and Kovalevskaya 546mm Sniper combine to reduce the recoil and sway of the Nikita AVT with increased damage range. M38/Slate 2.5x Custom is an optic sight that will allow the Nikita AVT to be effective in long-range gunfights while providing 2.5x magnification. Fabric Grip provides better-aiming stability and movement stats.
M1941 Hand Stop is a must for low recoil and hip-fire builds. It basically helps in controlling the recoil with ease. Lengthened ammo type provides increased bullet velocity. Quick perk increases mobility, making the player light on their feet when wielding the weapon. Moreover, Acrobatic increases fire speed while sprinting with better hip-fire accuracy.
As for the magazine, the 7.62x54MMR 45 Round Mags will do wonders with this gun increasing the initial ammo capacity. With the fire rate, the weapon runs out of ammo faster while using the standard magazine that comes with the weapon. This loadout makes it an aggressive A.R. that complements rush and sniper playstyles. Nikita AVT will be viable in mid-range and long-range gunfights.
Best Equipment & Perks for Nikita AVT Loadout
- Secondary: MP40 (Vanguard) or Kar98k (Modern Warfare)
- Tactical: Stim (Modern Warfare), or Heartbeat Sensor (Modern Warfare)
- Lethal: Throwing knives (Modern Warfare), or Proximity Mine (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 MP40 or Kar98k with this A.R. will make the loadout more potent, and the secondary will help in handling both long to mid-distance gunfights with ease. Our MP40 loadout focuses on a close-range S.M.G. 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.
As for tactical, stim gives an instant health regeneration upon use. The Heartbeat sensor can help track other players roaming nearby, and it will help players plan the next gunfight effectively. Throwing knives as lethal can be a lifesaver 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. Proximity mine can be opted out for throwing knives to watch flank when stationary.
