PP-19 Bizon is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s most versatile S.M.G. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on creating the optimal loadout for the Bizon in Warzone Season 4 Mercenaries of Fortune.
PP-19 Bizon, mostly known as Bizon, is a cylinder-fed S.M.G. Bizon has been a regular part of the CoD weapon roster since MW1. This Russian-made Makarov gun is famous for its low recoil and close-range firepower.
The gun is the counterpart of Bullfrog from CoD: BOCW (2020). However, they are quite similar in structure. The Bizon is far superior in terms of close quarters stats. The gun also boasts one of the best movement stats in the game and has a vicious fire rate and damage output, making it easy to dominate close-range gunfights.
Since its introduction, the weapon has remained somewhat untouched. The Bizon has received no significant buffs or nerfs. However, with the integration of the Cold War’s weapon pool in Warzone, all Modern Warfare S.M.G.s were secretly nerfed somehow. The damage was decreased slightly from their initial stage. However, this did not affect the gun’s popularity. Since its release, the weapon has been a fan favorite regardless of the game modes.
How to Unlock the PP-19 Bizon in CoD Warzone
The Bizon is part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s weapon pool. It is a Sub-Machine Gun (S.M.G.), an unlockable weapon available after reaching level 42. It is part of the post-launch weapon line available to all players from day one.
The best tip for leveling up in Call of Duty: Warzone is to spend more time in-game. The experience (XP) system in Warzone is pretty straightforward. The more time you spend in-game, the more XP you will gain. Additionally, completing daily and weekly challenges will provide extra XP, which will be helpful to level it up faster. After unlocking and leveling it up quickly, players can choose from various attachments.
Best PP-19 Bizon Loadout
Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
Barrel: 8.7″ Steel
Laser: Tac Laser
Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
Stock: No Stock
Anyone familiar with the weapon pool in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare should know how powerful the monolithic suppressor is, regardless of the weapon. The extra power makes any weapon more viable in mid to long-range gunfights. The main disadvantage of choosing a monolithic suppressor is a slower walking speed when aiming and a slower A.D.S. (aim down sight) speed.
Similarly, the 8.7″ Steel barrel is the way to go for the Bizon. It will improve damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control significantly. The sole drawback is the slower aim down sight and movement speed, which will be rectified later with other attachments.
This weapon requires no additional magazine attachments as it comes with a cylinder magazine by default. Tac Laser and Stipple Grip significantly improve the aim down sight speed of the weapon. Lastly, No Stock provides a massive buff to the mobility stats of the gun.
Best Equipment & Perks for PP-19 Bizon Loadout
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 an excellent perk for players who are continuously engaged in gunfights, as it enables rapid health recovery when an enemy is killed. Choosing E.O.D. to take less damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire is also feasible.
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 Sub-Machine Gun will make the loadout more potent, and the secondary will help in handling both long to mid-distance gunfights with ease.
Amped is the best way to switch between guns quickly. Faster switching between weapons will give players an advantage over other players. The perk combat scout briefly highlights the entire team when an opposing player is shot.
As for tactical, stim gives an instant health regeneration upon use. The Heartbeat Sensor can assist in tracking down other players in the area and help plan the next fighting tactic. 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. Furthermore, instantly throwing a knife after downing a player will eliminate the player regardless of the range. Also, claymore can be used instead of throwing knives to watch flank when stationary.
All the Latest PP-19 Bizon Buff & Nerfs
The Bizon was shadow nerfed with other Sub-Machine Guns from Modern Warfare (2019). With the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, it was evident that the S.M.G.s from Modern Warfare required changes to increase the pick rate of BOCW Sub-Machine Guns.
Though there is no mention of nerfs to the Bizon, the damage output was tweaked similar to all the Sub-Machine Guns from M.W. with the integration of BOCW’s weapon pool. The pick rate of Bizon is in a stable position; players using it since the beginning of M.W. season three choose the S.M.G. in Caldera and Rebirth Island due to its excellent stats for close-range gunfights.
Other Alternatives to the PP-19 Bizon in the Current Meta
Other alternatives to the Bizon are MP40 (S.M.G.), Armaguerra 43 (S.M.G.), and PPSH-41 (S.M.G.). MP40 is one of the most robust guns in Warzone Season 4 Mercenaries of Fortune’s current meta. Armaguerra 43 has the fastest fire rate in the S.M.G. category. Check out our MP40 and Armaguerra 43 loadout guide for more information.
