Best Volk Loadout for Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded

The Volk is one of the fastest firing Assault Rifles from Vanguard’s weapon pool. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on creating the best loadout for Volk updated for Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded update.

The Volk is undoubtedly one of the most versatile Assault Rifles in the Warzone’s current meta, and it’s a terrific pick for anyone looking for a reliable option, primarily due to its low recoil. It’s devastating at nearly any range and fires quickly, drawing parallels to the Automaton.

The Volk has the best time to kill in the Assault Rifle category while also being really easy to use even with a high fire rate. Low recoil and fire rate have made this Assault Rifle an absolute powerhouse capable of easily dominating mid-range to long-range engagements in the new Warzone season 5 update.

The weapon was nerfed and buffed simultaneously with the Season 3 Classified Arms update. Volk’s bloom was nerfed significantly, making the bullet spread wider. Automaton and Cooper Carbine are only worthy competitors of Volk. With the new build that reduces the weapon’s recoil and increases bullet velocity, the gun will be ideal for the meta of season three.

How to unlock the Volk in CoD Warzone

The Volk is part of Call of Duty: Vanguard’s weapon pool. It is an Assault Rifle (A.R.), an unlockable weapon available after reaching level 55. It is part of the post-launch weapon line available to all players from day one. The gun is available after reaching the max level which will require a significant amount of grinding.

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 Volk Loadout

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Krausnick 428mm 05V
  • Optic: M38/Slate 2.5x Custom
  • Stock: Reisdorf 22V Adjustable
  • Underbarrel: M3 Ready Grip
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 40 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The Krausnick 428mm 05V increases Volk’s bullet velocity, overall range, and accuracy. Most players are not going to shoot without aiming down the sights, so the decrease in hip fire accuracy is not a big problem. By equipping the Slate 2.5x Custom, players can acquire more precision and recoil control at the expense of aim down sight speed.

Another feature that players might want to improve with the Volk is the number of bullets they can shoot before reloading. That’s where the 7.62 Gorenko 40 Round Mags enter the picture. However, players’ aim-down sights, movement, and reload speed will decrease in exchange for the extra bullets. They can also increase the velocity of every bullet by inserting Lengthened into the ammunition slot, and because there are no disadvantages, it’s a perfect combination.

Fully Loaded is a perfect fit here as it provides the most ammunition, especially when combined with the 7.62 Gorenko 40 Round Mags. The second perk must be the Tight Grip, which improves accuracy and recoil control while firing continuously.

After equipping the Recoil Booster, players will gain better recoil control and increased damage output. The Reisdorf 22V Adjustable is helpful if players strafe while aiming, and it also provides a significant boost to recoil control during the first few rounds. 

Like every other Assault Rifle, the rear grip for Volk should be the Polymer Grip. It provides flinch resistance, recoil stability, and accuracy during a sustained fire with no additional debuffs. Paired with the Reisdorf 22V Adjustable, this Assualt Rifle will become more manageable in the recoil department. Players can also use the M3 Ready Grip for extra recoil control buffs, and there are no noticeable downsides because they are not using this weapon for its hip-fire accuracy.

Best Equipment and Perks for Volk Loadout

  • Secondary: Owen Gun (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 Owen Gun or Kar98k with this A.R. will make the loadout more potent, and the secondary will help in handling both mid to close-range gunfights with ease. Our Owen Gun loadout focuses on a close-range S.M.G. build.

Owen Gun (Vanguard)

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 help plan the next gunfight strategy effectively. 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 used instead of throwing knives to watch flank when stationary.
