The OTs 9 is one of the most lethal SMGs to be added to Warzone, so find out which attachments you should be using to shred through Verdansk in the Season 6 update.

Warzone Season 6 is well underway and it brought a whole host of weapon balance changes. It’s safe to say the patch shook up the game’s meta, with the OTs 9 surging into the top five most popular guns in the game.

This full-auto submachine gun comes packed with a blisteringly fast fire rate, great recoil, and decent damage in close-quarter engagements. 

Whether you’re looking to put the OTs 9 through its paces or just wish to see where it fits amongst Warzone’s meta SMGs, you’ll want to ensure you have the best attachments. 



Best OTs 9 loadout for Warzone

The OTs 9 could be a favorite for many SMG fans.


  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor 
  • Barrel: 8.1” Task Force 
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Ammunition: VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

The GRU Suppressor and 8.1” Task Force barrel both help with increasing the OTs 9’s damage range, while also decreasing the gun’s vertical recoil. If that wasn’t enough, the added bullet velocity and suppression from the muzzle will help with securing longer-range kills and keep your shots hidden.

To enhance the OTs 9’s sprint to fire and ADS time, we’ve utilized the Serpent Wrap and KGB Skeletal Stock. These handy attachments eliminate any sluggishness, giving you the tools needed to aggressively rush your foes.  

While squad wipes may be off the cards, the VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag is arguably the best choice. Not only does this attachment give you the maximum amount of bullets, but it also ensures that your reload time is kept to a minimum. 


Best OTs 9 setup (Perks & equipment)

The OTs 9 loadout will be familiar to most Warzone players.
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Primary: QBZ
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Our OTs 9 class utilizes all the standard meta Warzone perks. EOD helps keep you safe from explosive blasts, while Amped gives increased speed when swapping to your primary weapon. 

While the OTs 9 may have a little more range than your average SMG, you’re still better off switching to an AR in mid to long-range firefights. As a result, the Overkill perk is a must for those that wish to be competitive across all ranges. 

Once you’ve secured your first loadout, we recommend switching to a class that has the Ghost perk. This will keep you hidden from any prying eyes and keep you safe from enemy UAV spam. 


Rounding things off at the bottom is the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor. Both these items are essential for those that enjoy aggressively pursuing enemy squads and flushing out pesky campers. 

How to unlock the OTs 9 in Warzone

The OTs 9 is the latest SMG to join Warzone.

To unlock the OTs 9, you’ll need to rapidly kill 2 or more players in 15 different games while using an SMG

Gunning for multi-kills can be rather tricky on larger maps, so we recommend playing on Nuketown or Hijacked where possible. Hardcore playlists can also help you farm easy kills. For Warzone, you’ll want to stick to Rebirth Island due to the more intimate nature of the mode’s firefights. 


Alternative to the OTs 9 loadout

Best Bullfrog loadout

The Bullfrog is a great close to medium range weapon in Warzone.

Another gun that has a similar playstyle to the OTs 9 is the Bullfrog. While this Cold War SMG may deal less damage than its newer counterpart, it does have a much larger magazine. 

In fact, our best Bullfrog loadout utilzises the 65 Rnd Mags. This enables you to down multiple foes without having to reload – an area the OTs 9 struggles with. The Bullfrog also has decent damage range, making it extremely versatile when played on both Rebirth Island and Verdansk. 

Not only that, it’s currently the most popular SMG in Waronze so it’s definitely worth making the most of its power before Raven Software step in with a nerf.


For those looking for a similar playstyle to the OTs 9, then the Bullfrog is arguably the next best choice.
