The best WSP Swarm loadout in Warzone season 2

An early favorite for close-range domination.

The WSP Swarm in Modern Warfare 3 may have been overlooked at first, but it’s an excellent choice for a secondary, close-quarters weapon to use in Urzikstan. We don’t suggest using it in long-range fights, but it’s great when getting close to an enemy in BR.

This is the best loadout for the WSP Swarm in Warzone battle royale.

The WSP Swarm has been slept on a bit in MW3 multiplayer, but that’s why Warzone is so great: it may use the same weapons as CoD MP, but the game is different enough that some weapons will shine in BR in ways that they can’t in Domination or Search and Destroy. This was easily one of the best SMGs in Warzone in season two, but has since been nerfed. It’s still worth using, though.

Best WSP Swarm build in Warzone

  • Muzzle: Purifier Muzzle Brake S
  • Optic: Mk. 3 Reflector
  • Stock: FSS Fortress Heavy Stock
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Pivot Vertical Grip
  • Rear Grip: Marauder Grip

This attachment loadout is close to the one I like to use in MW3 multiplayer, but a bit different. At its base value, the WSP Swarm kicks like a mule, but these attachments will provide a significant buff to your Recoil Control, which I think is a necessity.

Basically, all of the attachments I’ve chosen here will help out with Gun Kick Control, Recoil Control, Firing Aim Stability, and Aiming Idle Sway, meaning it’ll even be decent in close to mid-range engagements.

If you don’t feel the need for an optic, consider swapping out the Mk. 3 Reflector for a magazine like the 50 Round Mag, but be prepared to lose a good amount of Movement Speed and Aim Down Sight Speed.

Best WSP Swarm perks and equipment in Warzone

  • Perk Package
    • Perk 1: Battle Hardened
    • Perk 2: E.O.D.
    • Perk 3: Tempered
    • Perk 4: High Alert
  • Secondary Weapon: BAS-B or Pulemyot 762
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade or Semtex
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade or Stun Grenade

This is a really fun perk package I like to use when using an SMG in Warzone, because I find that you don’t need to worry as much about mobility when using it. Therefore, you can use perks like Battle Hardened and E.O.D. to protect yourself from lethals and tacticals.

Tempered is a must-have in Warzone, as it reduces your need to use three plates to armor up to only two plates. And High Alert is great for always keeping eyes on the back of your head, so it’s a decent option no matter what you use in Warzone.

Tip: A fast TTK makes the WSP an excellent choice.

The WSP Swarm is a monster up close, with one of the best TTK’s within its short range. It shreds armor but needs a strong long-range gun to pair with.

Make sure to pair the WSP Swarm up with a good long-range option in your second weapon slot like the Pulemyot 762. Then choose which kind of lethal throwable you like best and bring a stun or smoke to protect yourself from advancing foes.
