Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s light machine gun selection at launch is slim, but they’re all pretty solid options.

Light Machine Gun Bravo, also known as the RPD, has the highest movement speed of any LMG in the game at launch, so it’s a great candidate for a class built to run and gun. But you can also build it to be strong at range.

Using the Gunsmith and certain attachments, the RPD can be customized to be useful in a variety of different situations. It all depends on your playstyle, the game mode, the map, and more.

Here are some of the best loadouts for the RPD in Black Ops Cold War.
