The LMG Bruen Mk9 came into play with Modern Warfare Season 3 and is therefore one of the oldest weapons in Warzone. The special thing about this weapon is that with the right attachments, the Bruen can be played almost like an assault rifle. An LMG paired with the advantages of an assault rifle? Yep, that's as strong as it sounds.

How To Get The Bruen Mk9?

Either you buy a bundle that contains a Bruen Mk9 weapon blueprint and unlock it that way, or complete the challenge. To unlock the Bruen, the challenge asks you to get three kills through or near smoke in 15 different matches. So you should always have smoke grenades with you and a thermal optic that allows you to see through smoke.

Note: The challenge works in Warzone and Modern Warfare multiplayer, but is much easier to complete in multiplayer.

As always, the monolithic suppressor is mandatory. It increases the range and hides you on the mini map when shooting. The barrel increases range, but also bullet velocity and recoil control. The Ranger foregrip also gives more recoil control and aiming stability, which is not to be underestimated, especially at slightly longer distances. And to round us out, the laser increases speed when aiming. If you want, you can also exchange the laser for an optic of your choice, we recommend the VLK.

Now, you're probably wondering, "Why should I take a smaller magazine on an LMG?" With assault rifles, SMGs etc. we always try to have the magazine as large as possible. That's true, of course, but 60 shots are more than enough in Warzone. Hence, the largest assault rifle magazine only has 60 rounds. The advantage of the smaller magazine on the Bruen is that you can aim more quickly, move the weapon faster, and reload much faster.

As previously mentioned, the Bruen's strength lies in the fact that it combines the advantages of an LMG with those of an assault rifle. So it can be used at medium and slightly longer distances. Therefore, if you also want to get into close combat, you should bring an SMG. We recommend the MP7, which still slaps hard in close combat. With the above attachments, you're going to best prepared for all outcomes. Here is our complete MP7 loadout.

The Best Equipment For The Bruen Mk9

TacticalStun Grenades

We recommend a good all-round setup here. Semtex is ideal for every situation. It works well against vehicles and infantry. While with stun grenades, we can push or evade our opponents, and even use them for "stun checking" a corner.

The Best Extras For The Bruen Mk9

Perk 1Cold-Blooded
Perk 2Overkill
Perk 3Combat Scout

For perks, we'll go with the current meta. We need Overkill to be able to carry both weapons, and Battle Scout and Cold Blood are always helpful. Getting enemies live-pinged is totally OP with Combat Scout, and Cold Blood is the counter that prevents that happening to us.
