Without attachments, the Vaznev-9k is already damn strong, because it is very mobile and fast. Most Pros use only 3-4 attachments, because almost all the additional attachments reduce the target speed.

All attachments make the weapons even faster and more mobile, except the muzzle, which reduces the recoil. As you can see, we built the gun for fast run-and-gun gameplay, as it's the best weapon. If you want, the Vaznev-9k is an extremely powerful second weapon.
