The Best Warzone UGR Loadout | An SMG Version Of The AS-VAL

The UGR is the second weapon we've seen added to Black Ops Cold War since Vanguard began. This one is an SMG that reminds of the AS-VAL. Here's the best loadout for the UGR, including the meta attachment setup.

The UGR is one of the few weapons we received for BOCW after Vanguard was released. The year 2 weapons, although few and far between, are usually very powerful in Call of Duty. The UGR does indeed have some compelling stats and a remarkable TTK, but it has one fatal flaw: the magazine size. Hence, it's the AS-VAl of SMGs.

The UGR is therefore a weapon ideally suited to solos or duos, but not for trios or quads. So if you play a lot of solos, this could be your new favorite SMG. Here's the best attachment setup for the UGR, including a full loadout to use it with.

How To Unlock The UGR

The UGR has to be unlocked by completing one of three challenges. You only have to complete one of the three challenges, and the challenges can be unlocked in Warzone, Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer, and Black Ops Cold War Zombies. Here are the challenges:

  • Warzone: Use an SMG to kill an enemy revealed by your Spy Plane, UAV, or Field Mic in 15 different matches.
  • Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer: Use an SMG to kill an enemy revealed by your Spy Plane, UAV, or Field Mic in 15 different matches.*
  • Black Ops Cold War Zombies: Kill 1,000 zombies using an Epic rarity or better SMG.

*In the case of the multiplayer challenge, you need to complete the entire match for your progress to save. If you quit out of the game early, then you will lose all progress towards the challenge, unlike doing the challenge in Warzone or Zombies.

Explosive Flechettes

We need the extra ammo of the Explosive Flechettes, but with a maximum of 36 rounds, the magazine is still extremely small. So we try to use the SMG to push our enemies. With the above attachments, the UGR is relatively snappy, but also has a little range and good recoil control. Just try it out, the gun doesn't get any better than this.

There are a lot of good options we could have chosen for our secondary weapon. But since we have an SMG as our main weapon, it has to be a long-range AR. And what better choice than the current champ of assault rifles, the Grau 5.56. After some Modern Warfare weapons finally got buffed again, the Grau is back at the top of the current meta and just a really nice weapon. Here is our best Grau 5.56 loadout.

The Best Equipment For The UGR

TacticalSnapshot Grenades

Snapshot grenades are perfect if you can get Restock on your second loadout. For this first loadout, you'll need Overkill to get the FARA with your UGR, but after that focus on getting Restock. With this precious Perk 2, you'll guarantee that you can enter a fight with Snapshots and Semtex, and with an SMG that is immensely valuable. This basically means you have wall hacks going into every fight. Semtex on the other hand is always nice to have and works like a charm.

The Best Perks For The UGR

Perk 3


As we mentioned, we need Overkill on the first loadout, but on your second, take Restock. Alongside these perks, you want to focus on close-range combat with the UGR, so we advise E.O.D. to help survive Claymores and Trip Mines on the push, and Amped, so you can swap between your weapons more quickly.

What do we expect from Warzone 2?
