The Best Warzone Volk Loadout | The Best Strafe Speed In Warzone

The Volk is an incredibly mobile AR, and it's gaining popularity in Warzone as a kind of SMG. Here's the attachment setup for the Volk, and a full loadout to use it with.

The Volk might not be familiar to those of you who play Warzone but not Vanguard. In Vanguard's multiplayer it's an outstanding weapon (so fantastic it was recently GA'd in the CDL), but in the Battle Royale it's struggled to gain popularity. It's got fantastic handling for an AR, but a lot of people are turned off by its inability to perform at range. However, if you think of the Volk as an SMG, and use it in that role (as so many streamers have been recently) then you'll be more than happy with this weapon, especially on Rebirth.

In this guide we'll go through the Volk SMG build and then suggest some good perks and equipment to use with the weapon.

As we're trying to build an SMG, we're going for mobility-boosting attachments, anything to improve ADS, sprint out, and movement speed. The magazine might slow us down a bit, but we need the extra rounds, and we've chosen the Subsonic ammunition to stay off the map while still enjoying the benefits of the Recoil Booster. But Gung-ho is the star of the show, this perk allows us to sprint while shooting, which effectively makes our sprint out time zero.

We know what you're thinking: "that trash from the gulag, what have these jokers been smoking?" But the version of the MG that's in the gulag has none of the essential attachments you need.

Use the setup above, and you'll realize how controllable the recoil on this weapon can be. Also, 250 round in the chamber allows you to lay down suppression and cover your teammates better than any other weapon in the game.

The Best Equipment For The Volk

LethalThrowing Knives


The Volk is basically an SMG, and so we can allow ourselves to push buildings and play aggressively. We'll take Stuns and Throwing Knives therefore, as these by far some of the best options in close quarters combat. The stuns to check buildings, and the throwing knives to finish off downs.

The Best Perks For The Volk

Perk 1E.O.D.
Perk 2Overkill

Perk 3


Obviously we need Overkill to bring both of these primary weapons, and because one of them is an LMG, Amped makes sense for faster weapon swapping. Besides Amped and Overkill, we went with E.O.D. as a good all-round passive.

That was your complete overview of the Volk in Warzone. Hopefully you found it helpful. But if you find the Volk isn't quite doing it for you, maybe give the current meta AR a go?
