The Best Warzone KSP 45 Loadout | The Burst-fire SMG

Are you looking for a slightly more unusual weapon? Don't worry, the KSP 45 is exactly that. It's a burst SMG. We won't pretend it's the meta, but we do have the best KSP 45 setup and loadout for Warzone.

Warzone offers a bunch of cool weapons, but with over 180 guns now, there are also of course a few more "unusual" ones. The KSP45 is one of them. The Black Ops Cold War SMG is the only SMG with a burst-fire mechanism to date.

Up until now, burst-fire weapons have been found exclusively in the DMR or assault rifle classes and with a few exceptions (Aug & M16) they've always been sub-par. Thanks to the 3-shot burst mode, the KSP 45 is of course not comparable to a MAC-10 or MP7 in close combat, but the higher damage and simple recoil make it the ideal SMG for slightly longer distances.

Since the KSP 45 simply doesn't have the rate of fire for close quarters combat due to the burst mode, we're focusing on optimizing range and recoil. The barrel and muzzle boost range and bullet velocity, while we use the foregrip to minimize recoil. A large magazine is always a must anyway and the Microflex LED is sufficient for most distances. If you can handle the iron sight, you can of course also take a grip instead of the optic.

The KSP 45 is strongest at short to medium ranges. So we recommend pairing it with a longer-range weapon. Here you can either take a sniper like the HDR or a big LMG. We chose the LMG.

The PKM has always been one of the strongest options when it comes to long-range LMGs with absurdly large magazines. Just stay out of melee combat and rain lead on your opponents. If you are pushed, that's when the KSP 45 comes into play. Here's our in-depth PKM setup guide.

The Best Equipment for the KSP 45

Lethal Semtex
Tactical Stun Grenades

Semtex is a great all around choice, and it can be used against vehicles and infantry. Stun grenades are also a good general pick, either to surprise your opponents, or to use the hit marker to check if there are enemies in the next room, or to distract them for a moment if you want to get away.

The Best Perks for the KSP 45

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

The absolute standard! Especially with a fat LMG, Combat Scout is awesome because not only hit enemies are marked, but also suppressed enemies. So with 200 rounds in the magazine, you can just shoot every building in front of you and see if anyone inside is marked. Cold-blooded counters this perk, so we don't get tagged ourselves, and we need Overkill to be able to carry both weapons.

That's about it for the KSP 45. Definitely not a meta weapon, but if you're looking for a change, you might find it here. For those looking for more of a regular SMG, the Welgun is still a very good choice.
