The Best Warzone 2.0 RPK Loadout | A Strong LMG

We have the best Warzone 2.0 RPK setup and loadout for you. If you're looking for one of the strongest LMGs in Warzone 2, you've come to the right place.

Warzone 2.0 comes with a brand new huge map called Al Mazrah and as you would expect, long range weapons are once again the meta. Be it a sniper with sniper support, a long range assault rifle or even a big LMG, weapons with high range and as little recoil as possible are king again.

The RPK is particularly suitable here, as it is still one of the most mobile LMGs, but still dishes out extremely high damage. With the right attachments, we can therefore turn the RPK into a heavy, somewhat slower assault rifle, which destroys everything and has a great TTK.

Note: This is the best RPK setup and loadout for Warzone 2.0, if you want to play the gun in MW2 multiplayer, we have an extra RPK multiplayer loadout.

Warzone 2.0: RPK Setup

Unlock Requirements
MuzzleZLR Talon 5TAQ-M to Level 22
OpticVLK 4.0Kastov 762 to Level 4

TAC 597 Barrel

RPK to Level 3

Heavy Support Stock

RPK to Level 12
Rear GripDemo-X2 GripRPK to Level 18

With this setup, we try to make the RPK as easy to control as possible. That's why we put a grip and stock on it exclusively for more recoil control. The barrel and silencer further enhance this effect while increasing range and bullet velocity. Overall, we get a very easy to control LMG with excellent range and accuracy, but not as slow as other weapons in this category.

When it comes to optics, we just go for the good old VLK with 4x magnification, but of course you can always put a different sight on it if you don't like the VLK.

WZ 2.0 RPK Loadout: Secondary, Perks & Equipment

Secondary: Vaznev-9k

With a primary weapon like the RPK, which is designed for medium to long distances and is simply far too cumbersome for close combat, we naturally need a nimble secondary weapon. We opt for the Vaznev-9k here, which is an absolute monster in multiplayer as well. Should you get pushed or decide to go into melee, this is a super weapon to save your butt.

Perks (Base, Bonus & Ultimate)

Since we can no longer choose our own perks in Warzone 2.0, we have to choose one of the pre-made perk packages.

Perk PackageWeapon Specialist

Base Perk

Overkill, Strong Arm

Bonus PerkSpotter
Ultimate Perk


Weapon Specialist is unfortunately the only package that includes Overkill, and without Overkill we can't take a secondary weapon. Strong Arm lets us throw grenades farther and even shows us the trajectory. Scout lets us see and disarm enemy equipment even through walls, while Survivalist marks enemies that down us and ensures that we can be revived faster.

Equipment (Lethal, Tactical)

This is the equipment of our choice:

TacticalStun Grenade

Stun grenades, of course, are again extremely powerful and do well in almost any loadout. Semtex, on the other hand, is a good choice against infantry and vehicles, and there is simply nothing more satisfying than sticking a grenade to an enemy's head....

That was our RPK setup and loadout for Warzone 2.0, and if you're wondering what the best weapons in Warzone 2.0 are right now, we've got something for you.
