Okay, okay, before you roll your eyes, I know that they've been pushing the QBZ for seasons now. And you'd be right to have ignored it to this point. But after continual iterative buffs, the QBZ is now in a really good position to break into the long-range AR meta.
The QBZ has a fairly mediocre TTK within 31 meters, so this is definitely a 3x build we'll couple with an SMG. But where the QBZ excels, is in its high mobility and forgiving recoil pattern, and it does good stomach and limb damage, so it's not one of those weapons that will require chest shots to be strong.
Basically: the QBZ is a solid option for engagements in the 30-70m range, and it's particularly easy to use, so we can recommend it for players of any skill level.

With this QBZ setup, we're going highly conventional, but there's nothing quirky going on with the weapon, so that's fine. We'll stay off the radar with the suppressor, while the grip and the barrel should help us control recoil over distance. The 60 round mag is a no-brainer for squads, and the optic is likewise an obvious choice given the role we're going to press this AR into.

The Best Secondary Weapon For The QBZ-83
The ol' Smack-10. What a joyful weapon to use. Yep, all these months later and it's still frying. In all seriousness, the MAC-10 outperforms almost all SMGs at the 18-27 m range, and it has one of the most impressive fire rates in the game. It's a pretty outstanding weapon, and it couples perfect with the QBZ. Here is our MAC-10 Setup.
The Best Equipment For The QBZ-83
With the MAC being so dominant when things get up close and personal, we'll forgo the traditional Heartbeat Sensor in favor of the more aggressive option – stuns. Semtex is a great all round option and always works.
The Best Perks For The QBZ-83
And where you would normally take E.O.D. in the first slot, we've opted for Cold-Blooded to counter the meta perk – Combat Recon. We'll be taking Combat Recon ourselves while it's so strong. Overkill in the second slot is a must-have since we won't be able to carry both guns otherwise.
