The Lapa was added to BOCW and Warzone in late 2021, but it seems like no one ever used it. Probably because the MP40 and Owen Gun just owned the meta. But with the recent nerfs, and maybe because people are just fed up with Vanguard guns, the Lapa has climbed the ranks within the SMG meta and has become a very solid choice. It's time we show this gun some love.

Here's the best attachment setup for the LAPA, and a rundown of the loadout you'll want to use with this weapon.

Slightly different from what we've come to expect from BOCW SMGs, this build doesn't solely focus on movement speed and mobility. This build offers great flexibility and can be used as an SMG, paired with a long-range AR or as a sniper support. It has great range and relatively low recoil, while coming with all the normal SMG benefits: great sprint to fire time and movement speed. This gun shines especially at mid-range fights, which makes it a perfect gun to run with sniper rifles, especially after the Kar and Swiss nerfs.

The agency suppressor will keep us off radar, and the STANAG is bringing the maximum mag capacity, while the suppressor and barrel should ensure we get the most impressive range. The optic is the one attachment that you could switch out. We hated the irons, but maybe you don't, if you do drop the optic then take a serpent wrap rear grip or an underbarrel.

The Best Secondary Weapon For A LAPA

The LAPA is a great short to mid-range gun, so we're taking a long-range AR with it. For this task we've chosen the FARA 83, because the FARA is great at the 40-60 m distances, with a great balance between damage and ease-of-use.

For more aggressive players, the above build might feel just a touch too slow. If that's you, then consider exchanging the 60 round mags for 45s. You can read a full FARA 83 loadout guide here.

The Best Equipment For A LAPA

LethalThrowing Knives
TacticalStim Shots

When it comes to equipment, you should take advantage of having an SMG and being good in close-range. Stim Shots can help you play more offensive and defensive and just offers great flexibility in every situation. Thirst, the downed players with Throwing Knives. Simple.

The Best Perks For A LAPA

Perk 1Cold-Blooded
Perk 2Overkill

Perk 3


Where you would normally take E.O.D. in the first slot, we've opted for Cold-Blooded to counter Combat Scout. We'll be taking Combat Scout ourselves while it's so strong. And then Overkill is obviously necessary because this loadout uses two primary weapons.

That was your complete rundown on the current LAPA meta. You'll have so much fun with this weapon, but if you're not feeling it, perhaps try the Welgun.
