Best AK-47 loadout for Warzone Season 3

Warzone Season 3 is here to shake up the meta with the new Verdansk map, new weapons, and a slew of changes across almost all weapon classes.

The Assault Rifle class has seen the biggest changes, with six weapons in total being nerfed or buffed.

And while the AK-47 on paper has only one change, that one buff might singlehandedly push this weapon to the Tier-S among assault rifles and even make it one of the best weapons in the early days of the Season 3 meta.

The AK-47 was notorious for its strong recoil, which has made this weapon very hard to control and use reliably in Warzone.

With the Season 3 update, players skilled at recoil control will now be able to do wonders with this weapon, if they use the right attachments, of course.

If you want to use the full potential of the  AK-47 in Warzone Season 3, we recommend you to use these attachments.

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
    Absolutely the best suppressor for the AK-47. It helps with vertical recoil and boosts bullet velocity and effective damage range. It will help a lot when you want to outplay your enemies great in mid-range fights.
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
    While recoil is now fixed, the weapon still has a very strong recoil by its nature, and the Spetsnaz Grip with its Horizontal and Vertical recoil reductions comes as an easy choice.
  • Ammunition: VDV 60 Rnd Fast Mag
    Bigger capacity in combination with faster reloads will help you stay in prolonged fights, which will often happen when using the AK-47.
  • Barrel: 18.2'' Takedown
    This might be an odd choice, but we think that it pairs excellently with the improved AK-47. Strafe speed will allow you to "dance" around your enemy while staying on the target, which opens up space for some interesting playstyles.
  • Optic: Microflex LED
    It will help you to stay on target in mid-range fights, which can be tricky otherwise given the strong recoil of the weapon.

And that's it! We really hope that you will have fun playing this AK-47 build, as the AK-47 is an iconic weapon that unfortunately hasn't been viable for two seasons in Warzone, due to recoil issues.

Now when that's being fixed, we hope that you are as excited as we are to try the AK-47.
