Out of all the weapons that could have broken the early Warzone Pacific meta on Caldera, probably not many people expected that the Top Break pistol would be the one doing it.
This dual-wielding secondary weapon is triggering some PTSD reactions from those players remembering the oppressiveness of the Akimbo Snakeshot Magnum meta from January 2021, and rightfully so.
With the best Akimbo Top Break loadout, which you will find below, the early adopters are mercilessly gunning down enemies on Caldera, thanks to the weapon's overpowered stats, like the insanely high damage and unbelievable speed for a dual-wielding loadout.
If you want to have some fun and annoy other players before the inevitable nerf hammer, be sure to try this Akimbo Top Break loadout as soon as possible.
Best Akimbo Top Break loadout for Caldera
If you want to find out why is the Akimbo Top Break one of the best meta loadouts on Caldera in Warzone Pacific Season 1, use these attachments:
- Muzzle: M1929 Silencer
Boosting the weapon's accuracy while providing sound suppression to keep your shots hidden from the mini-map.
- Barrel: Wilkie W-4 Stub
The Wilkie W-4 Stub is crucial for this build as it substantially improves damage range, bullet penetration, and velocity. It will cost you some hip-fire accuracy, but that will be barely noticeable.
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
It will make the weapon a bit more accurate while providing a decent magnification.
- Trigger Action: Hair Trigger
Increased fire rate and hip-fire accuracy alongside sprint-to-fire speed, allowing us to have slightly quicker reaction times when on the move (which will be often on Caldera)
- Magazine: .30 Russian Short
These large calibre rounds will make your shots extremely deadly with increased bullet velocity, range, penetration and damage.
You will lose some control and accuracy, as well as ADS speed, but we think that's a worthy trade.
- Ammo: M15 Shot Shell
This ammo type increases your damage radius, which means that it improves your chance to hit the target in situations where you would slightly miss otherwise.
- Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
It will add a bit of extra recoil control to your Akimbo build, while improving hip-fire accuracy, to balance out what we lose with the barrel.
- Perk: Akimbo
This is, of course, the essence of this build, as we will be dual-wielding these guns.
- Perk 2: Quick
It increases our sprint speed, as you will often run around your targets pouring bullets into them while avoiding their fire.
And that's it, this is the best Akimbo Top Break loadout that is already dubbed "broken" and is currently dominating the early days of Warzone Pacific Season 1 on Caldera.
Check out the loadout for yourself, and see if Akimbo Top Break is really as broken as they say or if people are just overreacting.
