The Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 arrived early in October with a slew of new content last week, including revamped POIs, a brand-new battle pass, new Operators, as well as five new weapons.

At launch, developers Raven Software released the 410 Ironhide shotgun, Grav assault rifle, and Battle Axe melee weapons. However, Warzone players can now enjoy the LAPA submachine gun (SMG) and Hammer & Sickle in The Haunting of Verdansk Halloween event.

The LAPA is by no means broken or overpowered but is instead a well-balanced, versatile SMG to use in Warzone. Additionally, the LAPA boasts incredible damage with low recoil, and its relatively slow fire rate only holds it back. 

However, if you're otherwise looking to scare the boots off your enemies, then this loadout will get the job done. Here's the best LAPA gunsmith loadout for Warzone Season 6.

Popular YouTube content creator and Warzone icon JGOD contends that the LAPA has some issues, namely its iron sights, which are "kinda bad." However, JGOD did mention that recoil would not be remarkably affected.

JGOD's LAPA class setup for Warzone Season 6

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.9" Rifled
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock
  • Magazine: STANAG 45 Rnd Fast Mag

The Agency Suppressor will conceal you from enemies and boost the LAPA's bullet velocity, effective damage range and vertical recoil control.

Next, we've gone with the 7.9" Rifled Barrel to buff the LAPA's damage and fire rate. If you prefer to use the default barrel instead, then you could pick up an optic, like the Microflex LED, for an improvement over the "terrible" iron sights. Equipping this attachment will ensure you maximize the LAPA's headshot and neck shot damage.

The Tiger Team Spotlight and the SAS Combat Stock will bolster mobility and allow you to position for more aggressive engagements.

Depending on your playstyle, you could either go for the STANAG 45 Rnd Fast Mag or the STANAG 50 Rnd for ammunition. The latter will bolster the LAPA's ammo capacity and reload quickness, albeit at the expense of ADS time. However, the former will trade additional ammo capacity for ADS time and reload quickness.

This LAPA SMG attachment build is best used in close-quarters combat but can also be effective in the medium-range. You can check out JGOD's comprehensive meta-analysis of the LAPA in the video embedded below.
