Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 1 has finally gone live with over forty new weapons following the integration of guns from COD Vanguard. Naturally, many players are now looking for the strongest and most broken weapons to use in Caldera as they rally to figure out the new meta.

The PPSH-41 is listed as one of several A-tier submachine guns (SMG) in Warzone Pacific, and despite being off-meta in the past, it's looking to be a dominant force at the start of the first season. Boasting serious damage with a quick TTK, the PPSH-41 is expected to be a destructive force capable of shredding enemies in the close to mid-range.

So, with that said, here is the best PPSH-41 gunsmith class setup at the start of Warzone Pacific Season 1.

The PPSH-41 might be comparable to certain assault rifles, thanks to its fast TTK and high damage; however, it is held back by high levels of recoil that reduce the stability and accuracy of shooting.

Therefore, the following loadout, inspired by JGOD, is geared toward improving the PPSH-41's accuracy and recoil control.

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Empress 140mm Rapid
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Empress Custom
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 7.52mm Gorenko 71 Rnd Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Perk 1: Steady
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The first attachment is the F8 Stabilizer to buff accuracy and damage range at the cost of reduced hip fire accuracy and increased sprint to fire speed. Alternatively, you could pick up the Mercury Silencer if you prefer to have less recoil.

Next, we've gone with the Slate Reflector, Carver Foregrip and Stippled Grip attachments to assist weapon stability. This is integral to ensure that the weapon's bloom and kickback don't throw off your shots.

We've picked up the Hollow Point ammo type to remove the damage penalty to extremities and the Empress Custom stock attachment to once again improve the gun's mobility and stability. We can further enhance this by equipping the Steady perk.

Lastly, we've gone with the Fully Loaded as our second perk for maximum starting ammunition.

And that's it! Do you disagree with this loadout? Great, we don't care. But, if you want something else to be disappointed about, then be sure to check out our Assault Rifle tier list.
