In terms of popularity, the Krig-6 isn't at the top of the food chain in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Both the XM4 and AK-47 are more popular with players and that's just in the assault rifle category. However, for fans that have taken the time to get accustomed to the Krig, they know how powerful it can be.
Fairly decent stats all-around make the Krig an attractive choice for any situation or map in Black Ops Cold War. Although, as with most other weapons, there are certain attachments that turn the Krig into a much better gun and perhaps one of the best ARs.
Best Krig-6 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

For this loadout, we've chosen to go with only five attachments instead of the eight you would get with the Gunfighter Wildcard. This choice was made simply because the Krig-6 doesn't need an onslaught of attachments to perform well.
Each of the five attachments picked in the Gunsmith helps out the AR in some way. Although the Krig is balanced across the board, a little extra benefit in each area never hurts.
- Optic: Millstop Reflex
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 19.3" Paratrooper
- Underbarrel: Marshal Foregrip
- Magazine: 40 Round Speed Mag
For the Krig, you most likely want an optic seeing as the iron sights aren't the best. The Millstop Reflex is the consensus best sight but still, this is mostly personal preference. Moving on, Suppressors are back in style with Black Ops Cold War.
The Agency Suppressor is a great choice as it keeps you off the radar but also slightly improves vertical recoil control, which is the direction the Krig tends to kick.
Your recoil is also reduced with the Marshal Foregrip. While your hipfire accuracy suffers, firing from the hip with an AR isn't a great idea in the first place. Finally, the 19.3" Paratrooper offers some extra damage range and the 40 Round Speed Mag simply helps with magazine capacity.
