The PKM may not have ever been the best LMG in Warzone but with its huge magazine, high caliber rounds, and similarly high fire rate, the PKM has always had its fans.
One of those is pretty esteemed in the Call of Duty community and that is Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff. The Twitch star has consistently found himself running through lobbies with a variety of LMGs, mainly the Bruen MK2, but he too has always had a soft spot for PKM and with the release of Warzone Season 3 Reloaded the time had come to take a look at Soviet-era machine gun once again.
In a recent YouTube video, NICKMERCS designed a PKM loadout emphasising accuracy and he feels its so good it could "change the game".

"Beaming ain't even the word, laser ain't even the word," NICKMERCS told his viewers. "I was just putting teams down with this thing."
The resulting gameplay proves his point, in some games with Timthetatman, Cloakzy and CourageJD you watch as he runs through the lobby PKM in hand.
If you want to try the loadout for yourself, here it is.
Best PKM loadout for Warzone Season 3 Reloaded
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: 26.9" Extended Barrel
- Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
- Stock: FORGE TAC Stalker
- Grip: Snatch Grip
NICKMERCS has opted for the ever-reliable Monolithic Suppressor which helps suppress the gun's montrous audio footprint with increasing damage range, at a small cost of ADS speed and steadiness.
The 26.9" Extended Barrel also extends range and increases muzzle velocity at a small cost of mobility.
The VLK 3.0x Optic is a reliable optic that obviously increases zoom level at a small ADS speed.
An important attachment here is the FORGE TAC Stalker which drastically improves aiming stability when walking and is great for pushing opponenets around the map as you lay down a hail of bullets.
The Snatch Grip works similiarlly improved recoil control and ADS speed at a small cost of movement speed.
