We’re slowly working our way through all the weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, bringing you the best setups for each weapon. Today, we’ll be talking about the perfect hip-fire weapon: the Milano 821.

Are you just getting into Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and looking for the best weapons in the game? Well, don’t you worry! We are testing all the weapons out and giving you the best setup for each of them. If you don’t know what to do with submachine guns, here are the best assault rifles currently available:

The Milano 821 unlocks at level 13, and has a rather low rate of fire and slow projectile acceleration compared to the MP5 and AK-74u. Nevertheless, what makes it a very popular submachine gun is its good handling and incredibly high accuracy when firing from the hip. Since the previously mentioned MPs perform much better in their categories, we use the Milano as a fast, agile hip-fire monster.

Milano 821 Setup

As always, we again present the five best weapon attachments for the Milano 821. Thus, all players, even those who do not use the Revolverheld wildcard, have the opportunity to use this setup!

With the following attachments, you can further boost the agility and speed of the weapon, as well as the precision when firing from the hip:

  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
  • Barrel: 10.6” special commando
  • Body: SWAT 5mw laser marker
  • Under-barrel: Foregrip
  • Stock: Marathon stock

With the barrel, we improve a lot of the Milano’s disadvantages. It increases damage by 5%, range by 50%, and projectile acceleration by 75%. We make up for the resulting recoil with the foregrip and infantry compensator. Horizontal recoil is reduced by 15% with the foregrip and vertical recoil is reduced by 12% with the infantry compensator. The SWAT laser increases the already very good accuracy from the hip by another 35%, and in return, minimally reduces the speed of aiming. But you don’t need it anyway! It’s a hip-fire setup! With the marathon stock, we increase the change from sprinting to firing by 30%, which lets us react faster in the middle of the action.

This setup puts you in the best position in the middle of the action. You’re very mobile and don’t have to rely on aiming thanks to the extremely accurate hip fire. Overall, you should always be faster than your opponents in close combat. Those who are used to fighting with a sight at longer distances will have to get used to the Milano.
