After months of waiting the Soap Operator Bundle is finally available in Warzone. As is the CX-9, a new SMG. A lot of fans were hyped for the CX-9, and we can confirm it's pretty strong. Here's the best attachment setup and Warzone loadout.

I don't even know when the leaks for Soap and the Serac started ... It feels like people have been talking about the popular Modern Warfare operator for ages and now, without much notice, his bundle has suddenly appeared in the store. Either way, we're happy to finally get our hands on the CX-9 and share with you the best loadout for it in Warzone.

Oh, and before we break into the loadout, here is how to unlock the CX-9.


Warzone CX-9 Setup

The CX-9 has an extremely high rate of fire - it's only beaten by the Fennec in fact - and it's also relatively easy to control, which makes it very forgiving. With these attachments, you'll get the best out of the CX-9:

  • Barrel: CX-38S
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 50-Round-Drums
  • Rear Grip: CX-9 Tac Grip

The barrel is the best thing about the whole setup, it increases the bullet velocity and range, all while silencing the weapon Yes, that's right, an integrated silencer, so you save a slot that you can use with another attachment. In order to compensate for the loss of mobility and to increase the ADS, we've opted for the tactical laser and the CX-9 Tac Grip. The commando foregrip is another pretty clear choice, as it reduces recoil and improves aiming stability. The largest magazine is effectively mandatory in Warzone, so again, this was an obvious choice. But believe me, at this rate of fire the magazine will still empty faster than you would hope for.

What Is The Best Warzone CX-9 Loadout?

  • Primary Weapon: CX-9
  • Secondary Weapon: A long-range AR. Right now we'd suggest the Krig or the Fara, and if your gun skills are strong, the C58.
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Like most SMGs in Warzone, the CX-9 is not for long distances, which is why an assault rifle is definitely needed here.

The perks and gadgets are the absolute standards. E.O.D. for less explosive damage, Overkill to be able to carry both weapons and Amped to be able to switch between weapons more quickly. Semtex is good for any situation, and the heartbeat sensor is a must-pick for the majority of builds.

That's the best Warzone CX-9 setup and loadout. Get out there, and get hunting!
