COD Modern Warfare 2: BEST Vaznev-9K Loadout & Class

After investing 120+ hours in MW2, here is my recommended loadout for Vaznev-9K.

The Vaznev-9K is one of the best guns in COD Modern Warfare 2 in the submachines category, only if you equip the best loadout. As you jump into the competitive multiplayer of COD Modern Warfare 2, you want to make sure you are equipped with the right arsenal to take down as many enemies as possible. To provide you with the best chances to win, I have put together what I think is the best Vaznev-9K loadout in COD Modern Warfare 2.

  • Vaznev-9K is a submachine gun that is really useful in close combat.
  • It provides more mobility to the player, thus giving opportunities to go in and out of fast-paced battles.

Here’s a quick summary of the complete Vaznev-9K Loadout:

- Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
- Laser: STOVL DL Laser Box
- Stock: Markeev R7
- Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip

X13 auto- Base Perk 1: Double Time
- Base Perk 2: Scavenger
- Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
- Ultimate Perk: Ghost
- Tactical: Stun
- Lethal: Semtex
Dead Silence and Portable Radar

Like all other weapons in the game, the Vaznev-9K also has 9 attachment slots. But only a maximum of 5 slots can be active at one time.

For the attachments for Vaznev-9k, I have picked the following ones as the best Modern Warfare 2 Vaznev-9k Loadout:

  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Laser: STOVL DL Laser Box
  • Stock: Markeev R7
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
  • Increased Movement Speed
  • Hip Fire Accuracy
  • Bullet Velocity
  • Horizontal Recoil Control
  • Vertical Recoil Control
  • Not Fastent TTK 
  • Limited Range

Although this setup does seem like a relatively simple one, rest assured it is the most effective one. All the focus in this build is on increasing mobility and improving range, which ends up making the gun more versatile.

This build helps me get out swiftly of risky situations and provides me an upper hand in close combat and even mid-range fights. 

Best Vaznev-9K Loadout Perks

A Call Of Duty game is not complete without perks, and Modern Warfare 2 features them in all their glory. Perks can prove to make a huge impact on your performance, and it is important to choose the right one before heading down to the battlefield.

Hence, here are the best perks I suggest you use with the best loadout of the Vaznev-9K:

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Scavenger
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost

The first base perk is Double Time, which doubles your Tactical Sprint duration and increases crouch movement speed. 

  • The second base perk is Scavenger, which lets you pick up ammo from players you have killed.
  • Since the Vaznev-9K is an SMG, you would need this perk if you want to survive longer and not be left dependent on your knife. 
  • The bonus perk of Fast Hands boosts your reload speeds. If you are a COD veteran, you already realize the importance of this perk. 
  • Ghost is going to keep you hidden from UAVs, Portable Radar scans, and Heartbeat Sensors. 

Best Vaznev-9K Class Equipment

When building your Vaznev-9K SMG class setup, it is also important to pair it with equipment that works well with the weapon’s intended playstyle.

As such, here are my selections for the best equipment alongside your Vaznev-9K:

  • Secondary: X13 auto
  • Tactical: Stun
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence
  • Field Upgrade 2: Portable Radar

Secondary: X13 auto

The X13 is a go-to choice for the secondary weapon in any case, but in this Vaznev-9K best loadout, I strongly suggest this pistol due to several reasons. Firstly, this gun has a rapid rate of fire, giving you back that SMG feel, which makes your arsenal more familiar.

Secondly, with its incredible rate of fire, it also comes with lethal damage output, making it one of the best secondary weapons for this loadout. Alternatively, it can also be useful to put out that final shot if your Vaznev-9K’s magazine runs out.

Tactical: Stun

The Stun, pictured above, the grenade is arguably the most useful tactical players can equip when looking to run and gun. All veteran COD players must be familiar with its importance and how it can turn the tide of a battle if used effectively. Although the area of effect is a little less the effect induced in your opponent almost confirms a kill every time.

As such, this makes the Stun a great entry tool before running into a room or building. You can then proceed to mow them down with your Vaznev-9K.

Lethal: Semtex

The Semtex, as visible in the image, is a useful grenade with a fuse that sticks to surfaces. The wide area of effect is much needed for this best Vaznev-9K loadout, and with its sticking ability, it is especially useful in choke points.

Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

The Dead Silence Field Upgrade, shown in the image above, silences your footsteps for a short duration, which is reset every time players make a kill. This perk, when used with the high mobility of Vaznev-9K, proves to be a lethal combination.

You can sneak up on enemies without them realizing it and pull off incredible flanks. Hence, this facilitates the fast-paced gameplay players should expect with their Vaznev-9k.

Field Upgrade 2: Portable Radar

Players can unlock a second Field Upgrade slot upon reaching level 45.

For this, I recommend the Portable Radar, which can be seen in the image above. It is just like the radar drone in many OG Call Of Duty titles, marking your enemy’s position on your mini-map as the pulse passes. Therefore, it can serve you well in creating an optimal situation for yourself and getting the upper hand.

My Opinion On Vaznev-9K

I find Vaznev a well-balanced firearm in the SMG category. The weapon is quite versatile which allows me to use it in all types of interactions. You can try out my recommended loadout to further enhance the capabilities of Vanznev. Also, I recommend doing some slight alterations to the loadout according to your personal preference.

That brings the end of the best loadout for Vaznev-9K in COD Modern Warfare 2. If you don’t have access to SMGs yet, read the guide about unlocking all weapons in COD mw2.

With so many options for attachments and guns to choose from, Call Of Duty gives the player base the absolute freedom to play the game according to their own play style. Be sure to experiment with all those unique builds, and let me know in the comments if you find this guide helpful.
