For the Muzzle, we will be tuning the Aim Down Sight Speed all the way to -0.80 oz. That will help us counter the Aim Down Sight Speed debuff of the muzzle, making us slightly faster. For the bottom bar, we will go with max Gun kick control, which is +0.35 in. That will allow us to have better control, and the gun won’t bounce as much when we start firing.

The extra bullets help you destroy enemies in a 1v1 and also easily take on another enemy without having to reload. 

The magazine will make you slightly slower, but all our other attachments are built around increasing your speed, so you won’t notice the debuffs in-game.

We have the FSS OLE-V Laser for your fourth attachment to help with some of the Speed debuffs of the Mag. The laser is the opposite of the Mag and cancels out most of the Magazine’s debuff. The OLE-V Laser gives you Aim Down Sight Speed, increases your Sprint to Fire speed, and also provides you with extra Aiming stability.

Rear Grip

Ture-Tac Grip Vaznev 9K

The Ture-Tac Grip for the Rear Grip will be used as our last but not least maneuver. One of the most well-liked grips in the game is the Ture-Tac Grip, and with good reason. It helps you win more battles and makes your rifle faster. It allows you to have quicker ADS Speed and negates all of the ADS debuffs of the other attachments.

Additionally, it increases your sprint-to-fire speed so you can rush adversaries and fire right away soon as you get them in your sights. Recoil control is the only disadvantage of the grip. However, it is readily overcome by the other attachments.

Tuning For The Rear Grip

The Grip may be tuned to perfection to reach its maximum potential. To have the shortest delay while starting combat while sprinting, you tweak the Sprint to Fire Speed to -0.45. When you run into an enemy while both of you are sprinting, that significantly helps because you will be in the lead. For fighting, you can adjust your ADS Speed to -1.00 oz for maximum speed, making you even faster.

Secondary For Loadout 2

The Signal 50, which is presently available in COD Warzone 2.0, is the Best Sniper. One of the rifles you can acquire early on in the game, Signal 50, can become overpowered with the appropriate loadout and class combination. It is the fastest sniper in terms of TTK because of its quick fire rate and low recoil. Due to the Signal 50’s semi-automatic nature, it is unaffected by the removal of the one-shot kill mechanism. The signal 50 will be a great secondary to help you dominate the long-range battles as well. 

For Signal 50, we’ll be using the 29″ TV Kilo- 50 Barrel. You would want to use the barrel every time you use the Signal 50 because it is one of the best barrels for the device. It will increase bullet velocity and range, giving the gun the much-needed boost, and it will increase your lethality at a distance.

In order to compensate for the slower handling speed, we will use the SA Finesse Grip and the FSS OLE-V laser. To boost your Signal 50’s Aim Down Speed, you must employ both of these accessories. Additionally, you get a faster Sprint To Fire speed with these attachments, which makes the Signal 50 an ideal weapon for all game modes.

The Nilsound 90 Silencer, which has additional advantages and doesn’t expose your location when you fire, will work best with the Signal 50. Similar to the Barrel, it offers you bullet velocity and damage range. You can win long-range battles by combining the two, which makes for a powerful combo.

Last but not least, we shall run the SO Inline Stock. The INline stock basically removes the stock making the gun lighter allow you to have better mobility. The gun is faster without the stock, which will speed up both your movement and ADS. You will, however, lose some control over the recoil. It will be worthwhile, though, because of the speed boost.

Best Vaznev 9K Perks And Equipment

You can employ these perks with pretty much any loadout you want. These perks are currently the best in the game, so you should try them out. Your optimal configuration will be completed by Equipment and Perks. They will offer you the extra boost you require to eliminate your competitors completely. The following perks and gear are included with the Vaznev 9K Loadout 2. We are going to be running the Weapon Specialist Perk Package

Your first basic perk will be Overkill so that you can run two primary weapons at the same time in Loadout 2.

Additionally, you can see opponent traps and field improvements through barriers, giving you the element of surprise. Your movement won’t be predictable to the adversaries. Aiming down sight can ping adversaries in your field of view, letting you and your allies know exactly where they are.

Ultimate Perk 

The ultimate perk available in the package is the Survivor Perk. The Survivor Perk is more of a team perk so it won’t really be useful in a solo queue. However, it will be a lot of help with queueing with friends or playing with teammates. The perk allows you to get revived faster and also pings the enemy that downed you. Putting the enemy at a disadvantage and giving you a higher chance at survival. 


When looking to run and gun, the Stun grenade is undoubtedly the most tactical weapon a player can have. All seasoned COD players should be aware of its significance and how, when used skillfully, it may change the course of a battle. Despite the slightly smaller area of effect, the reaction your opponent experiences nearly always results in a kill.
As a result, the Stun makes a fantastic entry tool before sprinting into a room or structure. You can then use your Vaznev-9K to stomp them to death. 

The Semtex is a practical grenade with a fuse that adheres to surfaces. For the optimum Vaznev-9K loadout, a large area of effect is crucial, and because of its sticking power, it is especially helpful at choke points.
