How to get the most out of the Krig 6 in Call of Duty: Warzone.
The Krig 6 is a rapid-fire assault rifle, and should be generally regarded as one of the better close to medium-range options of its class in Call of Duty: Warzone.
In Black Ops Cold War, the Krig 6 was a solid option for close-range combat on maps like Checkmate, and now that the assault rifle has made the jump to Warzone, it’s an excellent option for destroying the competition in close and mid-range locations around the battle royale map.
In this overview of the Krig 6, we’ll be providing you with all the detailed information you need to know about the assault rifle, including the best XM4 loadout and XM4 class recommendations

How to unlock the Krig 6 in Warzone
Thankfully, the Krig 6 has a relatively low unlock level in Black Ops Cold War, and this same unlock level of 16 transfers directly over to Warzone, so players with even a few hours of playtime in the latter game should be near unlocking the new weapon.
If you haven’t yet attained level 16 in Warzone though, you’ll want to take part in some limited time events to boost your XP gains, like Plunder, as well as paying close attention to the Daily Challenges at the main Warzone menu. These are quick-fire objectives which can be completed in just a few games, or even less, and will reward you with a solid XP payout.
Best Warzone Krig 6 loadout and attachments
Here’s our best attachments that you should be bolting on to the Krig 6 when you’re dropping into Verdansk.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor (Unlocks at level 46)
- Barrel: 15″ CMV Mil-Spec (Unlocks at level 39)
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x (Unlocks at level 22)
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip (Unlocks at level 41)
- Ammunition: Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag (Unlocks at level 51)
First, you’ll want to equip the Agency Suppressor for the muzzle. This has been the go-to for many builds for a while now, and for good reason, as it improves vertical recoil control as well as increasing both bullet velocity and damage range – in addition to sound suppression, of course. It comes with an impact to aim down sight speed and the overall aiming stability, but not by a ton.
Onto the barrel. The 15″ CMV Mil-Spec is by far the best option here, further increasing all three enhancements from the muzzle, as well as improving horizontal recoil control. It comes with a few drawbacks to hip fire accuracy and overall aim speed, but the impact isn’t huge.
Instead of a laser or a stock, the Krig 6 highly benefits from an optic. We’ve found the Axial Arms 3x to be the best option, granting zoom magnification with a decent iron sight.
As for the underbarrel slot, we went for the Field Agent Grip for that extra horizontal and vertical recoil control. This attachment choice trades off minimizing the recoil of the Krig 6 to absurd levels by reducing regular and ADS firing move speed slightly.
Lastly, you can’t go wrong with the Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag, which gives you more rounds and also improves your reload speed. Compared to the STANAG 60 Rnd for example, which gives you the same rounds but has two cons without compensating neither, this is the best choice for this build.

Best Warzone Krig 6 class setup, perks and equipment
As for the best class items, such as equipment and Perks, that you should use to get the most out of the Krig 6.
- Perk 1: Quick Fix (Unlocks at level 42)
- Perk 2: Overkill (Unlocks at level 38)
- Perk 3: Amped (Unlocks at level 1)
- Secondary: Swiss K31 (Unlocks by getting 2 Headshot kills in 15 different completed matches using any sniper rifle)
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor (Unlocks at level 30)
- Lethal: Claymore (Unlocks at level 1)
With this Krig 6 build it won’t take you long to start taking down enemies, which is why beginning health regeneration immediately after each battle with Quick Fix makes for a great combo. If level 42 sounds a bit steep, we recommend opting for E.O.D., as it will help to mitigate damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire until you can unlock this perk.
As per usual we recommend opting for Overkill as the second perk. As for our weapon of choice, the Swiss K31 is the perfect pair. This sniper rifle is fast and can deal damage at great distances in just a few seconds.
If a target manages to sneak past your sniper, don’t fret, as Amped will increase the speed of the action.
Rounding out the equipment is the Heartbeat Sensor, perfect for pinpointing nearby enemy locations. Lastly, the Claymore is excellent for defending against specific points against aggressive enemy players.
