The best Battlefield 2042 PBX-45 loadouts are really best utilised when you are in the thick of it.

Unlike the M5A3, where you are mixing up ranges, the best Battlefield 2042 PBX-45 loadouts are dependent on how you prefer your SMG to play. For optics the plane iron sights does work well, but either the Fusion Holo or the K8 Holo are what you are wanting for quick red-dot sights. Chucking on something slightly longer ranged like the 8R Holo also can't hurt for when your enemies are a tad further away. The PBX-45 doesn't have a ton of options for ammunition, but you'll want to swap out between the Close Combat, High Power and Extended Mag, with a big emphasis on the extended mag. Then for your underbarrel the Flashlight can be great for spotting enemies quicker, the Rattlesnake Light Grip helps with range and accuracy and the LS-1 Laser Sight is the one to go for for close range hip firing. Lastly, your barrel should be split between the Champion Muzzle Brake for vertical recoil control, the 6KU Suppressor to avoid minimap detection, and the Extended Barrel for those mid-range shots.
