The Best Warzone CX-9 Loadouts

The Warzone best CX-9 loadouts are a very hot topic of discussion right now (at least until the next new guns come along), because the SMG is proving to be dominant with the right attachments. You can't equip the SMG in Call of Duty Warzone right away though, because you first need to know how to unlock the CX-9 in Warzone, before you start to think about which CX-9 attachments you want to use in your loadout. Here's everything you need to know about the Warzone best CX-9 loadouts and how to unlock it in the first place.

Warzone Best CX-9 Loadouts: How To Unlock It

Warzone best CX-9 loadouts: How to unlock it

So you want to equip the Warzone best CX-9 loadouts, but you haven't unlocked the gun yet. How do you go about doing so? Thankfully, the required tasks to unlock the CX-9 aren't actually too difficult:

  • Get 2 Longshot kills using an SMG in 5 different matches

Once you've completed that task, the CX-9 will be yours to start unlocking attachments. The focus has been on Black Ops Cold War recently which makes the CX-9 an interesting addition to Warzone, simply because it's a Modern Warfare gun. We'd recommend hopping back into 2019's Modern Warfare multiplayer to knock this challenge out of the park quickly, rather than trying to get it in the much longer Warzone matches. If you don't have Modern Warfare, then jump into Plunder to get it done quicker because you can respawn, and you start with your chosen loadout.

Of course, if you'd rather skip the unlocking stage entirely, you can head to the in-game store and buy the respective blueprint

Warzone Best CX-9 Loadouts: Up Close And Personal

Our first CX-9 loadout is one that you'll want to run with if you're getting up close and personal, and is better suited to Rebirth Island or areas of Verdansk where there's enough cover. The huge magazine and quick reload means you'll be able to almost constantly fire, while the laser helps with hip-fire accuracy. The Monolithic Suppressor and rear grip help with recoil and damage range when you have no choice but to shoot at a distance.

Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
Laser: 5mW Laser
Rear Grip: CX-9 Clutch Grip
Ammunition: 50 Round Drums
Perk: Sleight Of Hand

This CX-9 loadout is more suited to those of you who want to roam Verdansk and may not have a long-range weapon alongside your SMG to deal with the longer encounters. Use the CX-38S barrel for increased damage, then stick on the Merc Foregrip and CX-9 Clutch Grip to help with the significant recoil this gun can have at range. The optic will help with picking targets off too. Finally, keep the huge mag from the previous loadout to keep up the constant firing. Reloading will take a little longer, but since you're playing less frantically with this build, it shouldn't matter as much.

Barrel: CX-38S
Rear Grip: CX-9 Clutch Grip
Optic: G.I. Mini Reflex
Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
Ammunition: 50 Round Drums

Warzone Best CX-9 Loadouts: Perks & Equipment

Warzone best CX-9 loadouts: Perks and equipment

Finally, we come to the recommend perks and equipment to run alongside the Warzone best CX-9 loadouts. Of course, you may want to tweak these based on your playstyle, but this is what we find works best:

Perks: E.O.D, Overkill/Ghost, Amped

Secondary Weapon: Kar98k (with Overkill)/Sykov (with Ghost)

Equipment: Throwing Knife/Heartbeat Sensor

You have the choice of whether to go for Overkill or not; if you do, I'd recommend one of the Warzone best snipers, the Kar98k, in your second weapon slot. If you don't, then the Sykov is arguably the best pistol. E.O.D and Amped are two must-have perks in Warzone which is why you find almost everyone rocking them, whereas the Overkill alternatives are Ghost or High Alert. Ghost is our preference thanks to those pesky UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors, but High Alert is just as valid a choice.

The Throwing Knife may seem like an odd choice when it comes to lethal equipment, but the main benefit is that you can fling one at any downed enemies to finish them off instantly without having to waste time shooting them then reloading, which can be crucial under pressure. The Heartbeat Sensor is major key in Warzone too, helping you to eliminate any players camping in buildings... as long as they don't have Ghost.
