The best Warzone RA 225 loadouts turn the RA 225 from a hectic, uncontrollable SMG into a reliable close to medium-range weapon sporting some of the highest mobility and fire rate in Warzone. New in Warzone's latest season, there aren't many guns that can compete with the RA 225's time-to-kill at close range. If you love running and gunning, you'll want to check out this detailed overview of the best Warzone RA 225 loadout and attachments.

To unlock the RA 225 SMG, you'll need to reach Tier 31 in the Warzone Season 5: Last Stand Battle Pass. If that's too much of a grind and you want to try out the RA 225 ASAP, you can purchase the Battle Pass Bundle with 25 Tier skips or buy a Bundle in the Store that includes a RA 225 Blueprint.

The RA 225 is a fast-paced player's dream, offering absurd mobility and fire rate. Unfortunately, the impressive fire rate and mobility stats come at the cost of damage and recoil control. But with the right set of attachments, you can cover up its flaws.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Urban Rapid 11"
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Valenta Kotva
  • Underbarrel: SG98 Compact
  • Magazine: 9mm 55 Round Drum
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The attachments on this list are designed to further increase the RA 225's fire rate while working to also bring its recoil down to a more manageable level. You'll lose a little bit of mobility overall with attachments like the Valenta Kotva Stock, but the increase in accuracy and recoil control makes it a worthy trade-off.

Outside of its sub-par damage and hard-to-control recoil, the RA 225's main drawback is how fast it shreds through ammo. To counter this, you'll need to use the 9mm 55 Round Drum and Fully Loaded in the Perk 2 slot. Otherwise, you're going to be constantly reloading and hunting down ammunition.

You'll need to dedicate some time to unlock all of the attachments, but after putting in the work, you'll have a RA 225 loadout that can't be beat at close range.

With a RA 225 in hand, you'll be absolutely cruising around Caldera and Rebirth Island. With this in mind, the Warzone Serpentine Perk is a necessity to lessen incoming damage while on the run.

Despite our Warzone best RA 225 loadout's focus on recoil control and accuracy, the RA 225 SMG was simply not built to compete in long-range engagements. If you want to be ready for any situation, use Overkill and pair the RA 225 with one of the Warzone best Snipers

Finally, for equipment, Stims will increase your movement speed to a whole new level and offer instant healing in a pinch. For your Lethal, Throwing Knives are nifty for finishing off downed opponents without needing to burn through that precious ammunition.

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: 3-Line Rifle
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stim

That's everything you need to create the best Warzone RA 225 loadout. Give the RA 225 a try in the new Operation: Last Call limited-time mode.
