The CX-9 submachine gun was finally added to Warzone on Tuesday, after briefly dropping to the game and then being pulled back out several months ago. The new submachine gun has a high fire rate and is great for close-quarters engagements. It didn't take long for the Warzone scientists like JGOD from going in and testing the attachments, so we now know some of the top builds for the gun.
Here is the best loadout for the CX-9 submachine in Warzone.
Overview of the CX-9 Submachine gun
Based on the testing from JGOD and others, we can confidently say that the CX-9 Submachine gun boasts a realistic time of kill of just over a half-second up close, and that drops off quickly to .7 seconds past 17 meters. While its damage stats aren't particularly impressive, its base reload speed is only 1.2 seconds which is very fast. With sleight of hand, it can reload in less than a second, even with the full 50-round drum magazine.
This gun does feature a significant amount of recoil, so a good loadout for it will minimize some of that recoil while maximizing its fast reload to give you an advantage over the Cold War weapon slow pokes.
Best attachments to use for the CX-9 in Warzone
- Monolithic Suppressor
- Ranger Foregrip
- 50 Round Drum Magazine
- Sleight of Hand
- CX-FR Barrel
Per usual, you are going to want to suppress your weapon. Suppressors help keep you stealthy and slightly reduce the overall recoil on your weapon. The stealth meta is still more than healthy in Warzone, so definitely run with a Monolithic Suppressor.
The Ranger Foregrip adds recoil control and aim stability to this gun. It will slightly reduce your mobility, but your mobility will generally be outclassed by weapons like the Mac-10 or the MP5 anyway, so you might as well make this gun a little more versatile. This is an especially good attachment if you are looking to use this gun in those medium-range conflicts.
Sleight of Hand
The Sleight of Hand bonus, when added to an already stellar reload speed, really makes this gun feel special. It feels like you always have time to reload because your reload is just so fast. If you are going to use this weapon, you are definitely going to want to maximize its reload time.
50 Round Drum Magazine
This gun shreds through ammo very quickly, so having the extra bullets in your magazine is important. With sleight of hand in the mix, the additional reload time is more than taken care of using this build, with the reload time still coming in at less than a second to reload.
This stock is unique to the CX-9. It adds additional ADS speed and extra movement speed at the cost of a little bit of recoil control. The extra ADS speed helps this gun feel just a little bit smoother and more nimble in gun fights.
