Warzone’s new Sykov pistol is ridiculously overpowered

Call of Duty: Warzone has a new weapon for players to unlock: the Sykov pistol. On the surface, a new pistol in a battle royale title might not seem like it’s worth getting excited over, but it’s actually ridiculously OP. The new Sykov pistol is arguably the game’s most overpowered weapon yet, desperately requiring a patch to nerf it. Until then, players are free to use the best Sykov loadout in Warzone that is detailed below.

What is the best Sykov loadout for Warzone?

The best Sykov loadout for Call of Duty: Warzone is as follows:

  • Muzzle: Monolith Suppressor
  • Barrel: Sorokin 140mm Auto
  • Ammunition: 80 Round Drums
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Perk: Akimbo

The most important attachments are the Sorokin 140mm Auto, which enables automatic fire, and the Perk, Akimbo. The 80 Round Drums are also a huge benefit, giving each pistol 80 rounds. Use the Akimbo perk to wield two Sykov pistols for 160 total rounds.

To unlock the Sykov pistol in Warzone, players need to get four kills with pistols in five different matches.

The kill requirements can be fulfilled in either Warzone or Modern Warfare’s multiplayer. It’s easier to do it in the latter, but for those stuck with just Warzone, Plunder is the best mode to complete the Sykov challenge.

To unlock the Akimbo perk for the Sykov pistol, players will need to use the Renetti with the Mo’ Money Perk attached. Get three kills across five different matches to unlock Akimbo for pistols.

For those who missed it, there’s a powerful new killstreak in Call of Duty: Warzone. Here’s how to unlock it.
