If you ever played the Black Ops Cold War's alpha or even the beta for that matter, you would know that there was one weapon that stood out among the rest.
The Milano 821 is a gun that saw dominance in both the alpha and the beta, just to be later dethroned from the top submachine gun spot by the infamous MP5.
The Milano 821 offers the second-best damage profile out of all the submachine guns, making it perfect for dealing with multiple targets.
It also offers a better range profile than both the AK-74u and then MP5, making it perfect for challenging people out of the traditional submachine gun range.
Best Milano 821 Class Cold War
This class setup is all about a well balanced Milano 821, designed for its intended short-range application and the ability to push it to mid-range if needed.
- Optic: Quickdot LED
- Muzzle: SOCOM ELiminator
- Barrel: 9.5" Rifled Barrel
- Body: Steady Aim Laser Sight
- Underbarrel: SFOD Speedgrip
- Magazine: Fast Mag
- Handle: Airbrine Elastic Wrap
- Stock: Duster Stock
Starting off, this setup is the QuickDot LED for easier target acquisition as the Milano 821 doest have the cleanest iron sights.
Next on the list is range, and for this class set up, we are not looking to pick a fight with the assault rifles players. However, we also don't want to restrict ourselves to submachine gun ranges only.
9.5" Rifled Barrel
To break out of that shell, we are going to be using the 9.5" Rifled barrel, giving us a nice 25% effective damage range boost at the cost of 5% spriting move speed.
Other barrels increase the effective damage range by a considerable amount. However, they will also come with heavy hits to recoil control.
For this class set up, we are going all lean and mean for an agile and accurate loadout. For that, we will be using the SOCOM Eliminator.
This will keep our radar signature down to a quiet level but not totally silent. We will still pop up on the mini-map as the SOCOM Eliminator only conceals 85% muzzle flash and not 100%.
On the other hand, this barrel gives us an amazing boost to our recoil control by a cool 17%. Meanwhile, taking away 10% shooting move speed and decreasing our horizontal recoil control by 10% as well.
To bring that horizontal recoil back in line, we will be using the SFOD Speedgrip.
This under-barrel attachment will recuperate the horizontal recoil control we lost, netting us a modest 5% in the same department.
It will also give us a 10% boost to our overall sprinting move speed, meaning we can hit the ground running at the beginning of the match and get behind enemies lines.
Airborne Elastic Wrap
To speed up this small, compact gun, we are going to be using the Airborne Elastic Wrap. It provides an unbeatable 30% boost to our aim down sight time, but with some minor cons.
A decrease to our shooting move speed and another to our sprint to fire speed.
Moving on to the back, we are going to be using the duster stock for its 5% boost to our slide speed, allowing us to duck and weave around enemies.
Applying the fast mag attachment is a no brainer for this Milano 821 build, as it keeps us shooting even when our mags don't.
Steady Aim Laser
To close up this amazing loadout is a simple Steady Aim Laser.
This will reduce our hip-fire spread by 14% incase we get overwhelmed and have to pray it and spray it.
This is a perfect build for those of you who are starting out or those experts as it is just so easy to use, and every attachment just complements one another.

10.1" Reinforced Heavy Barrel
Starting off this aggressive submachine gun class setup is the 10.1" Reinforced Heavy Barrel.
Increasing our effective damage range by a modest 18% from 15.2 meters up a notch to 17.9 meters.
However, the 10.1" Reinforced Heavy Barrel will increase our muzzle velocity, from 225 meters per second all the way up to 405 meters per second.
This barrel is not a game-changer, but it does allow for more breathing room.
The 10.1" Reinforced Heavy Barrel will decrease both our sprinting movement speed by 4% and our aim walking movement speed by 20%.
A suppressor is a staple in every warzone class, and this loadout is no different.
For our choice, we will be going with the Agency Suppressor increasing our damage range and keeping us off the radar with a 100% muzzle flash concealment.
For our next attachment, we will be going off the "meta" with the SFOD Speedgrip.
The SFOD Speedgrip will increase our sprinting move speed by a massive 10%. Allowing us to close the gap on our enemies and get within our maximum damage range.
The SFOD Speedgrip will also boost our horizontal recoil control by 15%.
However, this under-barrel attachment does come with a 6% hit to our overall movement speed, shooting move speed, and aim walking movements speed.
SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
Since we plan to play it aggressively with this loadout, it is crucial that we have a tight hip-fire spread for those "freakout" moments.
Additionally, we will be using the SWAT 5mw Laser Sight, increasing our hip-fire accuracy by a massive 35%. In turn, reducing our aim down sight time by 8%.
45 RND Drum
We will be using the 45 RND drum for a flat boost to our total magazine capacity for our last attachment. Adding 15 rounds per mag.
The 45 RND Drum will decrease our reload speed by 10%.
Living under the shadow of the ever so popular MAC-10. The Milano 821 still boast a serious damage profile and improved handling stats, with an overall tighter hip-fire spread.
This class set up is amazing a room clearing and breaching.
However, it's when you start to stretch out those ranges that this weapon will really surprise you.
