The Rival-9 is one of the best SMGs to use in your Warzone loadouts, thanks to its fast fire rate, quick time-to-kill, and controllable recoil.

We have made the meta Rival-9 build for Warzone by adding attachments that increase the gun’s range, accuracy, and magazine size, without sacrificing its impressive mobility!

This is the best Rival-9 loadout to use in Warzone:

  • Muzzle: Lacerta Compensator
  • Barrel: Rival-C Clearshot Barrel
  • Optic: MK.3 Reflector
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum
  • Rear Grip: Rival Vice Assault Grip

This Rival 9 build makes this powerful SMG effective at mid-range as well as close range, by greatly decreasing its recoil and improving its damage range.

For the Rival-9, you will certainly want to use the Rival Vice Assault Grip as well as an extended magazine and recoil-reducing muzzle, like the Lacerta Compensator.

However, you can swap out the optic and barrel if you want a more aggressive build that focuses purely on close range. Instead of these, you could use a shorter barrel and one of the stocks that helps your ADS and movement speed.
