As it isn’t quite as strong as it used to be, you might also be interested to find out where the RPK ranks in our Warzone 2 weapons tier list!
Meta RPK Attachments in Warzone 2
The Lockshot KT85 is the best muzzle for the RPK in Warzone 2 as it reduces vertical recoil by 18.5% and horizontal recoil by 16.2%. If you haven’t unlocked this yet, then the Sakin Tread-40 and Bore-490 are also good options.
Our favorite optic for the RPK is the Schlager 3.4x, thanks to its low visual recoil and zoom level, but equip whichever optic you like the most.
The Heavy Support Stock is an extremely underrated attachment for the RPK. This is because it reduces recoil by 3%, but it also greatly increases aiming stability, reducing the visual recoil of the gun too.
We have opted for the Edge-47 Grip over other good underbarrels like the FTAC Ripper 56 and Lockgrip Precision 40 as it doesn’t reduce your movement speed. Additionally, it reduces vertical and horizontal recoil by 4%.
Finally, the 7.62 High Velocity ammunition gives you more accuracy at long range by increasing the RPK’s bullet velocity by 44%.
