Meta RPK Attachments in Warzone 2

The TY-LR8 is the best muzzle for the RPK in Warzone 2 as it reduces horizontal recoil more than any other barrel. 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 AIM OP-V4, thanks to its low visual recoil, but equip whichever optic you like the most.

We have opted for the FTAC Ripper 56 over other good underbarrels like the Edge-47 Grip and Lockgrip Precision 40 as it doesn’t reduce your movement speed. Additionally, it reduces vertical and horizontal recoil by 4%.

Next, the 7.62 High Velocity ammunition gives you more accuracy at long range by increasing the RPK’s bullet velocity by 44%.

Finally, the Demo-X2 Grip is an extremely underrated attachment for the RPK. This is because it reduces recoil without slowing down your ADS time.
