The buffed standard Suppressor is now a great option for Cold War guns in Warzone.
Most weapon loadouts in Warzone include the heavyweight suppressor. Whether that is called the Monolithic, Agency, GRU, or Wrapped Suppressor, players almost always use the heaviest one that increases damage range.
However, the latest Warzone update has made the standard suppressor on Cold War guns a much better option. It is also by far the best choice to use on SMGs.
Warzone Suppressor Buff in Season 3 Reloaded
The complete Warzone Season 3 Reloaded patch notes detail a load of changes to weapons, including a load of huge sniper rifle buffs. The update has also introduced many exciting new POIs to Verdansk ’84.
However, one of the slightly overlooked changes in the new update is the buff to the standard Suppressor, which players never used to use.
Luckily, Call of Duty YouTuber Xclusive Ace has revealed the exact stats for the Suppressor in Warzone after the buff. So now, you can make the choice on whether you should use it or not.
Better Than The Agency Suppressor?
Xclusive Ace compared the buffed Suppressor to the Agency Suppressor that Warzone players currently use in their meta loadouts
He found that it isn’t worth using for assault rifles but is actually the best option for SMGs. This is because it increases your ADS time by 5%, whereas the Agency Suppressor reduces ADS time by up to 10%.
The updated Suppressor also increases bullet velocity by 20% and sprint out time by 5%, but decreases damage range by 15%. The Agency Suppressor increases bullet velocity by 35% and damage range by 10% however, you don’t really need it for a close-range SMG.
Therefore, if you want to use a close-range SMG in Warzone, the added mobility of the buffed Suppressor will definitely be a much better attachment to use. Make sure to equip it to one of the best meta SMG loadouts in Warzone Season 3.
Meanwhile, the explosive ’80s Action Heroes event has started in Warzone. Make sure you know how to open the loot-filled Nakatomi Plaza vault before you drop into Verdansk though. Also, find out where to collect the Rambo POW Dog Tags in the new Survival camps to complete the challenge.
