The PDSW 528 is one of the best SMGs in Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded due to its consistent damage at close range.

The PDSW 528 is one of the most popular weapons in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 following the recent Season 3 Reloaded balance changes. It is currently one of the top weapons in the meta because of how reliable it is at close range. Here is a breakdown of the best loadout for the PDSW 528 in Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 Reloaded.

Best Warzone 2.0 PDSW 528 Loadout for Season 3 Reloaded

Whenever you craft a Warzone 2.0 build, there are two important stats that almost every weapon build wants - bullet velocity and damage range. Once you achieve the optimal numbers for both stats, you want to focus on getting the best magazine possible to reduce the frequency of your reloads. Here are the attachments that we recommend using in your PDSW 528 loadout: 

  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp

  • Barrel: FTAC Series IX 14.5″

  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro

  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip

  • Comb: Mack 8 Ontrak Comb

The Cronen Mini Pro is the go-to optic for SMGs but if you prefer a different sight, feel free to swap it out. The rest of the attachments are strongly recommended to leave unchanged. Pairing the PDSW 528 with an assault rifle is the best way to get the most mileage out of it. While sniper and shotgun-based loadouts are great, double primaries are meta right now in Season 3 Reloaded.

Best perks for PDSW 528 in Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time

  • Base Perk 2: Bomb Squad

  • Bonus Perk: Resupply

  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert

  • Lethal: Grenade

  • Tactical Equipment: Stun Grenade

Double Time improves your tactical sprint duration by 50% and it is a must-have for any SMG build. Bomb Squad is also great for preventing deaths from grenades and claymores, which is a great secondary perk to have.
