If you’re looking for the best Vaznev-9k loadout you can find for Modern Warfare 2, then I’d say checking out Seth “Scump” Abner’s build is a good place to start.

The former professional Call of Duty League player retired early in 2023, but has continued to play the game and represent OpTic Texas with watch parties and more.

Luckily for us, and it seems you too, Call of Duty YouTube Cbass has released a full video going over the legendary player’s loadout for the powerful SMG.

Kicking things off with the muzzle, this, he says, is a discovery OpTic’s Daniel “Ghosty” Rothe made and has since been picked up by many. The discovery was the power of the Spiral V3.5 Flash Hider which provides muzzle flash concealment and recoil steadiness.

In terms of the rear grip, this will help improve the mobility of the SMG. The sprint-to-fire speed is bumped up alongside the aim-down-sight speed. You give up a little recoil control, but it’s well worth it given the rest of the loadout.

Sticking with speed, the Otrezat stock is up next. You’ll move faster when aiming and you’ll be able to run faster when using this stick.

For the underbarrel, the FSS Sharkfin 90 is the attachment of choice. Helping to increase the stability of the weapon, this underbarrel is all about letting you land the shots you need.

Tuning isn’t enabled for ranked play, so you won’t have to worry about that. However, feel free to take it into multiplayer and play with tuning if you want to use it there.
