If you want to know how to utilize the Vaznev-9K in Modern Warfare 2 ranked play to make the top 250, look no further than this build by Anthony “Shotzzy” Cuevas-Castro.

The OpTic Texas star has fought his way into that top echelon and he’s now sharing the weapon loadout he used to do it in a video.

The 21-year-old SMG player was previously using the TAQ-56 loadout before eventually landing here on the Vaznev-9K.

It’s always worth noting when going over loadouts from professional players that they are unable to use tuning in the Call of Duty League — therefore you’ll only be able to see which attachments they use.

For tuning, you’ll want to test different settings yourself in order to best suit your own personal needs and play style.

In addition, Shotzzy explained that he’s only utilizing the Otrezat stock currently because CDL matches are played on an older patch. He stated that once they move to the current patch he will be making the switch to the Broadside FCT.

If it wasn’t for the ban on the ISO Hemlock for both Modern Warfare 2 ranked as well as the CDL, most players would be making use of the extremely powerful assault rifle.

Without it though, it seems the Vaznev-9K is definitely worth exploring.
