JoeWo’s throwback Warzone OTs 9 loadout is perfect for Rebirth Island

YouTuber JoeWo has brought the OTs 9 back into the ‘best Warzone SMG’ talk after showing how effective it can still be on Rebirth Island.

Warzone’s Season 2 Reloaded SMG meta has been stagnant so far with the MP40 and Welgun dominating the top of the order, but that doesn’t mean all other SMGs are completely useless.

JoeWo, Warzone’s resident Movement King, has taken it upon himself to show how the long-abandoned 2021 OTs 9 build can still be used to great effect if you know when and where to use it.

JoeWo Shows Why The OTs 9 Is Still Viable For Rebirth

His equipment is basic and stays reasonably well within the confines of the old gun metaversion.

The weapon’s biggest advantage is its strafe speed, which allows you to remain elusive during those close-up firefights.

OTS 9 Warzone Gear

  • End of a loop: GRU suppressor
  • Walk: 8.1 “Task Force”
  • Stock: Spetsnaz
  • Ammunition: VDV 40 Round Fast Mag
  • rear handle: hose wrap

While the MP40, Welgun, and STEN have the overall performance advantage over the OTs, this strafe advantage can amplify much of that disparity and allow you to outsmart the opposition.

JoeWo's OTs 9 Warzone Gear The OTs 9 has fallen out since dominating the meta in 2021, but it still has plenty of kick to it.

Now the rest of the gear has some room to improvise. If you’re comfortable rocking a Kar98k or Swiss K31, these are easygoing and obvious companions that will complement your motion-based SMG build well.

Alternatively, you can turn to the Cooper Carbine or the new controversial Volk gear to protect yourself from a distance.

The only correct answer is the gun you feel most comfortable with when the fight starts moving too far in front of you.
