The Sykov Pistol, or Makarov, has finally been released in Warzone and Modern Warfare. Here are the meta attachments and perks to win all close-range engagements with this unique sidearm.
In a surprise update on April 15, the long-awaited Sykov Pistol was added to Modern Warfare and Warzone. Along with the Sykov came new Radiation Zones that turn players into Zombies.
Metas usually take a few days or even weeks to form, but the Sykov became the go-to weapon overnight. Even when the weapon could be unlocked early, a look at its attachments made it highly anticipated yet feared.
Here are the best attachments and perks to run with Warzone’s Sykov Pistol in Season 2, which will likely remain the meta in Season 3.
Best Warzone Sykov attachments
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: Sorokin 140mm Auto
- Laser: 5mW Laser
- Ammunition: 80 Round Drums
- Perk: Akimbo
This Sykov is built to be unstoppable at close range, combining a rapid-fire rate, a ton of ammunition, and double the firepower.
To start, the Monolithic Suppressor will grant you extra range, meaning you don’t need to be directly in the enemy’s face to get the kill. And the 5mW Laser will give you much more hip-fire accuracy, although you will need to pull down on your mouse or analog stick slightly.
Now for the attachments that make the Sykov special. The Sorokin 140mm Auto barrel will make this pistol fully automatic, melting players’ armor off instantly. To double this firepower, you should turn the weapons Akimbo. And if these attachments aren’t enough, each Sykov can be fitted with an 80 Round Drum mag, allowing for 160 rounds of devasting damage.
Best perks to run with Warzone’s Sykov
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
You’ll spend a lot of time in enemies’ faces while using the Sykov, which means you’re in prime range to get taken out by explosives. Running E.O.D will greatly reduce explosive damage, meaning you can run through a bombardment of explosives to secure the kill.
The Sykov Pistol is a secondary weapon, so you don’t need Overkill to combine it with a primary weapon. Ghost will hide you from the minimap and Heartbeat Sensors, which is invaluable in Warzone.
As you’ll only be using these pistols when fighting up close, you’ll need to run a weapon for medium-long range. Amped will allow you…
