Best Nikita AVT Loadout in Warzone Season 5

Pick the perfect replacement for the AS44.

Despite all of the weapon changes in Warzone Season 5, the Nikita AVT assault rifle made it through unscathed. The Call of Duty: Vanguard weapon was already a high-tier choice in the battle royale, but some guns being nerfed opened up new opportunities.

In the current meta, the Nikita AVT loadout is one of the best for players who want to run a sniper support class. With the AS44 taking a back seat in Warzone, the AVT is the next best weapon for an assault rifle and SMG hybrid. This guide will show you all the attachments you need for the best class possible.

Warzone Season 5 – Best Nikita AVT Loadout

There are a handful of rifles in Warzone that can take on the role of sniper support or as a long-range primary depending on attachments. The Nikita AVT is certainly one of them, but we’re going to focus on sniper support for our build. It’s time for a new rifle to push the AS44 out of the meta. You’ll find all of the necessary attachments below.

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 546mm Sniper
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Stock: ZAC Padded
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 60 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Perk 1: Perfectionist
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

For a sniper support build, we want to equip the Mercury Silencer rather than the MX Silencer for the muzzle. Because the weapon needs to do well as a secondary, it’s more important to have control and mobility. You’ll lose some range, but it won’t matter when you have a sniper as a primary.

After the muzzle, we need a good barrel for the Nikita AVT. On this loadout, the Kovalevskaya 546mm Sniper is used for the damage, accuracy, and range that it provides. Fire rate and sprint to fire will take a small hit, but the positives are much higher. Some higher bullet velocity from the barrel doesn’t hurt either.

Next, you’ll need some good supporting attachments such as grips and a stock. They should be geared towards aim walk movement and weapon handling as a secondary. The M1930 Strife Angled, the Taped Grip, and the ZAC Padded are all perfect additions in this regard. You’ll be able to strafe around corners and swap back to your sniper in an instant.

Ammunition is the final important factor in this build, and for the ammo type, you can choose Lengthened or Subsonic. Then in the magazine slot, the 6.5mm Sakura 60 Round Drums are perfect for Warzone Season 5. The weapon will lose some damage but will gain control, movement speed, and a higher fire rate. With everything together, it’s the perfect replacement for the AS44 sniper support.
