Best BAS-P Loadout in Warzone and Modern Warfare 3

BAS-P is pretty good.

The BAS-P was slowly creeping to the top of the META by the end of Warzone 2 so we never got to see this SMG shine. Now that we have entered a new age, we are here to see if the BAS-P’s best loadout can contend with the new dogs.

Best BAS-P Attachments

This small SMG spent a significant duration of its lifespan being forgotten and gathering dust, until the last season of Warzone 2, where buffs finally brought it to META status. But now that Warzone 2 is dead we must uncover the BAS-P’s best loadout. The weapon has an already impressive base with a high fire rate, and decent control, but a shorter range than MW3 SMGs. With a few choice attachments, we can help this struggle weapon come into its own.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: XRK Sandstorm
  • Barrel: 6.5″ Bruen Drake
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
  • Ammunition: 9MM Overpressured
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

Just like all MW2 weapons, the BAS-P has a lot of recoil that we want to do away with entirely so our consistency is as high as possible. To achieve this we use the XRK Sandstorm and the XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop, a duo pairing that both reduces recoil, and gun kick and increases our mobility just a smidge.

Our barrel is the 6.5″ Bruen Drake meant to focus on mobility alone, increasing movement speed, ADS, hipfire spread, and recoil so that the BAS-P can keep up with META SMGs. Next up we want some extra oomph, so we use the 9MM Overpressured to give our bullets some extra bite to them.

Finally, the 50-round drum is a must-have in the Warzone environment to ensure you can consistently kill a player without reloading.

Best BAS-P Perks

Here we will list our general perk package for Warzone, feel free to swap in other perks to your preference, but for those wanting a basic set that will do them good, then read on.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Perk 1: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 2: Double Time
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: High Alert

Since Warzone features double primary weapons, Sleight of Hand may just be the better option than swapping weapons, especially if you rock a sniper as one of your weapons. Reloading quicker cannot be underestimated in certain circumstances. Double Time is an absolute must-have in Warzone. We prefer Tempered in slot 3 as it gives us a faster plating time, utilizes more efficient plates, and frees up some backpack space for grenades, flashes, or other gadgets.

As our last perk, we have a perk that has saved my life countless times; High Alert. Until you equip this ability and play a game of Warzone, you cannot estimate how many enemy squads are looking at the back of your head.

Best BAS-P Attachments

Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer is complete chaos with players sliding, diving, and ducking around old remastered maps at light speed. To combat this type of environment we need to lean into a full-mobility setup and thankfully, the BAS-P is already an SMG.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Barrel: 6.5″ Bruen Drake
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Flash Grip

The BAS-P has some harsh recoil, especially with this mobility-skewed class, so to combat that we use the Lockshot KT85 muzzle to reduce its gun kick.

We have a trifecta of attachments that improve mobility, the DR-6 Handstop, 6.5″ Bruen Drake, and the Bruen Flash Grip. Together they drastically increase ADS, movement, and sprint-to-fire speeds, ensuring you can keep up with the new weaponry.

Finally, we use the Slate Reflector as a clean optic to reduce visual clutter.

Best BAS-P Perks

Perks are not what you used to know them as. We now have different pieces of body armor that give you specific and unique bonuses that you can mix and match. Mobility is the name of our game here so we are looking to equip the best perks for our game plan.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Vest: Infantry Vest
  • Gloves: Quick Grip Gloves
  • Boots: Climbing Boots
  • Gear: Tac Mask

The Infantry Vest is a must-have for any high mobility class as it offers faster Tac Sprint and recharge speed for fast rotations through the maps. With the Quick Grip Gloves, you’ll be drawing your secondary from sprinting at blinding speeds and catching many opponents off-guard. Climbing Boots will have you swinging around vertical engagements like Spider-Man while negating the risk of any fall damage. Finally, the Tac Mask gives you some much-needed safety against Flashbang/Concussion equipment spam.

And there you have it, the best BAS-P loadout in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone. Be sure to check out our related Call of Duty content below for guides, news, and updates.
