There were a ton of weapon balancing changes in the Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update.
Raven Software called it the "biggest balance update in game history." While most balances featured nerfs to weapons, a few guns got the opposite treatment.
The PKM, along with weapons like the Uzi, received smaller buffs instead of smaller nerfs in the update. While not dramatic buffs, they could be enough to make the PKM one of the best LMGs in Warzone after the update.
Regardless of whether this is true or not, fans will definitely want to reload it and see for themselves.
Best PKM Loadout in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded
The PKM buff in Warzone sees the maximum weapon damage increased by one point, from 31 to 32.
While its maximum damage range has also been reduced, this should make the PKM deadlier at close to mid range.
To complement its buff, the PKM also has a new loadout that utilizes its new damage profile. We recommend using these attachments if you want to have the best class setup for PKM in Season 4 Reloaded.
Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
Barrel: 26.9″ extended barrel
Laser: Laser Tactical
Optical: VLK 3.0x Optics
Sub-barrel: Snatch Grip
The extended 26,9 inch barrel and monolithic suppressor are what make this loadout work. Both attachments increase damage range while the suppressor also silences player fire.
The PKM should be a mid to long range monster with these two attachments. Rounding out the loadout we have the Tac Laser and Snatch Grip for added time and ADS mobility, which helps the PKM counter those pesky SMGs at close range.
Finally, the optic in place is the VLK 3.0x, which is perfect for the type of shootouts you'll be getting into using the PKM. If you haven't tried the PKM before Season 4 Reloaded, now might be the best time to test out the LMG in Warzone.
