Original source (on modern site)

The best secondary weapon in Warzone 2.0 is the X12 akimbo. The TTK is just absurd, and the hip-fire accuracy is fantastic. Here's the attachment setup you want, including unlock paths and tuning.

When people talk about the Warzone 2 meta, they're usually referring to the best primary weapons. But with the way Perk Packages work in Warzone 2, you often won't have Overkill available to just choose two primary weapons. Iinstead, you'll need a good secondary. And right now the best secondary is the X12 akimbo. These pistols can fire almost as quickly as you can pull the trigger, which gives them an outstanding short-range TTK for secondary weapons. You can find the best attachments and tuning for the X12 akimbo below.

We ordinarily provide you with perk and equipment suggestions in our Warzone loadouts, but as this is only a secondary weapon, we'll stick to attachments and tuning. If you are interested in a complete loadout guide, check out some of the best primary weapons you can use with the X12:

Note: This is a build for Warzone 2.0, if you're interested in choosing a good secondary for Modern Warfare 2 then you want this overview of sidearms of MW2.

Because we're using the X12 akimbo, we can't aim down sight. That gives us way more freedom than we normally have with building weapons, because we can completely ignore one of the stats that you usually can't afford to sacrifice: ADS Speed. So with the attachments above we've chosen all the things we would normally avoid, which punish ADS but give us extended damage range. We've also taken a laser to improve hip-fire, and a lightened trigger action to give us a faster fire rate, improving the TTK even more.

If you need to grind some weapons for these attachments, here's a link to buy Modern Warfare 2.

And that was your quick overview of the akimbo X12 build. These puppies absolutely shred up-close, and we think they're worth taking over pretty much any other secondary option. If you've got any other good suggestions for sidearm builds let us know in the comments, just put the attachments and tunings, and we'll try it out.
