The Skorpion Evo’s return has been lauded by fans, with the Rival-9 working quite well across CoD’s variety of modes. Its recoil leaves room for improvement, but its high rate of fire combined with the above attachments make it manageable and a clear favorite to dominate with.

4. Striker 9

The UMP’s return, aka the Striker 9, is an interesting weapon. While it doesn’t boast the highest fire rate of the class, its low recoil and versatility make this a surprisingly dominant choice. The above setup renders it a near laser, meaning your secondary slot is in good hands.
