The best solo buy back loadout for season 5

Published the 1 October 2021

In today’s article i want to introduce a loadout that is extremely powerfull in solos, but is extremely underated! It works for Solo Buy Back but also regular solo. Obviously i could say that the best loadout would be to use a Swiss K31 paired with a Bullfrog or the EM2 with an OTS. But this would be too easy and the same recommendation as every content creator out there. If you are interested in those kind of absolute meta loadouts, make sure to check out a previous article where i describe the best loadout for solo if you are an aggressive player.


Your primary weapon: the ZRG 20MM

Yes you read that correctly. The ZRG is an amazing and overpowered sniper rifle. Yet, nobody talks about it or uses it (0.12% pick rate today according to WZRanked) and i want that to change.

Let’s talk statistics now, and for that i used True Game Data website to make the comparison between the Swiss, the HDR and the ZRG. Obvisouly the Swiss is not at all the same playstyle as the ZRG, but i still wanted to have it here to really compare with the current meta.

According to those statistics, you should always choose the ZRG over the HDR for the following reason:

  • Higher Fire rate (43 vs 32 rpm)
  • Better ADS (567 vs 573)
  • Higher movement speed
  • Lower reload time
  • and the most important one: higher bullet velocity (1287 vs 1267 m/s)

So if you are an HDR player today, you should probably give the ZRG a try. If you are a Swiss k31 you will obviously get a reduced mobility, but i can guarantee that you will not regret it everytime you will headshot your opponent in solos..

The attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: Combat Recon (a must for all Cold War snipers to max the bullet velocity)
  • Ammunition: 5rnd
  • Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip

Your secondary weapon: Cold war ak47

As explained previously, when using the ZRG you will lack mobility compared to most ennemies using the Kar98k or the Swiss k31. That’s not as issue, but you should make sure to have a secondary to handle both close range and mid range. That’s why I am suggesting to use the Cold War AK47 and not an SMG.

The Cold War AK47 is the best option right now in terms of sniper support Assault Rifle. It’s an amazing weapon that can compete in all spaces, including long range meta..

Let’s go straight to the attachment for this gun:

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.2′ Takedown
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd
  • Optic: your prefered red dot (Millstop, Microflex LED, etc.)
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock

That’s it! Please give this loadout a try and let me know how it goes.
