Optic: The iron sights are as clear as day, so an Optic isn’t necessary unless you need to complete challenges.
Muzzle: Suppressors are always a solid choice in Warzone. Consider using the Agency Suppressor for Akimbo 1911s, as the ADS penalty is negligible for a weapon you can’t ADS, or choose the Sound Suppressor when using a single weapon, as the Effective Damage Range penalty won’t affect your most effective tactic with this weapon as much.
Barrels: The Task Force Barrel’s changes to bullet velocity and damage range make it a standout attachment for this weapon. Although you’ll have to deal with some recoil, these benefits can be worth it.
Body: Flashlights increase range and movement speed, and Lasers help with hip-fire spread. The Ember Sighting Point does both, but it’s not as effective as the Tiger Team Spotlight as a range increaser, or the 5mw Laser for hip-fire accuracy. We chose the Tiger Team Spotlight as an underrated movement speed booster, in addition to its benefits to effective damage range.
Magazine: The more ammo, the better. Although it will considerably hurt ADS speed, the Salvo 14 Rnd Fast Mag is the gold standard in helping you dish out plenty of hurt in squad-based games.
Handle: This attachment is not as necessary when using Dual Wield, as the Handles that are most often used are ones that quicken ADS speed. When using a single 1911, however, we like the Serpent Wrap, as it offers the greatest ADS speed improvement.
Stock: To Dual Wield or not to Dual Wield, that is the question. With most sidearms, their viability as a strong secondary could be tied to having two pistols instead of one.
Will the exact setup we gave in that image rock the meta? Probably not, but it does allow you to experiment outside of traditional Akimbo setups. That’s the joy of experimentation in Warzone; you may find that an incredibly mobile, fast-firing single Pistol serves you better as a Secondary Weapon than other, more popular choices. The most effective tactics available may not be your most effective tactics, so don’t be afraid to try something new across the 100+ weapons in the game.
With that said, a single 1911 offers a unique CQB option, one that can be silent yet deadly with several solidly placed chest and head shots. When it has a Body attachment like the Tiger Team Spotlight that boosts Movement Speed, it allows for some fast strafing and advanced movement techniques that can lead to some elite elimination tactics.
In the hands of a skilled Operator, this weapon can be just as deadly as a full-auto Primary at close range… so long as you hit those shots.
