The Bullfrog in Warzone has been gaining a steady fan base over time, and it’s certainly worth the recognition, placing itself as one of the best SMGs to choose thanks to its attributes.
A deadly choice across both Warzone and Black Ops: Cold War, this SMG offers significant firepower in both close to mid ranges, leading to a short time to kill. Its devastating nature in company with a considerable magazine size that can be further expanded makes for a perfect combo.
Warzone’s Verdansk is an expansive map, which may sound like SMGs aren’t exactly the first choice for many. Nonetheless, when paired with a long range weapon using the right perk, you’ll be all set to survive against all odds. This page will cover how to unlock the Bullfrog in Warzone, and both the best Bullfrog loadout and class set up to prepare you for the battlefield.

How to unlock the Bullfrog in Warzone
The requirement for this weapon is fairly straightforward. You only have to reach Player Level 43 to unlock the Bullfrog.
As always, this can be done across Warzone, Black Ops Cold War and of course, Zombies. If you want to earn as much experience as possible in a short time, we recommend trying out modes such as Nuketown 24/7 and Team Deathmatch playlists, which are usually wrapped up in a manner of minutes.
If you are a Warzone person, we recommend prioritizing Plunder mode over battle royale. This way you can just respawn and continue gaining experience throughout the match for longer.
Best Bullfrog loadout and attachments in Warzone
Below are our recommendations for an optimal Bullfrog loadout, as well as the corresponding levels for each:
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor (unlocks at level 46)
- Barrel: 7.4″ Task Force (unlocks at level 48)
- Ammunition: 65 Rnd (unlocks at level 8)
- Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock (unlocks at level 54)
- Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap (unlocks at level 44)
This SMG excels in speed, so this loadout capitalizes on this foundation. Picking the right Muzzle is key, and this time we went for the GRU Suppressor, which has become a favourite for similar weapons such as the PPSh 41. This will ensure better vertical recoil control, as well as the usual flash concealment, with the downside of decreasing the effective damage range by 25 per cent. But don’t worry, this is just the first attachment.
Picking the 7.4″ Task Force barrel increases that affected range by 50 per cent, as well as adding overall damage and bullet velocity. It adds both horizontal and vertical control, but this will be addressed in the overall loadout.
With the sole caveat of decreasing reload quickness by a mere 10 per cent, the 65 Rnd is your go-to when it comes to ammunition. There are other options available, but the cons often disrupt the whole build a bit too much, so going for something simple that covers everything is key here.
Thanks to its short aim down sight time, it’s likely that you won’t be using the hip fire of the Bullfrog that often. Whilst that attribute takes 30 per cent less accuracy, the Spetsnaz Stock increases both the aim walking movement speed and sprint to fire time, which support the weapon’s nature greatly.
Lastly, the Serpent Wrap will further increase the already impressive aim down sight time. It comes with a 10 per cent cost of your sprint to fire time, but that’s what the Spetsnaz Stock is there for. This last choice comes down to personal preference, however, and can be swapped out for an optic of your choice!

Best Bullfrog class setup, perks and equipment in Warzone
Here’s our choices for the best items – such as equipment and Perks – to make the best Bullfrog class setup in Warzone:
- Perk 1: Quick Fix (Unlocks at level 42)
- Perk 2: Overkill (Unlocks at level 38)
- Perk 3: Amped (Unlocks at level 1)
- Secondary: Swiss K31 (Unlocks at level 31 of the Season 3 Battle Pass)
- Tactical: Stun Grenade (Unlocks at level 1)
- Lethal: Frag Grenade (Unlocks at level 1)
Similarly to the PPSh 41, you’re likely to be taking down enemies in a rapid manner. Every bit of health matters in Warzone, so Quick Fix makes for the perfect companion as it starts health regeneration immediately after. If level 41 seems a bit steep, E.O.D. is great to mitigate explosives (as long as they’re non-killstreak related) as well as fire.
As per usual, you’re gonna want to opt for Overkill in your second perk slot. We believe the Swiss K31 to be an excellent choice as a sniper that can also be used as a marksman rifle of sorts. This will guarantee you having not just short to mid, but also long range distances covered.
For the third perk, you can’t go wrong with Amped. The Swiss K31 is an excellent sniper rifle, but if an enemy happens to sneak up on you, being able to quickly switch over to your Bullfrog is key for survival.
Tactical and lethal equipment may vary greatly here depending on your playstyle, but we recommend carrying a Frag Grenade for when you need to clear an area before storming in, as well as a Heartbeat Sensor to compliment your sniper rifle.
