In recent weeks, Akimbo X13 auto pistols have been the go-to secondary weapon in Warzone 2, but IceManIsaac has discovered a "broken" Pistol loadout that kills even faster.
If you want to win, finding the finest Warzone 2 loadout can be tricky, but the ideal weapon combination can be found. From the first visit to Al Mazrah back in 2022, the RPK and Fennec 45 combo has been the most popular.
Those who didn't want to lose a Perk in Overkill chose the Akimbo X13 Auto Pistols, due to their ability to eliminate enemies at close range. In fact, players have demanded that they be replaced in the next update.
According to Warzone 2 expert IceManIsaac, there is a Basilisk build with a faster TTK than Akimbo X13s, which also comes with a lot of other benefits.
Isaac unveiled a Snakeshot Basilisk loadout he described as "one of the most broken things" he'd ever seen, and it doesn't even include the Akimbo attachment in his February 9 video.
When comparing the stats, he found that the Magnum killed faster than the X13s up to around 6 meters, and matches them up to 8 meters. This suggests the Basilisk is the superior choice for fighting inside buildings.
“These Akimbo Pistols have a lot of hip-fire spread. This Basilisk I'm about to demonstrate you doesn't have much spread at all, it's pretty reliable,” the YouTuber said. “It's [stronger] than the actual, full-on 12-gauge Shotguns in the game.”
Later, he compared the movement speeds of both loadouts and found that the Basilisk was the winner once again, offering the player a much faster running speed and a "instantaneous" ADS speed.
Check out IceManIsaac's Snakeshot Basilisk loadout in Warzone 2 below.
Snakeshot Basilisk loadout by IceManIsaac in Warzone 2
- Laser: Revo-LSD 7mW
- Trigger Action: Bryson HTA
- Rear Grip: SO RO-99 Grip
- Loader: S40 Rapid Loader
- Ammunition: .500 Snakeshot
IceManIsaac started his Basilisk loadout with the Revo-LSD 7mW laser for improved hip-fire accuracy at close range. Then he added the Bryson HTA trigger action to boost the fire rate, allowing players to land follow-up shots quickly.
The SO RO-99 Grip is an excellent ADS speed boost that makes the Basilisk feel quite nimble. It also works well with the S40 Rapid Loader, which greatly reduces the time it takes to reload when taking on a whole squad.

Isaac stated that the primary reason he's sharing this build right now is because it's so powerful that he expects the developers to nerf it in Warzone 2 Season 2. Therefore, we recommend making the most of it as soon as you can.
