Presenting itself with a slower but puncher fire rate than other assault rifles, the C58 can be an interesting contestant on the roster in both Warzone and Black Ops: Cold War.
This page will cover how to unlock the C58 in the quickest way possible, and our the best C58 loadout and C58 class recommendations.

How to unlock the C58 in Warzone
The C58 can be acquired by purchasing shop blueprints or just by leveling up the battle pass.
To unlock the C58 in Warzone and Black Ops: Cold War, you must get to tier 31 of the battle pass (this includes the free version).
This is great, since you don't have to stick to an specific challenge this time round. The downside is that this task is rather time consuming - unless you opt for the battle pass edition that also grants 20 tier levels, it's gonna take more than a couple matches to get there.
It may not matter much considering the weapon is available from the get-go to unlock at the start of Season 4, and you'll get to level 15 eventually just by playing. But if you want to speed things up, we recommend pursuing playlists that last longer - such as Fireteam Sat-Link in Black Ops: Cold War or Outbreak in Zombies.
If you're opting for Warzone instead, we recommend sticking to battle royale and try to survive the longest time possible, completing objectives and taking down as many enemies as you can.
Best Warzone C58 loadout and attachments
Below are our recommendations for an optimal C58 loadout:
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor (Unlocks at level 46)
- Barrel: 18.7" Ranger (Unlocks at level 30)
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x (Unlocks at level 22)
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip (Unlocks at level 41)
- Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd (Unlocks at level 34)
The Agency Suppressor requires quite a bit of leveling, but it's the best in the muzzle category. Alongside sound suppression to keep the weapon as silent as possible, it comes with an increase to bullet velocity, damage range and vertical recoil control. Both the aiming stability and aim down sight speed will be affected slightly, but not by a large margin.
Onto the barrel. We're going to increase that bullet velocity and vertical recoil control even further with the 18.7" Ranger. Your aiming speed while walking is decreased as a result, as well as the rifle's hip fire accuracy, though it's worth the trade-off.
Instead of a laser or a stock, the C58 really benefits from an optic. In particular we've found the Axial Arms 3x to be the best option, granting zoom magnification with a decent iron sight. Combined with our choices for the muzzle and barrel categories, long distance damage will be as powerful as it can be, so having a clear view of distant targets is important.
Next, the underbarrel. We've opted for the Field Agent Grip this time round, which boosts both horizontal and vertical recoil control. Firing and ADS firing movement speed get a decrease, but only slightly. Even though the recoil in the C58 is fairly manageable by default, the rather slow fire rate requires for you to almost never miss a shot to make the most of the weapon, so it's key to have it on check.
Lastly, ammunition. This is key since the magazine will be somewhat limited from the get-go, for which the STANAG 55 Rnd can help greatly. It comes with the cost of reducing ADS time and reload quickness, but this won't be a big worry.
Warzone Season 4 Reloaded is here! Check out the new Season 4 Battle Pass skins as well as how to find Red Doors, Uplink Stations and crashed Satellites and use Special Weapons for the Nail Gun. As well as new additions C58, MG 82 and OTs 9, learn our recommendations for the best weapons across the game, including assault rifles and popular choices such as the AMAX, AMP 63, CARV.2, FARA 83, Stoner 63, AK-47, Bullfrog, PPSh-41 and Swiss K31.
Best Warzone C58 class setup, perks and equipment
Here's our choices for the best items - such as equipment and Perks - to make the best C58 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)
- Primary: Swiss K31 (Unlocks at level 15 of the Battle Pass)
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor (Unlocks at level 30)
- Lethal: Proximity Mine (Unlocks at level 43)
The C58 isn't as fast as other assault rifles, but the fire rate is compensated with tonnes of damage. It won't take long to start taking down enemies, so beginning health regeneration immediately after each battle with Quick Fix makes for a great combo. If level 42 sounds a bit steep, go for E.O.D., which will help to mitigate damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire until then.
As per usual we recommend opting for Overkill as the second perk. As for our weapon of choice, the PPSh-41 is the perfect pair. Since our C58 build focuses on long range distances, it's good to have a short range option to counter any enemies at close proximities quickly and efficiently.
Whenever a target manages to sneak up on you, don't fret, as Amped will increase the speed of switching weapons.
As for equipment, we opted to use the Heartbeat Sensor ourselves. If you lose sight of a target or just want to double check the perimeter before going inside a building, a quick look at the sensor is a great strategy.
Lastly, we can't recommend the Proximity Mine enough; it's quick to deploy and will always cover your back, especially if you place it at the side of entrances or stairs. Stray frag grenades only cause noise in the distance, but even if the mine fails, it will still serve as an alarm of enemies approaching your location.
