Unlock the Sykov faster by playing the Plunder mode in Call of Duty Warzone

To get the Sykov for free, players need to get four kills with any pistol in 5 different games. Naturally, the normal BR games are going to be way too long. Additionally, going up against players with AR, SMG, and sniper classes will also be troublesome. However, there is an easy shortcut that can get players the Sykov in just 5 games.

Call of Duty Warzone currently features the Plunder game mode. This game mode is much more dynamic and also involves multiple respawns. Therefore, players have more chances of getting 4 kills in a single game with a pistol, even if they die a couple of times.

Right behind the new Sykov is the Diamatti pistol. It would be the perfect weapon to use when players are trying to unlock the all-new handgun as it gives a tough fight to both SMGs and ARs.

The right attachments can help players achieve an insanely fast time-to-kill (TTK) with the Sykov. In addition to these attachments, the Akimbo makes the gun even more powerful. In fact, the perfect Akimbo class can ensure that the full-auto handgun can achieve a TTK even higher than the FFAR, one of the most powerful ARs in Call of Duty Warzone right now.

Besides the Akimbo attachment, players should use the Sorokin 140mm Auto barrel, 5mW Laser, 80 round drums, and the VLK Prizrak grip. The high ammo, double shot, and accuracy of the weapon with the laser prove to be overkill even when facing an SMG or an AR in close range.

Naturally, since Akimbo makes the weapon hip-fire only, players can only use it in a short-range. However, if coupled with a powerful primary of choice, the loadout can prove lethal in almost every scenario. Get ready to ride the bandwagon as the Sykov takes over Verdansk.
