Best Tec 9 Loadout Cold War

In this guide, we will run through the top stats of the weapon including the damage, rate of fire, and recoil. Then, we will suggest the 2 best classes for the Tec 9 in Black Ops Cold War. So without further ado, let’s get into the Tec-9 loadouts

The Tec 9 was released as part of Season 5 content in Black Ops Cold War. It’s a semi-automatic submachine gun with a 3 round burst mechanism. However, players can convert the Tec 9 into a fully auto SMG using the Full Auto Repeater muzzle attachment. 

The weapon has a moderate fire rate for an SMG with a decent damage range.

Weapon background

The Tec 9 is the first-ever Tec 9 to feature in Call of Duty. We have seen similar SMGs in the past such as the MAC 10. However, the Tec 9 makes its COD debut in Black Ops Cold War.


  • Damage: 49
  • Rate of Fire: 451 RPM
  • Recoil: Moderate

We can see from the damage stats above, the Tec-9 deals 49 damage meaning it is a 4 shots to kill on average. The rate of fire is pretty normal for an SMG. However, the damage range combined with this rate of fire makes it one of the fastest killing SMGs in Cold War. The recoil is quite moderate with a very vertical pattern.

Let’s begin by looking at the greatest attachments for the Tec-9 in Black Ops Cold War.

Tec-9 Best Attachments

The best attachments for the Tec-9 in Black Ops Cold War are the:

  • Muzzle – Full Auto Repeater
  • 8.1″ Task Force Barrel
  • Field Agent Grip
  • Stanag 39 RND

The Full Auto Repeater turns the Tec-9 into a fully automatic SMG. The 8.1″ Task Force barrel gives you a well-needed boost in effective damage range. Finally, adding a grip will help stabilize recoil, especially after adding the full auto repeater.
