The Razorback is yet another one of the usable submachine guns in Black Ops 3‘s online multiplayer. This SMG has the best accuracy in its class, has decent range, a moderate firing rate, and relatively low damage output. All in all, it’s an excellent weapon, perhaps even one of the best guns in the game, period.

We’re not entirely sure exactly what was changed on the gun just yet, but we’ll keep everyone posted about it. Full details will be posted right here whenever they’re available.

Recommended Weapon Setup
Depending on your personal play style and how you feel about the Razorback, you may want to add some attachments to the gun. Because this is a submachine gun, which is usually a weapon of choice for rushing, we would recommend using attachments like Long Barrel and Extended Mags.
Long Barrel extends the effective range of the SMG making falloff damage a bit less of an issue when facing opponents at medium distances. Extended Mags, on the other hand, allows you to keep firing for longer periods of time thanks to additional bullets. Both come extremely handy.
If you prefer to flank your enemies and catch them off guard with surprise attacks you may want to consider throwing on the Suppressor attachment which helps keep your character off enemy radar when firing and also makes it more difficult for enemies to locate you based on firing sounds.
The Razorback already has very low recoil compared to most other submachine guns in Black Ops 3. This makes attachments such as the Grip completely unnecessary. Even a newcomer to Call of Duty can easily manage the recoil on this SMG so there’s no need to waste an attachment slot on Grip.
