When Treyarch released the Revolution DLC for Black Ops 2 everyone was a bit surprised at the inclusion of a new weapon. People worried that it’d give players that purchase DLC an upper hand by having more powerful weapons. And they were right, for a short while. But the Peacekeeper has since been given a decrease in stats and is now a well-balanced SMG that fits right in. Today we’ll be going over our loadout recommendation for this gun.
Here’s the full class setup:
The Peacekeeper is a very versatile SMG. It has the fast fire rate and mobility of an SMG but often has range that is more comparable to that of an assault rifle. This makes it a very useful gun. It deals pretty decent damage, has great accuracy, and can take out targets even on long stretches. Overall, it’s one of our favorite guns in the game.
While it can shoot pretty far we still recommend trying to keep your firefights to short or medium ranges. This gun operates better at those distances. The stock sights are pretty good on this gun, too.
Recommended Attachments: Fore Grip, Reflex Sight
The Fore Grip is great to have on any weapon that has even just a little bounce to it. Using it with the Peacekeeper just steadies the gun out a bit more making it easier to attack enemies even at range and hit them with nearly every bullet. The Reflex Sight adds to the total accuracy and range of this gun and just makes it a little bit easier to aim at enemies, too. The stock sights on this gun are pretty decent but the Reflex (formerly known as red-dot) is great for being able to pinpoint targets.

The B23R is always a great pistol to throw on for your secondary slot. It’s powerful, fast, and great for cleaning up kills or saving yourself when you get into tight spots such as when you run out of ammo on the Peacekeeper. Pull it out, pop off a few shots, and as long as you’re within close proximity of your enemy, you’re almost guaranteed to get the kill.
Tier 1 – Lightweight & Hardline (with Perk 1 Greed Wildcard on) – Lightweight is great for getting around the map faster making it easier to flank foes or get to objectives fast. Hardline is used to help build up scorestreaks faster.
Tier 2 – Toughness. When you’re shooting enemies at medium to long range, their bullets hitting you can make your sights bounce around a bit. Toughness counters this and makes you more steady even when you’re getting hit.
Tier 3 – Dexterity. Because this class is designed for the player that likes to move around a lot, you’ll be sprinting to and from different locations often. Sometimes you can get caught off guard by a stray enemy popping up from around a corner. Being able to aim down your sights faster after a full-on sprint is very handy in these situations.
Lethal – Frag Grenade.
Tactical – None.
Tier 1 – UAV. This is always useful. Makes it easy to find enemies whether you’re chasing them down or they’re coming to you, it’s always great to have eyes on them.
Tier 2 – Lightning Strike. This scorestreak is fast and powerful. It works exceptionally well in objective-based games like CTF where you’ll know that enemies will be in hotspots going toward the objective. Pick your 3 target locations and blast your foes away.
Tier 3 – Stealth Chopper. This is a decent scorestreak. It doesn’t always get a ton of kills but it can keep your enemies occupied with trying to find it or, at the very least, provide cover fire to take out their shields a bit.
