Assault rifles


The below TAQ-56 loadout features a long barrel and extended mags for dishing out maximum punishment at range. This TAQ-56 build is the Swiss Army Knife of assault rifles and is a great weapon to start with in Warzone 2.

  • Muzzle: Echoless-80 ↑1.05 →0.43
  • Barrel: 17.5” Tundra pro barrel ↑0.27 →0.12
  • Optic: Aim-OP V4 ↑-1.57 →-1.65
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56 ↑0.55 →0.17
  • Magazine: 60 round mag

Since the TAQ-56 is one of the first weapons to unlock, it’s quickly become one of the best loadouts for Warzone 2. Don’t just take our word for it. We surveyed, POC, the owner of Warzone Loadout, and here’s what he has to say about the TAQ-56.

“The TAQ-56 is the best gun in Warzone 2 right now. You can use it any way you want and it will outperform most of the other guns. Versatility is key in Warzone 2, as most of the players can buy only one primary custom weapon.”

Kastov 762

The Kastov 762 is the latest iteration of the AK assault rifle in Call of Duty. This Kastov 762 build from Warzone 2 streamer Rallied deals significant damage, as you would expect from an AK weapon.

  • Muzzle: Polarfire-S ↑0.90 →-0.32
  • Barrel: KAS-10 584mm barrel ↑0.50 →0.09
  • Optic: AIM OP-V4 ↑-3.00 →1.65
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple ↑0.00 →-0.40
  • Magazine: 40 round mag

The Polarfire-S muzzle and KAS-10 584mm barrel add bullet velocity and damage range while also smoothing recoil. The AIM OP-V4 optic serves its purpose, providing quick target acquisition with a no-frills red dot reticle.

STB 556

The STB 556 is one of the best assault rifles in Warzone 2 that features low recoil and a fast TTK. This STB 556 build from WarsZ, tuned for minimum recoil at long range, is a laser beam in Al Mazrah.

  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20 ↑-0.87 →0.98
  • Barrel: 16.5″ Bruen S901 ↑0.32 →0.26
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 ↑-0.86 →-0.22
  • Comb: Bruen TS-30
  • Magazine: 42 round mag

Battle rifles


The TAQ-V is part of a new class of weapons in Warzone 2 called battle rifles that, on average, have more damage but less mobility than their assault rifle counterparts. This TAQ-V build, created by WarsZ, hits harder than the TAQ-56 but with less recoil control.

  • Muzzle: Polarfire-S ↑-1.40 →1.00
  • Barrel: 18” Precision-6 barrel ↑0.50 →0.40
  • Rear Grip: FSS combat grip ↑-1.00 →-0.45
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56 ↑0.80 →0.40
  • Magazine: 50 round drum

The 18” Precision-6 barrel is tuned for recoil steadiness and damage range. The Polarfire-S barrel increases bullet velocity and tunes it towards maximum ADS speed. This TAQ-V setup is one of the best loadouts in Warzone 2 right now for squad play and engaging multiple enemies.


Fennec 45

The Fennec 45 is a low-recoil, fast-firing SMG that players might remember from the original Warzone. The below Fennec 45 build from Warzone 2 pro DiazBiffle melts at close-range. DiazBiffle uses this Fennec 45 setup as close-range support alongside a TAQ-56 assault rifle.

  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Stock: FTAC Locktight stock ↑-4.00 →-2.40
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90 ↑0.80 →-0.40
  • Rear Grip: Fennec rubber grip ↑-1.00 →-0.45
  • Magazine: Fennec mag 45

The 45 round extended mags are a must-have for any viable Fennec setup because of how fast the weapon can burn through a magazine. DiazBiffle prefers the VLK LZR 7MW laser, which improves the Fennec’s ADS and sprint-to-fire speed for maximum close-range effectiveness.

Lachmann Sub

The Lachmann Sub, reminiscent of the MP5 from Modern Warfare, is a well-rounded SMG that offers a little bit of everything. The below build, featured by Atlanta FaZe coach Crowder, is tuned for maximum damage and accuracy.

  • Barrel: FTAC M-SUB 12” ↑0.21 →-0.25
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90 ↑-0.59 →-0.14
  • Ammunition: 9mm Overpressured +P ↑0.16 →-5.81
  • Magazine: 40 round mag

Crowder uses the 9mm Overpressured +P rounds, which inflict more flinch at the cost of recoil control. Flinch can be an effective tool to win more 1v1 gunfights. Crowder recommends swapping the VLK LZR 7MW laser with a muzzle if the recoil on this Lachmann Sub build feels uncontrollable.



The RPK has become one of the best overall guns for Warzone 2 thanks to its devastating damage, low recoil, and large base magazine size. This RPK build from Rallied is tuned for ADS speed and recoil reduction.

  • Muzzle: Polarfire-S ↑0.68 →0.39
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Optic: AIM OP-V4 ↑-3.00 →-1.65
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple ↑0.00 →-0.40
  • Rear Grip: True-TAC grip ↑-1.00 →0.35

Rallied uses the True-TAC grip for increased ADS speed and the VX Pineapple underbarrel attachment for increased recoil steadiness. The RPK’s large base magazine means you can spend an attachment elsewhere, further improving this monster’s stats.


The RAAL is another LMG getting notoriety as one of the best loadouts for Warzone 2. FaZe Crowder featured this RAAL LMG class setup on his Twitter page, touting its insane recoil and bullet velocity.

  • Muzzle: Talon Sixteen ↑1.40 →1.00
  • Barrel: 21” EXF Rhino barrel ↑0.50 →0.40
  • Optic: AIM OP-V4
  • Underbarrel: SA side grip ↑0.80 →0.40
  • Ammunition: .338 mag high velocity ↑-0.70 →9.00

Crowder’s RAAL LMG build is tuned for maximum bullet velocity and recoil reduction to beam players at long range. Many weapon attachments on this RAAL LMG setup sacrifice mobility, so players should consider bringing an SMG or other high-mobility secondary weapon for quick rotations.


SP-X 80

Many Warzone 2 players agree that the SP-X 80 is one of the best-feeling sniper rifles in the game. The new Warzone 2 meta features 2-shot snipers, and the SP-X 80 can deliver follow-up shots with ease.

  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90 ↑-0.63 →0.90
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Stock: PVZ-890 TAC stock ↑-4.00 →-1.39
  • Rear Grip: Schlager match grip ↑-1.00 →-0.01
  • Ammunition: .300 high velocity ↑0.54 →3.77

Notable FaZe Clan sniper Dirty highlighted this SP-X 80 build on his YouTube channel, claiming it as the perfect aggressive sniper rifle for Warzone 2.0.

Like most long-range weapons, tune the SP-X 80 for bullet velocity and damage range to help secure more one-shot kills. Attachments like the Schlager Match Grip reduce ADS time, allowing Dirty to hit those nasty quick-scope shots.


The below MCPR-300 build, featured by content creator Metaphor, is tuned to increase ADS speed and bullet velocity.

  • Muzzle: FTAC Reaper ↑-1.40 →0.52
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Stock: FSS Merc stock ↑-4.00 →1.94
  • Rear Grip: Cronen RFX-300
  • Bolt: Cronen smooth bolt

The MCPR-300 is one of the best Warzone 2 loadouts for devastating armor at a distance. The MCPR-300’s high-damage profile and low bullet drop are why this weapon is so effective in Warzone 2. Combine the MCPR-300 with our best NVIDIA filters for Warzone 2 to help you see players across the map.

Marksman rifles


The EBR-14 is a semi-automatic marksman rifle that delivers standout damage with a quick rate of fire. The EBR-14 can’t one-shot kill a fully-plated enemy, but it can deliver quick follow-up shots and a surprising amount of DPS.

  • Muzzle: Husher-65 silencer ↑-1.40 →-1.00
  • Barrel: 22” Boremaster barrel ↑0.50 →0.40
  • Optic: Luca Bandera scope ↑-3.00 →-1.20
  • Rear Grip: FSS Gen.7 grip ↑-1.00 →0.45
  • Magazine: 20 round mag

According to the weapon tuning maestros at Warzone Loadout, the EBR-14 might be the best long-range option in Warzone 2. But the EBR’s high skill cap makes it more challenging to use than some of its full-auto counterparts.

SP-R 208

The SP-R 208 is a bolt-action marksman rifle that offers fast ADS speed and decent damage. FaZe Testyment thinks the below SP-R 208 class setup might be the best option in Warzone 2 for aggressive and close-range sniping.

  • Barrel: 23.5” Fluted R-67 ↑0.50 →0.40
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Optic: SP-X 80 6.6x ↑-3.00 →-0.73
  • Stock: ZRL T70 pad extension ↑-4.00 →2.40
  • Bolt: FSS ST87 bolt

Testyment tunes his best SP-R 208 Warzone 2 loadout for ADS speed and damage range, sacrificing recoil reduction in the process. The FSS OLE-V laser is the perfect attachment for long-range rifles because it offers ADS speed and aiming stability with no significant drawbacks.


Expedite 12

Shotguns get neglected in the current Warzone 2 meta, with many players disregarding the weapon type altogether. While they can be tricky to use, shotguns can be deadly at close range with the right playstyle.

  • Muzzle: 18.5” Battlemaster
  • Laser: Point-G3P 04
  • Stock: Resonance collapsed
  • Rear Grip: Schlager void grip
  • Bolt: Expedite L-Bolt

Pro tip

Shotguns are good loadouts with the right movement playstyle. Our best controller settings for Warzone 2 can give you the demon movement you need to dominate with shotguns.

The above Expedite 12 class setup by shotgun expert Goomie strikes a nice balance between fire rate and damage for one-shot potential. The Expedite 12 works best when aiming down sights, as the hip-fire spread of shotguns in Warzone 2 can sometimes be inconsistent.
