Best Assault Rifles

Assault Rifles are the go-to weapons for most players in Warzone 2.0. They are snappy, have manageable recoil compared to SMGs, and are deadly accurate. There are a few downsides, but those are easily compensated by slotting them into the right attachments. Regardless of the few cons, the pros of ARs are more than enough to make them stand out from the rest of the weapon types in the game. 

Kastov 762

Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0: Kastov-762 [Screenshot Captured by eXputer]
Veteran users of the AK-47 in past COD games have discovered a new favorite assault rifle in Warzone 2: the Kastov 762. This weapon is modeled after the AK-103. Nevertheless, putting together the optimal loadout for a Kastov 762 is not an easy process. You need to go no farther than the Kastov 762 if you are searching for an assault rifle that is effective at medium to long-range confrontations and can butcher your opponents.

The KAS-10 584MM Barrel and the ZLR Talon 5 Muzzle are upgrades that improve the weapon’s damage range, bullet velocity, and controllable recoil. However, they come at the expense of the walking speed and aim-down sight rate. Regarding the size of your weapon’s magazine, if you are fighting in Quads or Trios modes, it is in your best interest to utilize a 40 Round Mag, as this will allow you to eliminate numerous foes at the same time.

When it comes to inflicting damage, the Kastov 762 is one of the most powerful assault rifles in the game, and when you’re using it, you get the distinct impression that it’s one of the most powerful. The gun feels snappy, and the bullets are impactful, and your opponents who are just wearing two armor plates will actually experience that sensation as well.

If you want to offer yourself the greatest possible chance of winning, build a loadout that includes your preferred shotgun or submachine gun to go along with the Kastov 762.

Kastov-74u

We will not be making any significant adjustments to the kastov-74U since it already has fantastic basic stats. However, we will be concentrating on making the kastov-74U a little more powerful. A mobile assault rifle that functions very similarly to a submachine gun is known as the kastov-74U. Because of its huge damage range and its high mobility, the AR may genuinely be considered a jack of all trades.

There is a broad range of alternative approaches someone can take in order to create the ideal loadout for a Kastov-74U. You have the choice of employing this AR primarily as a close-quarters weapon (CQC), a weapon with a medium range, or a weapon with a long range. That only demonstrates the incredible versatility this firearm truly is in all aspects.

The Kastov-74U packs a significant amount of punch and, depending on the attachments, may be used for combat at medium to close ranges. It is also capable of delivering a great deal of harm. 

Because of the substantial damage it is capable of doing, and the AR has quite a bit of punch in its arsenal. It is possible for the weapon to transform into a monstrous force that cannot be defeated if the necessary attachments and class configurations are applied to it. Previously, the efficacy of the weapon was substantially diminished when used at long ranges; however, the developers have already addressed this problem, and it has been fixed.

M4

Attachments for Best BAS-P Loadouts in COD Warzone 2.0
M4 (Screenshot Captured by eXputer)

The M4 is widely considered to be one of the most effective assault weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. Assault rifles are essential for players to equip at all times, regardless of the range at which they are used. The M4 is most suited to meet all of your requirements.

This gun has less recoil than other guns, a rapid rate of fire, and a respectable range, making it the ideal gun for practically any combat engagement. On the other hand, in order to make it more effective, you will need to have the most effective loadout and attachments for the M4.

Increased Bullet Velocity, Damage Range, and Controlled Recoil are all benefits that come with the Hightower 20″ Barrel attachment. You can get shots from a distance with this barrel, allowing you to do significant damage to your foes. You are able to readily engage in battles at a greater distance if you have increased Bullet Velocity and Recoil Control.

Your opponent will fall to the ground more quickly in direct proportion to the rate at which the cannon shoots. On the other hand, there is a little drawback, which is that it slows your movements somewhat and reduces your aim-down sight speed, both of which are quite important in close-quarters combat.

When used together, the M4 and the Harbinger D20 give an excellent level of stability while also suppressing sound. As a result of the increase in both Bullet Velocity and Damage Range, combat at medium and long ranges becomes much more favorable.

Weapon Loadout

  • Barrel: Hightower 20” Barrel
  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
  • Underbarrel: FTac Ripper 56

Lachmann-556

Due to its enormous firepower and general status as one of the most well-balanced weapons in Warzone 2.0, the Lachmann-556 gained the notoriety of being the legendary meta-gun from Modern Warfare 2.

Because it offers excellent recoil control and accuracy, the 15.9-inch Lachmann RAPP BA barrel is highly recommended for use with the Lachmann-556. This combination enables you to strike targets that are farther away with more ease because it improves your ability to hit targets at longer distances.

This barrel not only improves the accuracy of your hip fire, but also raises the total damage output of the weapon and extends its effective range. Although it does make movement and control a little bit more difficult, the benefits far exceed the drawbacks in this scenario.

The VX Pineapple is a thick grip that improves the handle of a weapon, enabling you to retain a more comfortable aim on the adversary as you fight. The Harbinger D20 is a suppressor that will cut down on the noise made by your shot while simultaneously enhancing the damage done by your weapon. This attachment is particularly handy in long-range warfare since it allows you to locate your opponent from a distance and immediately begin firing shots at them.

Weapon Loadout

  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10
  • Optic: Corio RE-X Pro
  • Stock: FT Mobile stock
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
  • Perk Package: Weapon Specialist
  • Secondary: Lachmann Sub
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade / Tear Gas
  • Lethal: Claymore / Thermite

Best SMGs

SMGs are the preferred weapon type for players who like to run and gun in Warzone 2.0. These weapons have a crazy fast rate of fire, are effective when used in CQC from hipfire mode, and generally have high ADS than most weapons in the game. Even with a few downsides, some of the best SMG guns in Warzone 2.0 are still in the meta and will likely continue in the coming seasons as well.  

Lachmann Sub

Warzone 2.0 Best Loadouts: Lachmann Sub
The Lachmann Sub loadout [Screenshot Captured by eXputer]
The Lachmann Sub is a classic MP5 from earlier Call of Duty games that has remained the Meta gun throughout the series. That will play out in the same way in Warzone 2.0, as this SMG will continue to be a beast in one-on-one conflict.

The L38 falcon 226MM is going to be the barrel that we use for the Lachmann Sub. In a nutshell, it will let your character move faster while also improving the pace at which they can aim down their sights. This is of great assistance in achieving precision targeting in a short amount of time.

Lachmann Sub’s ability to regulate recoil is improved thanks to the L38 Falcon. However, the Lockshot KT 85 is designed to improve the control of the recoil, which ultimately results in the barrel’s nerfs being more stable.

In Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, the FSS Sharkfin 90 is the underbarrel that we have decided to use for the Lachmann Sub. The stability of the aiming position is improved as a result, and the sway of our gun is decreased.

The standard magazine that comes with the Lachmann Sub is much too limited in capacity and does not perform very well, particularly for an SMG in Call of Duty Warzone. Therefore, the 40-round magazine is the best choice for this gun in the game since it provides a more even distribution of ammunition over its use.

Weapon Loadout

  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226MM
  • Muzzle: LOCKSHOT KT 85
  • Underbarrel: FSS SHARKFIN 90
  • Magazine: 40 ROUND MAG
  • Rear Grip: LACHMANN TCG-10
  • Perk Package: Warden 
  • Secondary: P890 
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade 
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade

FSS Hurricane

COD Warzone 2.0 FFS Hurricane

The FSS Hurricane is a formidable submachine gun that has great damage and control figures. These are further boosted by a recoil design that is very smooth and easy to handle. 

After conducting a wide range of tests, we came to the conclusion that is installing the AVR-T90 Comp muzzle attachment results in a considerable reduction in the horizontal recoil. This is the single most significant improvement that can be achieved with a muzzle attachment.

Additionally, the FTAC Ripper 56 is an attachment that can be attached to this that further stabilizes the recoil of the SMG and greatly reduces hipfire spread. As a result, you will be able to use it more effectively in more difficult close-quarters combat situations as well as at medium range.

After then, the range of the FSS Hurricane was improved with the help of the FSS Cannonade 16″. In addition to this, it helps to control the growth of hipfire. With the installation of the massive Assault-60 Stock Factory, which extends the limits of recoil reduction, the FSS Hurricane’s recoil and aiming stability have been significantly improved.

Because the iron sight on the SMG is not very effective at hitting opponents when they are at their maximum range, you must get any Warzone 2 Optics that you like. The Cronen Mini Pro comes out on top as the best small sight for this scenario due to its effective performance.

Weapon Loadout

  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Barrel: FSS Cannonade 16”
  • Muzzle: AVR-790 Comp
  • Stock: Assault-60 Stock Factory
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro

BAS-P

Best BAS-P Loadouts & Class Setup in COD Warzone 2.0
Best BAS-P Loadout (Screenshot Captured by eXputer)

Due to the fact that its loadouts give high damage across a short to medium range, the BAS-P is one of the greatest submachine guns in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and may easily be mistaken for high-powered weapons. BAS-P is particularly adept at managing engagement from close and medium ranges. As a result, we will be using several attachments in an effort to achieve a higher degree of precision for this SMG.

The 10.5″ Bruen Typhon barrel is the most critical accessory for any SMG. The higher the velocity of the bullet that your gun fires, the shorter time it will take for the shot to hit the mark that you have in its sights.

When used at longer ranges, a gun fitted with an FSS Sharkfin 90 Underbarrel would often have more accuracy. The fact that there are no drawbacks to this weapon mod is, without a doubt, its finest feature of it. You will notice an increase in both the Aim Down Sight Speed and the Sprint To Fire Speed as a result of using the VLK LZR 7MW attachment. Additionally, your aiming stability will be enhanced to a greater degree.

The D37 grip will provide a noticeable boost in the shooter’s ability to regulate recoil. Nevertheless, this will result in a little decrease in the steadiness of your aiming. Without a shadow of a question, the BAS-P is a little powerhouse cannon that is capable of launching several bullets at foes at incredible rates while maintaining both your movement speed and your aim-down sight speed. 

Weapon Loadout

  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90 
  • Barrel: 10.5” Bruen Typhon 
  • Magazine: 50-Round Drum
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Rear Grip: D37 Grip

Fennec 45

Players of Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 often choose the Fennec 45 when they are searching for a reliable submachine gun. Players equip their guns with a variety of accessories in order to improve their accuracy while firing and targeting. The Fennec 45 is an SMG, and because of its quick-fire speed and low recoil, it gives players a significant advantage in practically every close-range conflict they engage in.

Hip fire is an established playstyle in FPS games fast rate of fire is achieved with the use of hip fire, albeit at the expense of precision. A weapon with a rapid-fire rate and minimal recoil is necessary. Because of its faster firing rate and reduced recoil, the Fennec 45 is considered to be one of the strongest small-caliber SMGs.

When firing at a higher rate, a player has to improve their aim since they squander the majority of their ammunition. Therefore, the slimline pro is one of the greatest optics that you can use since it allows you to make more effective use of your ammunition and accurately aim at your rivals. You are going to notice that your accuracy is really precise.

The level of damage that the Fennec Mag 45 deals with is the primary consideration that led to its selection. Hip shooting includes faster fire rates, but less accurate shots, resulting in a significant amount of wasted ammunition.

Weapon Loadout

  • Muzzle: XTEN RR-40
  • Barrel: ZLR 16.5” Ignition Barrel
  • Laser: 1MW Quick Fire Laser
  • Optics: Slimline Pro
  • Magazine: Fennec Mag 45
  • Secondary Weapon: STB 556
  • Tactical: Medical Syringe
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • 1st Perk: Overkill
  • 2nd Perk: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Hardline
  • Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix

Best LMGs

LMGs are good for mainly two reasons: providing suppression fire to teammates and shredding enemies to bits if all of your bullets hit them. That being said, LMGs are not for every task at hand, and not all players prefer using this weapon type. However, if you like running with LMGs in the game, then we have listed the best guns in Warzone 2.0 that will get you going.  

RAAL MG

Warzone 2.0 BEST Loadouts: RAAL MG 3
The RAAL MG Loadout [Image Captured by eXputer]
It is common for players to hope that they will have LMG on their squad when they compete, but it is not enough to merely have the machine gun equipped for them to be victorious. In spite of the fact that the Raal MG is considered to be a light machine gun, possessing the appropriate loadout will be all that is required for the overwhelming bulk of online game modes.

If you have the best loadout, it is even possible to have zero recoil, which enables you to play aggressively without causing them to run in response to your shots. With enough training, a Raal MG death could be accomplished with only two rounds if the player is skilled enough.

You will need to hit level 25 before you can access the Raal MG. As soon as you reach this level, the LMG will be unlocked for your use, and you’ll be able to begin adding attachments to your loadout.

The ability to carry a second primary weapon is the major advantage of equipping a light machine gun (LMG) such as the RAAL MG. However, there are other advantages as well. In addition, the speed with which one may swap weapons is equally as significant as that of one’s weapon in terms of its ability to reload swiftly. When playing Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, you should be mindful that close combat may prevent you from carrying out your strategies; if this is the case, you should focus on engaging in engagements at a greater distance.

Weapon Loadout

  • Muzzle: Cronen DM338

556 Icarus

556 Icarus COD Warzone 2.0

The 556 Icarus is powerful and is a fantastic option for eliminating adversaries when engaged in combat. In spite of the fact that it is not the greatest-ranking gun, it is adaptable enough to meet a variety of needs and robust enough to win battles. It’s hard to tell the difference between this and HCR 56.

On the other hand, compared to it, it is better in a number of significant areas. Because it has the smallest hipfire bullet dispersion of any light machine gun, it is a great option for use at close ranges. This is one of the reasons why it is called a submachine gun.

The 556 Icarus is a reliable weapon that may be used in any circumstance. You can rely on it completely every time. The weapon’s lighter body and quicker firing rate contribute to a recoil that is slightly more evident than that of other similar weapons.

On the other hand, this is something that may be solved by the inclusion of attachments. After undergoing a few minor modifications, the Icarus 556 now delivers all that one might want from a light machine gun. With the possible exception of the range between 40 and 50 meters, the Time-to-Kill speed of the ICARUS 556 is slightly faster than that of most guns in its class. The new ADS time is somewhat better than the old one by a few hundredths of a second.

Sakin MG38

Sakin MG38

If you plan on using the Sakin MG38 in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, you should familiarise yourself with the optimal loadouts. It is the purpose of the FTAC Condor stock to dampen the weapon’s recoil in order to make the Sakin MG38 more solid while firing at close range. At close range, the LMG’s recoil may cause you to miss a significant number of bullets, despite the weapon’s enormous capacity.

In addition to helping the Kastovia DX90 muzzle lessen the weapon’s recoil, it will also offer an additional layer of sound suppression. You can play Warzone 2.0 more stealthily if you reap the benefits of this and utilize it to your advantage.

The recoil stability that the CRONEN WL55 attachment provides is the primary benefit that it offers. When engaging in close-quarters combat within the game, it will be to your advantage to have as little recoil as is physically possible.

The S2-SIGMA-IV Optic does not grant any particularly significant buffs; however, the only possible explanation we use is so that we can get more accurate bullets at close range. When using the LMG, you will rely on hipfire the majority of the time; however, if you need to aim precisely, you can use the scope.

Weapon Loadout

  • Stock: FTAC CONDOR STOCK
  • Muzzle: KASTOVIA DX90

Best Shotguns

Shotguns are always excellent and do splash damage and bust brains out of enemies at point-blank range. In tight corridors, inside houses, and places, where you can narrow down your opponent easily, are the sweet spots where shotguns shine big time. We have listed the 2 best shotguns in Warzone 2.0 guide as they seem to be the preferred choice of guns from this class for most players, including us. 

Lockwood 300

In Warzone 2, using a shotgun is a very difficult task. It is essential that you create the loadout with extreme caution and focus, and you need to be aware of precisely when and how to utilize it. The majority of the power, mobility, and precision of the Lockwood 300 are actually built into the weapon itself, which is a fortunate development. Having said that, there are a few aspects that may need some minor adjustments.

There is widespread consensus among gamers that the Lockwood 300 is the best shotgun that can be acquired right now. Nonetheless, this will largely depend on the class configuration and accessories that you select to utilize, as these are the elements that will influence the effectiveness of the firearm.

When utilizing the Matuzek 812 Barrel, both the accuracy of the shotgun as well as its range are enhanced. This is due to the wide range of the barrel, which is much longer than standard barrels. The concept that it renders handling the firearm rather more challenging is not enough to negate the idea that the compromise is more than worthwhile.

Because it improves the gun’s accuracy and handling without adding any visible downsides, the VLK LZR 7MW laser is an excellent attachment to use in conjunction with the Lockwood 300 and will cause your ADS to increase as a result of its installation.

Unfortunately, despite these minor enhancements, the weapon’s handling and recoil control have both seen a little decline as a result of these changes.

Weapon Loadout

  • Muzzle: XTEN V2.0 Choke
  • Barrel: Matuzek 812 Barrel
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW

Expedite 12

COD Warzone 2.0 Best Expedite 12 Loadout
Expedite 12 Loadout [Screenshot Grab: eXputer]
In Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, one of the shotguns that can be unlocked rather quickly is the Expedite 12. The fact that a single strike from the weapon may penetrate through and kill an enemy lends credence to the claim that it has godlike capabilities at CQC.

Expedite 12 has rather respectable fundamental stats, including strong handling skills and a mag with a big capacity for its ammunition. You won’t have any trouble learning how to use shotguns with this weapon, making Expedite 12 an excellent choice for anybody looking to improve their shotgun skills.

The bullet spread is the sole element that has to be accounted for with Expedite 12 since it is the primary cause of the weapon’s decreased accuracy. Because employing the attachment would boost the weapon’s damage by lowering the firing spread, we will utilize the Bryson Choke to circumvent this weakness in the design of the weapon.

Your movement speed will increase thanks to Resonance Stock Collapsed. When you have had the attachment on, you have the ability to charge foes and play a more attacking strategy.

Your hip-fire accuracy will substantially improve thanks to the VLK LZR 7MW laser, and it will also assist you in more effectively tracking your opponents. At a range that is near to being considered average, where you could additionally be required to make use of an ADS, the laser sight is an exceptionally solid option.

Weapon Loadout

  • Muzzle: Bryson Choke
  • Stock: Resonance Stock Collapsed
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Bolt: Expedite L-Bolt
  • Laser: Schlager ULO-66 Laser

Best Snipers

Quick scoping and landing satisfying headshots are the go-to playstyle of sniper rifles. Not all players pick this weapon type as it requires them to become a good aim first. However, if you’re a master at FPS games, then you will surely love playing with sniper rifles. If not, then you will not be making enough kills with this weapon type, even if you equip the best guns in Warzone 2.0.  

Signal 50

COD Warzone 2.0 best Snipers Signal 50

It is quite possible that the Signal 50 will be the new benchmark in terms of how snipers are used. Because it has the quickest rate of fire, it should be capable of eliminating enemies before they take cover. This will give it the upper hand in the fight.

The damage is moderate, and the kickback is not too difficult to deal with. It is a tremendously skilled sniper that has the ability to kill its enemies with two shots effortlessly. If you have your eyes set on playing as a sniper class, the Signal 50 is the best option you have at your disposal.

In Warzone 2.0, players get access to a variety of weaponry from the beginning of the game, including the Signal 50. If you pick the right loadout and class combo, you have the ability to make Signal 50 incredibly strong. Because it has the fastest fire rate and the lowest amount of backlash, the sniper rifle in consideration has the shortest time-to-kill of any other weapon in its class. 

Even while each bullet may only provide a very small amount of damage, it will take you the same number of rounds to eliminate an enemy as it takes for the other shooters in the match.

Victus XMR

Best Sniper Victus XMR
Warzone 2.0 Victus XMR – [Image credit: eXputer]
The Victus XMR is an excellent indicator of a firearm that satisfies the criteria for long-range warfare and is what snipers are supposed to perform.  Because of the tremendous projectile speed, all you need to do to hit your mark is point your weapon and shoot it, irrespective of how far away you are. You have lost some of your nimbleness, but you are still able to perform rather effectively in confined spaces due to your dexterity.

Because of Aim Down Sight’s ability to function properly, one shouldn’t have to be too worried regarding the ability to hit your target accurately at medium to long distances. Because of the aggregation of these favorable elements, it is an option that is practicable.

The Victus XMR has a reasonably high bullet velocity in addition to its impressively high power output. It possesses one of the lowest projectile fall ratios, which enables it to aim effectively from a significant distance. Because it is a bolt-action sniper rifle, its firing rate is much slower than that of other types of rifles. It has an outstanding movement speed, but it isn’t the best, and for the power it produces, it’s in the middle of the pack.

The substantial recoil makes it very challenging to fire a subsequent accurate shot, which is necessary to put an end to the threat posed by the opponent. The rate of fire is rather sluggish, so if you overlook a shot by mistake, your best chance is to switch guns and keep firing. If you are successful in doing so, you will score more kills.

MCPR-300

Loadout of MCPR 300 in the Game
The MCPR-300 Loadout [Image Captured by us]
The MCPR 300 has the longest damage range and the quickest projectile speed of any other sniper rifle. It’s going to be of great assistance in killing off enemies that are towards the end of their health.

A key alteration that had a severe influence on all bolt-action sniper rifles was the removal of the capability to eliminate an enemy with a single shot. This ability had previously been possible. It is going to be challenging to utilize a sniper against an adversary that has an assault rifle with a fast time to kill (TTK).

One ought to only use the sniper if you are safely concealed or if there is a big gap between you and the opponent. The reason is that the MCPR has a sluggish shooting frequency and a huge percentage of recoil. You are likely to be killed if you use the sniper rifle and are unable to score a kill successfully.

This long-range sniper rifle offers some of the best and most adaptable loadouts and class combinations that are currently available. Your desired playstyle and the many attachment choices may easily be adapted. Both of these things are easily changeable.

Best Marksman Rifles

Marksman Rifles are a hybrid between Sniper Rifles and ARs. They have a much faster rate of fire than sniper rifles and higher damage than ARs. 

SP-R 208

In Warzone 2.0, the SPR-208 is widely considered to be one of the most accurate Marksman Rifles. The Polarfire-S muzzle adapter improves the damage range and bullet velocity of the SPR-208, resulting in a shorter amount of time needed to kill an opponent. It also increases the weapon’s recoil stability, which in turn greatly enhances the weapon’s precision and efficacy at long range.

There is no way for us to have a long-range weapon without a suitable scope, and the SP-X 80 6.6X is supposed to be the one that is going to be the greatest option for the task. This scope provides us with a significant increase in both accuracy and range, but at the expense of somewhat decreased ADS.

Our ADS’ speed and stability are both improved thanks to the FSS Ole-V laser, and we also benefit from increased targeting stability. It makes the SPR-208 simpler to handle, and it restores the majority of the mobility that we had lost due to the SP-X 80 scope.

Because the SPR-208’s poor fire rate is one of its weaker features, the FSS ST87 Bolt is an excellent accessory to connect to it. Your rechambering speed will increase as a result of using this weapon mod.

In conclusion, the only purpose of the ZRL T70 Pad Extension main stock attachment is to enhance the maneuverability of the SPR-208. The ZRL T70 Pad Extension addresses the need for mobility in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, which is an important component of the game. It not only makes the SPR-208 lot more responsive but also makes it the ideal weapon to take about when you are on the go.

In Warzone 2.0, the Lockwood MK2 is a Marksman Rifle that has a medium range. This firearm may be employed as a sort of rifle that kills with a single shot and is excellent at both close and medium ranges. It also has a high rate of fire. You will be able to utilize the Rifle effectively at long ranges if you equip it with the greatest attachments and perks that are available for the Lockwood MK2 Best Loadout.

The 25-inch Buffalo Barrel attachment is your best pick if you would like to increase the bullet speed, damage, walk speed, and accuracy of your hip fire. There is no other alternative that comes close.

The FTAC Dreadnought Muzzle attachment offers a perfectly smooth recoiling as well as significantly increased velocity. Additionally, it provides a considerable improvement to the rate of fire of your Lockwood MK2’s projectiles. When it relates to owning the very effective Lockwood Mk2 attachments, having an Accu-Shot 5MW Laser is of the utmost importance. It will assist in targeting enemies with the highest possible degree of precision.

When taking into consideration targets at close range, the iron sights that come standard with the Lockwood Mk2 are more than adequate. You will want an SZ Bullseye optic at the extended ranges that you are shooting at. We suggest that you install a Lockwood Bullseye Stock to your MK2 weapon so that you may have a greater degree of control over the speed of the rifle as well as its overall control.

One of the finest firearms in Warzone 2 that you acquire initially is the FTAC Recon. It is a firearm designed specifically for players that have a high level of precision. In spite of the fact that SMGs are presently rather common in the game, if you know how to make effective use of the FTAC Recon, you will have an advantage over the competition.

Due to the fact that each round dealt a significant amount of damage, the weapon had a significant amount of recoil. Even though Warzone 2 was only just made available to gamers, many of them are still unaware of the full capability of each weapon. As a result, there are certain configuration setups for some weapons that enable you to realize their full power by providing you with a very powerful weapon.

Gamers do not use the FTAC Recon very often since it is challenging to operate and has a large recoil, which is also one of the factors that it is stable. Gamers who are used to rushing tactics are unable to utilize this weapon effectively since, after shooting a few rounds, it will cause a significant shift in the player’s line of sight.

The enormous firepower of Lachmann-762, along with its one-shot head kill, was the primary draw for gamers to acquire and utilize it. There are a lot of different attachments available for the Lachmann-762 class configuration, and you may pick and choose which ones you want to use to improve certain aspects of the gun. It’s possible that the handling of the weapon, as well as its recoil and mobility, are among the attributes. You could believe that picking a certain attachment and going with it would be a simple solution, but doing so would not be the best course of action to take.

It has the opportunity to undergo some necessary buffs and nerfs in order to develop into the ultimate long-range weapon. The Lachmann-762 has the ability to fire in either a semi-automatic or an automatic mode, and each mode may be selected independently. When using this firearm, there are certain issues with the management of the recoil that must be dealt with.

However, these issues are easily remedied by increasing the efficiency of the rifle by utilizing the appropriate attachments. If you are skilled at the first-person shooter (FPS) shooting or rapid scoping, you have the possibility of causing the brains of your opponents by landing headshots.
