ISO Hemlock Best Loadout

In our opinion, there are two different variations of loadout that you can go for while using ISO Hemlock. The first one is probably the All-rounder ISO Hemlock Loadout, which will be able to deal with enemies at all distances. Of course, you can’t expect to rush a building and down the whole squad while hip-firing with the ISO Hemlock. The gun may be hard-hitting, but it is quite slow. Therefore, it’s best to use the ISO Hemlock with a properly planned strategy.

Don’t get us wrong, when used properly; the ISO Hemlock is probably one of the Best ARs in the Warzone 2 Season Two right now. Infinity Ward has also released a few more weapons, such as the Kodachis and KV Broadside.

Nevertheless, with the ISO Hemlock, you can take down enemies anywhere from 20m to 80m easily. Although, it is important to have good and steady aim skills while using it. However, if you do get bothered by the recoil, then the following build can surely make your life easier. With the following loadout, the ISO Hemlock has the potential to become one of the Best Guns in WZ 2.0.

To start things off, it is best to review all the different attachments that you’ll be needing to create the meta ISO Hemlock loadout. Even though the game provides you with 9 different slots that can be altered with an attachment. However, every COD gamer knows that you can only use 5 Attachments for your weapon, especially in Battle Royale modes.

With that in mind, here are the 5 Attachments you need for your ISO Hemlock All-rounder Loadout. Of course, you can make some slight changes here and there according to your playstyle and preferences.


Muzzles are always an important attachment in every kind of weapon in Warzone 2. The Muzzle can help you to either suppress the fire sound, hide your flashes, or most importantly decrease the recoil. Hence, for the ISO Hemlock Loadout, the Sakin Tread-40 is one of the best muzzles to go for. 

It will help control both horizontal and vertical recoil, making it much easier to aim down and shoot targets at longer ranges. It does cost you a bit on your ADS and Aiming Stability, but it’s worth sacrificing with the overall decrease in recoil that you’ll be getting on the ISO.

Players can choose to switch out the Muzzle with the XTEN Havoc 90 if they don’t like the recoil pattern of the Sakin Tread-40. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a suppressed muzzle then the Gauge-9 Mono is a viable option to check out.


Next up, we have the Barrel attachment. In huge maps like Al Mazrah, Barrels are a must-have since they give you that extra bullet velocity and range. This allows you to get into fights with enemies far away. So for the ISO Hemlock loadout, the Fielder-T50 was an easy pick that added all the right ingredients to the mix. 

The Fielder-T50 will increase the damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control, and will also give you the edge to hip fire in sticky situations. Having a bigger barrel does come with the disadvantage of slower movement speed but you can always switch to your secondary weapon while you’re moving around the map.


Optics are always based on personal preference. You will always see people disagree on these when it comes to Assault Rifles. However, when it comes to the ISO Hemlock, the AIM OP-V4 has to be one of the best choices of Optic. The low-profile reflex sight with a red dot reticle looks clean and makes it easier for the player to shoot at all ranges.

Many players just haven’t felt that comfortable with the ISO Hemlock’s iron sight, which is why an optic becomes a necessity to have. Although, you could also go for an optic with a 3x or 4x zoom. However, having such optics will instantly put you at a disadvantage in fights that are fought with enemies within a 40m radius. 


The ISO Hemlock base weapon comes with a 30-rounds magazine like most ARs. If you have played Warzone 2 for quite a while now, then you’d know that 30 bullets just don’t cut it out, unless you have godlike aiming skills. Unfortunately, not all of us have that kind of skills; hence, it is a humbling decision to go for the 45-Round Mag attachment.

Having the attachment will obviously decrease your movement speed, ADS, and sprint-to-fire speed, but you will have those few extra shots in your magazine which might make the difference in a fight.


The final piece that completes the Best ISO Hemlock Loadout in Warzone Season 2 is the EDGE-47 GRIP. Underbarrels are not usually a common attachment nowadays. However, there’s no denying that these tiny attachments can significantly alter the recoil of a weapon. In the same manner, the EDGE-47 GRIP increases recoil stabilization along with the idle aiming stability of ISO Hemlock.

If you’re someone who doesn’t like to roll with Underbarrels, then you could also go for a Laser attachment. Attaching a laser will increase your weapon’s ADS and hip fire stability.

Secondary Weapon

ISO Hemlock is a hard-hitting weapon with a rather slower fire rate. Hence, players should try pairing the new Warzone Season 2 AR with a weapon that offers high movement speed and is a viable option for CQC. You could go for an SMG, although the best option is to opt for the X12 pistol.

Yes, the good old X12. It may not be the deadliest weapon in Warzone 2, but it offers a lot when used properly. With the X12, you’d be able to sprint for longer and have godlike movement speed. Not only that, but with the right attachments, you can also take down a few enemies on your own at close range. With that said, here are all the attachments you can apply on your X12 as a secondary to the ISO Hemlock.

  • Barrel: XRK LUC-9.
  • Laser: 1MW Pistol Laser.
  • Trigger Action: XRK TR9 Trigger.
  • Magazine: 33 Round Mag.
  • Rear Grip: Cronen LIMA-6.

With the 33-round mag, you can easily down enemies without having to reload (which is usually the major drawback of pistols). The big ammo clip also makes X12 a great option for modes other than Solo BR.

Without proper equipment teamed up with the ISO Hemlock, you won’t be able to reach its full potential. The use of some of the Equipment in Warzone 2 can make or break an entire play. If you see a whole squad camping or holding a house, simply throw a few stuns in there and rush in to get some free kills. With that said, here is the Lethal and Tactical Equipment you should try going for alongside the ISO Hemlock.

  • Tactical: Stun Grenade.
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade.

By far the most used and effective pair of equipment in Warzone 2. Even in Season 2, this pair is an easy choice to go for. Therefore, feel free to add these to your ISO Hemlock loadout before you queue up for your next game.

On the contrary, if you want to switch things up, then you could also go for Flash Grenades and Throwing Knife.

When it comes to Perks, personal preferences play a huge part. Despite that, there are a few perks that stand out amongst the rest and are always worth picking. So to conclude your ISO Hemlock loadout in Warzone Season 2, then make sure you have these ready to go in your setup.

  • Double Time (Base Perk 1): Allows the player to use Tactical Sprint for a longer period.
  • Battle Hardened (Base Perk 2): The player won’t get affected as much by enemy stun, flash, gas grenades, EMP, and shock sticks.
  • Fast Hands (Bonus Perk): Allows the player to switch weapons quickly and reload faster.
  • Quick Fix (Ultimate Perk): Faster health regeneration after plating up or killing an enemy.

ISO Hemlock Long-Range Loadout

There is no lack of combinations you can make with the attachments to come up with a great ISO Hemlock loadout. So to add another variation to your custom loadouts, it is worth knowing the ISO Hemlock long-range build. While playing BR modes, especially in maps like Al Mazrah, long-range ARs become a necessity. They offer a high fire rate as compared to Sniper Rifles, and can even deal significant damage at long ranges with the right attachments.

The ISO Hemlock Long-range loadout in Warzone 2.0 Season 2 solely focuses on enemies which are further away. Keeping that in mind, it’s important to know that you can not use it at close ranges or in fast-paced gun fights. Although, you could obviously go for a secondary weapon that compensates for that.

The ISO Hemlock long-range attachments are a bit different from the ones we listed in the previous build. Nevertheless, in comparison, this loadout will offer more at long ranges. So if you like fighting on the open fields of Al Mazrah or Ashika Island, then the ISO Hemlock long-range loadout is worth trying out.

Of course, you can make a few changes here and there according to your preference as well. With that said, here are the 5 attachments you should apply to the ISO Hemlock.


First things first, you have to get on a Muzzle on the ISO Hemlock ASAP. For the long-range build, it is best to go for the Gauge-9 Mono muzzle. It will add bullet velocity, recoil control, and recoil smoothness, along with sound suppression. The latter is key for strategic plays in Warzone 2.0. With sound suppression, you can easily take on enemies from afar without giving away your position on the map. 

Hence, the suppressed muzzle allows the players to have a safer side of not being too exposed. The Gauge-9 Mono does take down the ADS and aim walking speed, but that will be compensated in the next attachment.


So like we said earlier, the Laser will help bring back that lost ADS due to the muzzle. Everyone who’s been playing Warzone 2 since the start knows that nothing beats the FSS OLE-V Laser. It is by far the most used; the FSS OLE-V Laser will boost up your ADS, aiming stability, and sprint to fire speed.

The FSS OLE-V Laser does come with a slight disadvantage. Whenever you ADS, your laser will be visible to your enemies. However, this shouldn’t worry you because you won’t be using the ISO Hemlock at close range. 


A rather odd pick for the loadout, but it’s worth getting if you’re aiming to get the best out of your ISO Hemlock at long distances. The default ammunition attachment is good enough, but if you apply the 5.56 High-Velocity ammunition, the bullet velocity will significantly improve on your ISO Hemlock.


Just like the previous ISO Hemlock builds, it is essential to have the 45 Round magazine. The 30 round magazine just isn’t enough; it’s prone to running out really quickly, which could end you up in bad situations. Although, if you’re strictly a solo player then you could roll with a 30 Round magazine.

However, the 45 Round magazine is a must when playing Duos, Trios, or Quads. Having some extra bullets loaded up could potentially tip the fight in your favor. 


The last piece for your ISO Hemlock long-range build is none other than a zoomed-in optic. There are tons of options that players can choose from which range between 3x to 4x. Although, the Schlager 3.4x Optic seems to stand out amongst the rest. Other than the 3.4x magnified zoom the reticle is quite clean and easy to get used to. With the 3.4x magnified zoom, you can smoothly deal with enemies that are far away.

NOTE: Before moving on, if after testing the ISO Hemlock long-range build, you find the recoil too tough to control, then you could switch out the Muzzle for the Lockgrip Precision-40 Underbarrel. The underbarrel will help you control the recoil and have more stability during aiming down an enemy.

Secondary Weapon

Just like the first ISO Hemlock loadout weapon, you can yet again roll for another pistol as your secondary weapon. Players can also go for SMGs such as Vaznev-9K, Lachmann Sub, or the Fennec 45. However, going for an SMG would mean that you’ll have to drop one of your Base Perks for Overkill.

Nevertheless, going for the P890 as your secondary weapon is the optimal choice. The P890 is considered one of the Best Pistols in Warzone 2.0. It has a decent damage output and players with good trigger fingers can easily deal with multiple enemies with the P890 at hand. And if you add on some of the vital attachments then you’ll have a great secondary gun at hand to compliment your long-range ISO Hemlock.

Here are the best attachments to apply on your P890 loadout:

  • Laser: 1MW Pistol Laser.
  • TriggerAction: Bruen Express.
  • Magazine: 12 Round Mag.
  • Rear Grip: Bruen RSH-80 Grip.

Along with the ISO Hemlock and P890, it is important that you equip an effective pair of tactical and lethal gear. Gunfire won’t be enough to win you games in Warzone 2. You need a nicely built strategy that makes use of equipment like stuns, flashes, frags, C4s, etc.

With that said, to further enhance your ISO Hemlock long-range loadout, it is advised to get the following equipment:

  • Tactical: Flash Grenade.
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade.

Flash Grenade is always a good choice to go for in hybrid loadouts. You can also swap out the flash for the Stun if you’re more comfortable with that. Whereas the Frag Grenade is a must-have in most loadouts but Lethals like Semtex and Drill Charge are also viable options. Especially if you see yourself running into a lot of campers in the BR lobbies.

Before rounding up your ISO Hemlock long-range loadout for Warzone Season 2 you will also need to add some perks. Even though the perks that we mentioned in the previous loadout are good enough but we will still add a new variation so that you can try out something new. With so many perks to choose from, it can get a bit confusing at times. However, the following perks ought to be good enough for your ISO Hemlock long-range loadout.

  • Bomb Squad (Base Perk 1): Players will take less damage from explosives (Non-killstreak).
  • Battle Hardened (Base Perk 2): Stuns, Flash, EMP, Shock Sticks, and Gas Grenades will affect the player less.
  • Fast Hands (Bonus Perk): Ability to reload and switch weapons faster.
  • Ghost (Ultimate Perk): The player will be undetectable on enemy UAVs, heartbeat sensors, and portable radars.

Players who plan to use an SMG instead of the P890 can switch out Bomb Squad for the Overkill perk. Apart from that, you could also use Double Time instead of Bomb Squad. If Ghost isn’t a priority on your list then you could also opt for the Survivor Perk (especially if you play with teammates).

Final Words

So there you have it! Our complete take on the Best ISO Hemlock Loadout setup for Warzone 2.0 Season 2. The new AR is being loved by plenty of players around the globe. Even some famous streamers are running it on a daily basis. The ISO Hemlock is more of a mid to long-range weapon; therefore, it’s better to link it up with a quick secondary weapon such as a Pistol or an SMG.

If you’ve just started off your Warzone 2.0 journey with the launch of Season 2, then it’s important to know all the Tips and Tricks. Along with that, make sure to tweak your Controller, Audio, and Aim Assist Settings before you start matchmaking. On the topic of ARs, also check out the loadout for Lachmann-556 and M4.
