Being a Marksman Rifle, the LMS is suitable for situations involving mid to long-range combat. In order to maximize its efficacy at such ranges, I have put together a list of the best perks and equipment.

The following constitute the best LM-S loadout in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0:

  • Perk Package: Vanguard (Unlocks at Level 1)
  • Secondary Weapon: FSS Hurricane or Lachmann Sub or Expedite 12
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex (Unlocks at Level 20)
  • Tactical Equipment: Spotter Scope (Unlocks at Level 1) or Shock Stick (Unlocks at Level 1)

Secondary Weapon

The LM-S is a very good weapon for mid to long ranges if customized according to the best LM-S loadout in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0. Nevertheless, the LM-S lags a lot behind other weapons and items for encounters happening at close range.

Consequently, when choosing the secondary weapon, it should be ensured that it has been made for close-range encounters, essentially providing a very well-rounded build for all encounters in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0.

The FSS Hurricane

The go-to option for the secondary weapon for the best LM-S loadout is the FSS Hurricane. It is, by far, one of the best, if not the best, SMG in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0.

  • The FSS Hurricane does a very good job of compensating for the shortcomings of the LM-S when the player has to face encounters at close range.
  • In addition to that, the FSS Hurricane boasts a considerably high level of accuracy.
  • Thus, it will help you land the killing blow on enemies that you might not be able to take down with the LM-S.

The Lachmann Sub

In a Battle Royale setting as that of Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0, having an SMG for close to mid-range encounters is absolutely key to winning any given match.

  • There are plenty of SMGs in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0, but very few even come close to the Lachmann Sub or the FSS Hurricane.
  • Termed the MP5 of Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0, the Lachmann Sub is an absolutely excellent choice for obliterating enemies at close range.

The Expedite 12

The last option for the secondary weapon is the Expedite 12 shotgun for the best LM-S loadout. Not only that, the Expedite 12 is one of the best Shotguns in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0.

  • The Expedite 12 essentially allows you to obliterate enemies in one shot at close range.
  • This is a much-required feat, especially for long-range weapons like the LM-S.

Lethal Equipment

For the Lethal Equipment slot, the Semtex is one of the best options for the best LM-S loadout. You can stick the Semtex onto enemies, which essentially functions as a live grenade in itself. Not only that, it is better than the Frag Grenade in that it allows for more precision and has more chances of securing a kill. 

Tactical Equipment

For the Tactical Equipment slot, the Shock Stick paired with the Semtex is a very good option. The Shock Stick, as the name indicates, has the ability to stick to surfaces. In addition to that, it can also be used to electrocute enemies. Moreover, it also serves to destroy enemy equipment, which can prove to be a winning card for you in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0.

  • As an alternative, I recommend the Spotter Scope for the Tactical Equipment in the best LM-S loadout.
  • The Spotter Scope essentially helps you in providing reconnaissance.
  • It helps you to spot and then mark your enemies from a distance. 

My Verdict On LM-S

My Steam Profile

When it comes to mid and long-range engagement I consider the LM-S a pretty decent option. Unlike the bolt-action sniper rifle, I can take follow-up shots quickly with the firearm which helps me to take down my opponents efficiently even if I miss a few shots.

The game also features weapon tuning so that you can customize each attachment to your liking. Thus, you should try different attachments alongside this weapon to see which one suits the most.
