  • Optic: XTEN ANGEL-40
  • Muzzle: POLARFIRE-S
  • Underbarrel: BRUEN WARRIOR GRIP


It is advised that you use an optic for your LMG if you’re going to create a long-range loadout. Having an optic really helps you aim at targets moving at long range. And our choice of optic for the Sakin MG38 in our best loadout is the XTEN Angel 40 in Call of Duty Warzone 2.0. The red reticle is preferable to other reticles to use in an optic, and the XTEN even has precision sight, which is an added bonus.


The FTAC Grimline Laser is our choice for the laser attachment on the Sakin MG38. It helps stabilize your hip fire with the LMG as it increases both the hip recoil control and the hip fire accuracy of the weapon. It means that you can expect to hit more shots when you are using the weapon without aiming at close-range.

Lastly, the laser also increases your sprint-to-fire speed. The speed at which you go from sprinting to aiming or firing has been enhanced with this attachment.


We use the Bruen Silver Series BA as our barrel for the weapon because it provides a huge buff to your long-range play style at the cost of movement speed. However, its buffs include decreasing the recoil of the LMG whilst increasing the bullet velocity and damage range. All of these buffs stack up and increase the effectiveness of the Sakin MG38 as a long-range weapon.


Polarfire-S is the best muzzle you can use for the Sakin MG38 in this loadout in Call of Duty Warzone 2.0. It even adds the element of stealth to your play style as the Polarfire helps in sound suppression. In addition to that, it increases the bullet velocity and the damage range, just like the Bruen Silver Series BA. The recoil of Sakin MG38 is also smoothened by using Polarfire-S as your muzzle.


The Bruen Warrior Grip buffs both the recoil and the hip fire of the Sakin MG38. Basically, it increases the hip fire accuracy and the hip fire control of our weapon. Additionally, it also stabilizes the overall recoil of the LMG. All of our attachments so far focus on reducing the recoil of the Sakin MG38 so that you can efficiently use the weapon at long range. These attachments will help you to hit precise shots with the weapon.


Now we will discuss the best tactical and lethal equipment for our first best loadout of Sakin Mg38 in COD Warzone 2.0. Using the right tactical and lethal equipment can really help you in your battles in the game.

Shock stick should be your tactical equipment in the first loadout. It is a really handy item in the game additionally. It sticks to surfaces and enemies. When it electrocutes opponents, they get stunned, giving you an opportunity to finish the job with the LMG. Additionally, the shock stick also destroys enemy equipment and makes vehicles go haywire. Basically, it has a lot of uses as a tactical piece of equipment.

Use claymore as your lethal equipment in the first loadout. It is a handy tool that acts as a proximity mine additionally. You can use it to trap opponents or just place it around the area where you’d want to camp to keep the area more secure. Used strategically, this item can gravely damage your opponent, and you can follow up with your LMG as well.

Perks Package

The perks package that you should go for is the Sentinel perks package in the first loadout. Battle Hardened is a really useful base perk that decreases the effects of almost every type of enemy equipment on you. It even makes you immune to snapshot grenades so that you become unstoppable while using the LMG. 

Bomb Squad allows you to pick up a live grenade, but it resets the timer on the grenade so that you have a better chance of throwing it back precisely. Cold Blooded helps you to remain hidden from enemies so that you can approach opponents with stealth. Overclock allows you to store an extra field upgrade charge.

Secondary Weapon

Since we’ve got our long-range covered, we will choose the X12 Pistol as our secondary weapon. It works like a charm at close range and is one of the most versatile secondary weapons in the game. However, the damage output is low, but that can be fixed with the right attachments additionally. You can also utilize the LMG at close range as well as our loadout reduces most of the recoil.

Sakin MG38 Close Range Loadout 

The second loadout aims to strengthen the weapon at close range, but it also adds a little bit of long-range stability to the weapon. However, the main focus is short-range. This loadout will make the Sakin 38 one of the best close-range LMGs in COD Warzone 2.0.

The Second Loadout (Screenshot Captured by eXputer)
  • Muzzle: KASTOVIA DX90
    • Underbarrel: CRONEN WL55
    • Optic: S2-SIGMA-IV OPTIC
    • Rear Grip: BRUEN G305 GRIP


The FTAC Condor stock aims to decrease the recoil of the weapon so that the Sakin MG38 remains more stable at close range. LMGs have a huge capacity, but the recoil can make you miss a lot of shots at close range. That is why we will use those attachments, which decrease the recoil of the weapon additionally.


The Kastovia muzzle will not only reduce the recoil but also adds sound suppression to your weapon. You can use that to your advantage and play with more stealth in the game. Additionally, it also increases the bullet velocity. All of these factors are useful in close-quarters combat.


The underbarrel that we will use for our best Sakin MG38 loadout in Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 is the Cronen WL55. The main buff that this attachment gives to our weapon is, again, recoil stability. Having as low recoil as possible will be advantageous during close-quarters combat in the game. Additionally, your aim will remain steady both while walking and staying idle using the attachment.


There are no huge buffs given by the Sigma Optic, but the only reason we use it is to get more precise shots at close-range. Most of the time, you’ll depend on hipfire using the LMG, but when you have to aim precisely, then you can utilize the scope.


When you get hit by bullets in Warzone 2.0, your character flinches for a moment or gets stopped. However, using the Bruen G305 grip on your Sakin MG38 will provide you with flinch resistance in the game. That is very useful in close-quarters combat.


Loadouts are not complete without equipment that you can customize to your liking. There are two types of equipment that include tactical and lethal equipment.

Heartbeat sensor should be your choice for the tactical equipment in the second loadout. As you’ll be fighting in close quarters most of the time, it will be helpful to know the location of your enemies. The heartbeat sensor will give you a rough idea of the location of enemies, if there are any, in the surroundings.

Semtex is probably the best choice for lethal equipment in our second loadout of Sakin MG38 in COD Warzone 2.0. It is a sticky grenade that explodes to deal massive damage to enemies. You can stick it to both surfaces and opponents if you’re good with your aim. Semtex can easily finish off a wounded opponent additionally.

Perks Package

The Recon perks package is the one that you should go for in the second loadout. Double Time is a really useful perk that doubles your tactical sprint duration in addition to increasing the crouch movement speed by 30%. That is very useful in escaping battles if you end up gravely wounded. The tracker is useful for tracking down enemies in the game additionally.

Focus helps increase your flinch resistance so that you can spam your LMG at close-range without any interruption. Birds Eye is another useful perk in finding the enemy’s location. Basically, this perks package improves your close-quarters combat and expects you to play aggressively with the LMG.

Secondary Weapon

The secondary weapon that you should go for is either the X13 Auto or the X12 pistol. Both are great and get the job done. If you end up running out of ammo for your LMG, then you can switch to the pistol to finish the job. Both of these pistols work well, and it honestly comes down to personal preference here.


Call of Duty finally brings back its battle royale mode known as Warzone 2.0, which is a much more revamped version of the original Warzone. The core formula of the game is still the same, where 150 players battle it out until the last man standing wins the match.

However, the addition of a new map, weapons, and loadouts has really made the overall experience feel unique. It is still a fun game to play, especially with friends. And Warzone 2.0 is definitely one of the best multiplayer games currently available to play.
