Warzone 2: Best Sakin MG38 Loadouts & Class Setup

After playing Warzone 2 for over 120 hours, I recommend the following loadouts for Sakin MG38.

The Sakin MG38 is a strong Light Machine Gun in COD Warzone 2.0, and you should know about the best loadouts for this weapon if you’re going to use it in Call of Duty. LMGs have always been strong weapons, but they are very hard to control. 

Key Takeaways
  • The first loadout for the Sakin MG38 actually focuses on increasing the weapon’s range and also improves the recoil. For equipment, use Shock Stick as tactical and Claymore as Lethal. On top of that, use Sentinel as your perk package.
  • As the long range is covered by the LMG, for secondary, use the X12 pistol, which works like a charm at close range.
  • The second loadout of Sakin MG38 is recommended for close range.
  • As for equipment, use Heartbeat Sensor as tactical and Semtex as Lethal. For perk packages, use Recon Package.
  • For a secondary weapon, we recommend you go for either the X13 Auto or the X12 pistol.

Sakin MG38 Range & Recoil Loadout

For Sakin, I recommend the following attachments:

  • Optic: XTEN ANGEL-40
  • Muzzle: POLARFIRE-S
  • Underbarrel: BRUEN WARRIOR GRIP
  • Improved Range
  • Better Stability
  • Better Recoil Control
  • Comparatively Slower TTK

My first loadout for the Sakin MG38 actually focuses on increasing the weapon’s range and also improves the recoil. The magazine size is already huge, and if you end up hitting your shots at long range, then you will have the upper hand even before the fight begins.


Now I will discuss the best tactical and lethal equipment for the 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 I’ve got the long-range covered, I will choose the X12 Pistol as my secondary weapon. It works like a charm for me 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 use the LMG at mid-range, as my loadout reduces most of the recoil.

Sakin MG38 Close Range Loadout

The Second Loadout (Screenshot Captured by eXputer)

For this loadout, I recommend the following attachments:

  • Muzzle: KASTOVIA DX90
  • Underbarrel: CRONEN WL55
  • Optic: S2-SIGMA-IV OPTIC
  • Rear Grip: BRUEN G305 GRIP
  • Faster TTK
  • Improved Mobility
  • Better hip fire firing
  • Limited Range
  • Bullet spread on long range

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.


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 my 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.

My Take On Sakin MG38 Loaodut

My Steam Profile

Sakin is a versatile LMG that can be tuned according to your usage. I personally like to use the weapon in close range combats as it never fails to impress me when it comes to crushing down multiple targets or taking the campers out.

The secondary weapon that I pair with the LMG 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.

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.

This concludes the guide about the best loadouts for Warzone 2.0 Best Sakin MG38 loadout. I entailed two different loadouts for two different play styles in complete detail. All of the attachments, perks, and equipment have been mentioned additionally. Now, I recommend you go through Asad Ahmed’s review on Warzone 2 and check out his in-depth analysis.
