Warzone 2 Best SO-14 Loadout
The SO-14 battle rifle is one of the guns which you can easily unlock at the start of the game. In order to unlock the gun, you need to progress the EBR-14 to level 12. The EBR-14 is also the first gun that is unlocked in the Warzone 2 Ordinance weapon platform. As it is the starting gun, you can begin leveling up the EBR-14 to unlock the SO-14.
The main issue with the SO-14 loadout is controllability, as it is a long-range battle rifle. So, our SO-14 loadout will focus on increasing the recoil stability with aim down sight speed. The loadout also includes attachments for increasing the damage of the gun over a longer range. It is a strong asset to be used in short to mid-range fights if you do not have an SMG.
The attachments in the loadout will fill the area of controllability in the gun, which it lacks. Following are the attachments:
- Muzzle: Polarfire-S (Unlocks at Lachmann-762 Level 5)
- Laser sight: FSS OLE V laser (Unlocks at EBR-14 Level 14)
- Under barrel: Commando Foregrip (Unlocks at BAS-P Level 8)
- Magazine: 50-Round Drum (Unlocks at TAQ-V Level 20)
- Stock: FTAC RTP-40 Stock (Acquired through Dust Devil or Longball blueprint) (ADS and aiming idle stability)
The Polarfire-S muzzle unlocks when you progress the Lachmann-762 to level 5. The muzzle increases the overall range of the damage to the gun with noise suppression. Making it best to be used in stealth operations and camping. The Polarfire-S also stabilizes the recoil and increases the bullet velocity. As increasing the bullet velocity will minimize the bullet drop at long range. Making it a must to go with the SO-14 loadout.
With the overall advantages of the muzzle, the Polarfire-S has a negative effect on the aiming stability and aim down sight speed. These are overcome by tuning the Polarfire-S muzzle to maximum aim down sight speed, and bullet velocity. Helping in the long-range shots.
The FSS OLE-V laser will unlock as you progress the EBR-14 to level 14, so you don’t need to go out of your way to unlock or progress any gun. The FSS OLE-V laser will help to increase the aim-down sight speed, in addition to sprint-to-fire speed and aiming stability. This will help to fill the gap due to the muzzle Polarfire-S. The only drawback of this laser sight in the Warzone 2 SO-14 loadout is that it is visible when you are using the aim-down sight.
If you do not like the FSS OLE-V laser, as the laser is visible in aim-down sight, you can go for the Schlager PEQ Box IV. The laser sight only increases the aim down-sight speed and has no back draws. The laser sight is unlocked when you progress the Signal 50 to level 3.
The under-barrel Commando Foregrip is a universal attachment, and it can be used with any gun in the game. To unlock it, you have to progress the BAS-P to level 8. The under barrel plays a role in increasing the aim idle stability as it will be required in full auto mode along with stabilizing the recoil. This will help you to secure kills over long-range.
The attachment is tuned to maximize aim idle stability and recoil stabilization. To get the maximum out of this attachment. The back draw of the under-the-barrel is that it decreases the aim down-sight speed, but this is minimized when you use it with the laser sight attachment.
The 50-Round Drum enables you to carry up to 50 rounds in a single magazine as you are going to use the SO-14 in full auto mode. So, you are going to have a lot of ammunition problems. The SO-14 battle rifle has a default 25 magazine, but increasing the round will help you long last in a crossfire.
The disadvantage of the 50-Round Drum is that the drum has a greater size than a normal magazine. So, the 50-Round Drum affects the aim down sight speed, movement speed, sprint to fire speed, and reload speed.
The FTAC RTP-40 Stock is acquired through the dust devil or longball blueprint of SO-14. The stock helps to control the recoil, which is necessary when the gun is used in full auto mode. The stock’s back draw affects the aim down sight speed and crouch movement speed. The aim down-sight speed can be increased by tunning the stock to maximum aim down-sight speed and aiming idle stability.
The secondary weapon we recommend using with the SO-14 loadout is an X12 akimbo handgun. The time to kill is just absurd, and the hip-fire accuracy is fantastic. The X12 akimbo fills the gap when you have to reload the SO-14 in a crossfire battle. The secondary weapon does damage and does not affect the sprint speed. This handgun can fire as you pull the trigger, making them a must to go with as a secondary weapon.
Attachments of Secondary Weapon
The attachments of the X12 are:
- Muzzle: FT Steel Fire (Unlocks at P890 Level 24)
- Trigger Action: XRK TR9 Trigger (Unlocks at X12 Level 7)
- Magazine: 24 Round Mag (Unlocks at X12 Level 8)
- Laser Sight: 1MW Pistol Laser (Unlocks at P890 Level 5)
- Rear Grip: Akimbo X12 (Unlocks at X12 Level 19)
The attachments in the X12 mainly aim to increase the damage range and also to stabilize the recoil. The FT Steel, which unlocks when you progress the P890 to Level 24, increases the damage range, noise suppression, bullet velocity, and recoil smoothness. The muzzle is tuned to maximize aim down sight speed, and bullet velocity.
The XRK TR9 Trigger increases the fire rate of the X12 and aiming idle stability. The back draw is the hip fire moving accuracy, which is minimized by tuning the attachment to maximum recoil steadiness and damage range.
The 24 Round Mag increases the ammo capacity you can carry. Reducing the time needed to reload. The magazine unlocks when you progress the X12 to level 8.
The laser sight, 1MW Pistol Laser, increases the hip fire accuracy, hip recoil control, and sprint-to-fire speed. It minimizes the drawbacks of the XRK TR9 Trigger. The only issue with the laser sight is that the laser is visible during aim down sight.
The rear grip we are going to use is the default X12 one. The attachment is tuned to maximum aim down sight speed and sprint to fire speed is about – 0.08 in.
The Warzone 2 best SO-14 loadout needs to have a good combination of tactical and lethal. The equipment we recommend are:
- Tactical: Stim
- Lethal: Drill charge
The tactical equipment, Stim in Warzone 2, restores your health when used, increasing your chances of survival. It also refreshes your tactical sprint, enabling you to reposition yourself in dangerous situations and tackle enemy crossfire.
The lethal equipment, Drill charge, is one of the best go-to lethal equipment against campers. The drill charge has the ability to connect to and tunnel through building walls, ceilings, and roofs. They can even kill foes inside moving vehicles. It accomplishes this by charging the thermal lance, which pierces a wall or other obstruction before detonating. It is, therefore, most effective against infantry and mobile forces.
The perk package we recommend using with the Warzone 2 best SO-14 loadout will enable you to survive and track down enemy campers. It will help you fully utilize the SO-14 in long-range kills with an unlimited supply of ammo by scavenging. The details of the perk package are as follows.
The first base package you want to take with you in combat is Scavenger. As the SO-14 is usually used in full auto mode. Then you are probably going to run out of ammo if you want to survive a long time and secure kill streaks. In long-range fights, using lethal and tactical are used, especially the drill charge against campers. This perk is going to help you replenish them.
The second base package we recommend is the Tracker. You will need it to take down enemies if you are chasing them or taking out campers in a specified area. The best part of this perk is that the location of your kill will not be shown on the map, enabling you to scavenge from the drops of the enemy. This perk is a must to go with the scavenger.
In the crossfire, every second counts; hence the reload time is crucial. Thanks to the bonus perk Fast Hands, you will be able to reload, utilize equipment, and switch weapons more quickly. As we have attached a 50 Round Drum in the loadout of SO-14, the perk is going to help you minimize the time it takes to reload the gun.
The ultimate per Ghost is crucial if you are going to use the SO-14 at long range. Taking out enemies from a longer range also gives out your position to the enemy, especially if you want to camp. The perk will help you to be undetected by the enemies’ UAVs, portable radars, and heartbeat sensors. Helping you maintain that kill streak for a long time.
Munitions Box is the ideal loadout for field upgrades. You can use it to send out a box of ammo for yourself and your team members, as the SO-14 full auto mode requires a lot of ammo. The field upgrade will help you fill out that deficiency. When paired with the scavenger perk, ensuring an almost unlimited supply of ammo for the SO-14.
Dead Silence is a field upgrade that you can use if you do not have ammunition issues. It silences your footfalls momentarily to ensure a silent kill. Using the rifle, melee, or throwing knives to score a kill will reset the cooldown time. When paired with the SO-14 loadout, you can change your locations without giving out your position to your enemies through footsteps.
The Warzone 2 best SO-14 full auto mode loadout as mentioned above, will help you secure long-range kills with minimum recoil. As it is a battle rifle, its bullet is going to do a significant amount of damage at long range, and in full auto mode, you can spam fire a lot. The attachments will increase the aim to down-sight speed, which is very important in this rifle.
The perk package and equipment have been chosen to target the enemy at long range. The secondary weapon will fill out the role in close combat fire.
