The SO-14 battle rifle is one of the guns that 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, my SO-14 loadout focuses on increasing the recoil stability with the 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.

Attachments

The attachments in the loadout will fill the area of controllability in the gun, which it lacks.

Following are the attachments that I recommend for SO-14:

  • 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)
  • Improved ADS Stability
  • Recoil Smoothness
  • Aiming Idle Stability
  • Sprint to Fire Speed

 

  • ADS Speed
  • Aim Walking Stability
  • Laser Visible in ADS

 

Secondary Weapon

The secondary weapon I 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 it a must to go with as a 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)

Equipment

The best SO-14 loadout needs to have a good combination of tactical and lethal.

The equipment I recommend are:

  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Drill charge

Perk Package

The perk package I recommend using with the 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.

  • Basic Perks: Scavenger and Tracker
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost

My Opinion On SO-14

My Steam Profile

The Warzone 2’s best SO-14 full auto mode loadout, as mentioned above, helps me secure long-range kills with minimum recoil. As it is a battle rifle, its bullet will 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. In the end, for a detailed perspective on Warzone 2, I recommend Asad Ahmed’s review and his comprehensive analysis.
