If there’s one thing that will guarantee a win in Call of Duty Warzone 2, it’s your loadout. After all, this is a battle royale game whose sole aim is to crown the last man standing on the battlefield. With season 1 being in the public domain for a while now and season 2 just around the corner, many Call of Duty fans has come to an agreement as to which loadout proves reliable, as well as preparing themselves for the upcoming battle of the season. As of now, most loadouts have been streamlined to about the same caliber. However, there are still quite a few that remain more dependable than the rest.
Loadouts include meta weapons, equipment, and special perks you don’t want to miss. For meta weapons, we’re looking for those that need the least reload, fire the fastest, and pierce through that reinforced armor like a piece of cake. As for equipment and perks, we’re looking for undeniably beneficial items that will guarantee a head start rather than get in your way. So, if you’re wondering which loadouts to collect or purchase at “The Shop,” these five best loadouts in Call of Duty Warzone 2 are the top sets that deliver incredible results on the battlefield.
5. TAQ-56 + MP5 Lachmann Sub + Stun Grenade + Weapons Specialist
The TAQ-56 weapon, or SCAR-L, is a must-have assault rifle on the battlefield simply because it won’t let you down when the stakes are high. With just four shots, your opponent should drop dead. As long as the four shots hit at least the upper torso, you’re good to go.
Any Call of Duty fan will tell you to get a killer long-range weapon plus a really fast mid to close-range weapon for when opponents start raining down on you like flies. At such a time, you don’t need accuracy. Rather, you need a high-speed weapon that fires fast like fireworks and needs the fewest reloads. This is why we paired TAQ-56 with the Lachmann Sub, or MP5, submachine gun (SMG). From here, you’re all set. Perhaps the only add-on you can make is a stun grenade and weapon specialist perks combo, and you’re good to go.
4. MCPR-300 + Kastov 762 + Semtex + Specter
Sniper lovers can consider the MCPR-300 weapon. Although it’s less popular among COD players, it does have notable potential to do lethal damage. All you need to do is improve your aim in the upper torso area. Otherwise, all the other handling necessities are made easier for you. Reloading is slightly faster, and the recoil is more controlled, thus saving you from the little awkward moments you might have experienced before.
On the contrary, the Kastov 762 has slightly slower handling. This is great, though, for this specific loadout, because you can then utilize this powerful assault rifle’s potential to the fullest. It oddly behaves like an SMG, with its ability to obliterate several enemies in mere milliseconds. Consequently, most COD players are gravitating toward it more. It has raw firepower, even from afar, and tallies up an impressive total kill rate. For this loadout, consider a Semtex and Specter perk combo, especially since this loadout works great at mid to long-range.
3. M4 + SP-R 208/Lachmann Sub + Stun Grenade + Weapons Specialist
The M4 assault rifle is more of a staple in the series. It’s become a fan-favorite simply for its more-than-one specialties. You don’t even need to curate an attachment combo for it to deliver. This means beginners can give this one a try. It’s a powerful mid-range rifle that has been tried, tested, and proven to be reliable and performant over the years.
Because the M4 is so good and versatile, it’s easy to pair it with another powerful counterpart with good recoil control and an impressive damage range. This is why you can pair it with either a high-fire-rate weapon like the Lachmann Sub or the SP-R 208 marksman rifle. An SP-R 208 can easily drop enemies with a precise headshot. It fires fast, with no moment to spare. The only thing is that it may deal less potent damage at close range compared to others. So, probably geer toward it if you prefer to pick off enemies from a distance.
2. RPK + Fennec 45 + Semtex + Stun Grenade + Weapons Specialist
Like the M4, the RPK light machine gun (LMG) isn’t anything new to the scene. It’s a tried, tested, and come-true devastating, close-range weapon. It may sometimes be somewhat sluggish for beginners due to its heavy weight. However, the RPK tends to feel more like an SMG with manageable recoil and faster reload speed. With the right attachments, you can even amp it up to deal just as much damage at long range.
A way to combat the heaviness of the RPK is to pair it with a lightweight SMG like the Fennec 45. Although a seemingly timid-looking sidearm to have, the Fennec 45 is a pretty powerful close-range weapon capable of dropping multiple enemies in one clip. Combined, this loadout pushes the RPK’s damage output to the limits. Plus, it offers very little to no recoil to worry about. Pair it up with a stun grenade, semtex, and weapons specialist combo, and you’re good to go.
1. Signal 50 + Kastov-74u + Semtex + Heartbeat Sensor
Now let's look at the best loadouts in Call of Duty Warzone 2. If you’re a sniper lover and feel like your strength lies less in accuracy and more in speed, you might want to consider the Signal 50, which stands out from the crowd for its shockingly high fire rate. Plus, you don’t need to always maintain distance. You can always get as close as you can to maximize damage output.
The signal can feel heavy for some. So, the Kastov-74u can save the day with its smooth handling. Similarly, the Kastov-74u AR can be used at close or long-range. It deals high damage and allows you to move through buildings with ease. Simply switch between the high fire rate Signal 50 and the high-speed, close-range dominant Kastov-74u to skid through Warzone 2 like it’s an everyday gig.
