In Season 2 of Warzone 2, WhosImmortal demonstrated a rifle loadout that, in his opinion, can challenge any SMG at close range. Season 3 of Warzone 2 is quickly approaching, and it promises to balance adjustments to shake up the already fairly established meta.
But before that update is released, players and content producers are still competing with one another to find the best attachment and weapon combinations that will make winning the battle royale simple. An outstanding illustration of discovering such a hidden gem is a video from content creator
WhosImmortal from April 8 that showed off a loadout for the STB 556 assault rifle that makes use of the weapon’s iron sight for close and medium-range fighting and, in the author’s words, “beats every SMG” at close range.
Warzone 2’s WhosImmortal STB 556 loadout
WhosImmortal argued that the STB 556 is highly adaptable and practical at various ranges thanks to his loadout. This assault rifle can compete with the greatest Call of Duty Warzone 2 SMGs thanks to attachments that focus on speed and aggression, and it can still outmaneuver enemies who are firing at you from a greater distance.
The content creator described the underappreciated gun as a “wildly practical SMG/AR hybrid when built for speed and aggression.”
- Barrel: 16.5″ Bruen S901 Barrel
- Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
- Comb: FTAC C11 Riser
- Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip
The assault rifle can be integrated into your setup as either sniper support or a close-range weapon because of its exceptionally quick TTK at close and medium ranges. It is important to note that WhosImmortal claimed that the optic is necessary because the weapon’s iron sight is imperfect. For a rifle of this type, the build described above focuses on improving its mobility and handling but also enables you to be more aggressive and to ADS and shoot after sprinting much faster.
Despite this, you’ll still need a sniper rifle or an AR, such as the meta-dominating ISO Hemlock, to cover medium and long ranges, where this specific loadout performs poorly.
