The DG-58 LSW has emerged as a surprise top-tier option making a serious push to be the strongest LMG in Call of Duty’s battle royale. This is the best DG-58 LSW loadout to use in Warzone and get the most out of this meta primary.

While there’s some overlap with multiplayer and Warzone it isn’t uncommon for a gun that excels in one to remain largely unused in the other. Warzone 2 saw this across multiple metas with the likes of the M13B and TAQ-V.

The latest and most extreme example of this is the DG-58 LSW, an LMG inspired by the real-world QBZ-95. It’s an extremely well-rounded and accurate machine gun that despite being hardly touched in multiplayer has quickly become one of the most used guns in Warzone.

Here’s the best DG-58 LSW Warzone loadout to dominate and win games with ease.


Best DG-58 LSW Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Xten Ported 290
  • Barrel: Wudi Long Barrel
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Stock: Recoil Reduction Buttplate
  • Rear Grip: Varanus Steady Grip

Although the DG-58 LSW’s recoil is predictable, it also suffers from a significant amount of vertical kick. Minimizing this and keeping the DG-58 as accurate as possible is a priority for the build and the most impactful attachment for this is the Xten Ported 290 muzzle.

Continuing the theme of recoil control, both the Recoil Reduction Buttplate stock and Varanus Steady Grip massively reduce recoil and make the LSW much more accurate. With these three attachments, it’s possible to down enemies from hundreds of meters away which is impressive for a full auto weapon.

Finally, the Wudi Long Barrel is great as it further improves the LMG’s long-range capabilities while the Corio Eagleeye 2.5x optic is the best choice for medium to long-range engagements thanks to the clear sights it provides.

DG-58 LSW Warzone Loadout: Perks and Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: Resolute
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

For Perk Slot 1, Double Time works well as it improves Tactical Sprint by doubling its duration and reducing refresh time. Combining that with Sleight of Hand makes sense with the DG-58 LSW as these perks address common issues with most LMGs, mobility, and reload speed.

Tempered is a nice option in Perk slot 3 with it reducing the amount of armor plates required for a full heal to just two. This is great as it allows for fast healing and drastically reduces the amount of plates you’ll need during a match.

The new Resolute Perk works extremely well with LMGs like the DG-58 LSW. When equipped it grants a short bonus to movement speed after being shot. This allows for movement that just isn’t ordinarily possible with an LMG which can be used to get to cover and dodge incoming fire.

A Frag Grenade is a classic choice for lethal equipment. It not only deals a ton of damage but frags can also be cooked to explode at just the right moment. Finally, the best tactical is a Smoke Grenade which can be deployed to create improvised cover when needed.
