Best Fennec 45 Warzone 2 loadout: Class setup, attachments, Perks
Warzone 2’s Fennec 45 continues its downfall as its popularity reaches an all-time low. However, it is still quite a good SMG that can help you dominate games. Here’s our pick for the best Fennec 45 loadout in Warzone 2, including the best attachments, perks, and equipment.
Based on the real-world KRISS Vector, the Fennec 45 is a rapid-fire submachine gun that once stood alone as the best SMG in Warzone 2. Nerfs to the Fennec in Season 2 would see its popularity decrease with competitors taking its crown.
However, Season 4 has seen it receive a buff decreasing its bullets to kill by one. That may not seem like much but given how fast its TTK was already even a small improvement can create a truly dominant gun. After the buff, the Fennec 45 has once again become a top-tier option.
To get the most out of the Fennec 45 in Warzone 2 you’ll need a top-tier loadout, and thankfully we’ve got you covered.

Best Fennec 45 Warzone 2 loadout
- Muzzle: Bruen Pendulum
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
- Stock: Agile Assault-7 Stock
- Magazine: Fennec Mag 45
- Rear Grip: Fennec Stippled Grip
For starters, you’ll want to equip the Bruen Pendelum Muzzle and the Fennec Stippled Grip Rear Grip. These two attachments significantly decrease the magnitude of the SMG’s vertical recoil which is the hardest part to control. It also slightly reduces horizontal bounce making the Fennec more predictable.
The Fennec is not gifted with great iron sights and they can be awkward to use at times. Some players may be able to put up with it but we still recommend using an effective close-range optic like the Cronen Mini Pro to make sure you don’t miss your shots.
The Agile Assault-7 Stock provides a huge boost in mobility keeping the Fennec 45 feeling snappy even after equipping other heavy attachments. The improved Sprint Speed it gives is especially useful as you’ll be spending plenty of time running around crossing Warzone 2’s large maps.
Finally, round off the loadout with the Fennec Mag 45 so you never run out of bullets during a skirmish and can take out multiple opponents before having to reload. This is a must given that Fennec’s rapid fire rate can empty even a larger magazine in no time at all.
Best Fennec 45 Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment
- Base Perk 1: Double Time
- Base Perk 2: Bomb Squad
- Bonus Perk: Resupply
- Ultimate Perk: High Alert
- Lethal: Grenade
- Tactical Equipment: Stun Grenade
To kick off, it gives you access to Double Time which doubles the duration of Tactical Sprint which is excellent when wielding an SMG. At medium range, the Fennec is often dominated by ARs, but at close quarters, the gun is unrivaled so having access to extra mobility to reposition is extremely useful.
There’s nothing worse than dying to a claymore or grenade in Warzone 2, and fortunately, Bomb Squad prevents this from happening. It’s a must-use Perk for aggressive players who don’t want to get punished pushing buildings and flanking behind enemy teams.
As for your bonus perk, you’ll have access to Resupply adding an extra lethal and tactical, plus it recharges your equipment over time. This is incredible for providing your team utility and making sure you have the tools to perform the best possible at all times.
Finally, High Alert is a top-tier Ultimate Perk with the Fennec as it is with just about every other gun. When triggered it notifies you of any foes in the area looking your way giving you an opportunity to escape dangerous situations.
