The Fennec 45 is a brilliant SMG at close-range in Warzone 2, equipped with the fastest fire rate on Al Mazrah that deletes enemies if you’re using a meta WZ2 loadout.
While weapons like the Sakin MG38, RAAL MG, M4, and ISO Hemlock thrive at long-range in Warzone 2, it’s the SMGs that are unrivaled at close quarters.
However, with so many to choose from, it can be difficult to find an SMG that fits your style of play and excels in the current meta.
Well, one that’s still standing out from the crowd in Warzone 2 is the deadly Fennec 45. While the gun did get hit with damage nerfs, it remains immensely powerful at close quarters in Season 2 Reloaded.
Equipped with the best-in-class fire rate and a mind-blowing TTK, it’s a force to be reckoned with in Warzone 2. Of course, to maximize its power, you’ll need a top-tier Fennec 45 loadout.

Best Fennec 45 Warzone 2 loadout
- Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
- Muzzle: Lacerta Compensator
- Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
- Stock: Agile Assault-7
- Magazine: Fennec Mag 45
For starters, you’ll want to equip the Lacerta Compensator Muzzle and the Phase-3 Grip Underbarrel. These two attachments significantly decrease the SMG’s recoil, increase hip fire accuracy, and enhance the gun’s bullet velocity.
Next up, utilize the VLK LZR 7MW laser to boost ADS speed so you can snap onto your opponents before they have a chance to fire back. Not only that, the laser improves sprint-to-fire speed for added mobility when making aggressive plays.
When it comes to picking an optic, we think it’s better to run the iron sight and instead choose the Agile Assault-7 stock for a huge boost in mobility.
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 without having to reload.
