The FN Scar 17 has been a fan-favorite ever since Modern Warfare 2 hit our screens back in 2009, but you’ll need to equip this iconic assault rifle with the best attachments if you wish to truly dominate your foes. Here, we break down two of the strongest FN Scar 17 loadouts that you can use in both Warzone and Modern Warfare. 

With the likes of the overpowered Grau and ever-popular M4A1 loadouts dominating Modern Warfare’s virtual battlefields, the FN Scar 17 has struggled to shine in the current weapon meta. Despite its incredibly small clip size and slow rate of fire, this deadly assault rifle still delivers dizzying damage numbers across all ranges. 

Whether you’re after another gun to level up or simply want a rifle that you can rely upon in intense firefights, then be sure to add the FN Scar 17 to your arsenal. In order to help you get the most out of this rifle, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to gain a competitive edge over your foes.

Increase the FN Scar 17’s damage range with these deadly attachments.
  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Forge TAC 20.0” LB
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 30 Round Mags

Warzone’s Verdansk map is a big place and having a gun that only excels in close-quarter battles can quickly leave you high and dry. Fortunately, this loadout greatly increases the FN Scar 17’s ranged damage, allowing you to capitalize on those medium to long-range firefights.

The first attachment on the list is the Monolithic Suppressor. This hefty muzzle drastically increases your effective damage range, while also keeping the gun silent when fired.

Being able to shoot without giving away your position is huge, particularly when you wish to remain hidden from prying eyes. 

Next up is the Forge TAC 20.0” LB and Commando Foregrip. These attachments further supplement the FN Scar 17’s already decent ranged damage, but also assist with aiming stability and lower the rifle’s recoil. Even with these attachments equipped, the FN Scar 17 still has a fair amount of vertical recoil, so simply pull down on your mouse/analog stick when firing for long periods of time. 

The FN Scar 17’s 20 round magazine may be sufficient in Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer, but this can leave you underequipped when facing multiple armored enemies in Warzone. As a result, it’s often best to equip the 30 Round Mags to avoid any frustrating deaths. 

Lastly, the Commando Foregrip and VLK 3.0x Optic aids in recoil and aiming stability, whilst boosting your zoom level for those long-distance shots. While these attachments aren’t guaranteed to save you against the lightning-fast Fennec and MP5 loadouts, it will at least give you a fighting chance.

Melt foes in close-quarter firefights with this speedy loadout.
  • Monolithic Supressor 
  • Forge Tac 20.0″ LB
  • FTAC Collapsible Stock 
  • Commando Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape

Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer matches play a lot faster than those seen in Warzone, especially since the majority of maps force players into close quarter combat. As a result, we’ve swapped out the Monolithic Suppressor, Forge TAC 20.0” LB, and 30 Round Mags. While these attachments give the FN Scar 17 increased range damage and bullet velocity, they increase gun’s ADS speed.

Both the Forge Tac 20.0″ LB boosts your damage range, bullet velocity and recoil, but minimizes your ADS speed and movement. Because of this, utilizing FSS Collapsible Stock improves these things, negating the decreases in these to help you maintain your agility. 

We recommend keeping the Commando Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape in pretty much every loadout you create as they feature next to no real drawbacks.

Although hackers and stream snipers seem to have broken spirits across Call of Duty: Warzone, the battle royale remains a premier title in the field. As of February, 2021 — here are the 20 highest-earning competitors in terms of total tournament winnings. 

It may not feel as legitimized as esports like Apex Legends and Fortnite, but competitive Warzone continues to overcome cheater drama and the absence of a transparent SBMM system (or ranked league) to stay on top of Twitch’s viewership every week. With numerous high-paying tournaments every month since the game’s March 2020 debut, some players have stood out from the pack and made an impressive salary’s worth of prize winnings. We’ve seen incredible new world records set, a host of celebrities get involved, and a variety of high-stakes, big-bucks tournaments.

Using data from esportsearnings.com, we take a look at the top 20 Warzone players in terms of tournament winnings. We’ll take a more in-depth look at the top 3, and then provide a full list of the top 20.

3. Rhys ‘Rated’ Price – $100,658

Rated-100-Thieves

Winning tournament after tournament since partnering with Aydan, Rated has become the third competitor to crack $100,000 in Warzone earnings and simultaneously supplanted SuperEvan as No. 3 on the earnings list. With event wins during the $25K Code Red 2v2 and $25K Dallas Empire Challenge 2v2, Rated and Aydan continue to fly toward the top earnings spot.

A former London Royal Raven, Rated’s accurate mechanics and game sense have seamlessly transitioned to the battle royale. Given his individual talent and the unparalleled comms between he and Aydan, it’s hard to imagine the duo not taking the Nos. 1 and 2 earnings spots within a few months.

2. Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad – $135,721

Aydan Warzone

Based on his tweets and streams, it feels like the only thing that Aydan cares about right now is overtaking HusKerrs and becoming the highest earner in Verdansk. And, down by just around $1,000, he’s making serious progress toward that goal.

From Fortnite to Warzone, Aydan has been a longstanding figure in the battle royale sphere. But, for those unfamiliar with Epic Games’ third-person shooter, the charming beatboxer has truly made his mark on Verdansk by proving that his head is worth appreciating for more than its infamous dent. An absolute demon, Aydan has comfortably shifted from duos with MuTeX and Zlaner to winning every single 2v2 tournament with Rated.

Sitting atop our Warzone power rankings for consecutive months, it should not be long before Aydan overtakes Big Husk.

1. Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas – $136,150

Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is a battle royale star who has also held a number of Warzone world records. He previously made a name for himself in both Black Ops 4’s Blackout and Apex Legends, but has since transitioned over to Warzone. And that transition has proved immensely profitable, as the calm, collected gamer has become the first Warzone player to collect over $100,000 in tournament winnings.

As the most decorated player on Verdansk, HusKerrs shoots straight, rotates with vehicles, and practically never loses his head amid pressure. That mentality complements his skill, resulting in numerous Warzone titles.

Now, Aydan is gunning for his spot and HusKerrs seems to have taken some offense to the hopeful usurper’s lack of confidence in the reigning top earner. Eager to maintain his place, HusKerrs has begun grinding wagers with a new duo, Zlaner, and is quickly regaining top-dog form.

Top 20 Warzone players: highest earnings (as of February 24 2021)

The full top 20 highest earning Warzone players are listed below. In total, across all 20, over $1 million has been earned through Warzone tournaments. And those numbers are sure to increase, as prize pools continue to get larger and larger.

Since this is just a list of the highest earners cumulatively, it doesn’t include averages earned per event, otherwise, some players like Jukeyz and Biffle (whose invitations are limited by region and school, respectively) would likely be higher on the list.

 No.  Player Earnings
1 HusKerrs $136,150.01
2 Aydan $135,720.83
3 Rated $100,658.33

18 DougIsRaw $42,566.00

While Warzone’s tourneys and prize pools dropped for a period of time as attention shifted to Black Ops Cold War and the Call of Duty League, the game is regaining momentum as Season 2 launches. Already, numerous huge tourneys have been announced and the landscape for top earners is on the precipice of shifting.

We will continue to update this article’s figures as the competitive Warzone landscape develops.
