ISO Hemlock Warzone 2Activison

ISO Hemlock is a Warzone 2 AR that has been through a vast amount of changes and it’s definitely not the king of the meta anymore, so in order to maximize its damage, we’ve put together the best ISO Hemlock loadout for you to use on Al Mazrah in Warzone 2.

When it comes to ARs in Warzone 2, the meta is extremely competitive with the likes of the TAQ-56, Chimera, Kastov 762, and Kastov-74u all fighting for the top spots.

The ISO Hemlock was the standout pick in Season 2 Reloaded which sadly made it a prime candidate for a nerf in Season 3. The knee-jerk reaction was to abandon the AR and search for an alternative, but players quickly realized that the Hemlock is still powerful, so the player base came back to it.

Equipped with a devastating mid-range TTK and a manageable recoil pattern, it’s perfect for racking up kills on Al Mazrah. Over the past few weeks, the gun has dominated the meta.
