Best Kastov 545 Warzone 2 loadout


  • Barrel: IG-K30 406MM
  • Muzzle: Echoless-80
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

The main goal of this loadout is to make the Kastov 545 effective at both close and medium-range combat. Starting with the IG-K30 406MM Barrel, it helps to improve the bullet velocity, recoil control, damage range, and hip fire accuracy of the weapon. Next, the Echoless-80 Muzzle catalyzes the effect of the Barrel by suppressing sound and smoothening the recoil.

The VX Pineapple underbarrel helps to make the recoil steadier and also improves hip fire accuracy. We have chosen the Cronen Mini Pro optic here as the recoil increases significantly if you use a larger scope. However, it’s a personal preference and you experiment a bit to choose which one suits you best.

Lastly, we’d recommend the 45 Round Mag as it ensures you have enough ammo in case the entire opponent squad decides to push together.

Best Kastov 545 Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

Perk Package: Weapon Specialist

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade

In battle royale, it’s essential to keep another primary weapon (like an SMG or a Sniper), depending upon your style of play. That’s exactly why we are recommending Overkill as it allows you to do the same. Strong Arm makes your throwables land more precisely while Spotter helps you spot enemy field upgrades, killstreaks, or equipment through walls.

The Survivor perk pings enemies who knocked you out and allows your teammates to revive you quicker. For equipment, we’ve recommended the combo of a Frag Grenade and a Flash Grenade to relocate and disorient your enemies at the same time.
