Warzone Season 2 is here, and it’s brought with it a handful of new weapons looking to take Caldera by storm. While the Whitley LMG looks like it packs a punch, it’s the new KG M40 Assualt Rifle that has caught most players’ eyes.

Best KG M40 loadout for Warzone

The KG M40 is new to Warzone Season 2.
  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: Krausnick 700mm 01V
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Krausnick 12V
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: .30-06 50 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Tight Grip
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

As the KG M40 already deals a lot of damage compared to other weapons in its class, our loadout is geared around keeping some of its pesky recoil in check. Both the Mercury Silencer and Krausnick 700mm 01V greatly improve accuracy at distance, at the expense of a small amount of damage range.

The Krausnick 12V Stock and m1941 Hand Stop also boost accuracy significantly, making the gun a menace in Caldera’s vast, open spaces. This does come at the cost of some ADS speed, but we can make this back up by attaching a Fabric Grip.

Will the KG M40 become one of Warzone’s best Assault Rifles?

Ammo-wise, the developers themselves recommend .30-06 50 Round Drums. They offer a boost to the KG M40’s already devasting damage, and the extra capacity helps players stay in the fight for longer without running dry.

Bullet velocity is still key in Warzone, so loading up your clips with Lengthened Rounds will give you the edge at the beginning of every fight. Meanwhile, the Tight Grip proficiency offers yet another boost in accuracy, making the KG M40 an absolute laser.

Fully Loaded is a no-brainer, as it means you can focus on racking up kills rather than scavenging for ammo. Finally, optics are down to personal preference, but we’ve kept things simple with the Slate Reflector for now.

The KG M40 has one of the highest damage ratings in its class.
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

When considering which perks to use with our KG M40 Warzone loadout, it’s safest to stick to the established setup. E.O.D to protect you from rogue explosives, and Overkill so you can bring along another weapon like an SMG or Shotgun.

If you do run out of ammo or get dragged into a close-quarters battle, Amped will let you switch to your secondary quicker, so you’re never left with the wrong weapon for too long.

Finally, we recommend a Semtex for a lethal that is effective and easy to use, and Stims for a health top-up when you’re in a sticky situation.
