Best MTZ-556 Warzone loadout: Class setup, attachments, Perks

The MTZ-556 assault rifle in Warzone.

Ever since it was buffed, the MTZ-556 has been one of the best assault rifles in Warzone. Season 3 still has it at the top and here is how you can bring the most out of it with the best attachments.

For most of Warzone’s history, since it was released alongside Urzikstan, the MTZ-556 has been a decent but unspectacular option. The combination of its below-average damage output beyond close range and high recoil made it better suited to multiplayer’s meta than Warzone.

However, the MTZ-556 received a massive buff on February 21, which not only made it viable but even one of the best weapons in Warzone. It is now extremely easy to use and consistent at long range, especially with an optimized loadout, with further buffs coming as seasons progress.

To help you get the most out of this meta AR we’ve put together this MTZ-556 loadout which dominates on every Warzone map.


Best MTZ-556 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: MTZ Drifter Heavy Long Barrel
  • Optic: JAK Glassless Optic
  • Stock: NTZ Marauder Stock
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

Bringing out the accuracy for the MTZ-556 is going to be the best part of this loadout so you can hit your shots from just about any range.

The VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor is starting this off by giving you better control of both vertical and horizontal recoil. But in addition to this, it will also give you a greater damage range, bullet velocity, and ADS speed.

The MTZ Drifter Heavy Long Barrel will give you more bullet velocity to buff your range even more.

The MTZ Marauder Stock will give you more help with vertical and horizontal recoil, which will keep your shots stable while shooting from a long distance.

The JAK Glassless Optic will be both accurate and quicker to aim, which is also what the 50 Round Drum will provide, in addition to its larger clip size.

Best MTZ-556 alternative

While not an assault rifle, the SOA Subverter battle rifle excels at long-range thanks to its ease of use, just like the MTZ-556. It has been a strong choice in the meta for a while and that doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon.

You can also look at the SVA 545 or BP50 for more similar mobile assault rifle options.
