LMGs aren’t exactly known for their mobility and are not used as much in the current Warzone meta — but with the right attachments, the Stoner 63 can be a real winner for you.
The Stoner 63 has been a fan-favorite gun amongst LMG enthusiasts since it tore its way through the virtual battlefields of the original Black Ops. Fortunately, this hard-hitting LMG still packs a punch in Warzone, and is an underrated selection.
Some issues such as poor damage range and slow mobility hinder the Stoner 63 from becoming a top-tier meta weapon, but it is always fun wielding a devastating LMG for a change from the current meta.
The large magazine size of the Stoner 63 may actually come in handy after the recent health update, as part of the Season 3 Reloaded update.

Best Stoner 63 loadout for Warzone
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 21.8″ Task Force
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap
While the Stoner 63 has a fairly decent standard sight, the Axial Arms 3x remains a staple pick. It provides a clear picture of your surroundings. This will help you win any short to medium-range engagements with ease.
Next up is the 21.8″ Task Force barrel and Field Agent Grip. These attachments make the Stoner 63’s vertical recoil a lot more manageable, while also increasing the gun’s overall firing movement speed.
The Stoner 63 will still creep up the screen during prolonged engagements, but these attachments will enable you to kill your target before needing to make major adjustments.
The Agency Suppressor increases the LMG’s damage range and sound suppression, enabling you to sit back and beam anyone that dares stray into your sights. When this is combined with the 3x magnification from the Axial Arms, you have a truly lethal combination.
Lastly, it’s key you round off this powerful loadout with the Airborn Elastic Wrap which increases ADS speed, flinch resistance, at the cost of reduced sprint recover speed and movement speed while firing.

Best Stoner 63 setup (Perks & equipment)
- Perk 1: Double Time
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Secondary: OTs 9
- Lethal: Semtex
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
Our Stoner 63 loadout uses Double Time and Amped to keep you mobile, while also enabling you to quickly swap weapons. These perks are important for most Warzone classes, but especially those that are a little slower in their overall mobility.
The Overkill perk enables the use of any of the best SMG class loadouts as a secondary weapon. Not only does this enable you to remain competitive in close-quarter firefights, but it also allows for some incredibly mobile plays.
Lastly, both the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor enable you to seek out targets and obliterate any campers. Simply use your Heartbeat Sensor and creep up on your unsuspecting foes to get some quick kills.
Don’t forget, you can switch out the Heartbeat Sensor for a Throwing Knife if you prefer to instantly kill downed enemies, but that completely depends on your playstyle.
How to unlock the Stoner 63 in Warzone
This beefy LMG is unlocked as soon as you reach level 4. This means you won’t need to do any pesky challenges in order to use it in Warzone.
However, you’ll still need to grind the gun’s levels in Black Ops Cold War’s standard multiplayer or Warzone modes if you wish to get hold of the very best attachments.
SMGS to pair with the Stoner 63
In order to use the Stoner 63 in either Caldera or Rebirth Island a sub-machine gun secondary is an absolute must. The Welgun is a fast firing SMG that can tear through enemies in close range egagments.
If the Welgun doesn’t suit your fancy, then the Carl Gustaf (H4 Blixen) should be the next SMG that you’ll want to try. In fact, this hard-hitting SMG offers great mobility and accuracy across close to medium-range eggaements.
