LMGs aren’t exactly known for their mobility, but the Stoner 63 is one gun you’ll want to try giving a go. With the right attachments, it can be a real winner for you in Warzone.
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. While it may no longer be as potent as it once was, this LMG still packs a punch and is slowly rising in popularity.
With the arrival of Warzone’s Season 5 update, LMGs are slowly creeping back to the top of the meta. If you’re looking to get ahead, the Stoner 63 is an early favorite to help you dominate Verdansk.
It might not be as fast as the game’s SMG class, but the Stoner 63 is arguably the most viable Black Ops Cold War LMG in the game. Unlike the M60 and RPD, this LMG actually has decent accuracy by default. When you combine this with its high-damage rounds, you have a recipe for success.

Best Stoner 63 loadout for Warzone
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 21.8″ Task Force
- Optic: Royal & Kross 4x
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition: Fast Mag
While the Stoner 63 has a fairly decent standard sight, the Royal & Kross 4x remains a staple pick for most Black Ops Cold War guns. Not only does it get rid of any annoying obstructions, but it also provides a clear picture of your surroundings. This will help you win long-range engagements, even keeping you in the fight against snipers.
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 Fast Mag to significantly reduce your reload time. This will allow you to get back into action as quickly as possible and stop you from getting caught mid-animation.
Best Stoner 63 setup (Perks & equipment)
- Perk 1: E.O.D.
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Secondary: MAC-10
- Lethal: Semtex
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
This loadout uses EOD and Amped to keep you safe from any explosives 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 the MAC-10 – which remains one of the best SMGs in Warzone. 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.
