First up is the MX Silencer, Bernard XL214 736mm, and Tight Grip. All of these attachments greatly improve the UGM’s accuracy, which makes it an absolute laser across mid to long-range engagements. 

In fact, when the LMG is kitted out with the above attachments it barely moves when fired. This means you can simply focus on your positioning without the need to constantly wrestle for control.

The added recoil reduction enables you to zero in on your targets with the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6X and light them up with the 6.5mm Sakura 125 Round Box. Pair this with the added damage from Lengthened and the max staring ammo from Fully Loaded, and you have a recipe for success.

Best UGM-8 setup (Perks & equipment)

The best UGM-8 loadout utilizes a number of meta Warzone Perks and equipment.

Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Armaguerra 43
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stim

Similar to many Warzone setups, our UGM-8 loadout utilizes E.O.D, Amped, and Overkill. E.O.D greatly reduces the damage taken from non-killstreak explosives and fire, which, in a game like Warzone, is a great addition to your setup. 

Amped allows you to switch between weapons faster, making it particularly useful if you do run out of bullets mid-fight. Lastly, Overkill allows you to equip the meta Armaguerra 43 as your secondary. 

While the UGM-8 does have decent mobility and speed, having access to one of the best Warzone SMGs will only increase your kill potential further. After all, having an SMG with quick ADS speeds and high damage should be a top priority for any aggressive player.

To round off this loadout, we’ve utilized the Throwing Knife and the Stim in the Lethal and Tactical slots. The Throwing Knife is great at instantly killing downed enemies, while the Stim gives you the ability to stave off any major damage – giving you the ability to stave off death itself.
