Best Warzone 2.0 LMG class loadouts: Attachments, Setup, Perks


Warzone 2.0 brings all of MW2’s LMGS into Al-Mazrah and Ashika Island, but which should you be using? Here, we rank the best LMG in Warzone 2.

LMGs are unique weapons that can excel in the right situation. They sacrifice weapon handling and mobility in favor of a fast TTK and a huge magazine. These beasts are perfect for taking down multiple players in quick succession or suppressing an opposing team.

But, with six unique LMGs to pick from, it can be difficult to make the call on which you should drop with. They all have their own strengths and are best suited to different playstyles.

We’re ranking them all from worst to best, as well as recommending attachments. Here’s our ranking of the best LMG in Warzone 2.

6. HCR 56

Best HCR 56 Warzone 2.0 loadout

  • Muzzle: XTen Ported 290
  • Optic: SZ Recharge-DX
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision 40
  • Magazine: 100 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Stip-40 Grip

Although it’s still decent, the HCR 56 is the west LMG in Warzone 2. It suffers from having a lot of vertical recoil which can be difficult to control at long range. Plus its damage isn’t anything special making it difficult to choose over the alternatives.

5. Rapp H

Best Rapp H Warzone 2.0 loadout

  • Muzzle: Eight-Point Flash Hider
  • Optic: SZ Recharge-DX
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision 40
  • Magazine: 100 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10

Although unspectacular the Rapp H is a reasonable choice thanks to its impressive 800 RPM fire rate and 100 Round Mag attachment. It’s excellent and firing a lot of shots in quick succession which can make it more forgiving than some other LMGs on this list.

4. 556 Icarus

Best 556 Icarus Warzone 2.0 loadout

  • Muzzle: XTen Ported 290
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision 40
  • Magazine: 100 Round Box Mag
  • Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip

This is the first LMG on our list that can be considered a viable weapon in Warzone 2. The 556 Icarus is effectively the M4’s big brother with handling stats closer to an AR than an LMG. Its recoil can be difficult to get used to but it’s arguably the only LMG suited for more aggressive playstyles.

3. RPK


Best RPK Warzone 2.0 loadout

  • Muzzle: Tempus GH50
  • Barrel: TAC 597 Barrel
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Magazine: 100 Round Drum

Once the king of Warzone 2, the RPK has fallen off in popularity following a series of nerfs. Even after the nerfs it is still a fine choice though thanks to its fast reload relative to its magazine size and above average handling for an LMG. Just be aware that the RPK has much more recoil than it used to.


Raal MG Warzone 2 loadoutActivison

Best RAAL MG Warzone 2.0 loadout

  • Muzzle: TA CG76
  • Optic: SZ Recharge-DX
  • Magazine: 100 Round Belt Mag
  • Underbarrel: XRK Dune Grip
  • Rear Grip: Stip-40 Grip

The RAAL MG isn’t just the loudest LMG in Warzone 2, it’s one of the best. It’s spectacular time to kill and unmatched ammo efficiency makes it perfect for spam fire and suppressing enemies. The RAAL might be slow but it packs one hell of a punch to make up for it.

  • Muzzle: Eight-Point Flash Hider
  • Optic: SZ Recharge-DX
  • Underbarrel: Cronen WL55
  • Magazine: 150-Round Box Magazine
  • Rear Grip: Bruen G305 Grip Wrap

The Sakin MG38 offers everything you want from an LMG. It has a monstrous 150 Round Box Magazine, low recoil, great damage, and above average mobility. As long as you respect its weaknesses this heavyweight stands as not only the best LMG, but one of the best weapons in Warzone 2.

That rounds off the best LMGs in Warzone 2.0 right now. Be sure to check back in the future because as the meta shifts, so will this list.
