Best Warzone 2 Lockwood MK2 loadout: Class setup, attachments, perks


The Lockwood MK2 emerged as an underrated weapon in MW2, and undeservedly flies under the radar in Warzone 2 as well. To maximize the weapons’ strengths, you’ll need a top-tier loadout.

Marksman rifles held a niche place in the original Warzone’s meta, but the often maligned class could be special in Warzone 2. Marksman rifles are popular selections because of their blistering fast ADS speed, devastating damage, and quick mobility.

All three of those traits perfectly translate over to Warzone 2. After the Season 1 update, players demanded a sniper rifle buff because the weapons don’t one-shot kill enemies. Marksman rifles have the capability of one-shot killing enemies, and sniper users should consider switching classes while waiting for a buff.

Best Lockwood MK2 Warzone 2 loadout


  • Barrel: 25″ Buffalo Barrel
  • Muzzle: FTAC Dreadnought
  • Optic: SZ Bullseye optic
  • Laser: Accu-Shot 5MW Laser
  • Stock: Lockwood Bullseye stock

For our loadout, we focused on improving the Lockwood MK2’s damage range and bullet velocity without sacrificing too much mobility and short-range capabilities. The 25″ Buffalo Barrel helps in all facets, increasing bullet speed, damage range, and movement speed.

We opted to use the FTAC Dreadnought Muzzle because it also improves bullet velocity and adds an extra element of recoil smoothness to help line up difficult shots. The useful attachments also offers sound suppression, keeping you off the minimap when firing.

Unlike other weapons, the Lockwood MK2 has easy-to-use iron sights, however, for long-ranged engagements, the SZ Bullseye Optic will be valuable, providing a 6x magnification.

Using a marksman rifle forces you to react extremely fast when going up against an AR or SMG. The Accu-Shot 5MW Laser boosts ADS speed, aiming stability, and sprint-to-fire speed.

Finally, the Lockwood Bullseye Stock increases ADS, sprint, and crouch movement speed.

Strong Arm comes in handy if you are getting pushed while holding a sniping angle or attempting to push players out of cover. The perk allows you to throw equipment items further and see where they will land.

Using a marksman rifle requires pinpoint accuracy. Focus reduces flinch when aiming down sights and extends hold breath duration, allowing players to line up a difficult shot better.

Ghost will help you stay off the mini-map in the final circle, as enemies will use heartbeat sensors to find you.

Finally round off the setup with Semtex for flushing opponents out of cover and Flash Grenades for clearing encloses spaces.
