The best C58 loadout will allow you to take down enemies easily in Warzone Pacific Season 1. Although it may no longer be a top pick since the Vanguard integration, when paired with the right attachments, this weapon can be quite effective.

Previously in the Warzone Season 5 reloaded update, the C58 received a nerf in the form of a slight recoil increase. However, it still remains a favorite among many skilled Warzone players.

Whether you’re looking to try out the C58 Assault Rifle or wish to simply kit it out with the best attachments, then you’ll want to use the best loadout possible.

While there are many competitive assault rifle choices out there, the C58 is capable of delivering some pretty potent damage due to its high fire rate. Despite having a slower fire rate, this deadly AR offers great handling and TTK across close to mid ranges.

Here’s everything there is to know in order to build the ultimate C58 loadout in Warzone.

This C58 loadout has virtually no recoil.
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.5” Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip

Like most Cold War Assault Rifles, the best C58 build will look familiar to those that have utilized the likes of the XM4 and Krig 6. In fact, if you ever used either of these guns you’ll know what just to expect.

The Agency Suppressor and 18.6” Task Force barrel are integral to most Cold War ARs, especially the C58. These powerful attachments increase the gun’s effective damage range, bullet velocity, vertical recoil control, and even suppress your shots. These became ever more vital after Season 5 Reloaded nerfs added to the gun’s overall recoil.

Unlike the AMAX, the C58 still has fairly manageable recoil with these attachments locked and loaded. You’ll still be able to beam targets from afar no different from usual.

While both the muzzle and barrel are the best options when it comes to increasing the C58’s DPS, we recommend utilizing the Field Agent Foregrip to bolster the weapon’s recoil, making it easy to track targets from a distance.

Rounding off the loadout is the STANAG 55 Rnd magazine – an absolute must for those that wish to get those all-important squad wipes.

  • Secondary: MP40
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Our C58 class utilizes all the standard meta Warzone perks. Both EOD and Amped keep you safe from any explosive blasts, while also giving increased speed when swapping to your secondary weapon.

Despite the C58’s high damage at close range, you’ll still want to switch to a fast-firing secondary. Fortunately, Overkill enables you to bring the infamous MP40.

Once you’ve secured your core loadout, we recommend grabbing Ghost as soon as you can. This will keep you hidden from any prying eyes and help to increase your survivability in Verdansk. 

Lastly, both the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor will give you the tools needed to track down nearby enemies and deliver explosive kills with Semtex.

If you’re considering using the C58 in Warzone, then we’ve got you covered with some general tips:

  • Depending on your preferred playstyle, you’ll want to choose your second weapon for this class carefully. If you favor an aggressive playstyle, using an SMG like the MP40 is a solid choice. However, if you prefer ranged gunfights, equipping a sniper rifle such as the Swiss K31 would be your best bet.
  • When using the C58, you should prioritize keeping your gunfights at medium to long-range. At close ranges, weapons like shotguns and SMGs will have an inherent advantage.

Alternative to the C58 loadout

The STG44 is extremely strong at medium-range.

If the C58 just doesn’t fit your style of play, consider using the STG44 as an alternative AR that deals a hefty amount of damage at medium to long range.

This weapon has been hailed as one of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone Pacific Season 1. Perfect for players who want a versatile gun with a relatively manageable recoil pattern, just make sure you’re running an SMG alongside it just in case you get pushed by an enemy squad.
