The C58 arrived in Warzone Season 4 and has since been one of the more popular Assault Rifle pics. Here’s a rundown on the best attachments so you can dominate the competition across Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Warzone’s Season 4 update brought with it three new guns, Gulag changes, and a new POI. There was certainly plenty of exciting content for players to get their hands on, but just like every update, it’s the weapons that have the biggest impact.

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 it’s still early days, the C58 is capable of delivering some pretty potent damage, making a standout rifle for much of the season. 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.

Best C58 loadout for Warzone

This C58 loadout has virtually no recoil.
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.5” Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

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 4 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 Serpent Wrap grip. This will help remove the sluggish ADS speed and enable you to effortlessly snap to opponents with the Axial Arms 3x


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

Best C58 setup (Perks & equipment)

C58 AR Call of Duty
The C58 joined Warzone’s arsenal in Season 4.
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: MAC-10
  • 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 lightning-fast MAC-10 SMG

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. 

How to unlock the C58 in Warzone

C58 Battle Pass
Activision / Treyarch
Unlocking the C58 shouldn’t take too long.

To unlock the C58 in Warzone and Cold War, players must reach Tier 31 of the Season Four Battle Pass. Once you’ve reached this level, you’ll be able to use the C58 in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War lobbies. 

Like previous seasons, the Battle Pass weapons can also be obtained by purchasing new weapon bundles. This is particularly useful if you don’t have time to grind through the Season 4 Battle Pass.

Alternative to the C58 loadout

AK-47 Black Ops Cold War
Activision / Treyarch
The Cold War AK-47 is particularly potent at the moment.

Another gun that has been creeping into the meta is none other than the AK-47. Not only have the recent Cold War weapon buffs given it even more power, but its methodical fire rate and high damage are similar to that of the C58. 


The only kicker here is that the AK-47 does have a much higher recoil pattern. However, if you can control this beast, then you’ll have an AR that can dish out some dizzying damage numbers.
