Warzone expert IceManIsaac has shared his “no recoil” UGM-8 loadout for Season 4, claiming that the new LMG is so powerful it’s “going to be a problem” in Caldera, Rebirth Island, and Fortune’s Keep. 

The long-awaited Season 4 of Warzone dropped on June 22, bringing a host of changes to the Call of Duty battle royale.

Among the more typical weapon adjustments and bug fixes, Fortune’s Keep came as the game’s new Resurgence environment, a small map in the vein of Rebirth Island designed to bring yet more close-range chaos to Warzone.

On the weapons front, the UGM-8 and Marco 5 dropped as new additions; the former a hefty LMG and the latter a mobile SMG. Now, according to Warzone expert IceManIsaac, the UGM-8 could be the dominant gun going forwards.

In his June 25 YouTube video, Isaac outlined his ten go-to loadouts for Season 4, claiming that data analysis has created a number of perfect classes.

The first is a “no-recoil” UGM-8 loadout, making the Vanguard LMG into a stable turret.

In fact, Isaac claimed it’s so strong that it’s “going to be a problem” in Season 4, and could come to dominate the season in a way we’ve seen weapons like the Grau and Bruen do in past eras.

As you’d expect, the UGM-8 loadout thrives at longer ranges and being in a well-established position. Running and gunning, as is the case with all LMGs, is not advised. The full loadout is detailed below:

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Bernard XL214 736mm
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Mercier WT Ancre
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 125 Round
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
  • Perk: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

Because of its specialty being longer ranges, players will need to equip an SMG secondary to ensure they’re covered for gunfights at shorter ranges. For that, there’s no better option than the powerful Marco 5, which also dropped with Season 4.

Whether Raven has nerfs lined up is another matter but, for now, drop in and dominate with the best Season 4 has to offer.
