Warzone 2 expert uncovers deadly rifle that’s being “slept-on” despite buff
If you’re looking to run something a little different in Warzone 2, you may want to consider WhosImmortal’s “slept-on” SO-14 class that absolutely fries enemies – especially on Ashika Island.
Over the last few weeks, the meta in Warzone 2 has undergone some significant changes, and that’s only continued with the Season 3 Reloaded update.
While the new update, which brought about a huge set of weapon balancing changes, saw the ISO Hemlock rise back to the top of the pile in terms of pick rate, it has also shone a light on some of the previously underused weapons.
As a result, Warzone 2 gurus like WhosImmortal have been highlighting these previously off-meta picks as being totally viable these days. And that now includes the SO-14, which is a “perfect” choice for those players who just stick to Ashika Island games.
Best SO-14 loadout for Warzone 2
That’s right, the Battle Rifle – which has had a rock bottom pick rate according to WZRanked for quite some time – is actually a viable option in-game thanks to its buff in Season 3 Reloaded. Though, you do need to have it on full-auto for shots.
“You put this thing on full-auto mode then you are going to shred. Especially here on Ashika Island where the guns are a lot more mid-ranged based,” the YouTuber said in his May 15 video about the gun, as he noted it’s a bit of an experimental case right now.

Though, he did continue to hype it up in a big way. “A slept-on weapon that can absolutely fry in the right hands. Master the recoil, master the feel of this weapon and you are going to be set” WhosImmortal continued.

As noted, the SO-14 has hardly been used in Warzone 2, with it coming in with a 0.1% pick rate as the 55th most-used gun in the battle royale.
It does have a bit of a kick with recoil, but if you give it a try, you might just find that it suits your playstyle.
