Half Mag / Half Zine

You’ll never guess what? It’s time to sort out your custom classes and check out the latest entry into our Best Warzone 2 Loadout of the Week series. In last week’s Best Warzone 2 Loadout, we looked at one of the best Warzone 2 assault rifle options available. This time around, though, we’re going to be looking at close range options and how you can take advantage of one of the best Warzone 2 SMG weapons available right now in your next battle royale game.

To do this, we’re going to throw together a couple of builds from Warzone wizard and Call of Duty content creator ‘JGOD’ with a class setup built for close-quarters combat and shredding through Armor.

Starting out with the Bryson 800, one of the best Warzone 2 shotguns, JGOD has made the most of this gun’s huge damage output to create a weapon that can get one-shot kills on armoured enemies – something that is near-impossible with other weapons.

Sounds good, right? Well, here’s what you need to do if you want to create the best Warzone 2 Bryson 800 loadout yourself:

Muzzle: Bryson Improved Choke
Barrel: 29.5″ Rifled Barrel
Laser: Point-G3P 04
Stock: Sawed Off Mod
Guard: Demo X50 Tactical Pump
Not only does this barrel attachment actually improve this weapon’s visibility without the need for an optics attachment, it also offers you a tighter pellet spread when you’re ADS – something that will help you hit harder from a little further away.

The Sawed Off Mod stock attachment is also going to improve your mobility, something that should help you get up-close and personal with your enemies. As this is a pump action weapon, though, you just need to make sure you’re using cover cleverly if you want to make the most of this weapon.

As for the secondary weapon, we’ve gone for JGOD’s Lachmann Sub build – because it’s great. If you want to put together the best Warzone 2 Lachmann Sub loadout yourself, here’s what you need to know:

Muzzle: Singuard MKV
Laser: 1mw Quick Fire Laser
Optic: Slimline Pro
Stock: LM Stockless Mod
Magazine: 50 Round Drum
Again, JGOD has opted for a stock attachment that effectively removes this asset of the weapon in question – undoubtedly to improve this Lachmann Sub’s mobility and speed. He has also included the larger 50 Round Drum magazine attachment, something that’s going to offer you a lot of ammunition to tackle your enemies with.

The Slimline Pro optic attachment is also going to make this SMG viable at longer ranges and should help you manage the initial kick this weapon comes with.

When it comes to the rest of this loadout, you should be looking at one of the best Warzone 2 perk packages like Specter and throwables like Stun Grenades and Semtex. We know this means you’re going to have to buy your primary weapons seperately from a Buy Station, but it’s worthwhile if you’re heading into a tight spot for the final circle.
