Best Warzone EM2 loadout

Warzone Season 6 is here, and it’s introduced a brand-new Assault Rifle: the EM2. This powerful new weapon is an excellent choice, so we’ve got the attachments and Perks you should use to make the best Warzone EM2 loadout.

As with all new seasons of Warzone, there are some new weapons to try out. Season 5 brought the Call of Duty community both the TEC-9 SMG and the EM2 Assault Rifle.

Players have quickly realized the EM2’s power. Even though it’s slow, it packs a serious punch. Once you’ve got the enemy in your sights, it’s simply game over for them.

We’ve got the attachments and an overpowered new Perk to make the best Warzone EM2 loadout and maximize this Assault Rifle’s potential in Warzone Season 6.

Best Warzone EM2 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 25.8″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: 40 Rnd (Solos, Duos, Trios) / STANAG 50 Rnd (Quads)

The EM2 doesn’t have any unique attachments, so that you can use the meta build for any Cold War Assault Rifle. This maximizes its range while also reigning in its recoil.

To start the best Warzone EM2 loadout, the Agency Suppressor and 25.8″ Task Force barrel are perfect for each other. They vastly increase any Assault Rifle’s range and also help with recoil control for those longer ranges.

Although the EM2 comes with a scope attached, the Axial Arms 3x optic is perfect for the best Warzone EM2 loadout to dominate Verdansk’s long lines of sight. But, you can opt for the default if you want another attachment for the best Warzone EM2 loadout.

Then, the Field Agent Grip majorly helps with recoil again, which is necessary to control the EM2. And the STANAG 50 Rnd mag is perfect for taking down multiple targets in Quads, but the 40 Rnd is enough for any other mode.

Best Perks to use with Warzone EM2 class

Warzone Combat Scout perk
  • Perk 1: Cold Blooded
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

For the Perk 1 slot, Cold Blooded has become highly viable again. Its main benefit is that it counters the Combat Scout Perk, which we’ve included in the third slot.

For Perk 2, Ghost is still the best option. Getting spotted by a UAV or Heartbeat Sensor often means certain death, so there’s no real reason to deviate from the meta here.

And finally, Season 5’s new Combat Scout Perk is arguably overpowered. After you damage an enemy, they glow like they’ve been hit by a Snapshot grenade. And not only that, they’re pinged too. This Perk is essentially wallhacks, and many players will likely run it.

Most recent EM2 buffs and nerfs in Warzone

This Assault Rifle received one significant nerf in the Warzone Season 6 update patch notes, which increased the weapon’s overall recoil, so players may notice that there is some extra kick when using the best Warzone EM2 loadout compared to Season 5.

How to unlock the EM2

Best Warzone EM2 loadout

This Assault Rifle was included in the free Season 5 Battle Pass, so players could Tier 15 and had it available to level up and make the best Warzone EM2 loadout.

However, with Season 5 having ended, players must complete one of two different unlock challenges to unlock this weapon to make the best Warzone EM2 loadout. You can find these unlock challenges below:

  • Warzone/ Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer – Using Assault Rifles, rapidly kill 2 or more players in 15 different completed matches.
  • Black Ops Cold War Zombies – Using Epic quality Assault Rifle or better, Eliminate 1,000 enemies.

Best alternatives

If you haven’t unlocked the EM2 yet or want to use something different, there are plenty of viable ARs. Modern Warfare’s Grau 5.56 has made a return thanks to recent updates, and the Krig 6 is laser beam at range.

The QBZ-83 was also Season 4’s most underrated weapon, and this remains true in Season 6, so it’s well worth giving it a try.

FaZe Swagg reveals “overpowered” Warzone Pacific Welgun loadout

FaZe Swagg has revealed the perfect loadout attachments to make the brand-new Welgun SMG “overpowered” in Season 1.

FaZe star Kris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson tested out Warzone’s brand-new Welgun SMG, calling it “top-tier” and building an “overpowered” loadout for it.

Warzone Pacific’s mid-Season 1 update brought a ton of buffs and nerfs to fan-favorite weapons, but it also brought the new Welgun SMG.

The Gunsmith system allows the Welgun to be built for a number of different playstyles, and top streamer FaZe Swagg has revealed how to make it “overpowered” with the right loadout attachments.

Warzone’s meta received a significant shake-up with Warzone Season 1’s midseason update, with the popular STG44 getting a healthy buff and the Bren getting taken down a peg.

But the one weapon standing out is the brand-new Welgun. In a YouTube video titled “The new Welgun SMG is overpowered in Warzone,” FaZe Swagg explains why.

Using the Welgun along with the STG, Swagg dropped 30 kills, helping his squad rack up over a hundred kills in Caldera. “This gun is top-tier, no question,” explained Swagg. “And overall, 100% you should unlock it.”

Swagg said the Welgun “melts with the right build,” so we’ve got his full class set up below.

FaZe Swagg “overpowered” Welgun loadout

Swagg’s YouTube video doesn’t reveal his full Welgun loadout, so here are the attachments he was running during his January 13 stream.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: 120mm Gawain Short
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 48 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Unmarked
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Swagg boosted the Welgun’s fire rate by combining the Recoil Booster and 120mm Gawain Short barrel, allowing it to kill enemies much faster. And he discovered that running iron sights gives you a reflex, so he opted for the Slate Reflector instead.

For magazine and ammo, Swagg ran the 7.62 Gorenko 48 Round Mags to hold extra bullets and the Hollow Point ammunition which increases the damage dealt to limbs, making it much more forgiving.

The rest of the attachments are to improve the Welgun’s mobility and accuracy, with the Unmarked Perk which helps to conceal your position on the mini map.

CoD devs respond to frustrations over performance in Warzone & Vanguard

The Warzone and Vanguard devs have officially responded to the abundance of issues with a statement to the community.

call of duty vanguard & warzone

Call of Duty issued a response to all the performance issues players are currently experiencing in both Warzone and Vanguard.

Along with the mid-season update for Warzone and Vanguard, which introduced loads of new content such as the Welgun and a variety of buffs and nerfs, the devs have now issued a detailed response to the community’s frustrations.

There have been a lot of issues in Warzone and Vanguard since the two games were linked, but it’s great to actually get some detailed communication from the devs in response to the issues that players have been experiencing.

Here’s what they had to say.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 1

In Call of Duty‘s latest tweet titled “A message to our community,” the developers conveyed just how hard the team is working at providing fixes to a variety of issues.

The post contained details of the latest implemented changes and known issues being worked on for both Warzone and Vanguard.

In the short message, the developers make it clear that the team is “hard at work addressing the issues that are being experienced across Vanguard, Warzone, and Modern Warfare. Updates are being deployed as quickly as possible.”

When it comes to Warzone some of the issues mentioned as ones that they are working on include:

  • Console performance
  • Invisible skins
  • Buy Stations

These issues, especially the Buy Station freezing problems and console performance have been at the center of recent player frustrations in the community.

Just this week players were clowning the number of issues on console, so it’s great to get confirmation that the devs are working on fixes.

As for Vanguard, there have been quite a few issues that players have been disappointed with, especially as recent updates haven’t exactly eased player frustrations with Incendiary Grenades.

The post mentioned an abundance of issues that the dev team is working on:

  • Weapons & Equipment
    • Shotgun nerfs and smoke reduction.
  • Killstreaks
    • Attack Dog fixes.
  • Perks
  • Modes
    • Accuracy of Quick Play filters and diversity of maps.
  • Matchmaking
    • Party-disconnect issue
  • Zombies

It’s clear that the Call of Duty developers are working on having better communication with the players. This is definitely a step towards that, but up next is for these updates to be complete.


We’ll be sure to update the community on when these fixes have been issued. For now, check out why players are praising Warzone’s latest playlist update.

Warzone devs secretly changed a Perk and nobody noticed

The Warzone devs made a slight change to one of the Perks, which almost went completely unnoticed until players recently picked up on it.

Players have picked up on a change to one of Warzone’s Perks that barely anyone noticed, which some are stating is due to the stale Perk meta.

With the mid-season update for Warzone Pacific Season 1, you’d think players would be focussing on the new content such as the Welgun SMG, playlist changes, and buffs and nerfs.

However, players have picked up on a change to one of Warzone’s Perks that went completely unnoticed since the Vanguard integration, which may not be a surprise to players when they find out what Perk it is.

warzone perk 3 spotter

Reddit user Cream-Shpee highlighted the Perk change over on the Warzone subreddit with the title: “The Perks meta is so stale nobody’s even noticed that Spotter got renamed.”

Spotter, now named Engineer, isn’t the most popular of Perks in Warzone, especially as the Perk 3 category is dominated by Amped and Combat Scout. This is most likely the reason players haven’t noticed the name change, or as the Redditor puts it, players didn’t notice because the “Perks meta is so stale.”

Although it isn’t a massive difference, it’s still pretty hilarious that not many players actually realized the name had been changed.

One player agrees with the Perk meta being stale, stating “I reckon you could remove 70% of the perks and no one would even notice.”

It’s a shame that some Perks hardly get picked, as most of them actually offer some interesting gameplay changes. However, it’s difficult to pick Perks that just aren’t as strong as the ones everybody else in the lobby is using.

Perhaps we will see some changes to Perks in Warzone Pacific’s future to spice up the meta.
