The Grau 5.56 is one of the most recognizable weapons in all of Call of Duty: Warzone. It carries a huge reputation that originates from its overpowered days at the beginning of the battle royale. However, the Grau was so powerful that the devs heavily nerfed it through multiple weapon balancing updates. In Season 4, the Grau wasn’t considered to be in the meta whatsoever. With the recent Reloaded update, though, that might have changed.
Season 4 Reloaded included a huge round of weapon balancing and the Grau 5.56 was affected. However, unlike many other guns in the patch notes, the Grau was buffed instead of nerfed. Raven Software seems to have been a little more forgiving towards the once dominant assault rifle.
While the buff won’t return the Grau to its 2020 form, it might entice some players to give it another shot. For any player looking to try the Grau again, its recommended loadout is required knowledge.
Best Grau 5.56 loadout in Warzone
The Grau 5.56 was one of only a few ARs to receive a buff in Season 4 Reloaded. It might have received the biggest of the buffs, though. The developers increased the rifle’s minimum damage from 22 to 24. This puts the Grau 5.56 on par with more ARs in Warzone and could allow more players to try out its top loadout.
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
- Ammunition: 60 Round Mags
Furthering the Grau’s damage profile is the Monolithic Suppressor and Tempus 26.4″ Archangel barrel. Both attachments boost damage range with the former also suppressing sound when firing. Following those attachments is the Tac Laser, which improves ADS speed for close to medium range gunfights.
The last two attachments are the Commando Foregrip, which reduces recoil, and the 60 Round Mags. This loadout might not sit amongst Warzone’s Season 4’s top assault rifles but it may see the Grau 5.56 break into the meta as a niche weapon.
