At the beginning of Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4, there was no better weapon than the MG 82 light machine gun. It was versatile, dealt a ton of damage and featured a killer loadout that could dominate at all ranges. Since it was a new weapon, though, players knew its dominance wasn’t going to last. Like clockwork, Raven Software nerfed the MG 82 once in Season 4 and then again in the Reloaded update.
Some players might see these nerfs and think the MG 82 is no longer worth using in Warzone. However, the LMG is still viable in the battle royale among the higher tiers of weapons. Though, its loadout needs some alterations to compensate for the nerfs received in Season 4.
Best MG 82 loadout in Warzone
The biggest asset the MG 82 carries over from other LMGs in Warzone is its versatility. It possesses great mobility for its weapon class while also keeping the solid damage range and accuracy LMGs are known for. Although, the MG 82’s mobility was the basis for its nerf in Season 4 Reloaded.
Raven Software nerfed the MG’s ADS speed, making it feel slightly more clunky. However, this can be rectified with the recommended loadout for the LMG.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 16.4″ Task Force
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap
The biggest change to the loadout is the Serpent Wrap in exchange for no ammunition attachment. While having 125 rounds and above is a nice benefit, the Serpent Wrap increases ADS speed by 25%.
Following that attachment swap, the rest of the loadout is fairly basic. The Agency Suppressor, Task Force barrel and Field Agent Grip are all staple attachments in Warzone. The muzzle and barrel increase damage range and bullet velocity while the grip stabilizes the vertical and horizontal recoil.
Finally, the Axial Arms 3x is the best overall scope for rifles and LMGs. It’s a perfect zoom for medium to long-range engagements, which is where players should live with this MG 82 loadout in Warzone.
