In Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare, the right loadout can drastically improve any player’s gameplay. With the game’s new weapons, constantly shifting meta, and a wide selection of guns and attachments it can often be hard to know how to build each gun.
While a majority of players who enter Call of Duty: Warzone tend to take an SMG or Assault Rifle primary, there are several reasons that an LMG may fare better. Aside from its range advantage, the gun’s massive ammo capacity and heavy damage can easily take on entire squads of enemies between reloads. Still, the only way to make an LMG shine is to use a powerful build in the right situation.
The PKM is an interesting LMG that, with the right build, can go toe to toe with Kilo 141 and Cr-56 AMAX Warzone builds. The gun is deceptively strong and can take on mid-range and long-range enemies, easily making it a powerful suppressive tool against long-range encounters.
- Barrel – 25.9″ Heavy Barrel
- Optic – Canted Hybrid
- Stock – Forge TAC Stalker
- Rear Grip – Rubberized Grip Tape
- Underbarrel – Bipod
Many players consider this Call of Duty: Warzone build to be a walking gun turret. The bipod offers maximum accuracy when prone or crouching, while the heavy barrel increases bullet speed and damage. This weapon quickly becomes a low-recoil long-range monster that deals with heavy damage at distance. For the long-range and mid-range battles of Warzone, this weapon works best when a player mounts up and holds their ground.
- Barrel – 18.2″ Compact Barrel
- Laser – Tac Laser
- Stock – No Stock
- Underbarrel – Mercenary Foregrip
- Ammo – 150 Round Belt
The main drawbacks for LMGs in multiplayer tend to be ADS times and reload situations. By removing the stock, players are able to increase the mobility of the weapon, and the 150-round belt decreases reload frequency. The tac laser and Mercenary Foregrip accentuate the hip-fire capacity of the weapon, while the compact barrel makes it a 3-4 shot kill in every situation. Considering this is a rapid-fire weapon, this gun can potentially mow down enemies looking for a fight.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
