CoD: Warzone 2.0 And DMZ Best Weapon Loadouts And Attachment Tuning

Read Time:6 Minute

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 arrived with the start of Season 1, and both battle royale and DMZ mode make use of Modern Warfare 2’s entire weapons and attachments pool. Customizing the optimal weapon loadout in the Gunsmith can sometimes be overwhelming, so here we recommend some of the best loadouts to use in Season 1 of Warzone 2.0 and DMZ.

Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0’s Gunsmith adds the ability to fine tune attachments to improve certain weapon stats, such as recoil control, bullet velocity, aim down sight speed, and more. This is done by adjusting two sliders towards one stat benefit or the other.

Weapon tuning feature in Warzone/MW2

It’s important to note that not every attachment needs to be tuned just for the sake of tuning, as every adjustment has a pro and con tradeoff, but tuning attachments like muzzles and barrels can be beneficial. For our recommended loadouts, we do include a few attachments worth fine tuning for each build.
