Warzone 2 season 2 best loadouts: meta guns for resurgence on Ashika Island

Excited to jump into Season 2? Here are the best weapons to take into Ashika Island!

Warzone 2 Season 2 is out, which means you'll want to get the best loadout equipped and ready if you want a good shot at wins in Al Mazrah and Ashika Island.

While some weapons have been nerfed and touched up with the launch of season 2, many of the weapons that are top of the pile before the season are still mighty powerful in season 2. We'll continue updating this guide as the meta develops.

Below, we’ve broken down each of the best loadouts in Warzone 2 and broken down each weapon's best attachments so you can go into matches with the optimal setup.

Check out the trailer for Warzone 2 season 2 here!

Warzone 2 best loadouts

As a general rule, it's a good idea to have one weapon for long-range fights, and one for shot range fights. As such, all the following loadouts have this shared quality. If you do prefer a pistol, rocket launcher, or even a melee weapon that's fine! Simply slot it into the short-range slot and you should be good to go.

You can also mix and match if you're not feeling a certain weapon, or if you've not ground out all the necissary attachments for it yet. All the featured weapons are decent enough to take you far in Warzone, just make sure you've covering all your bases when it comes to effective range. You don't want to be stuck without an answer to up close and personal fights.

It's worth noting that for all of these loadouts, we've listed two primary weapons. As such, we recommend taking a perk package with Overkill to get these at once. If you want to get different perks later, you'll need to work for another loadout at either a buy station, a stronghold, and loadout drops. Once Warzone season 2 drops, you'll be able to customise your own perk packages, so it'll be far less annoying to get the guns and perks you want.

Finally, while we stand by these picks as the best weapons you can use in Warzone, don't feel bad about throwing in some alternative gun you like the feel of. Ultimately if you're a shotgun fiend and feel like you're not having as much fun without you favourite boom stick, slap it on and have a blast.

RPK and Vasnev 9K loadout

The two guns that are damn good in Warzone season 2 are the RPK and the Vasnev-9K. The RPK remains stupidly good, as it survived nerfs in spite of it's long standing dominance over season 1. In long ranged fights, you can't go far astray with its massive damage and ease of handling. The Vasnev 9K covers up your close range fights, with a super fast fire rate and high damage.

MCPR 300 and Lachmann Sub loadout

For those who don't like an assault rifle primary, instead leaning towards a sniper rifle, this loadout fuffils your desire with the MCPR This weapon can one shot players now thanks to the pumped up incendiary rounds, as can many of the other powerful sniper rifles available. That being said, the MCPR gets the pick in this guide due to its relative ease of use. For the close ranged option, we're sticking with the Lachmann Sub here. With the nerfs to the Fennec 45, it's a must use for those in love with close-range situations.

ISO Hemlock and Basilisk loadout

Our final recommended loadout is one that doesn't require an Overkill perk and still remains strong thanks to the ISO Hemlock — a major winner with the launch of Season 2 of Warzone. The ISO Hemlock is an absolute powerhouse in long ranged fights, able to keep up with many of the pre-existing greats. In addition, with the Basilisk sidearm, you'll be able to move faster in tense situations. Just be sure to land your shots with this hand cannon, otherwise any SMG will light you up.

KV Broadside and SP-X 80 loadout

Here's a fun loadout, featuring some big winners from the Season 2 Warzone update. Any oppurnity to use a shotgun while its in meta is plenty of fun and well worth doing, so trust us when we say the the KV Broadside is something you've got to try. Not only does it blow away anyone near you on Ashika Island, it's an easy gun to use. The SP-X 80 is a cool sniper too, one that takes a while to get into shape with the right attachments to hugely powerful once you do. Slap on Incendiary rounds and it'll rip apart anyone you hit.
