Best STG44 Warzone Loadout

In a game where Assault Rifles have been incredibly strong, currently the competition in its class couldn’t be closer. With the likes of FFAR, FARA 83 and others providing precision and high damage, every player is spoilt for choice. However, now more than ever, AR’s must be able to compete short range against SMGs and the occasional Shotgun. For this reason, we have chosen the most mobile AR in building our best STG44 Warzone loadout.

Important to note that this weapon received both a headshot and body damage multiplier upgrade. Additionally, both its max damage and minimum damage has been increased. This on top of our attachments and perks will create one of the best loadouts produced by us. For future reference, this has a strong potential to become a regular warzone tournament loadout.

Get Levelled Up

The most annoying part of building a loadout is the levelling up stage. Fortunately, the base version of the STG44 can deal a good amount of damage, whilst also being mobile. Additionally, remember there is a high rate of flinch movement when in a gunfight. Despite this, you can use other attachments until you unlock everything which should negate that issue. With this being a Vanguard weapon, you will have to reach level 70 to unlock everything.


For the Rebirth strategy, equip perks Double Time, Point Man, and Battle Hardened. In a hectic match you will be able to move quickly, whilst also having extra resistance to equipment. Point Man will award you extra XP for contracts. Next, drop in and start completing contracts. The more you complete consecutively, the larger your XP bonus will grow too. A recommendation on contracts would be supply runs, as they require less time and can lead you to fewer enemy conflicts.

On top of this, you can play Vanguard Multiplayer. Ship Haus 24/7 has a Double XP event across all features in game. With Vanguard also having the quickest rank up time despite the levels, it is something to keep in mind.

How each Attachment and Perk works together

With how unsteady the STG44 can be, we have found these attachments lower recoil, reduce flinch and provide a healthy damage boost. Our Muzzle choice will reduce that annoying recoil pattern, whilst the Barrel makes weapon control easier. Under Barrel also contributes towards accuracy. Both Stock and Rear Grip choices pad up flinch resistance, which now enables you to hold up in areas and fire consistently straight shots.

Our Optic choice can be changed to fit the map. We found Slate Reflector works best on Rebirth, whilst G16 2.5 works better on Caldera, the choice is yours. The Magazine and Ammunition type improves ADS time and bullet velocity, whilst both perks further increase ADS and resistance. The STG44 is a weak resistance weapon, but now you will be able to confidently take fights anywhere.

Double Time will increase your sprint duration, whilst Ghost can keep you off the grid. Additionally, if you want to hunker down in the map, Battle Hardened will lesser the impact of any equipment thrown your way. This will give you more time to react in those quick situations. Throwing Knife is used a lot due to its ability to finish a downed opponent sparring ammunition. The Flash is your get out of jail free card.

Recommended Playstyle

Now that you arguably have the strongest AR to date, with perks that make you a walking turret, both Caldera and Rebirth are viable options. If you choose Caldera, collect supply run contracts to earn a loadout quickly. It is best to get this done before the first loadout drop, as you avoid the rush. From here, follow the circle but try and attain a position within the area as soon as possible. Unlike other AR’s, the STG44 falls off over the extra long distances.

If you choose Rebirth, play the exact same way as mentioned before, but try to position on top of Prison. You can effectively hold a no-fly zone, as landing players can be quickly dispatched due to the STG44’s lethality. Our best STG44 Warzone loadout has the capability to make you a truly unmovable object in the field.
