The best Warzone 2 FTAC Recon loadout

If you want the best Warzone 2 FTAC Recon loadout, you’re first going to have to increase the mag size, as this powerful weapon can fire a lethal punch, but it’s not always completely reliable.

Because of the long ranges of this battle royale game, we’ve added attachments that improve the gun’s time-to-kill stats, focusing on recoil, damage range, and bullet velocity. Mag size might not be that important in most FPS games, but it’s essential in Warzone 2, so we’re adding to that too while ensuring that with these improvements each bullet counts.

Here is the best Warzone 2 FTAC Recon loadout:

  • Magazine: 15 Round Mag
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Muzzle: Shred CP90
  • Barrel: Bull Rider 16.5”
  • Optic: VLK 4.0 Optic

The FTAC Recon has excellent damage output, but only a ten-round mag – by far the most limited among the best Warzone 2 guns – so we first want to extend that using the 15 Round Mag. The main focus of this build is to improve TTK, so the Bull Rider 16.5″ barrel is perfect for this loadout, increasing bullet velocity, damage range, recoil control, and hip fire accuracy.

Next, we’ve gone for the Shred CP90 muzzle to improve vertical and horizontal recoil. To complement the recoil stability, we’ve gone for the FSS OLE-V laser which improves aim down sight speed, sprint-to-fire speed, and aiming stability. The FTAC Recon can be a little slow to react if you’re facing an SMG or AR, so the ADS speed is vital to bring this gun up to scratch.

Finally, we’ve gone for the VLK 4.0 Optic for a clear view and mid-long range build, but find whichever optic you feel comfortable using. You could swap the optic for the Demo Precision Elite Factory stock, to further improve recoil control, but feel free to tinker with this. It’s not the most mobile of its weapon class, but this setup makes for a powerful, long-range Warzone 2 battle rifle.

That’s everything we’ve got for the best Warzone 2 FTAC Recon loadout. For more of the best Warzone 2 loadout drops, here are our guides to the best Warzone 2 Kastov 74u loadout, best Warzone 2 STB 556 loadout, and everything we know about the Warzone 2 map this year.
