The best Warzone 2 STB 556 loadout

Looking for the best Warzone 2 STB 566 loadout? The STB 556 is one of the best assault rifles in MW2 that somehow handles like an SMG which makes it perfect for close encounters. The stock version of the STB 556 already has excellent recoil, so we’ve used attachments that improve the gun’s accuracy, bullet velocity, and mobility. This weapon is surprisingly effective on Al Mazrah, especially when used alongside long range weapons like sniper rifles, marksman rifles, and battle rifles – which are a new addition to the battle royale game.

Here is the best STB 556 loadout in Warzone 2:

  • Muzzle: Dark KX30
  • Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity

For the muzzle, we’ve opted for the Dark KX30 for muzzle flash concealment and recoil stabilisation, while choosing the Phase-3 Grip for improved hip fire accuracy, aiming idle stability, and again that added recoil stabilisation. The VLK LZR 7MW laser improves the sprint to fire speed, aim down sight speed, and aiming stability, while the Cronon Mini Red Dot is our preferred optic, though you could swap this out for another attachment if needed.

Finally, we’ve gone for increased bullet velocity using the 5.56 High Velocity ammunition which sacrifices some damage range, but as mentioned you want to use this gun loadout in close-to-mid range fights. With all the upgrades made to the STB 556’s mobility, you should be able to destroy any nearby enemies with ease.

That’s the best Warzone 2 STB 556 loadout, when kitted out correctly, it is most definitely in the conversation for best Warzone 2 AR.
