Are you looking for the best C58 assault rifle loadout in Warzone? Ever since Season 2, the developers have been careful about releasing powerful weapons that completely shift the meta. What tends to happen these days is a new weapon will be released, only to be buffed in the mid-season update. This didn’t happen with any of the weapons released in Season 4 as they were arguably too strong for the meta.
Unsurprisingly, the C58 received a nerf just after the launch of Season 5. The nerf increased the weapon’s recoil, decreased its max damage range by 7.4%, ADS speed by 3.4%, and bullet velocity by 8.1%. Despite these nerfs, it appears the assault rifle’s pick rate has largely been unaffected by the changes. The developers have made an effort to decrease the time-to-kill speed on every Warzone gun, and this nerf to the C58 appears to be following that same trend.
The C58 is a difficult weapon to get to grips with, but don’t let its high skill ceiling put you off. The last Warzone gun to have a high skill ceiling was the DMR 14, and we all know how that turned out. Here’s everything you need to know about the best C58 loadout in Warzone.

BEST WARZONE C58 LOADOUT
The best Warzone C58 loadout is:
- Agency Suppressor
- 18.7” Ranger
- Field Agent Grip
- Royal & Kross 4x
- STANAG 55 Rnd
The C58 has a bit of a learning curve due to its slow rate of fire. Unfortunately, there’s very little you can do to compensate for this using attachments, however, we can try to play to the weapon’s strengths. Right off the bat, we’ve gone for the Agency Suppressor to give the gun increased bullet velocity and a higher effective damage range. We also gain slightly improved vertical recoil control, and sound suppression to keep us off the radar when firing.
The improvements from the muzzle will turn the C58 into a deadly long distance weapon, perfect for picking people off behind cover. As for the barrel, the 18.7” Ranger is an excellent choice as it improves the weapon’s bullet velocity even further, and improves the vertical recoil control. The best part is that this only has an impact on the gun’s hip fire accuracy, and that’s something you won’t ever notice using the C58.
To give the C58 a little more help at range, the Field Agent Grip is the obvious choice for the underbarrel slot. While this does decrease the user’s mobility while firing and aiming down sights, it drastically improves both horizontal and vertical recoil control. Now that the C58 has significantly better recoil control, we’ve decided to pick the Royal & Kross 4x which may sound strange at first, but you need to give the weapon a try first as the accuracy is truly incredible.
Finally, the STANAG 55 Rnd ensures your weapon is fully stocked with bullets without causing any major inconveniences. You will have to account for slightly longer reload times, but that’s a given for an accurate assault rifle like the C58.
