Searching for the best MG82 loadout in Warzone? The battle royale game is no stranger to powerful LMGs, but the MG 82 is a particularly strong option in Warzone Season 5. If you’re looking for an off-meta LMG pick, the MG 82 has very little recoil which makes it one of the best weapons up close and at long range.

What makes the MG 82 an interesting pick on Caldera and Rebirth Island is its accuracy across all distances. Compared to ’80s Verdansk which featured large open spaces, Caldera has been designed for close to medium range encounters, the perfect range for an LMG. The MG 82 allows you to pick off enemies from a distance due to its lack of recoil, giving you free rein to pick any weapon for your secondary slot.

Best MG 82 loadout attachments

The best Call of Duty Warzone MG 82 loadout is:

  • Agency Suppressor
  • 16.4” Task Force
  • Field Agent Grip
  • Fast Mag
  • Visiontech 2x

The MG 82’s base bullet velocity is great, but we can take it further by adding on the Agency Suppressor muzzle. This increases the bullet velocity, and effective damage range, and stabilises the vertical recoil control at the cost of aim down sight speed and aiming stability. The muzzle also provides sound suppression, which can be vital in the late stages of the game.

We can improve this weapon’s time-to-kill even further with the 16.4” Task Force barrel. Not only does this stabilise the vertical and horizontal recoil control, but both the effective damage range and bullet velocity are drastically increased. This does significantly reduce the mobility of the gun, so remember to swap out your secondary weapon before committing to any firefights.

The Field Agent Grip is a staple for most LMGs as it greatly improves the horizontal and vertical recoil control, allowing you to shoot enemies from medium range comfortably. Unfortunately, this attachment also negatively impacts the LMG’s mobility, though as we mentioned before, you shouldn’t walk with it out in the open anyway.

We’ve gone for the Fast Mag as there is no downside to picking it over the standard 90-round magazine that comes preloaded with the gun. The Fast Mag improves reload quickness without any drawbacks, perfect for those opportunities where a third party manages to flank your squad. For the optic, we’ve selected the Visiontech 2x which is excellent at close to medium range.
