Want the best STG 44 loadout in Warzone? The arsenal of weapons to choose from keeps growing in this ever popular battle royale game, but the STG 44 remains as one of the best assault rifles thanks to its reliability. While guns from Black Ops Cold War entered Warzone with vastly different stats, the STG is one of the best Call of Duty Vanguard guns too.

So now we’re entering the next phase of Warzone, with Warzone 2 just around the corner, expect this jack-of-all-trades assault rifle to remain as one of the most popular picks. Since it’s immensely popular in multiplayer, a lot of players have already leveled it up fully too, so it’s a simple task to build the best STG 44 loadout in Warzone as you probably have most of the attachments already. As expected, the gun also features in our best Warzone loadouts guide, so head there for more meta picks.


The best Call of Duty Warzone STG 44 loadout is:

  • MX Silencer
  • VDD 760mm 05B
  • G16 2.5x
  • Konstanz Tactical
  • M1941 Hand Stop
  • 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
  • Lengthened
  • Taped Grip
  • Vital
  • On Hand

The STG 44 was hit with a few nerfs a couple of seasons ago, but as they say, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger because the STG 44 is still one of the best assault rifles in Warzone. This loadout will help you maximise the potential of this meta mainstay in the current iteration of the game.

The MX Silencer grants excellent recoil control and extends your damage range, so you can really compete at that all-important medium range using the STG 44.

The VDD 760mm 05B barrel transforms the STG 44 by trading mobility for improved recoil, accuracy, and damage range. Equipping this barrel makes the shots from the STG 44 feel different – the weapon is much easier to control as you don’t have to deal with as much scope sway. The stock STG 44 doesn’t feel like an inaccurate weapon, but after using this barrel, you won’t want to switch to anything else – it’s a laser beam.

Our loadout improves the STG 44’s damage range, but not enough to comfortably use a 3x scope at all times. As a result, we’ve gone for the G16 2.5x which is compact, offers just enough magnification to find targets, and helps with recoil control. To make you a little more mobile while firing, we’ve selected the Konstanz Tactical stock, which buffs your aim walking steadiness and movement speed. There’s a slight hit to the STG 44’s hip fire accuracy and sprint to fire speed, but it’s worth it so you can strafe more effectively.

Another staple attachment, the M1941 Hand Stop underbarrel is essential as it reduces the weapon’s hip fire accuracy to bolster its overall accuracy and recoil control. When it comes to picking the right magazine size, the 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags fit the bill perfectly. These magazines improve the STG 44’s movement speed, recoil, aim down sight speed, and fire rate – but with a cost to damage. It’s worth it though as the DPS is significantly higher with this mag.

You can’t go wrong by improving the STG 44’s bullet velocity stats, and the Lengthened ammo type does this without introducing any negative effects. The Taped Grip will aid your movement speed, readiness, and weapons swap speed, with no downsides to speak of – so it’s our preferred pick.

Definitely pick the Vital perk, because while it’s not quite as powerful as it once was, it still drastically reduces the time to kill speed on the STG 44. Our final perk is On Hand which allows you to whip between equipment and firing much faster and comes in clutch more times than it gets credit for.

And that’s all you need to build the best STG 44 loadout in Warzone. If you’re looking for the perfect secondary weapon to pair this deadly assault rifle with, we highly recommend our PPSh loadout. This SMG destroys enemies at close range, giving you the best of both worlds in a single loadout.
