With Call of Duty: Warzone now allowing permanent Overkill on every loadout, players have a lot more freedom when it comes to selecting their secondary weapons. The submachine gun class features several options that are prime back-ups to a primary weapon, and the Striker is one of the more intriguing choices.

The Striker isn’t too popular in MW3 multiplayer, as there are a few other stronger choices in the SMG class. However, Warzone is usually a different story, and that seems to be the case with the Striker, as its recoil control pattern and mobility have proven to be quite useful on Urzikstan thus far in Season 1. To get the most out of the Striker, though, you need to use its strongest set of attachments.

To see the best loadout for the Striker in Warzone, keep reading my guide below.

Best Striker loadout in Warzone

  • Muzzle: Purifier Muzzle Brake
  • Barrel: Striker Recon Long Barrel
  • Stock: RB Crotalus Assault Stock
  • Magazine: 48 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip

This loadout is all about improving your overall recoil control with the Striker, as you want it to be a laser beam at mid-range. The Purifier Muzzle Brake and Sakin ZX Grip both accomplish this goal with aplomb, boosting recoil control and gun kick control across the board. Then, the RB Crotalus Assault Stock finishes the job by boosting the same stats.

For damage range purposes, I have the Striker Recon Long Barrel equipped, which also increases bullet velocity. Finally, the 48 Round Mag ensures you never have to reload too quickly during the middle of a fight and keeps your mobility high. You can equip a larger magazine, but that starts to drag down your movement speed, which isn’t something you want for a secondary weapon.

And with that, your loadout for the Striker is complete in Warzone. The Striker is one of the better SMGs you can use, but make sure you’re sticking to close range gunfights.
