The best ACR 6.8 loadout in XDefiant

A strong loadout for a powerful AR

The ACR 6.8 is one of the best all-around weapons in XDefiant. The classic assault rifle features virtually no weaknesses, sporting terrific damage range, recoil control, mobility, and fire rate. Of course, all weapons can be improved in one way or another, so today I will be looking at the overall best loadout for the ACR 6.8 in XDefiant. The loadout features the best attachments to maximize the ACR’s strengths while minimizing its weaknesses.

It can be somewhat confusing when picking attachments for weapons in XDefiant, as they all have their strengths and weaknesses. You also only have five attachment slots, so it can get frustrating to try and figure out which slots you should leave out. Below, you can see my picks for the best attachments on the ACR so you can skip the loadout-building and head straight into a match.

This loadout for the ACR is meant for players of all skill levels. It maximizes the rifle’s damage range while improving its mobility and keeping its accuracy relatively the same.

Some players have opted to go with the Removed Stock instead of the Padded to get more mobility. However, I personally found that choice to leave the ACR with too much recoil when firing. So, instead, I chose the Padded Stock to give players a little more accuracy while letting the Quick Draw Rear Grip handle any mobility improvements.

The rest of the loadout is extremely basic and offers players the best chance of winning a gunfight while using the ACR in XDefiant. Unless the developers at Ubisoft nerf the ACR 6.8, it will remain one of the strongest guns in the game, especially with this loadout.
