The Season 1 Reloaded update went live in December for Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. The update delivered some quality of life fixes, weapon balancing, and new content for both games, but the highlight was easily the Chimera assault rifle. If players have the Chimera unlocked, they can easily use its best loadout in Warzone 2.
In order for the Chimera to be viable as a meta assault rifle in Warzone 2, it will need stronger attachments than the ones that are unlocked early on. There are also strong Season 2 assault rifles that players will have to contend with in Warzone 2. Players need to make the Chimera into a long-range threat that can deal with the likes of the RPK, TAQ-56, and Kastov 762.
To see the full loadout for the Chimera in Warzone 2, keep reading below.
Best Chimera loadout in Warzone 2
The Chimera has an integrated suppressor, meaning it doesn’t really need a muzzle and is seen as a more mobile assault rifle. With this in mind, we’ve crafted the Chimera’s loadout to be an aggressive and fast AR that’s capable of taking on SMGs at close range.
- Laser: VLK LZR 7mW
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro/Slimline Pro/SZ Mini
- Stock: Ravage-8
- Magazine: 45 Round Mag
- Rear Grip: Bruen Flash Grip
Nearly every attachment on this loadout is meant to increase the Chimera’s aim down sight speed and sprint-to-fire time. The 45 Round Mag reduces these stats but gives players an extra 15 bullets in each clip. For the optic, we’ve gone with a classic red dot since players likely won’t be firing at targets too far away. The VLk LZR 7mW laser and Ravage-8 stock both give the Chimera a massive boost in mobility, as does the Bruen Flash Grip. While the Chimera can still excel at long range, this loadout is best served for Ashika Island or close-range fights on Al Mazrah.
