There’s a wide variety of usable weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4, especially in the assault rifle category. From the ever-dominant NZ-41 to the close contenders in the Cooper Carbine and BAR, players have a plethora of options as of right now. However, there might not be a more versatile weapon in the assault rifle class than the AS44. The AS44 is a Vanguard AR that has one of the fastest fire rates in the entire game. It’s because of this fire rate, mixed with the AS44’s other traits, that it can be turned into a loadout that competes with close-range SMGs in Warzone.
The AS44’s high fire rate gives it one of the best time-to-kills in all of Warzone. Players can eliminate enemies in a matter of milliseconds with the right loadout. However, the AS44 starts to lose some of its potential at longer ranges due to its unstable recoil. For this reason, content creators have been tinkering with the AS44 to find a close-range loadout that turns it into a large SMG in Warzone.
To see the full loadout for the AS44 in Warzone Season 4, keep reading below.
Best close-range AS44 loadout in Warzone
As players might expect, this loadout will feature attachments that boost overall mobility in addition to fire rate and magazine size. Although, there are also some attachments that increase recoil control so players aren’t left totally powerless at medium range.
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Empress Falchion A
- Optic: G16 2.5x
- Stock: ZAC Skeletal
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: Subsonic
- Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
- Perk: Gung-Ho
- Perk 2: On Hand
This AS44 loadout really excels on the smaller maps of Fortune’s Keep and Rebirth Island. Having the damage range of an AR mixed with the fire rate and mobility of an SMG is a rare boon to have and it works perfectly for the close engagements of those maps.
