Season 3 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 introduced two new weapons into the game, the FJX Imperium sniper rifle and the Cronen Squall battle rifle. The FJX Imperium is a recreation of the classic Intervention from the original MW2 while the Cronen Squall is a fully and semi-automatic bullpup rifle that is primarily proficient in long range engagements. Because of this, the Cronen Squall is a perfect fit for Warzone 2, as players need a long range loadout to knock off enemies from a far distance.
In its base form, the Cronen Squall has quite a bit of recoil, so players will want to mitigate that when they are crafting its loadout. However, the base damage for the battle rifle is strong, so players will at least be able to take out enemies quickly if they can land their shots.
This is made much simpler by using the Cronen Squall’s strongest set of attachments for Warzone 2.
Best Cronen Squall loadout in Warzone 2
- Muzzle: Polarfire-S
- Barrel: LR6.8 22″
- Optic: AIM OP-V4
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Ammunition: 6.8 High Velocity
This is a standard loadout for a long range weapon in Warzone 2, but it’s one that serves the Cronen Squall quite well. Players see an immediate damage range increase by using the Polarfire-S muzzle and the LR6.8 22″ barrel. These attachments also provide a boost to recoil control as well as bullet velocity. Speaking of recoil control and bullet velocity, the FTAC Ripper 56 and 6.8 High Velocity attachments increase those stats as well. Finally, the AIM OP-V4 is the perfect scope for mid-long range gunfights, which is where players want to do most of their fighting with the Cronen Squall in Warzone 2.
