Ever since the beginning of Call of Duty: Warzone 2, there has been one submachine gun atop the weapon meta: the Fennec 45. With its high fire rate, low recoil, and terrific damage range, no other SMG could come close to the Fennec’s output. However, in the Season 2 weapon balancing update, the developers at Raven Software made an effort to change that. The devs nerfed the Fennec 45 fairly hard, which has the status of its best loadout in limbo in Warzone 2 Season 2. So much so, that players are considering the Lachmann Sub over the Fennec early on in the new season.

The changes to the Fennec 45 were pretty much all nerfs. There was a small buff, but the nerfs definitely overshadow it. You can see the exact balancing for the Fennec 45 below:

  • Decreased damage overall
  • Decreased headshot damage
  • Added minimum damage against armor

The decreases in both overall damage and headshot damage really harm the Fennec 45’s ability to kill enemies quickly in Warzone 2. However, players that still want to use the Fennec 45 should throw on its best attachments for Season 2. To see the full loadout for the Fennec 45 in Warzone 2, keep reading below.

Best Fennec 45 Loadout in Warzone 2 Season 2

  • Barrel: Fennec Covert Force
  • Rear Grip: Fennec Rubber Grip
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
  • Magazine: Fennec Mag 45

The most important attachment on this loadout is the Fennec Cover Force barrel, which adds some much-needed damage range to the Fennec. The Fennec Rubber Grip and Phase-3 Grip provide extra recoil control while the VLK LZR 7mW laser boosts the Fennec’s mobility drastically. Finally, we have the Fennec Mag 45, which is vital given how quickly the Fennec runs out of bullets due to its high fire rate.
