Despite the ever-changing meta in Call of Duty: Warzone 2, some players simply want to use what they find comfortable to them. This doesn’t have to be a meta weapon, or even a particularly strong weapon for that matter. One of the comfortable weapons that some players might be instantly drawn to is the Kastov 545, which is another version of the AK-47 assault rifle. The Kastov 545 isn’t one of the strongest assault rifles in Warzone 2, but it does have an intriguing loadout that can make it viable on Al Mazrah.
The Kastov 545 and its two brothers, the Kastov 762 and Kastov-74u, are some of the most popular weapons in Modern Warfare 2. This is mainly because of their appearance, which is instantly recognizable to most Call of Duty fans. Compared to its family members, the Kastov 545 is a weaker, more accurate assault rifle. However, with some key attachments on its loadout, the Kastov 545 can actually be a serviceable damage-driven AR in Warzone 2.
To see the full loadout for the Kastov 545 in Warzone 2, keep reading below.
Best Kastov 545 loadout in Warzone 2
When players use the Kastov 545, they will find that it has little recoil and an average fire rate. However, without any attachments, the 545 will have difficulty killing opponents without putting an entire magazine into them. While the Kastov 545 can’t kill as fast as other ARs, we can equip some specific attachments to help the AR kill slightly quicker.
- Muzzle: Sakin Tread-40
- Barrel: IG-K30 406mm
- Optic: Schlager 3.4x
- Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
- Magazine: 60 Round Mag
The main attachment players will want to equip is the IG-K30 406mm barrel, which increases damage range and recoil control. The Sakin Tread-40 and VX Pineapple further boost recoil control while the 60 Round Mag is in place to ensure players can stay in gunfights for longer without having to reload. Finally, the Schlager 3.4x scope is the preferred optic for mid-range gunfights in Warzone 2.
