The light machine guns in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 are quite powerful in Season 2, competing with assault rifles in every facet of the game. Since the game was released, the RPK has been the most popular LMG, with the RAAL MG coming in behind it. However, since the Season 2 update, the Sakin MG38 has been considered the strongest LMG in Warzone 2, featuring a hard-hitting and accurate loadout. Moreover, the RPK’s nerf and a buff to the Sakin gave way for the new LMG to overtake the previous king. While the Sakin was nerfed in Season 2 Reloaded, that hasn’t been enough to diminish its overall strengths.
The Sakin MG38 had been underrated in both Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 up until Season 2. This is primarily because of the other LMGs in the game, but also because the Sakin MG38 isn’t a flashy weapon by any means. It’s a basic LMG that can do a little bit of everything. Of course, after the Season 2 update, all of its stats were improved, and now it does everything extremely well. With the right attachments, the Sakin MG38 can be a player’s best friend on Al Mazrah.
To see the full loadout for the Sakin MG38 in Warzone 2, keep reading below.
Best Sakin MG38 loadout in Warzone 2
Since the Sakin MG38 is a heavy light machine gun, we won’t spend much time trying to improve its mobility. Instead, we’ll stick with boosting its existing strengths, which include damage and recoil control.
- Muzzle: ZLR Talon 5
- Barrel: 20″ Bruen Silver Series Barrel
- Optic: Aim OP-V4
- Rear Grip: STIP-40 Grip
- Underbarrel: Bruen Warrior Grip
The loadout starts with the ZLR 5 Talon and 20″ Bruen Silver Series Barrel, both of which boost damage range, recoil control, and bullet velocity. Those attachments are followed by the STIP-40 Grip which also increases recoil control. The Bruen Warrior Grip maximizes the Sakin’s recoil control while also improving hip-fire control for any close-range gunfights. Finally, the optic in place is the Aim OP-V4, which is a mid-range scope that’s perfect for picking off opponents at most ranges in Warzone 2.
