In Call of Duty: Warzone’s Season 4 update, the developers at Raven Software made a series of changes to some of the game’s most popular guns. This included the likes of the Armaguerra 43, H4 Blixen, and STG44. While other guns were buffed or only slightly nerfed, the STG44 was hit much harder than most weapons. It was arguably the top weapon in Season 3, thanks to its superior damage range, recoil control and mobility for an assault rifle. While it did drop off in popularity at the tail end of the season due to the rise of the NZ41, it was still regarded as one of Warzone’s top weapons. In order for the STG44 to keep that status in Season 4, players need to use its new best loadout in Warzone.
The main parts of the STG44’s loadout from Season 3 have remained intact, although the Season 3 patch still did a number on the STG44. Raven decreased the STG44’s minimum damage, muzzle velocity, headshot multiplier, and neck locational damage multiplier in one fell swoop. On top of those changes, the STG44 also had some of its best attachments nerfed. The 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags, VDD 760mm 05B barrel, and 8mm Kurz 60 Round Drum were all nerfed in some way, which could put a damper on players’ previous loadouts.
To see the full loadout for the STG44 in Warzone Season 4, keep reading below.
Best STG44 loadout in Warzone
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: VDD 760mm 05B
- Optic: G16 2.5x scope
- Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 60 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Proficiency: Vital
- Kit: Fully Loaded
Players will notice that the 760mm 05B barrel is still in use, even after it was nerfed in Season 4; this is because the STG44 needs as much damage range as possible, and this barrel is still the best option for that. The MX Silencer and Vital are also in use to increase that stat. The 7.62 Gorenko 60 Round Mags are in the magazine slot to offer extra bullets in each mag.
