There were only a select few weapons that received a buff in the recent Season 2 Reloaded update for Call of Duty: Warzone 2. The developers decided not to change the meta too drastically with the weapon balancing, but the buffed weapons do give players more options in terms of selecting a loadout. One weapon that more and more players have been looking to use recently is the VEL 46. The VEL 46 was buffed in Season 2 Reloaded; as a result, players are curious to see its best loadout in Warzone 2.
Prior to Season 2, the VEL 46 didn’t receive much attention from the player base. It was seen as a mid-tier submachine gun with no real advantages compared to the game’s top guns. However, after its buff in the most recent update, players are interested in trying it out to see if the changes make it strong enough to warrant a loadout spot. For players looking to use the VEL 46 in Season 1 Reloaded, they’ll want to ensure they have its best attachments equipped.
To see the full loadout for the VEL 46 in Warzone 2, keep reading below.
Best VEL 46 loadout in Warzone 2
The exact buffs for the VEL 46 in Season 2 Reloaded were as follows:
- Increased close damage ranges
- Fixed attributes on 30 round magazine to improve handling and mobility
The close damage damage range buff is what really stands out, as players will now be able to kill enemies quicker in close quarters. This might make the VEL 46 comparable to something like the Fennec 45 or Vaznev-9K now. The strongest set of attachments for the VEL 46 only help the SMG with these stats as well.
- Muzzle: Bruen Pendulum
- Laser: VLK LZR 7mW
- Stock: Demo RXT Stock
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Rear Grip: ZLR Combat Grip
This loadout gives the VEL 46 massive increases in accuracy, recoil control, handling, and mobility. Its damage range stays the same with this loadout, but as long as players are keeping gunfights at a manageable range, they shouldn’t notice that too much.
