Best Chimera Loadout in Warzone 2 & Modern Warfare 2
This one’s got a kick to it.
It’s become incredibly common for Warzone 2 and MW2 players to tailor their weapon choices and loadouts to the prevailing meta. In the aftermath of Season Two Reloaded, that’s changed considerably and some weapons, like the Chimera assault rifle, have exploded in popularity. As a result, we’re running through the best Chimera loadout in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 Season Two Reloaded.
Best Warzone 2 Chimera Loadout
For Warzone 2, you’ll want to treat the Chimera similarly to the Kastov-74U. That’s to say it’s akin to an AR-SMG hybrid; slightly faster and punchier than other ARs but struggling at longer ranges as a result. Users therefore need to adapt their playstyle slightly and use the Chimera in the way it’s been designed. It currently stands out as an exceptional sniper rifle support weapon.
Our recommended loadout augments the Chimera at medium ranges, balancing handling with recoil control – which is one of the biggest downsides of the Honey Badger reincarnation. The 45 Round Mags are essential given the weapon’s high fire-rate, while the FTAC Ripper 56 and D37 Grip minimize kick.
- Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
- Stock: Ravage-10
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Magazine: 45 Round Mag
- Rear Grip: D37 Grip
The VLK LZR 7MW and Ravage-10 Stock keep the ADS and sprint-to-fire snappy, ensuring you’re well equipped for close-range engagements too. It’s a very strong build and will keep you competitive at all ranges bar those long-distance ones.
Best MW2 Chimera Build
For MW2, we’re putting less emphasis on accuracy and more on handling and damage, ensuring you’ll eliminate enemies as quickly as possible in much faster-paced multiplayer matches. To that end, you’ll want the 6.5″ EXF Vorpal barrel and the Bruen Flash Grip, both of which improve ADS and sprint-to-fire speed.
We’re swapping the laser for the 1MW Quick Fire Flash because it’s harder for enemies to detect, while the FTAC Ripper is swapped for the Phase-3 Grip to aid accuracy as the only recoil controlling attachment.
- Barrel: 6.5″ EXF Vorpal
- Rear Grip: Bruen Flash Grip
- Magazine: 45 Round Mag
- Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
- Laser: 1MW Quick Fire Flash
We’re rounding off our recommended build with the 45 Round Mag again, because the Chimera tears through ammo just as quickly in multiplayer.
