Best STB 556 Loadout in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2
Bringing out the big guns.
With so many weapons and attachments to choose from in the battle royale sequel and the 2022 annual CoD installment, it can be difficult to narrow down your picks. Here, we’re running through the best STB 556 loadouts in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2, with the AR rapidly growing in popularity following Season 2 Reloaded.
Best Warzone 2 STB 556 Build
For Warzone 2, we’re placing a lot of emphasis on accuracy and recoil control. The STB 556’s fierce fire-rate does mean there’s a fair amount of kick for players to combat but, with this loadout, it won’t take you too long to be shooting well at all ranges.
The Demo Cleanshot 40, Bruen HCR Stock 56 and Stip-40 grip all reduce recoil, massively improving the STB’s kick in just a few attachments.
- Underbarrel: Demo Cleanshot 40
- Stock: Bruen HCR 56 Stock
- Optic: Aim OP-V4
- Rear Grip: Stip-40 Grip
- Magazine: 42 Round Mag
They’re joined by the Aim OP-V4 optic which is a very strong option on any weapon that’ll be used for medium ranges or further. Finally, the 42 Round Mag is an essential, given the STB’s fire-rate will have you reloading fairly frequently even with 12 extra shots.
It’s designed to thrive as your primary weapon and should be used alongside a SMG or, if you’re confident, as a sniper support weapon.
Best STB 556 Loadout in Modern Warfare 2
For MW2, you won’t need the same emphasis on recoil control or range. To that end, we’re making changes across the board, instead improving handling and mobility.
We’re bringing in the Bruen MX9 Stock and Bruen Q900 Grip to massively improve ADS time, with only a very small penalty to aiming stability. Similarly, the Cronen Mini Pro is perfectly adequate for MW2 multiplayer, without the need for ultra-long-range gunfights like in Al Mazrah.
- Muzzle: RF Crown 50
- Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
- Stock: Bruen MX9 Stock
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
- Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip
Finally, to help with some accuracy and ensure the STB is still usable as an AR, we’re going for the Commando Foregrip and RF Crown 50 muzzle to balance out the lost accuracy from all the other attachments.
It’s a well-rounded class and perfect for medium ranges but, provided you’re ADS, the STB’s fire rate can hang up close too.
