Top 5 Warzone 2 Season 2 Reloaded Meta Builds: Best Weapons for Al Mazrah & Ashika Island

Ashika Island or Al Mazrah, here are the best loadouts for Season Two Reloaded.

Warzone 2’s meta has already changed multiple times since launch and, with fresh nerfs to the KV Broadside, RAAL LMG and RPK, players are wondering which guns are currently dominating the battle royale. Here are the best meta loadouts for Warzone 2 Season Two Reloaded, ensuring you can rule the roost in Al Mazrah or Ashika Island.

The aforementioned Season Two Reloaded update brought a huge amount of weapon changes, including surprise buffs for a series of SMGs. As a result, some of the strongest weapons in the early stages of Season 2 have fallen and been replaced by emergent powerhouses. In this list, the Sakin MG38 has been usurped by the M13B, while the TAQ-56 has been replaced by the recently buffed VEL 46.

Lachmann Sub

Because of the aforementioned nerfs to the Fennec, the meta has significantly shifted in favor of the Lachmann Sub. This high-damage SMG can be enhanced with even better firepower and mobility, both of which make it especially effective in close-range encounters.

There is slightly more kick than some other SMGs – especially in light of its weakening with Season Two Reloaded – but none can really hang with the Lachmann’s TTK. Here are our picks for the best Lachmann Sub loadout, designed to minimize recoil and improve speed:

  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10
  • Muzzle: XRK Sandstorm
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision-40

VEL 46

While generally unpopular in Season 2’s early stages, the VEL 46 received a shock buff with Season Two Reloaded. Its close-range damage was significantly improved, making it the behemoth up close it’s been in past CoD titles. It still can’t hang with ARs at medium ranges but, if you’re playing as you should, you won’t need it at those ranges. As a result, our recommended build focuses on speed and accuracy, keeping you well equipped for any close range gunfight:

  • Muzzle: Lachmann Dart 165mm
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: ZLR Combat Grip

ISO Hemlock

The ISO Hemlock dropped with Season Two of Warzone 2 and has rapidly ascended to one of the best and most-picked weapons in the battle royale. Its medium to longer range damage is seriously impressive, but it may take some time to master the gun’s moderate recoil. It avoided a nerf with the mid-season patch and so remains as hot as when it dropped. The best attachments are detailed below:

  • Muzzle: Echoless-80
  • Barrel: Fielder T-50
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag
  • Underbarrel: Edge-47 Grip

The fast-firing M13B has risen gradually in Warzone 2’s meta as its competitors have been nerfed or fallen away. Because of its range and handling, it’s best suited to medium range engagements and treated as something of an AR-SMG hybrid. That speciality is also reflected in our recommended attachments, which prioritize accuracy and mobility:

  • Optic: Aim OP-V4
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20
  • Magazine: 60-Round Mag
  • Stock: Bruen R90 Factory

For Warzone 2 Season 2, the Vaznev-9K is in the spotlight as a meta SMG that is perfect for close-range sniper support. It doesn’t fire as fast as some of its SMG rivals, but what it lacks there it makes up for in terms of damage and range. This build is designed to help both those characteristics – as well as minimizing recoil:

  • Lazer: FSS OLE-V LZR
  • Barrel: KAS-1 381MM
  • Rear Grip: DEMO-X2 Grip
  • Muzzle: X10 RR-40
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

So, there you have it. Our picks for the 5 best Warzone 2 Season 2 Reloaded meta weapon loadouts. For a breakdown on specific weapon classes, check out our guides to the best SMGs, best ARs and best Sniper Rifles.
