The best Warzone STG44 loadouts will keep you a devastating force as you hunt through Caldera in Call of Duty Warzone, a great assault rifle diverse enough for any situation. Now being transferred over from Vanguard, the STG44 can be used as the centre of a great build, with the right attachments, perks and equipment to really make it into something special. We've got that all laid out with the best Warzone STG44 loadout and build for you below.

The best STG44 loadout for Warzone is one based around building on the STG's strengths - mid-range combat, decent control and versatility. It's a very "standard" gun that doesn't play games, so by giving it the right attachments you can make it into a very solid, down-to-earth weapon that'll do well in any encounter. Though there's a lot of good ways to build the STG, this is probably the best loadout we've found so far. In fact, it's already an incredibly popular build for those going into the Pacific Caldera map, as it effectively negates recoil and keeps you focused on your targets.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Barrel: VDD 760mm 05B
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 45 Round Drum
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
  • Perk 1: Vital
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

This version of the STG44 is very good in sustained firefights, as its control and accuracy means it works at medium-to-long encounters, punching headshots at a distance and rarely wavering off-target. It's not so good in close quarters unless you practically press the barrel against somebody, but it can keep up with any other build outside of shotgun-distance.

For the rest of the build, you probably want to keep up the all-purposes build that this loadout has been aiming for so far. Overkill is a smart choice, but what gun you put in it is up to you - the choice we'd go for is a Kar98k specced for sniping, but doesn't everyone? A bigger, punchier sniper rifle, or a slick SMG will help you cover either very long or very short distances.

  • Secondary Weapon: Kar98k
  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Heartbeat Sensor

There's not a lot here that needs explaining to the veteran Warzone player. The Kar98k has been the secondary weapon of choice for a while, quick to use without sacrificing punch as a rifle, and the perks and equipment are designed to help in the short-range, so that you can make up for the shortfall of the STG while prowling buildings.
