The best Warzone AS VAL loadouts are all built around the assault rifles built in silencer and dealing with it's high recoil. The main advantage of this gun in Call of Duty Warzone obviously comes from the included silencer freeing up attachments, although there are barrel options to play with if you want more range, damage and so on. As a mid range option to take into Verdansk this can provide some interesting options from it's built in stealth and high bullet penetration. Just try to avoid too much spray and pray with that recoil. If you're up for it, though, and want to give it a try, here are the best Warzone AS VAL loadouts for recoil control, speed, and range.

Warzone AS VAL recoil control loadout

  • Optic - GI mini reflex
  • Stock - VLK stock
  • Underbarrel - Commando foregrip
  • Ammunition - 30 round mags
  • Rear Grip - Stippled grip tape

This is a basic assault rifle loadout for the AS VAL designed to tame its recoil and give you some control of its fire rate and damage at medium ranges. The Commando Foregrip and rear tape help control the spray, while the stock brings in the accuracy so you can land shots through the reflex sight. It's basic but it gets the job done. 

Warzone AS VAL speed loadout

  • Barrel - Stovl SOF
  • Stock - VLK Strelok
  • Underbarrel - Merc Foregrip
  • Rear Grip - Granulated Grip Tape
  • Magazine - 30 Round Mags

This is very much built for a speedy, spray and pray building clearing approach. The stock will boost your movement and ADS, while the stock, foregrip and grip tape will help pull in the recoil and hopefully reduce the actual spraying and praying. The foregrip will also boost hipfire for when you don't have time to aim. And, finally, the 30 round mags are basically indispensable for this gun given how fast you can fire. 

Warzone AS VAL long range loadout

  • Barrel - VLK 200mm Osa
  • Optic - 4.0x Flip Hybrid
  • Stock - VLK Strelok
  • Underbarrel - Ranger Foregrip
  • Magazine - SPP 10-R Mags

Given its recoil the AS VAR is never going to make a good sniper option, but you can kit it out to maximize range and fire silenced death from further. Here the VLK 200mm Osa barrel increases damage range while the VLK Strelok Stock and Ranger Foregrip can help tame the recoil a little. The flip hybrid scope also gives you some options, just in case you need to pull in your aim closer. And while we'd usually always recommend the 30 round mags, the SPP 10-R option increases damage and bullet penetration.
