Everyone’s favourite assault rifle, the Krig 6, was the subject of this nerf. It seems the developers want players to test out some other ARs before Season 6. The Krig 6 was easily the most used rifle of Season 5 and for good reason. It has unbeatable damage and virtually no recoil with the right attachments equipped.
However, this is no longer the case. The Krig has suffered a substantial nerf in both the damage range and weapon kick, meaning it won’t be as accurate moving forward. This is big news for the meta of Warzone and new weapons will be thrust into the spotlight. Though, for fans who aren’t a fan of change, they can always just use the updated Krig 6 loadout.
Krig 6 loadout for Warzone Season 5 Reloaded
The patch notes for the Krig 6 are as follows:
- Maximum Damage decreased from 30 to 29
- Mid Damage now 25
- Minimum Damage decreased from 25 to 23
- Weapon Kick adjusted
These are huge changes and now make the Krig 6 far less powerful at range and need some additional attachments to help with the added recoil. Luckily, the updated loadout fixes these issues.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 19.7” Ranger
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition: STANAG 60 Round Mag
The one key element that’s changed in the loadout for Season 5 Reloaded is the barrel. Instead of using the CMV barrel, which dropped the damage range by 40%, players should now use the 19.7” Ranger for added bullet velocity.
The rest of the loadout is standard for the Krig 6. The Agency Suppressor increases damage range, lowers recoil and suppresses shots when firing.
The Axial Arms 3x is still the best scope for mid to long-range gunfights for an assault rifle. To help with the added weapon kick, the Field Agent Grip is the best choice for any loadout. And finally the STANAG 60 Round Mag is to ensure players have enough bullets for a multiple-enemy gunfight.
