Call of Duty: Warzone 2 had one of the biggest launches for a Battle Royale game when it dropped back in November 2022. Warzone was already popular in its own right, so there were plenty of fans who were excited by a sequel. Now that Warzone 2 is out, players are trying to figure out what the best guns are in the game.

In addition to the overall best guns, players are also experimenting with the best loadouts. The loadouts will capitalize on the strengths of the weapon, making an already excellent gun into something better. Here, we are going to be talking about the Sakin MG38 and exactly which loadout you should be using in Warzone 2.

Update 9 August: The following loadout utilizes successful builds from previous seasons. We'll update this page throughout Warzone 2 Season 5 to reflect the state of the game.

What Is The Best Sakin MG38 Loadout For Warzone 2 Season 5?

The Sakin MG38 is an LMG in Warzone 2. Not only are LMGs big and heavy in Warzone 2, but they tend to have a longer sustained fire due to how their large magazines sizes. That means you'll want to control the gun as accurately as possible as you are firing your rounds. That's why recoil control is essential. Here is the best loadout for the Sakin MG38 in Warzone 2 Season 4:

  • Barrel - 20" Bruen Silver Series Barrel
  • Underbarrel - Edge-47 Grip
  • Muzzle - Polarfire-S
  • Optic - Aim OP-V4
  • Rear Grip - Stip-40 Grip

The Polarfire-S, the Edge-47 Grip, and the Stip-40 Grip are all working together to make sure your recoil control is as high as possible. These three attachments give you improved recoil control and, because of that, give you more ability to hit your targets and take them down. Aim OP-V4 is our choice of optic as we feel it is the least intrusive when you ADS.

What Perks Are The Best For The Sakin MG38 In Warzone 2 Season 5?

Now the perks are absolutely essential for the Sakin MG38. You need the Overkill Perk just for the ability to switch to a much lighter weapon for close range. That's also why we suggest the Double Time Perk due to the fact that you will need to have as much movement speed as possible with this gun.

Couple this with Fast Hands so you can reload and swap weapons at a much faster rate. As for your ultimate, we suggest High Alert because it should give you enough time to react to an enemy who is about to shoot you. As for equipment, normal Frag Grenades will help flush enemies out while Stun Grenades will give you the speed advantage over others.
