The STB 556 is an Assault Rifle in Warzone 2. That means the STB 556 excels at taking fights from mid to long-range. To make this particular weapon really shine, you will need to make sure you get the first shot off as quickly as possible and stay in fights. With those two goals in mind, here is the best loadout for the STB 556:

  • Barrel - 508mm Rear Guard
  • Muzzle - Harbringer D20
  • Optic - Aim OP-V4
  • Ammunition - 5.56 High Velocity
  • Magazine - 42-Round Mag

The most important attachment here is the 42-Round Mag. With this particular attachment, you'll stay in gun fights for a lot longer and will have all the ammo you need to take down an entire squad. The 5.56 High Velocity ammunition will increase your range and on top of that, keep your recoil control steady in combination with the 508 mm Rear Guard.

Best Perks For The STB 556 In Warzone 2 Season 5

Nearly all good loadouts will want you to have the Overkill Perk. Having Overkill allows you to equip an SMG that is better suited for taking out enemies in buildings or at close range. Pair this with Double Time and you will be moving quickly in Warzone 2. Double Time also allows you to get to the best position possible quickly.

If you have Overkill, you also need the Fast Hands Perk. Fast Hands allow you to quickly swap and reload your weapons which can save you precious time. The Ultimate Perk you'll need is the High Alert Perk, allowing you to always know who is looking at you. Be sure to use Double Time to reposition. For equipment, any combination will do but we like Frag Grenades and Stun Grenades.
