When it comes to Call of Duty: Warzone 2, understanding the various guns that are in the game is essential to elevating your gameplay. Sure, you can take down opponents using any gun, but if you want efficiency, you want to know which guns are in the meta. Each gun has its own unique properties and a different reason for why you would want to use them.
For example, the VEL 46 is an SMG that absolutely shreds enemies up close. It's considered to be one of the best SMGs in Warzone 2 right now and, with the right loadout, you can take this gun to new levels. But what exactly is the best loadout for the VEL 46? Here, we'll go over what we think is the best VEL 46 loadout in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 Season 5.
Update 9 August: The following loadout utilizes successful builds from previous seasons. We'll update this page throughout Warzone 2 Season 4 to reflect the state of the game.
The Best VEL 46 Loadout For Warzone 2 Season 5
The VEL 46 is an SMG considered to be one of the deadliest around. Not only is it fast, but it can shred enemies very quickly. It's the perfect compliment for a gun like the ISO Hemlock. With that being said, let's go over the best loadout:
- Barrel - Lach-165 Zulu
- Laser - VLK LZR 7MW
- Muzzle - Lacerta Compensator
- Rear Grip - ZLR Combat Grip
- Magazine - 50-Round Mag
The Lach-165 Zulu Barrel is great because of the increased damage range and hip fire accuracy. When you're not hip-firing the gun, you need extra ADS speed which means the VLK LZR is necessary. Lacerta Compensator Muszzle gives you more range and control. The ZLR Combat Grip gives you more control over the recoil this gun has. And of course, the 50-Round Mag means fewer reloads which which makes this SMG a well-balanced weapon.
Best VEL 46 Perks In Warzone 2 Season 4
As for perks, getting Overkill is a must. The VEL 46 suffers at long range so you will want a sniper or AR to compliment this gun. Double Time allows you to run away easily from unfavorable situations you might find yourself in. Plus, Double Time is further complimented by the loadout you have for the gun.
The Bonus Perk Fast Hands is needed if you have the Overkill perk. If you do not have Fast Hands, swapping weapons is a nightmare and you will lose a lot of fights without it. Finally, the High Alert Ultimate Perk is great at keeping you aware of who is around you. For equipment, it is usually up to personal preference but we recommend the Semtex and the Stun Grenades for this loadout.
