Call of Duty: Warzone tends to be flooded with assault rifle, SMG, and sniper fans. It has been a while since a light machine gun was given the spotlight, and many LMG fans are still recovering from the Bruen nerf last year. Since then, some fans have seen the potential for LMGs to once again rise in the Call of Duty: Warzone meta, as a popular Stone 63 loadout has been circulating.
In Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the Stoner 63 is dominating the LMG category. It has a huge magazine, decent accuracy, and wide potential depending on the attachments used to build it up. Call of Duty: Warzone fans see its potential, and when geared correctly, the Stoner 63 can destroy enemies in a matter of seconds.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War describes the Stoner 63 as a full-auto light machine gun with an improved fire rate. Its increased ammo capacity allows it to sustain a long rate of fire while the reduced recoil and decent visibility make it an easy to control shot. This optimizes the Stoner 63 for new and veteran players alike, and its wide range of attachments offer tons of options when it comes to diversifying its many skills.
- Muzzle - Agency Suppressor
- Barrel - 21.8" Task Force Barrel
- Optic - Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel - Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition - Spetsnaz 150 Rnd
For many players, this loadout is similar to that of the Call of Duty: Warzone Bruen used last year. The Agency Suppressor hides the gun's visibility while increasing its accuracy. Meanwhile, the 21.8" Task Force Barrel further extends the range of the weapon, and with an increased bullet velocity, the damage increases as well.
The Axial Arms 3x provides a clear scope into distant enemies, while the Field Agent Grip provides stability and reduced recoil. The Spetsnaz 150 Rnd magazine offers additional ammunition allowing for a rapid-fire experience without running out of shots any time soon. The complete loadout takes advantage of the weapon's accuracy, damage, and range and is best paired with one of Call of Duty: Warzone's submachine guns for a secondary option.
This is a powerful LMG loadout that is sure to dominate on the battlefield. Although it is not as strong as the Bruen was, it can easily replace that void left in the Call of Duty: Warzone meta since the initial nerf. Do note that this is a long-range weapon, and it will not hold its own in close-combat engagements.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
