Best LMG loadouts for Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6

Best Warzone LMG loadouts

LMGs are ideal for taking on whole squads in Warzone Season 6, so we’ve ranked every Light Machine Gun and counted down the top five loadouts you should run.

LMGs, or Light Machine Guns, are by far the most reliable full-auto weapons to use at long-range while fighting squads in Warzone.

Although they are much slower than the game’s best Assault Rifles, LMGs are extremely useful when fighting whole squads. With their large magazines, you’ll be able to tear through Trios and Quads with ease. Pair an LMG with one of the best SMGs, and you’ll be running an incredibly effective loadout.

Let’s get into our picks for the best LMGs you should be running in Warzone Season 6.

Best Warzone LMG loadouts

We’re counting down the top five LMG loadouts you can run in Warzone Season 6.

These loadouts give you the choice between weapons that dominate at long-range, and faster, more versatile LMGs if you’re an aggressive player.


Best FiNN LMG loadout

The FiNN may be a surprising choice to be in the top five LMG loadouts, but it’s the fastest killing long-range weapon in Warzone.

With the XRK LongShot Adverse barrel, the FiNN can take down a player in only 543 ms. No other weapon can kill this fast, so you’ll be taking out enemies in the blink of an eye. The only thing holding it back is a slow ADS speed and low mobility, but enemies won’t even be able to react to its lethal barrage of bullets.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK LongShot Adverse
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip

4. RPD

Best Warzone RPD loadout

The RPD packs a solid punch at range, which makes it a reliable choice of LMG. YouTuber JGOD also recently called it one of Warzone’s most underrated weapons.

Of course, you’ll be slower than if you ran an Assault Rifle, but its large magazine size more than makes up for that. With this RPD build, you’ll be able to take down multiple opponents with one magazine, and then use the Fast Mag to instantly get back in the fight.

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20.3″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: Fast Mag

3. Stoner 63

Best Stoner 63 loadout

For a solid LMG that can take on targets at close-medium range, the Stoner 63 is a solid choice.

Although its TTK isn’t the fastest on this list, you’ll find great success in how easy it is to control. We’ve built this Stoner to take advantage of that, using the Serpent Wrap to significantly improve its ADS speed.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.8″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Rear Grip: Serprent Wrap

2. Bruen MK9

Best Bruen Mk9 loadout

The Bruen Mk9 is the “Ol’ Reliable” of Warzone. It’s always been a powerful LMG, and once you put on a 60 Round Mag, the weapon becomes more of an LMG/Assault Rifle hybrid.

The Bruen’s TTK isn’t too far behind the FiNN’s, so with the power of an LMG and movement of an Assault Rifle, the Bruen becomes one of Warzone’s best weapons.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Summit 26.8″
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x / Holographic Sight
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

1. PKM

Best PKM loadout

The PKM offers high firepower and huge magazine size, allowing you to rarely be caught reloading mid-fight. Although this weapon suits more passive players who enjoy beaming enemies at range, it can also be effectively used by players who

If you manage to lock an enemy in your sights with the PKM, it’s essentially game over for them. Even if a full team is crossing a field in front of you, you’ll be able to pick them all off in quick succession.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 26.9″ Extended Barrel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Snatch Grip
