Warzone 2 50 GS Handgun

Warzone 2’s .50 GS Handgun dominates in close quarters due to the Akimbo attachment. Here’s the best .50 GS Desert Eagle loadout for Warzone 2 with attachments and Perks.

Due to preset Perk Packages, Overkill is not as popular in Warzone 2 as it was in the original. This development has led to players searching for the best Secondary weapon in the game to improve their close-range combat.

The P890 and X12 emerged as the two best Akimbo Pistol loadouts in the game. However, the Season 1 Reloaded update delivered major buffs to the .50 GS, which has allowed its stock to skyrocket.
