Best Warzone 2 Cronen Squall loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal: Drill Charge

Along with the best Cronen Squall attachments, you’ll also need to run the right Perks to make the most of it in Warzone 2. We’ve kicked things off with Double Time, allowing you to sprint for longer to avoid enemy fire.

Overkill lets you equip another primary weapon to keep you covered in close-range fights, such as the Lachmann Sub or VEL 46. Then, Fast Hands ensures you can switch between the two quickly so you always have the correct weapon on hand.

Finally, Ghost is essential in keeping you off enemy radars so you can easily get the drop on rival squads. Equipment-wise, we recommend Flash Grenades to disorientate players, along with Drill Charges to flush enemies out from behind the cover.
