Despite all the changes to the meta, Assault Rifles remain a dominant force on both Ashika Island and Al Mazrah, and the ISO Hemlock has emerged as one of the most popular weapons in the game.

Here’s the best ISO Hemlock loadout for Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded, including all of the top attachments and Perks to complement it.

Best Warzone 2 ISO Hemlock loadout attachments

  • Barrel: Fielder-T50
  • Muzzle: Sakin Tread-40
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4

We kick off the best Warzone 2 ISO Hemlock loadout with the Fielder-T50 barrel, which buffs the AR’s damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control to make it far more reliable in mid to long-range fights. Then, we’ve gone for the Sakin Tread-40 and 5.56 High Velocity ammo, which combined, increase recoil stability and bullet velocity to ensure the Hemlock stays laser accurate at a distance.

It’s also important to equip 45 Round Mags, especially if you’re playing Trios or Squads in Warzone 2. This will allow you to deal with multiple enemies before having to cover and reload.

Last up is the Aim OP-V4, an easy-to-use optic that makes it far easier to hit those shots when trying to pick off enemy squads over longer ranges.

Best Warzone 2 ISO Hemlock Perks & Equipment

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

We recommended using Overkill and Double Time with the ISO Hemlock. The first with allow you to run a secondary weapon, preferably a close-range SMG like the Vaznev-9k, while the latter will make you more mobile.

In the Bonus Slot, you’ll want to run Fast Hands to speed up how long it takes to switch weapons and reload, ensuring you’re always ready for a fight. Finally, the Ghost Perk will keep you hidden from enemy UAVs, which is vital when trying to get the drop on rival teams.

When it comes to Equipment, Semtex is a surefire way to score some easy kills, while Flash Grenades can disorientate entire squads before you move in for an easy elimination.
