Then, we’ve gone for the Sakin Tread-40 muzzle 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 Quads 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 ISO 45, 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.
