Warzone’s STB 556 is a powerful Assault Rifle option that can be used to dominate any map or mode and here’s the best STB 556 loadout in Warzone Season 3.

There are many different weapon classes that are suited to different combat situations in Warzone, and Assault Rifles are the perfect all-rounders, with the STB 556 being one of the best options.

The STB 556’s high fire rate and easy-to-control recoil make it a solid choice, but you’ll want the best attachments, Perks, and Equipment for it in Warzone Season 3, so here’s everything you need.

Best Warzone STB 556 loadout attachments

  • Barrel: 508mm Rear Guard
  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Magazine: 42 Round Mag
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip

The best Warzone STB 556 loadout starts off by equipping the 508mm Rear Guard barrel and the VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor muzzle to buff the weapon’s bullet velocity, effective damage range, and recoil smoothness.

Next, you can lower the STB 556’s recoil with the Bruen Heavy Support Grip, and use the Corio Eagleseye 2.5x optic to pick off enemies from a distance. Finally, I found the 42 Round Mag to just be enough ammo to take out multiple foes, making it essential.

Best Warzone STB 556 loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 3: Quick Fix
  • Perk 4: High Alert
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

Kicking off the best Perks to use with the STB 556 in Warzone is Double Time, which will allow you to Tactical Sprint for longer and more often.

Sleight of Hand is a no-brainer, allowing you to reload nice and fast and get back in the action while Quick Fix will ensure you’re regenerating health as fast as possible after being in combat. Lastly, High Alert is a lifesaver, as it always keeps me covered and provides intel on when I’m seen by enemy Operators.

As for Equipment, a Semtex is a classic, allowing you to potentially stick players or even place them in an area that the enemy will find difficult to escape, and Smoke Grenades are a great defensive option when there’s no cover in tricky situations.

How to unlock STB 556 in Warzone

You can unlock the STB 556 by reaching Rank 41, which can take a while. You’ll need to hop into MW3 multiplayer or fast matches of Warzone Resurgence or Plunder when it’s available in order to grind and reach this rank.

If you want to speed up this process then we recommend using Double XP Tokens as they’re a great way to level up fast in Warzone.

Best Alternatives to the STB 556 in Warzone

If you want to try an alternative to the Warzone STB 556 then you should check out the Bruen Mk9 which boasts impressive damage and low recoil for an LMG. Warzone’s SVA 545 is another great option for medium-range battles.
