Best Striker 45 Warzone loadout attachments

Striker 45 Warzone loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 300mm Poly Barrel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Stock: XRK Gen III Survivalist Series
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags

We’ll start off this Striker 45 loadout by improving the weapon’s bullet velocity and damage range with the help of the Monolithic Suppressor muzzle and 300mm Poly Barrel.

While you’ll mostly hip fire in close-range combat, the XRK Gen III Survivalist Series stock will buff the Warzone Striker 45’s ADS speed in case you need to take down enemies that are further away.

The Tac Laser will also provide a buff to ADS speed and let you hit targets in close-range encounters with greater accuracy. Finally, the 45 Round Mags will ensure you have plenty of ammo to secure multiple kills.

Best Perks and equipment to run with Warzone Striker 45

E.O.D Perk in Warzone Pacific
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

You won’t be safe from explosives when using this SMG in close-range battles, so E.O.D will reduce incoming explosive damage. Overkill will let you pair the Striker 45 with a weapon that has more range, such as the KG M40.

Amped will allow you to quickly swap between weapons so you’re always ready to fight. For our Equipment, we went with the Semtex to dish out additional damage, and the Stim will provide a health boost.

How to unlock the Striker 45 in Warzone

In order to unlock the Striker 45, you must complete a challenge that requires you to get 2 kills while sliding when using an SMG in 15 matches. This can easily be done in Warzone’s Plunder mode.

If you’re lucky to get an SMG in the Warzone warm-up, then try to get the sliding kills there before the match starts. But you have to complete the match for the challenge to count.
