The STG44 is a popular Warzone Pacific AR thanks to its long-range ability across Caldera, but with slightly altered attachments the STG can transform into a lethal SMG ready to dominate Rebirth Island matches.

Since Vanguard weapons made their way to Warzone, the STG44 has been a top pick for players. The weapon is often compared to the Kilo thanks to its simple recoil pattern that makes it easy to control.

It turns out the weapon has more strengths than just accuracy and range. The STG44 is proving to be more versatile than anyone could have imagined as a new SMG style loadout is dominating Rebirth Island.

FaZe Booya is a Warzone streamer and CoD content creator who doesn’t shy away from thinking outside of the box. The latest loadout of his has completely transformed the STG44 from long-range AR to close-range SMG.

Rebirth Island gunfights are vastly different from Caldera engagements for the most part. The tight spaces and abundance of buildings result in many close-range gunfights and this STG44 loadout will increase your chances of securing a win.

Warzone STG44 SMG loadout for Rebirth Island

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Krausnick 220mm Rapid
  • Optic: Krausnick ISO 2M
  • Stock: Krausnick S11S Folding
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Incendiary
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Focus
  • Perk: Fully Loaded

As you can see with the attachments above, the strategy is to sacrifice range to boost fire rate and mobility. The AR is already incredibly powerful and when we factor in the increased fire rate it becomes nearly unstoppable.

The key attachments here are the Recoil Booster, Krausnick 220mm Rapid, and Krausnick S11S Folding. These three attachments are the backbone of this loadout and will provide the necessary speed and firepower to dominate Rebirth Island.

Booya decides to pair this STG44 SMG with a Kar98k and we suggest you do the same as the option to take enemies down from long-range will come in handy.
