Popular Warzone 2 content creator Ean ‘FaZe Booya’ Chase has unveiled his best loadout for Ranked Play after popular weapons the ISO Hemlock and Cronen Squall were nerfed in Season 3 Reloaded.

The Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded May 31 patch introduced some pretty big nerfs to two of the game’s most popular weapons, the ISO Hemlock and Cronen Squall. These weapons dominated Ranked Play, as they were both extremely strong at range.

This has left many players wondering which weapons will now rise to the top, with some actually feeling as if the Cronen Squall will continue to be powerful despite the balance change.

Luckily, popular FaZe member Booya has shared his new best Warzone 2 Ranked Play loadout following the nerfs, covering both long and short-range with the MCPR-300 and Lachmann Sub.

FaZe Booya’s best Warzone 2 Ranked Play loadout


  • Barrel: 22″ OMX-456
  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90
  • Ammunition: .300 Mag Explosive
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Optic: Forge Tac Delta 4x

Lachmann Sub

  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226mm
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG
  • Stock: Meer Recoil-56 Factory Stock
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW

FaZe Booya has built the MCPR-300 to be a one-shot long-ranged Sniper that, with accuracy and some patience, is absolutely deadly. The .300 Mag Explosive is essential as this is what turns the MCPR-300 into a one-shot headshot, even from long-range.

To boost its speed, the FSS OLE-V Laser provides a great improvement to the aim down sight speed, allowing you to aim in quickly and find your target.

To cover close-ranged engagements, Booya chooses the Lachmann Sub thanks to the Overkill Perk. This SMG is lethal from close range, especially with this build, as attachments such as the VLK LZR 7MW and L38 Falcon 226mm barrel increase the weapon’s mobility and speed in close quarters combat.

Well, there you have it, that’s FaZe Booya’s go-to loadout after the ISO Hemlock and Cronen Squall nerfs. For more guide, check out some of our other pieces on Warzone 2 below:
