Ean ‘FaZe Booya’ Chase has revealed how he has turned one of Warzone 2’s best Battle Rifles into a competitive close-range SMG loadout.

Warzone 2 Season 3 has brought quite a few options when it comes to weapons in the battle royale. Players are continuing to find meta loadouts, even without using the most popular guns.

The long-range meta has shifted due to the return of one-shot Snipers, with the new Intervention becoming a popular pick. Further, the fellow new weapon the Cronen Squall has also been generating some noise.

While many would build this Battle Rifle to excel at long-range, with some even believing it’s better in semi-automatic, FaZe Booya has revealed how he has managed to turn this weapon into the “ultimate” SMG.

FaZe Booya’s Warzone 2 SMG Cronen Squall loadout

  • Laser: Schlager PEQ Box IV
  • Barrel: SB6.8 16″
  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Magazine: 30 Round Mag

To start this Cronen Squall SMG build, FaZe Booya goes with the Lockshot KT85 muzzle and FTAC Ripper 56 underbarrel for recoil control and aiming idle stability. The SB6.8 16″ barrel will provide some much-needed aim down sight and movement speed, helping the weapon become more effective at close range.

As for the magazine, Booya opts for the 30 Round Mag but does recommend the 50 if you are playing in trios or quads. Lastly, the Schlager PEQ Box IV will further increase ADS and sprint-to-fire speeds.
