Rebirth Island is chock-full of buildings where Warzone players can finesse their opponents with unique but powerful loadouts. FaZe’s Ean ‘Booya’ Chase is one of Rebirth’s best and showed off his “insane” hip-fire Sten loadout to dominate the smaller map.

Warzone’s Rebirth Island has been a fan favorite ever since its arrival with Black Ops Cold War, offering a smaller and more action-packed playspace. Rebirth allows players to experiment with some unique close-range loadouts and streamer FaZe Booya is known for creating some of the best.

Pairing a brand-new hip-fire Sten loadout with Modern Warfare’s Kar98k, Booya racked up a whopping 25 kills in Rebirth Island Squads and 27 in Solos. Here’s the “insane” Sten class he used to dominate Rebirth Island.

Warzone Vanguard Operator Kingsley with Sten
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Hockensen 174mm B11S
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Gawain Folding 43S
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 9mm 50 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Perk: Gung-ho
  • Perk 2: Quick

The attachments Booya used to turn the Sten into a deadly hip-fire class are the Hockensen 174mm B11S barrel, Carver Foregrip, Pine Tar Grip, Gawain Folding 43S stock, and Gung-ho. All of these attachments buff hip-fire accuracy and allow Booya to shoot from the hip while sprinting, making it especially powerful at close-range.

The Slate Reflector boosts the fire rate, lowering its time-to-kill, and he explained that the extra limb damage from the Hollow Point rounds are especially useful when using hip-fire. The 9mm 50 Round Drums give him enough ammo to wipe full squads, and the Quick Perk increases sprint speed. Finally, the Slate Reflector is useful for when you have to ADS to secure a kill.

Booya used the Sten’s hip-fire accuracy and Gung-ho Perk to hold the trigger as he chased down an enemy, calling it “insane” after securing the kill.

Although Booya never used Restock in the gameplay shown, he mentioned that it would pair perfectly with the Stims. He also recommended players stick to close quarters inside buildings, where you can use the Sten loadout’s speed to dominate.
