FaZe Swagg has shown off his Warzone Season 2 Reloaded Nail Gun class setup that he claims absolutely “shreds” and doesn’t lose from up close.

Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded has definitely refreshed the meta for the battle royale, especially as so many players are enjoying the close-range combat of the Rebirth Island map, which opens up the meta for more SMGs.

In addition to revealing a loadout to make the classic Tar-21 from Modern Warfare 2, FaZe Swagg is now claiming that the Nail Gun is also a serious contender for the current SMG close-range meta in Season 2 Reloaded.

Of course, the Nail Gun is a bit of an odd weapon compared to other guns in Warzone, as players are unable to put attachments on it. Having said that, FaZe Swagg claims it still has “one of the fastest TTKs” in Warzone, despite only having 20 shots in a mag.

FaZe Swagg uses the Nail Gun on both Rebirth Island and Caldera in the video, showing how the Nail Gun can be effective on both maps if you play for close-range engagements.

Keep in mind that this is easier to do on Rebirth Island, but can be done on Caldera if you run a Sniper along with it for longer engagements.

As the Nail Gun doesn’t have attachment options, players will only need to worry about the rest of their class setup when it comes to FaZe Swagg’s Nail Gun loadout.

  • Primary: Nail Gun
  • Secondary: Kar98k

The Kar98k is arguably the best sniper in Warzone, mostly because of its fast mobility and versatility when it comes to range. Players can use this sniper to either take a quick shot at someone close by or even attempt to down enemies at long-range with a headshot.

This bridges the gap that the Nail Gun’s range doesn’t cover, allowing you to focus on close-range engagements with your primary weapon.

As for the equipment that Swagg has opted for with the Nail Gun loadout, we have the Stims which are great for added mobility and health regen, so you can get in the enemy’s face, which is exactly where you want to be with the Nail Gun.

  • Tactical: Stims
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife


  • Perk 1: Quick Fix
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped

FaZe Swagg has opted for Quick Fix in the first Perk slot due to the recent buff to the Perk that causes health to regen after plating up. This allows you to get back to full health much quicker, which is vital when you’re running around with the Nail Gun.

Next, we have Overkill for Perk 2, this allows Swagg to run the Kar98k, which is essential to the loadout as it covers the mid to long ranges that the Nail Gun can’t cover.

Lastly, we have Amped, which will allow you to swap your weapons faster so you can get your Nail Gun out as fast as possible after hitting a snipe.
