Looking for an overpowered new loadout in Warzone Season 2? This Automaton setup that CoD pro Kris ‘FaZe Swagg’ Lamberson used in an insane 39-kill Solo Squads win could be just what you’re looking for.

Warzone players are spoiled for choice when it comes to weapons in Season 2. The game boasts a roster spanning three CoD installments and is growing all the time, with BOCW even receiving the new Vargo 52 Assault Rifle recently.

With so many guns and builds to pick from, honing in on the best one for you is growing increasingly difficult. Luckily, pros like FaZe Swagg are on hand to show off the best loadouts that are doing the business in Caldera.

In his March 13 video, Swagg revealed that he racked up an insane 39 kills while playing solo in Squads, securing his first Caldera win in this format at the same time. Securing a win on Warzone is no easy task in any mode, but taking on full teams with no backup takes a special weapon to pull off.

He pulled off this “ridiculous” feat using an Automaton loadout, which has been one of the most popular Assault Rifles in Warzone ever since Vanguard integrated into the battle royale at the end of 2021.

Faze Swagg’s Automaton loadout

Automaton in Warzone
  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: ZAC 600 BFA
  • Optic: M38/Slate 2.5x Custom
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Stock: Anastasia Padded
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 75 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Swagg kicked off his Automaton loadout with the MX Silencer, which helps you stay nice and quiet as you sneak across Caldera while also buffing the AR’s overall accuracy.

The ZAC 600 BFA Barrel helps with horizontal recoil control, while the M38/Slate 2.5x Custom keeps the gun on the straight and narrow during long bouts of fire.

He followed this up with the Polymer Grip, Anastasia Padded Stock, and Carver Grip, which combine with the Tight Grip Perk to greatly improve stability, and make the Automaton a breeze to handle.

Finally, Swagg opted for 6.5mm Sakura 75 Round Drums stuffed full of Lengthened Rounds to boost the gun’s velocity, then used Fully Loaded to make sure you start off with as much precious ammo as possible.


The Automaton is currently the 8th most popular weapon in Warzone Pacific, but if Swagg’s performance while using it is anything to go by, don’t be surprised to see it climb even higher in the coming weeks.
