Following the health update in Warzone 2 Season 4, CoD guru WhosImmortal has shared the slept-on LMG with an “unmatched” TTK that can dominate long-range fights.

The Warzone 2 Season 4 update was yet another huge overhaul to the meta, after the devs introduced a handful of new weapons and a ton of balancing changes. However, the most drastic change was the health increase, giving fully-plated players the ability to soak up an additional 50 damage.

This tweak to the TTK caused a number of weapons that were previously top-tier to fall out of favor, especially Assault Rifles like the TAQ-56 and ISO Hemlock, leaving players wondering what to replace them with.

Luckily, CoD expert WhoImmortal has revealed the underused LMG that “erases” enemies with a time-to-kill that no other gun can rival.

In his July 9 video, the YouTuber named the RAAL MG as the second-best weapon in Warzone 2 Season 4, with only the SO-14 ranking higher. This was despite the RAAL only being used by around 0.3% of players according to WZ Ranked.

“This thing has been the TTK king since [the] launch of Warzone 2 and the same stands true now,” WhosImmortal explained. “The power is just, genuinely, unmatched.”

Although he did mention that the RAAL MG is a little slower than other weapons when it comes to ADS and reload speeds, WhosImmortal urged players to give it a try, as the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks.

“You’re going to notice, once you start landing your shots and really mastering this gun, nothing really stands a chance,” he added.

Check out WhosImmortal’s best RAAL MG loadout in Warzone 2 Season 4 below.

WhosImmortal’s best RAAL MG loadout in Warzone 2

  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90
  • Barrel: 21″ EXF Rhino Barrel
  • Rear Grip: STIP-40 Grip
  • Underbarrel: XRK Dune Grip
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4

WhosImmortal’s RAAL MG build in Warzone 2 revolves around keeping the LMG under control at long-range, so he began with the 21″ EXF Rhino Barrel, buffing the recoil control as well as bullet velocity. He paired this with the STIP-40 Grip for an extra boost to recoil control, keeping it steady to ensure you’re landing shots.

Next, he went for the Nilsound 90, offering additional damage range and bullet velocity to make the RAAL an absolute monster over long distances. He also added the XRX Dune Grip to improve the overall stability, keeping it on target during sustained fire.

Last up, WhosImmortal picked the Aim OP-V4, but players can easily swap this out for their preferred optic.

The RAAL MG has been one of the fastest-killing guns in Warzone 2 for some time but remains one of the more underrated options in the game. With this build, don’t be surprised to see it dominating lobbies going forward.
