A Warzone content creator has revealed that a forgotten Assault Rifle can rival the STG, which is considered one of the best weapons in Season 3.

Following the Season 3 update, the Warzone meta has undergone some drastic changes. It wasn’t just the Sniper meta that changed as several players predicted. The best Assault Rifles in the game also underwent major changes.

Thanks to buffs to most Vanguard weapons, the STG44 is currently an extremely powerful option across Caldera and Rebirth Island. Despite the weapon’s recent dominance, a Warzone expert has claimed that a forgotten AR can keep up with the STG44.

Krig 6 in Warzone

Cold War’s Krig 6 certainly enjoyed a spell in the Warzone spotlight when the weapon was the top AR option. It has since declined in popularity with a pick rate of only 0.94% at this stage of Season 3.

Despite the Krig’s apparent lack of viability, Warzone expert TheKoreanSavage was able to prove that the Assault Rifle is a highly underrated option for players, “it feels like the STG44, but for some reason, it feels better.”

TheKoreanSavage’s Warzone Krig 6 loadout

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 15″ CMV Mil-Spec
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: STANAG 60 Rnd

Straight away you may notice that TheKoreanSavage equips a unique barrel attachment, opting for the 15″ CMV Mil-Spec. You may be accustomed to seeing the 19.7″ Takedown but the added recoil control of the 15″ CMV Mil-Spec truly makes it feel like a no-recoil weapon.

The extremely low recoil is what makes the weapon feel similar to the STG, “I can’t even tell, they’re kind of like the same thing.” This is great news for Warzone players who prefer Cold War weapons over Vanguard weapons, as the Krig 6 can clearly compete with STG.

The Field Agent Grip further adds recoil control, which makes the weapon easier to handle. The Axial Arms 3x is the perfect sight for both Rebirth Island and Caldera. If you’re skeptical about this Krig loadout, you can check out TheKoreanSavage’s gameplay where the streamer drops a whopping 32 kills in a single Rebirth Island match.
