Call of Duty content creator Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff showed off his loadout for the Stoner 63 which improves upon the weapon’s accuracy and damage range, while explaining why he prefers it over the PKM.

LMGs can be powerful tools to have your at your disposal when competing against other players in Warzone. Although the battle royale is often dominated by SMGs and Assault Rifles, you’ll still find these to be a viable choice.

Call of Duty content creator NICKMERCS shares this sentiment, so he released a new video in which he claimed that the Stoner 63 is even better than the PKM. He also talked about his preferred loadout for the LMG.

NICKMERCS’ Stoner 63 Warzone loadout

Black Ops Cold War weapons have faced a hard time competing with Modern Warfare’s loadouts, but the Stoner 63 is capable of packing a massive punch with great accuracy, and equipping a few select attachments can further improve this gun.

NICKMERCS equipped the following attachments to his Stoner 63 LMG:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 17.8” Cavalry Lancer
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: 120 Rnd

This loadout is meant to give a massive boost to the gun’s accuracy and damage, while also improving the range. The Agency Suppressor will help with damage range, and give the Stoner 63 sound suppression. 

You’ll need to continuously fire at your enemies, so recoil control is vital to the weapon. This is where the Field Agent Foregrip comes in, and improves the vertical recoil of the LMG.

The 17.8” Cavalry Lancer kills two birds with one stone by improving both the vehicle damage and bullet velocity of the weapon. This will greatly complement your improved range, and allow you to kill mid to long-range targets much more quickly.

NICKMERCS then ended the list with the Axial Arms 3x and 120 Rnd mags. The Axial Arms 3x will help you aim better from any range, while the 120 Rnd magazine gives you a boost to your ammo capacity so that you have to reload less often.

The streamer was able to secure 24 kills in a single game with this loadout equipped, so it’s definitely worth trying out. Be sure to equip these attachments on the Stoner 63 the next time you drop into Warzone, so that you can see why LMGs are still popular.
