LMGs are extremely powerful tools in Warzone Pacific, and a viral TikTok has revealed an MG42 loadout with literally no recoil.

Vanguard’s Bren LMG has taken over Warzone Pacific thanks to its solid range and minimal recoil, but a loadout for the MG42 could knock it off its pedestal.

Revealed through a viral TikTok, this MG42 loadout has literally zero recoil, which makes it a devastatingly powerful choice for long-range fights in Caldera. The TikTok creator revealed the attachments you need to use, so here’s how to build this zero recoil MG42 loadout for yourself.

Low recoil builds have always dominated Warzone’s meta, with weapons such as the Grau 5.56, Krig 6, and the Automaton being some of the most used weapons. Yet none have been as accurate as this MG42 with zero recoil.

Usually, you have to pull down on your thumbstick to control a weapon’s recoil, but not with this MG42 loadout. TikTok creator klproductionsog shows that you can take your hands completely off the thumbsticks and it still doesn’t move an inch, making it extremely easy to use at long-range.

You won’t be darting around and finessing opponents because of this loadout’s weight, but any enemy caught in its sights doesn’t stand a chance. It’ll be especially effective against snipers who aren’t prepared to be melted by a fully automatic gun at range.

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: VDD 890MM 32M Luftschutz 
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: VDD 64M
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop 
  • Magazine: 6.5 Sakura 125 Rounds Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip 
  • Perk: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

As you’d expect from a zero recoil loadout, all of these attachments are to improve the MG42’s accuracy and damage range. One of the most useful attachments is the Tight Grip Perk, as this makes the MG42 get more accurate as you hold down the trigger.

Also, the TikTok recommends you use the ‘VDD 54M 32M’ Stock but this doesn’t exist, so the closest Stock is the VDD 64M which increases accuracy and recoil control.
