Luckily, JGOD claims the forgotten Kastov 762 Assault Rifle has reentered the meta competition to be players’ favorite, and here’s his best loadout for it.

JGOD’s best Kastov 762 loadout for Warzone 2

  • Muzzle: ZLR Talon 5
  • Barrel: KAS-10 584mm
  • Optic: Aim-OP V4
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag

To kick off JGOD‘s best Warzone 2 Kastov 762 loadout, he opted for the ZLR Talon 5 muzzle to improve bullet velocity, damage range, and recoil smoothness. Combined with the FTAC Ripper 56 underbarrel, it further enhances recoil steadiness and improves hip fire accuracy.

Then, he chose the KAS-10 584mm barrel to boost movement and ADS speed, which allows players to move around the map faster, especially on smaller maps like Vondel and Ashika Island.

He picked the Aim-OP V4 optic that allows players to hunt enemies that are at far distances, mainly in Warzone 2’s Al Mazrah map. And lastly, the 40 Round magazine improves magazine capacity. However, JGOD pointed out in his video that this might be one of the few downsides of the gun, as its competitors have better ammo capacity.
