Warzone 2 expert Luke ‘Metaphor’ Canning has revealed a deadly dual-wield weapon loadout that can be used to completely annihilate the competition during battles.

There is a wide assortment of powerful weapons for you to choose from in Warzone 2, with SMGs being deadly options for close-range encounters, and Sniper Rifles letting you pick off enemies from a distance.

Now that Warzone 2 Season 2 is drawing near, players are wondering which weapons are the best options to try out before the update arrives. According to Warzone 2 expert Metaphor, the Chimera is an extremely viable option.

In his video, Metaphor stated: “If you guys haven’t been using this gun then I do recommend it. It’s pretty damn good. I don’t recommend a long-range version of it, but a close-range version of it is definitely worth picking up.”

He described the performance of the Chimera Assault Rifle as “insane” in Warzone 2. Metaphor also revealed the attachments that he used to create his loadout that’s perfect for close-range battles.

Metaphor’s Chimera loadout in Warzone 2

  • Barrel: 10 SA” Phoenix
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4
  • Stock: TRX-56 Stock
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision-40

The Chimera made use of the Point-G3P 04 laser to buff hip fire accuracy, recoil control, and sprint-to-fire speed. The D37 Grip also provides additional recoil control so that the weapon can beam enemies.

The Cronen Mini Pro optic is a solid choice that helps you pick off enemies from a distance. The 45 Round Magazine ensures that the Chimera has enough ammo to take out multiple foes, and the TRX-56 Stock stabilizes the weapon.

With these attachments, he was able to take out enemies extremely fast, so it’s worth trying this loadout in Warzone 2. With Season 2 on the way, it remains to be seen where the Chimera will fit in the meta.
