Choosing the right combination of weapon attachments in Warzone 2 is crucial to securing that victory, and CoD expert Metaphor has shown off a must-use Underbarrel that virtually removes recoil on every weapon.

Warzone 2 players are always looking for any way to gain an edge in a gunfight, from using the meta weapons all the way down to the individual attachments. Finding the ideal combination can completely transform a loadout and offer huge advantages.

On a map as large as Al Mazrah, parts that decrease recoil tend to dominate the meta, especially on long-range guns like the RPK. It’s no surprise then that with each new weapon balancing update, pro players dig deep into the stats to find the next overpowered option.

Now, Warzone 2 expert Metaphor has revealed an essential Underbarrel that he claims will transform any automatic weapon into a no-recoil monster.

The attachment in question is the Lockgrip Precision-40, which according to the in-game menus offers better hip fire accuracy, aim walking steadiness, and recoil steadiness, at the expense of ADS speed.

While the numbers don’t seem all that impressive compared to other attachments that offer similar bonuses, Metaphor believed it will become the go-to attachment in Warzone 2 going forward.

“I tried this for one game guys and I’m not joking, this thing is completely crazy,” said the YouTuber. “I’m not going to lie man, this is the new meta.”

Metaphor experimented with the Lockgrip Precision-40 on the Kastov 762, but insisted that it can remove the recoil on any automatic weapon.

“No matter what gun you’re using, if you’re using an Underbarrel replace it with that. Try it on any gun,” he continued. “Any full-auto, try this thing on. You’re going to see in this gameplay, I’m absolutely lasering people.”

Metaphor then demonstrated the attachment in a Warzone 2 match and the difference was clear to see. His Kastov was devastatingly accurate in every single fight, able to land most shots at long range with ease.

It’s not clear at the moment if the Lockgrip Precision-40 is glitched, offering a bigger accuracy buff than advertised, or if the developers intended for it to be so effective.

We’ll have to wait and see if Infinity Ward introduce a nerf in the delayed Season 2 update to keep the Underbarell in line with other attachments in its category. For now, though, if you’re trying to create a no-recoil loadout, the Lockgrip Precision-40 is a must-use.
