According to WZRanked, the SO-14 Battle Rifle currently has a low pick rate of 0.1%. While it’s far from one of the most popular weapons in the game, WhosImmortal claims that it’s the “perfect” choice for Ashika Island after it was buffed in Season 3 Reloaded.

WhosImmortal explained: “You put this thing on full-auto mode then you are going to shred. Especially here on Ashika Island where the guns are a lot more mid-ranged based.” He then revealed his loadout for the SO-14.

WhosImmortal’s Warzone 2 SO-14 loadout

  • Muzzle: Sakin Tread-40
  • Underbarrel: Edge-47 Grip
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4

Using the SO-14 in full-auto mode increases recoil, so WhosImmortal equips the Sakin Tread-40 muzzle and Edge-47 Grip to bring it under control. Once that’s done, you can use the Aim OP-V4 optic to pick off distant foes with great accuracy.

Coming to the choice of ammunition, the 50 Round Drum grants enough ammo to take out multiple enemies before having to reload. Finally, the 7.62 High Velocity rounds buff bullet velocity so that you can shred through foes.
