Warzone 2 guru Metaphor has shown off a deadly no-recoil loadout for an underrated SMG that could dominate Al Mazrah in Season 1.

There’s no shortage of weapons to choose from in Warzone 2, no matter which playstyle you prefer. Assault Rifles offer great versatility for those who like it play it safe, while Sniper Rifles can quickly send enemies to the Gulag at long range.

Since the game launched in November, SMGs have ruled the roost, but finding the best option in such a stacked category can be difficult. Luckily, Warzone 2 expert Metaphor has outlined a powerful SMG build that is ideal for both close and mid-range encounters.

In his December 3 video, the YouTuber explained that the Minibak is being “slept on big time” in Warzone 2, and can easily be a meta SMG with the right setup.

He praised the Minibak’s impressive magazine size, which essentially gives players a “free attachment” compared to other guns in its class, allowing them to further improve its accuracy without worrying about ammo.

“This thing is super freaking quick and has no recoil,” he said in the video, and while he warned players that they won’t be dropping enemies at ridiculous ranges, it can more than hold its own at a decent range.

Check out Metaphor’s full Minibak loadout for Warzone 2 below:

Metaphor’s best Minibak loadout in Warzone 2 Season 1

  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp
  • Ammo: 9mm Overpressured
  • Rear Grip: True-TAC Grip
  • Stock: Otrezat Stock 
  • Laser: FTAC Grimline Laser

This setup is geared around keeping the Minibak on target, allowing it to make use of its solid fire rate to secure quick kills. Metaphor pointed out that the key to this loadout is the FTAC Castle Comp, which eliminates nearly all of the weapon’s kick to make it laser-accurate.

He also said the 9mm Overpressured rounds are key for this build. They inflict serious flinch with every shot, which disorientates enemies and “lets you win a lot of gunfights you probably shouldn’t have won to begin with.”

So, if you’re looking for a new SMG to run, or an effective Sniper support weapon, consider trying Metaphor’s Minibak loadout on your next visit to Al Mazrah.
