Popular YouTuber FaZe Booya has revealed a slept-on Warzone 2 Rifle loadout that he’s been dominating close and mid-ranged battles with on Ashika Island.

Warzone 2 has so many choices to pick from when it comes to Primary weapons, as since Season 3 Reloaded introduced some strong Handguns there hasn’t much competition in the Secondary department.

However, many still like to run Overkill, and popular Warzone 2 content creator FaZe Booya has revealed a strong new AR loadout that’s “amazing” for close and mid-ranged engagements, competing with SMGs and making it a perfect Sniper support weapon.

The gun in question is the STB 556, which is heavily slept-on according to WZ Ranked‘s popularity percentages, as the Assualt Rifle only has a 0.8% pick rate.

Here’s FaZe Booya’s full STB 556 loadout for those who want to take advantage of this underrated Assault Rifle.

FaZe Booya’s Warzone 2 STB 556 loadout

  • Laser: 7MW Quick Fire Laser
  • Muzzle: ZULU-60
  • Stock: Bruen MX9 Stock
  • Comb: FTAC C11 Razor
  • Magazine: 42 Round Mag

Booya has built this STB 556 loadout for close-to-mid-ranged engagements, hence his use of the 7MW Quick Fire Laser, Bruen MX9 Stock, and FTAC C11 Razor comb, as all three of these will improve the STB 556’s mobility, with faster aim down sight, sprint to fire, and movement speeds.

The ZULU-60 muzzle will provide a much-needed boost to bullet velocity and damage range, allowing you to taker enemies on at medium range.

Lastly, the 42 Round Mag is essential, as this will allow you to take on multiple enemies and also finish opponents off without having to reloaded and dip out of the fight.

Booya recommends this STB 556 loadout for Ashika Island, claiming that it “absolutely shreds up-close,” being a great Sniper support weapon.
