Looking for the best Rebirth Island loadout to run in Warzone Season 5? CoD expert WhosImmortal has shown off the best setup to help you dominate on the smaller map.

Choosing the right Warzone loadout is no easy task, and after the EX1 Energy Rifle and RA 225 SMG were added in the Season 5 update, it’s never been tougher to find the right combination.

Life is made even more complicated by the multiple different maps, with Caldera favoring long-range weapons and smaller maps like Rebirth Island throwing you into more frantic close-range encounters.

Rebirth is an incredibly popular mode, but its more compact map requires a completely different setup to its larger counterpart if you want to succeed. Luckily, Warzone expert WhosImmortal has highlighted the best Rebirth Island loadout after the Season 5 update.

In his August 28 video, the YouTuber identified the STG44 and Type 100 as the ideal Rebirth Island combination in Season 5. The STG44 is an easy-to-use AR perfect for mid-range fights, while the Type 100 can shred enemies if they get too close.

He admitted that the Type 100 is harder to use than other Vanguard SMGs, but insisted that the payoff was worth it thanks to a “general TTK on this class setup that is very very strong.”

WhosImmortal also provided loadouts for each weapon, with the STG44 build focusing on reducing recoil and making the AR even more straightforward to use. Then, his Type 100 loadout revolves around strafe speed rather than sheer damage, because “if you’re going for pure TTK then the recoil sucks.”

Check out his loadout for both weapons below.

  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
  • Perk: Acrobatic
  • Perk 2: Quick

WhosImmortal also ran through the best Perks to use on Rebirth Island regardless of the guns you have equipped. Despite its nerf in Season 5, Serpentine remains a strong choice as it reduces incoming damage when springing by 20%.

Then, Overkill allows you to bring two primary weapons along to ensure you’re covered in every situation. Finally, he went for Combat Scout to reveal enemies to you and your squad through walls after they have been damaged, making it far easier for them to slip away and heal.

So, if you’re stuck on which weapons to pick on Rebirth Island after all the buffs and nerfs in Warzone Season 5, the STG44 and Type 100 could be just the pair you’re looking for.
