The Lienna 57 arrived in Warzone with the Season 5 Reloaded update, but it’s struggled to make an impression on the meta so far. However, the latest stats show it has the highest win percentage in the game, despite a poor pick rate.

With Warzone Season 5 Reloaded serving as the last major update before Warzone 2 launches, many players are looking to shake up their loadout ahead of the sequel.

Familiar weapons like the Armaguerra 43 and Cooper Carbine have been dominating the meta as of late, and you’ll run into enemies using the same guns consistently. That being said, there are a host of more obscure picks that are still effective in the final season.

One of these is the Lienna 57, which despite being way off the meta in terms of how players are using the weapon, actually has the best win rate in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.

According to WZ Ranked, the Lienna 57 currently tops the charts when it comes to victories, boasting a 4.37% win rate. This places it ahead of the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle and UGM-8 in second and third place, making the new LMG Warzone’s most successful gun.

Meanwhile, meta options like the Armgaurra 43 and MP40 have a win rate of just 3.31 and 2.19 respectively.

Despite these impressive figures, the Lienna 57 only has a pick rate of 0.28, which places it way down the leaderboard as the 50th most popular weapon this season.

lienna 57 loadout in warzone

The Lienna 57 was one of the new weapons that came in the Season 5 Reloaded update, alongside the BP50, but has so far failed to make much of an impression. Based on these stats, the LMG could be an underrated beast that’ll give you an advantage in your next match.

To make the most of its capabilities, we’ve included the best Lienna 57 loadout that helped it achieve its stellar win rate below:

Best Lienna 57 loadout for Warzone Season 5 Reloaded

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Frei 432mm Shrouded
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Stock: Baumann GMK-2
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 75 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Perk: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Surplus

When it was released, the Lienna 57 was billed as a compact LMG that’s “capable of high accuracy during sustained fire at short to medium ranges.” This combination of attachments keeps a lot of its recoil in check, making it incredibly effective in long-range fights too.

The extra ammo capacity offered by the 8mm Klauser 75 Round Drums also makes it even more deadly in close-quarters combat, allowing you to wide a squad before you have to worry about reloading.

If you’re looking for something a little different to run ahead of Warzone 2, we’d heavily recommend trying out this Lienna 57 setup paired with one of the game’s best SMGs.
