  • Muzzle: SA Schweigen DX
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Laser: Corvus PEQ Beam-5
  • Ammunition: .410 Gauge Incendiary

To kick off the best Riveter loadout for Warzone, we picked the SA Draven-20 Long Barrel and SA Schweigen DX Muzzle combination to improve the gun’s bullet velocity, range, recoil control, and aim idle stability as well as keep you out of the enemies’ minimap.

Then, we chose the Merc Foregrip Underbarrel to enhance the aim of walking stability, hipfire, Tac Stance spread, and recoil control. Combined with the Corvus PEQ Beam-5 further boosts the hipfire and Tac Stance spread alongside the hip recoil control.

Lastly, the .410 Gauge Incendiary Ammunition grants incendiary damage which affects the enemy by lighting them on fire and receiving constant harm until the fire is off.
