Warzone Season 2 Reloaded brought a ton of weapon balancing changes across the board, and CoD expert Metaphor has claimed that this buffed rifle is now the “best AR” in the game.

Just like most major updates, Warzone Season 2 Reloaded completely shook up the meta. The arrival of new weapons like the SOA Subverter, alongside the host of buffs and nerfs has left many players wondering which guns to run.

Assault Rifles are always a popular pick, thanks to their impressive versatility. They can be built to dominate long-range fights, without leaving you completely exposed if you get dragged into a surprise close-quarters engagement.

But after the BP50 was given a substantial nerf, players were looking for a new favorite Assault Rifle. Luckily, Warzone expert Metaphor has found the solution.

In his March 7 video, the YouTuber claimed that the Holger 556 is now the “best AR” in Warzone, after it was “massively buffed” in Season 2 Reloaded.

While the Holger was always a solid option, the update drastically increased its damage and range, making it far more viable on Urzikstan. It also saw its damage range limits adjusted to reduce its dropoff in longer-range battles.

With all of these changes, Metaphor felt that it’s the new king of the Assault Rifle category in Warzone, so be sure to check out his setup below.

Metaphor’s best Holger 556 loadout in Warzone Season 2 Reloaded

  • Barrel: Chrios-6 Match
  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spitfire Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Optic: JAK Glassless Optic
  • Stock: Ascent Lord Stock

Metaphor’s best Holger 556 loadout in Warzone focuses on completely eliminating its recoil and making it extremely accurate at long-range. This was mainly done using the new JAK Glassless Optic, which offers plenty of stability and helps keep the AR on target.

Then, the remaining attachments, the Chrios-6 Match, VT-7 Spitfire Suppressor, Ascent Lord Stock, and Bruen Heavy Support Grip all buff its recoil control while offering additional range and bullet velocity.

With this build, don’t be surprised to see the Holger 556 dominating Warzone in the weeks to come. If you want to recreate the loadout exactly, make sure you also check out how to unlock the JAK Glassless Optic.
