Warzone expert TheKoreanSavage has revealed a simple trick and loadout to make the game’s worst gun a fast-killing machine.

With so many weapon options to choose from in Warzone, it’s no surprise that players are continuing to find viable guns outside of the meta, as the sheer amount of attachments and build variety can lead to some surprising results.

In fact, Warzone expert TheKoreanSavage believes they have turned the game’s worst weapon into an “absolute machine” with their loadout and a simple tip that makes the gun much more effective.

The Sidewinder hasn’t been the most popular weapon in Warzone, with many describing it as the game’s worst weapon. That said, TheKoreanSavage believes that players have been using it wrong, as he claims that the weapon is “insane” if you use it the way he does.

TheKoreanSavage said that if you build the weapon correctly, and use it as a long-range semi-automatic weapon instead of full-auto, the Sidewinder is actually a viable option that “doesn’t move and kills really fast.”

Luckily, TheKoreanSavage shared this low recoil Warzone Sidewinder loadout, which you can check out below.

TheKoreanSavage Warzone Sidewinder loadout

  • Barrel: Tempus Predator Precision Barrel
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support
  • Rear Grip: RB Borealis Grip
  • Stock: RB Regal Heavy Stock
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x

According to TheKoreanSavage, this build will allow you to get the most out of the weapon, reducing its recoil so that it “doesn’t move” in semi-automatic. The trick is to use the weapon as a long-range semi-automatic weapon, pairing it with an SMG for those close-ranged engagements.

Further, the damage profile of TheKoreanSavage’s Sidewinder build is “kinda crazy,” as the clips in the video show him eliminating enemies in an extremely fast fashion.

So, if you’re looking for a new semi-automatic weapon to replace the nerfed MTZ Interceptor, definitely give this weapon a go, as there’s a chance it could be one of the meta options for Season 1 Reloaded.
