Warzone 2’s STB 556 is an excellent Assault Rifle option and with the right attachments, Ean ‘FaZe Booya’ Chase has created a zero recoil loadout that’s very easy to use.
Warzone 2 players are getting to grips with all of the changes that arrived with the Season 1 Reloaded update. In addition to weapon buffs and nerfs, the devs also rolled out updates that addressed some of the game’s ongoing bugs, as well as finally bringing Loadout Drops to Warzone 2.
The Loadout Drop change will allow players to get their hands on Warzone 2’s best guns much faster than before. If you’re still wondering which weapons to use, Warzone expert FaZe Booya has discovered a powerful STB 556 Assault Rifle loadout.
The STB 556 is flying under the radar as a medium to long-range AR, with most players praising it for its close-range utility. However, FaZe Booya proves that with the right attachments the STB 556 is one of the easiest weapons to use with virtually zero recoil.
FaZe Booya Warzone 2 STB 556 loadout
- Barrel: Bruen Turaco 686mm (+.50 lb, +.40 in)
- Optic: Aim OP-V4 (-1.65 in)
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56 (+.80 oz, +.40 in)
- Rear Grip: STIP-40 Grip (+1.00 oz, +.45 in)
- Magazine: 42 Round Mag
To turn the STB 556 into a laserbeam, Booya opts for attachments that increase accuracy and recoil control. The Bruen Turaco 686mm Barrel is invaluable as it delivers the former qualities as well as suppresses your shots and increases damage range.
FaZe Booya explains that mid-range gunfights are ideal for the STB 556: “Very low recoil, pretty good at long-range, really good at medium and close-range.” For this reason, the STB 556 is a fantastic Sniper support weapon in Warzone 2.
The STIP-40 Grip and FTAC Ripper 56 add another boost to recoil control and accuracy. Make sure to tune the attachments with the values above. While Booya chooses the Aim OP-V4 Optic, he explains that this attachment is interchangeable with the Optic that you’re most comfortable with.
Make sure to try this loadout the next time you hop into a Warzone 2 game. For more, check out these other guides as well:
