Best AC-42 Loadout for Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 might not be a perfect game but it does have a good number of weapons to have fun with, even if the number could be bigger, as players are still looking for the perfect loadout for their weapons, which is why we have decided to make a Battlefield 2042 AC-42 Loadout.

Jump To

There are a decent amount of weapons you can try out in Battlefield 2042 and they all have some variety to them, especially when you bring in the Specialists who have unique abilities, so anyone who wants to use the game’s Assault Rifles will want to see why we think the AC-42 might be a solid choice, especially with this loadout.

Best AC-42 Loadout

While most weapons in Battlefield 2042 excel in one area and fail at another, the AC-42 is a fairly balanced Assault Rifle in the game, though that also means it doesn’t pack the biggest punch, which is why we will be making it stronger in this Loadout guide.

AC-42 Attachments

Here's which attachments work best on the AC-42:

  • Muzzle: Cobra Grip
  • Scope: Maul Hybrid
  • Ammunition: Extended Mag
  • Mount: Tactical Compensator

Considering how solid the AC-42 already is, fixing the gun's accuracy and range is the main priority, which is why the Maul Hybrid works as a solid scope for the weapon.

The Tactical Compensator makes for a solid mount that also adds to the range you can have with the AC-42 in Battlefield 2042, letting you shoot enemies from even further than normal.

AC-42 Secondary, Throwable, and Gadget

  • Secondary: MP28
  • Throwable: Frag
  • Gadget: IBA Armor Plate

When your AC-42 runs out of ammo, it's always good to have a pistol with solid damage, which is why the MP28 is a really good secondary weapon to have with you, dealing solid damage.

Few things in life can make your problems go away like explosions, which is why you'll want the Frag grenade to go with your AC-42 in Battlefield 2042, as you can take out some enemies or make them disperse with the said explosion.

Lastly, you'll want to protect yourself from enemies, so pick the IBA Armor Plate for the sake of defence.

AC-42 Stat Improvement

The AC-42's base stats are as follows:

  • Firepower: 50
  • Accuracy: 56
  • Range: 54
  • Handling: 50

Once you add the above attachments to your loadout, your stat spread improves to this:

  • Firepower: 50
  • Accuracy: 63
  • Range: 59
  • Handling: 45

Thanks to the increase in accuracy and range, the AC-42 becomes a much more reliable weapon that can take down most enemies, with a small sacrifice in handling not really hindering your plan to mow down enemies in Battlefield 2042.
