The AS44 Assault Rifle is one of the newer assault rifles to join the ever-evolving world of Call of Duty: Warzone, Although it's often overlooked by other ARs in the category, it's one that players should think about using as Season 1 Reloaded of the battle royale nears. It's more than likely to feature in the loadouts of players dropping into Caldera.
Although it does have an incredible rate of fire coupled with amazing damage output, the primary issue with this weapon happens to be the recoil, which can be controlled thanks to various attachments that are available in the Gunsmith.
Keeping that in mind, here are the best AS44 Warzone attachments that will help you control this weapon. With that said, find the best attachments to use along with the best AS44 Warzone loadout in this guide!
How to Unlock AS44 in Warzone Pacific
Despite its high recoil, the AS44 is one of the easier weapons to use on the streets of Caldera. And since it can be unlocked pretty early on in the game, it's sitting quite well with newcomers looking to get the upper hand.
The AR is available to unlock at Level 33, which isn't too much grinding if you decide to use a Double XP Token to speed up the process.
Best AS44 Attachments for Warzone Pacific
A little bit of testing has gone into finding the best attachments for this weapon. With this particular combination, the Assault Rifle will certainly be amongst the best weapons to use when roaming Caldera.
- Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
- Barrel: Kovalevskaya 615mm
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: Zac Skeletal
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
Although this weapon has good mobility, we'll be trading some of it to get added damage onto this weapon. Not only that, some of it needs to be traded in order to compensate for the insane recoil that this weapon has. The F8 Stabilizer helps in vertical recoil control while the Kovalevskaya 615mm improves levels of recoil to make the AS44 more controllable. Most importantly, the latter also adds increased headshot damage, making the weapon a deadly one in close to medium range.
Overall, this build revolves around controlling the recoil of this weapon. Yes, we do sacrifice some mobility, but it's a nice little trade-off. You'd rather shoot in a straight line and move slightly slow, compared to moving quickly but not hitting your mark.
The Sleight of Hand Perk decreases the reload time for this weapon. The Fully Loaded Perk will allow you to drop into Caldera with the highest possible ammo for this weapon.
Best AS44 Loadout in Warzone Pacific
Once the attachments have been equipped, selecting the best Perks for the job is just as important, giving you even more versatility during a match.
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
First up on this list is E.O.D. This perk makes sure you take less damage from explosives (yep it makes you a tank of sorts). With everyone throwing Semtex charges around, this perk is somewhat important.
Next up is Ghost. This perk will allow you to hide easily from enemy spy planes, making you invisible to enemy radar.
Since there's no Overkill in this loadout, we recommend you use the Top Break handgun for now, as your secondary weapon.
Last but not least is Amped. This lets you swap between your weapons quickly. This entire build is all about moving quickly and getting the jump on your enemies. So be ready for quick and intense gunfights.
- Lethal: Semtex
- Tactical: Stun
With the Semtex and Stun as your equipment, you will have an added benefit in the gunfights you walk into, provided you know how to use them correctly.
Is The AS44 Good in Warzone Pacific?
Given that this weapon has a high level of recoil in the game, it may not be the best-suited weapon for many. However, it's relatively easy to use, so it's something you could potentially rely on to succeed in any mid-range engagements over the course of a match.
