Best Sten Warzone Loadout

When it comes to making an impact in Season 2 Reloaded of Warzone, submachine guns (SMG) enable players to excel in close-quarters combat. Like many weapons in the category, the Sten features a fast rate of fire alongside incredible mobility levels which makes it very easy to outplay any opposition.

While the high fire rate is useful, it can cause some unwanted recoil from the Sten but thanks to the Gunsmith, there are several attachments that can lower the kick to make the SMG a force to be reckoned with in Caldera and Rebirth Island. In this guide, find the best Sten Warzone attachments along with the best Sten Warzone loadout.

What Is The Best Sten Warzone Loadout?

With a variety of attachment combinations to select, it's tricky to determine a build that stands out from the crowd but after a few Rebirth Reinforced matches, we've found ten attachments that excel on the battlefield. Find the full list of attachments in the table below.

No. 3 Rifle Brake
Hockenson 348mm B13S
Slate Reflector
Gaiwan Custom
M1941 Hand Stop
7.62 Gorenko 32 Round Mags
Hollow Point
Rear Grip
Polymer Grip
Perk 2

This particular build extends damage range in addition to controlling levels of recoil. The unwanted kick when firing for a prolonged period of time disappears completely, allowing you to deal some additional damage at further distances.

How to Unlock Sten in Warzone

The Sten is incredibly straightforward to unlock in Warzone and Vanguard. Simply reach Level 10 to get your hands on this surprisingly powerful SMG. While it's easy to unlock, it will take some time to gain access to all of the attachments. Pop a Double Weapon XP Token to speed up the process.

Best Sten Warzone Attachments

Due to the characteristics of the Sten, players can utilise a build that's similar to the MP40 in order to maximise damage output and movement speed over the course of a match.

  • Muzzle: No. 3 Rifle Brake
  • Barrel: Hockenson 348mm B13S
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Gaiwan Custom
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 32 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Momentum
  • Perk 2: Quick

Despite this combination of attachments slightly reducing the levels of range, the Sten's additional accuracy and mobility make it a deadly weapon in close-quarters combat. The Hockenson barrel drastically improves damage output while the Gaiwan Custom stock provides some additional mobility

The small magazine has been replaced with a 32-round magazine to give you the ability to eliminate multiple opponents without the need to dip out of the action to reload. All in all, this Sten build is particularly strong in scenarios where levels of movement can decide the outcome of a gunfight.

Best Sten Warzone Loadout

With the best set of attachments equipped and ready for action, turning your attention to focus on the remaining areas of the loadout can be just as important when it comes to finding further advantages. Everything from the best Perks to which combination of equipment can allow you to make even more of an impact in Caldera.


  • Double Time (Perk 1)
  • Ghost (Perk 2)
  • Battle Hardened (Perk 3)

Double Time doubles the length of Tactical Sprint, allowing you to maximise the Sten's incredible mobility while Ghost conceals your location from Spy Planes called in by players looking to send you the Gulag. Lastly is Battle Hardened. Due to the effects of stun grenades, this Perk makes it much easier to maintain focus on your intended target even if they attempt to slow your movement.


  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Despite changes from Raven Software, this combination of equipment is still a solid choice. Use the Semtex to deal additional damage to the opposition or stick it to an oncoming vehicle for an explosive result. With plenty of areas where tracking a target can be difficult, the Heartbeat Sensor is ideal for keeping tabs on any nearby threats.

Is The Sten Good in Warzone?

Having used this build in several Vanguard Royale matches, I can say that there are very few SMGs that are stronger than the Sten in close-range combat. The fast rate of fire alongside the huge magazine is perfect for scoring plenty of kills and I would highly recommend using it.

That's how to prepare the Sten for action in Warzone Pacific! For more guides, check out our best SVT-40 loadout and the best Vanguard PPSH loadout.
