The STG 44 Assault Rifle is one of the more popular weapons of choice in Season 1 of Warzone Pacific. As Season 1 Reloaded of the battle royale draws near, the rifle may receive a nerf in a bid to maintain some kind of weapon balance on the streets of Caldera.
Armed with an incredible damage output, this particular AR excels in close-quarters and mid-range engagements but does fall short at longer distances. With several attachments to equip in the Gunsmith, the flaws of the rifle can be addressed by equipping the best STG44 Warzone attachments. With that said, find the best attachments to use along with the best STG44 Warzone loadout in this guide!
How to Unlock STG44 in Warzone Pacific
Unlocking the STG44 isn't a big deal in Warzone Pacific. There are no challenges that need to be completed. Nor do you need to complete any specific mission in order to get your hands on this weapon.
All you need to do is boot up the game and hop into it. This weapon is available at Rank 1 itself, so thank Activision for not putting you through the grind early on!
Best STG44 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: VDD 760mm 05B
- Optic: G16 2.5x
- Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
- Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 8mm Kurz 45 Round Drums
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Rubber Grip
- Perk: Vital
- Perk 2: On-Hand
Although this weapon has good mobility, we'll be trading some of it to get added damage onto this weapon. F8 Stabilizer, VDD 760mm 05B, m1941 Hand Stop, and VDD 34S Weighted all sacrifice movement speed for better recoil management, range and accuracy.
Overall, this build revolves around adding increased damage to this weapon, so don't be stunned if you find yourself taking down groups of enemies with ease. The Vital perk adds increased torso damage. While the On-hand perk will allow you to switch between weapons easily.
Best STG44 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
Kicking things off is E.O.D. This perk makes sure you take less damage from explosives (yep it makes you a tank of sorts). 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. It's a broken weapon for now, so enjoy it before a fix comes in.
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 STG44 Good in Warzone Pacific?
As mentioned before, this weapon is an absolute beast when used with the above perks. Yes, you will be losing out on some mobility with the entire build, but you will be hitting your enemies hard.
If you're able to hit them without being noticed, it will all be over for your enemies before they even get wind of what happened.
And with that, we come to an end to our STG44 guide. Happy hunting soldier.
