How to unlock STG 44 in Warzone
Unlocking the STG 44 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.

Best Warzone STG 44 attachments
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: MX Silencer
- Barrel: VDD 760mm 05B
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mag
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk: Vital
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
Although this weapon has good mobility, we'll be trading some of it to get added damage onto this weapon. The MX Silencer, VDD 760mm 05B, M1941 Hand Stop, and VDD 34S Weighted Stock 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 Fully Loaded gives you a full supply of ammunition.
Best STG 44 Warzone perks and equipment
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.
- EOD (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Combat Scout (Perk 3)
Kicking things off is EOD. This perk makes sure you take less damage from explosives (it makes you a tank of sorts). Next up is Overkill. This perk will allow you to hide easily from enemy spy planes, making you invisible to enemy radar.
Last but not least is Combat Scout. This allows you to highlight a target you've hit, making them much easier to see in amongst the foliage of Caldera and the darker areas of Rebirth Island.
- 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.
