Best Striker 45 Warzone loadout

The Striker 45 submachine gun is a compact weapon capable of doing massive damage in close-quarters and mid-range combat. While it's been overshadowed by some of the more popular SMGs available in Warzone, the Striker 45's qualities mean it can still compete with the more popular choices on offer, thanks to its incredible mobility and seemingly limitless customisation options.

With Raven Software issuing another dose of buffs and nerfs as part of the Season 5 update, the Striker 45 could make its way into the meta. Its impressive mobility combined with limitless customisation options allows players to prepare it to suit their style of play.

Best Striker 45 Warzone attachments

  • 400mm Stainless Steel (Barrel)
  • Operator Reflex Sight (Optic)
  • XRK Gen III Survivalist Series (Stock)
  • Merc Foregrip (Underbarrel)

This particular combination of attachments improves levels of accuracy and damage range, minimising any drop-off which is ideal for those mid-range duels.

The merc foregrip features regularly on many Warzone loadouts as it is the best way to reduce recoil. Low recoil on the Striker 45 enables you to maintain focus on your intended target without having to readjust your aim in the middle of a gunfight.

Best Striker 45 Warzone perks and equipment

Once the best Striker 45 attachments are ready for battle, finding a strong combination of perks and equipment is the next step in order to build the ultimate loadout. Here's what we recommend.


  • EOD (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Amped (Perk 3)

This set of perks continues to prove popular in Season 5. EOD increases explosive resistance while Overkill enables you to use two primary weapons in the same loadout. We recommend pairing the Striker 45 with the GRAU 5.56 assault rifle.

Last and by no means least, we've gone with Amped. The increase in weapon swap speed allows you to chop and change between the two guns depending on the situation.

Is the Striker 45 good in Warzone?

Although the Striker 45 never featured in the meta during the previous seasons, the SMG is experiencing a resurgence in Season 5. The incredible levels of hip-fire accuracy combined with non-existent recoil make it one of the very best guns to use on Caldera, Fortune's Keep, and Rebirth Island.
