share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Season 2 of Warzone Pacific is now underway much to the excitement of players hoping the delay has allowed Raven Software to address numerous issues with the battle royale. The latest season of post-launch content sees the arrival of Anna as one of three new Operators alongside the KG M40, a brand new Assault Rifle (AR).

Armed with a fast rate of fire, the latest addition to the Warzone arsenal is said to rival the NZ-41, making it the ideal gun to use in mid-range and long-distance duels on Caldera. Despite its strengths, the recoil levels are difficult to control without the right set of attachments equipped.

With that said, find the best KG M40 loadout for Warzone along with the best attachments to equip to guarantee success over the course of a match.

How To Unlock KG M40

The KG M40 first appeared in the Season 2 Battle Pass and with Season 3 underway, players must score three Double Kill medals with an AR in a single match 15 times. Try dropping into some Caldera Clash or Rebirth Resurgence matches to complete the challenge as fast as possible.

Best KG M40 Warzone Attachments

This particular build focuses on improving the accuracy and range of the KG M40. Additional mobility is useful but the ability to outgun an opponent from any distance is far more important.

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: Krausnick 700mm 01V
  • Optic: M38/Slate 3.5x Custom
  • Stock: Krausnick 12V
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: .30-06 60 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Compared to other Vanguard assault rifles, the KG M40 is extremely powerful in those competitive mid-range engagements. The combination of Mercury Silencer and M1941 Hand Stop provides improvements to recoil levels while the Leather Grip increases aim-down-sight speed to improve reaction times.

As for the rest of the loadout, the huge magazine enables you to score multiple kills without the need to reload. Overall, this build is incredibly strong and is highly likely to feature in the Season 2 meta.

Best KG M40 Warzone Perks and Equipment

Once you've equipped the best KG M40 attachments, taking time to prioritise Perk and Equipment selection is just as important as selecting the best barrel and muzzle combination. Here are the best Perks and Equipment to use alongside the LMG.


  • Cold-Blooded (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Combat Scout (Perk 3)

This particular Perk combination has cemented itself within the Warzone meta. Cold-Blooded counters any players using Combat Scout, preventing the orange glow from appearing while Overkill enables you to select two primary weapons in the same loadout. We recommend pairing the KG M40 with an MP40 for maximum versatility.

Last and by no means least is Combat Scout. With opponents difficult to spot in amongst the greenery of Caldera, land your shots to highlight the target with an orange glow to spot them with ease.


  • Throwing Knife (Lethal)
  • Stun Grenade (Tactical)

The days of a Heartbeat Sensor and Semtex dominating Warzone are long gone! To guarantee a quick kill, the Throwing Knife is the perfect tool for the job alongside the Stun Grenade which slows the movement of the opposition, making them easy pickings for the KG M40.

Is The KG M40 Good in Warzone?

After spending some time mastering the KG M40, it's a strong assault rifle but compared to the likes of the STG 44 and Automaton, it's tricky to see where the gun will slot into the ever-changing metagame. For those looking for an alternative to the meta, I highly recommend giving the KG M40 a try.
