Activision and Raven Software are no strangers when it comes to springing surprises within Warzone, and on August 24th, they released the all-new RAAL MG into the battle royale, much to the surprise of the community. Although there was no mention of this particular weapon releasing in Season 5, players have been aware of its existence thanks to data miners managing to uncover it within the files of the game all the way back in Season 2.
With Season 5 Reloaded underway, Raven Software continues to make changes to various weaponry in order to maintain some kind of balance, there's every chance that the RAAL MG does find its way into the ever-changing meta as one of the best Warzone guns to use in Verdansk and Rebirth Island. With that said, what exactly is the best RAAL MG loadout to use? Find out in this guide!
RAAL MG Warzone
Compared to other LMGs in the category, the RAAL MG features one of the lowest rates of fire, and while that may sound like a drawback, the steady fire rate enables players to control it at long distances, allowing them to maintain high levels of accuracy onto their intended target. Combine this with the incredibly high damage output that comes as standard, this LMG is more than capable of competing with the likes of the C58 and Krig 6 assault rifles.
As it's an LMG, mobility isn't one of the RAAL MG's strongest features with it often feeling heavy when attempting to navigate around the map as quickly as possible. Thankfully, there is a range of attachments available that can improve mobility as well as increasing its range, but what are the best RAAL MG attachments to equip?
RAAL MG Warzone Best Attachments
After experimenting with various attachment combinations, this is the best we've found by some distance:
- Muzzle: RAAL Monocore
- Barrel: 32.0" RAAL Line Breaker
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
- Underbarrel: FFS Oblique
This particular set of attachments does wonders to the RAAL MG's accuracy levels and range, meaning it can perform well even at extremely long distances. With most Warzone builds, mobility is an afterthought and this is the case with this combination too. While it may be slow to sprint in and out of buildings, the huge increase in long-range performance certainly compensates for it.
Unlike other LMGs, there's no need to equip a larger magazine as it already comes with plenty of ammunition ready to unleash onto a group of unsuspecting opponents.
Best RAAL MG Warzone Loadout
Despite it receiving plenty of nerfs since its addition to the arsenal, the MAC-10 SMG is still one of the very best Warzone SMGs to use in close-quarters combat thanks to its incredible rate of fire and mobility. Check out our full guide to find the best attachments to equip.
Thanks to the addition of Combat Scout and Tempered, Warzone Perk selection has changed significantly in Season 5. After testing a range of different Perk combinations, here are the best to use with the RAAL MG:
- Perk 1: Cold Blooded
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Combat Scout
With many players running Combat Scout, we've selected Cold Blooded as it counters the orange glow that appears if you're hit with incoming gunfire. To create an extremely versatile Warzone loadout, we went with Overkill to equip two primary weapons in the same loadout, and for the third and final Perk, we selected Combat Scout in order to highlight any opposition that you hit with any of the RAAL MG's many bullets.
- Lethal: Throwing Knife
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
This may seem like a strange combination of utility but it has its uses during a match. Use the Throwing Knife to guarantee the kill on a downed opponent in an instant while the Heartbeat Sensor is the perfect tool to scout any opposition in the nearby area that may not be utilising Ghost in their chosen loadouts.
Is The RAAL MG Good In Warzone?
Having dropped into a few Rebirth Island matches, I can safely say that the RAAL MG is definitely up there with the stronger weapons available in the Warzone arsenal. Don't let the slow rate of fire put you off from using a weapon that excels in mid-range engagements thanks to its immensely powerful damage output and range.
If you're looking to move away from assault rifles, I recommend giving the RAAL MG a chance.
There you have it! That's how to equip the RAAL MG for Warzone action. For more news, check out the latest news on the Halloween Event and why players are requesting a solo mode to be added for Rebirth Island.
