November 11, 2022: As Season 5 Reloaded comes to an end, the UGM-8 holds its place among the best Warzone guns. Scroll down for the best attachments to equip.

Season 5 of Warzone is well underway much to the excitement of players. In addition to the patch notes containing a wealth of changes, Raven Software has introduced a range of new weapons into the arsenal in a bid to refresh the Season 5 meta.

One gun making an impact is the UGM-8 LMG which packs a deadly punch on Caldera, Fortune's Keep, and Rebirth Island.

Like most Warzone LMGs, the UGM-8 features a huge magazine and depending on its rate of fire, levels of recoil could prove too hot to handle without a strong set of attachments. With that said, find the best UGM-8 Warzone loadout to use along with the best attachments in this guide.

What is the best UGM-8 Warzone loadout?

MX Silencer
Bernard XL214 736mm
SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
Mercier WT Ancre
M1930 Strife Angled
6.5mm Sakura 125 Round Box
Rear Grip
Hatched Grip
Tight Grip
Perk 2
Fully Loaded

This particular combination of attachments is proving extremely popular in the early stages of Season 5. The incredible levels of stability make the UGM-8 extremely easy to use in mid-range and long-distance duels while the additional ammunition minimises any need to dip out of the action and reload.

Overall, this build is exceptionally powerful and is likely to stay within the meta until Raven Software decides to nerf it.

How to unlock UGM-8

The UGM-8 first featured in Warzone as part of the season 4 battle pass. With Season 5 now underway, all you need to do to unlock the LMG is simply load into the game. There's no need to complete an unlock challenge so you can use it as part of a loadout whenever you like.

Best UGM-8 Warzone attachments

With Season 5 still in its early stages, many players are using this combination of attachments in order to gain the upper hand over the opposition. Here are the best UGM-8 Warzone attachments to use:

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Bernard XL214 736mm
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Mercier WT Ancre
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 125 Round Box
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
  • Perk: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The MX Silencer provides some additional bullet velocity alongside the Bernard barrel which increases damage output. Meanwhile, the rest of the loadout bolsters stability levels to guarantee high levels of accuracy regardless of distance.

Best UGM-8 Warzone perks and equipment

Alongside the best UGM-8 Warzone attachments, we can point you in the direction of a solid combination of perks and equipment. Here's what we recommend.


  • Double Time (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Amped (Perk 3)

The lack of mobility is a problem for any LMG so we've gone with Double Time as the first Perk. Doubling the length of Tactical Sprint enables you to navigate the map quicker while Overkill allows you to use two primary weapons in a single loadout. Try the Armaguerra 43 in close-range scenarios.

Lastly is Amped. The increase in weapon swap speed means you can switch between the UGM-8 and the Armaguerra 43 depending on the situation.

Is the UGM-8 good in Warzone?

With Season 5 in full swing, the UGM-8 is proving extremely popular thanks to its fast time to kill and minimal recoil levels. While its mobility does impact performance, the firepower shines in mid-range engagements.
