Season 4 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 4 meta.

The new season includes the Fortune's Keep map, a new Battle Pass, and a range of Caldera map changes in a bid to improve gameplay. One of three new guns appearing over the course of the season is the UGM-8 light machine gun (LMG).

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.

This particular combination of attachments is proving extremely popular in the early stages of Season 4. 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

Like the previous Warzone seasons, two guns feature within the Season 4 Battle Pass. The UGM-8 appears at Tier 31.

We recommend purchasing the Premium bundle for 25 Tier Skips and using a Double Battle Pass XP token to get your hands on the UGM-8 as fast as possible.


Best UGM-8 Warzone Attachments

With Season 4 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: G16 2.5x
  • 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: On-Hand

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 Owen Gun in close-range scenarios.

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

Is The UGM-8 Good in Warzone?

In the early stages of Season 4, the UGM-8 is arguably the best weapon to use in all of Warzone thanks to its laser-like accuracy and incredibly fast time to kill.
