November 30, 2022: The Chimera will arrive as part of the Warzone 2 Season One Reloaded update. Scroll down for all there is to know about the new AR.

The best Warzone 2 Chimera loadout will become a hot topic of conversation as players prepare to drop into Call of Duty's latest battle royale experience. The assault rifle (AR) is set to arrive as part of the mid-season content drop arriving on the Warzone 2 release date.


Armed with an integrated suppressor, the Chimera heavily resembles the Honey Badger from Call of Duty Ghosts and could feature in the early metagame. Although the integrated suppressor is great for a stealthy approach, it does influence damage output.

What is the best Warzone 2 Chimera loadout?

With the mid-season update a few weeks away, it's impossible to get an early idea of what the best Chimera loadout could look like.

We expect a build that improves damage output and range to prove popular with a few tweaks to enhance mobility thrown in for good measure. Once we find an unbeatable build, we'll update the guide with the latest information.

Best Warzone 2 Chimera attachments

We already know the Chimera comes with a built-in suppressor meaning it's likely the muzzle slot is out of bounds. Thankfully, the Warzone 2 gunsmith contains plenty of attachments capable of improving the rifle's performance.


After we perform some testing, we'll share a full attachment list and the reasons behind our choices.

How to unlock Chimera in Warzone 2

The Chimera doesn't feature in the Season One battle pass meaning the unlock method for this particular AR is slightly different.

Infinity Ward is yet to share any information on how you can get your hands on the rifle but we expect it to involve some kind of challenge. If you're after an even faster way of unlocking the Chimera, expect it to appear in a store bundle.

Best Warzone 2 Chimera perks and equipment

While we can't share the best Chimera attachments, we can provide a perk package and equipment combination capable of adding a wealth of in-game benefits. Here are our recommendations:



  • Bomb Squad (Base)
  • Battle Hardened (Base)
  • Focus (Bonus)
  • Ghost (Ultimate


  • Semtex (Lethal)
  • Stun Grenade (Tactical)

Is the Chimera good in Warzone 2?

As we've not had any chance to use the Chimera, it's impossible to tell whether it's a viable option in the battle royale. If attachments can compensate for the integrated suppressor that's bound to reduce damage, there's a high chance the AR will be a viable option.
