December 6, 2023: Season 1 of the Urzikstan era is now underway and we've updated the best Warzone Chimera loadout along with the best attachments.

The best Warzone Chimera loadout remains a hot topic of conversation as players look for the best guns to use. The battle royale contains an extensive weapon arsenal and this particular assault rifle (AR) possesses plenty of unique characteristics that allow you to make an impact over the course of a match during the early stages of Season 1.

Armed with an integrated suppressor, the Chimera heavily resembles the Honey Badger from Call of Duty Ghosts and could find itself in the Season 1 meta as players get to grips with recent buffs and nerfs.

Before we take a closer look at the best Warzone Chimera loadout, check out our guides showcasing the best AR and the latest information on the best ranked play loadouts for competitive play.

What is the best Warzone Chimera loadout?

  • Barrel: 10" SA Phoenix
  • Laser: 1mW Quick Fire Laser
  • Stock: TRX-56 Stock
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Flash Grip
  • Perks: EOD, Battle Hardened, Escapist, Combat Scout
  • Grenades: Semtex, Stun Grenade

Although this build doesn't enhance damage or the rate of fire, it does improve the Chimera's range, accuracy, and handling levels which is great news if you utilise an aggressive style of play in Al Mazrah.

The mobility of the Chimera is already excellent but we've gone with a laser to drastically improve aim-down sight speed which makes all the difference when reaction times are the key to success.

Best Warzone Chimera attachments

We already know the Chimera comes with a built-in suppressor but you can switch it out for another muzzle if you wish. However, we've found a build that utilises the suppressor to your advantage. Take a look at the full attachment list below so you can deal plenty of damage for the rest of Season 6:

  • Barrel: 10" SA Phoenix
  • Laser: 1mW Quick Fire Laser
  • Stock: TRX-56 Stock
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Flash Grip

With aggression in mind, this particular set of attachments focuses on fast reaction time and improvements to accuracy to ensure your shots hit the intended target every time. To improve aim-down sight speed, the 1mW Quick Fire Laser comes into its own while the pairing of the TRX-56 stock and the Bruen Flash Grip provides extra boosts to handling and accuracy.

Overall, the Chimera is extremely easy to use in Warzone and in mid-range engagements, it's a viable option if you want to run and gun the opposition.

Best Warzone Chimera perks and equipment

Once the best Chimera attachments are ready to go, we can provide a perk package and equipment combination capable of adding a wealth of in-game benefits. Here are our recommendations:


  • Perk 1; EOD
  • Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Perk 3: Escapist
  • Perk 4: Combat Scout

It's hard to go wrong with EOD and Battle Hardened thanks to the increased resistance to lethal and tactical equipment they both provide.

Up next is Escapist, which increases movement speed when downed, prone, and crouched. Last but not least is Combat Scout. When you hit the target with the Chimera, you'll ping the opponent for you and your squadmates so you can see where they head for a short time.


  • Semtex (Lethal)
  • Stun Grenade (Tactical)

Is the Chimera good in Warzone?

After using the Chimera in Al Mazrah and Vondel, it's a solid option if you want to rush around the map and get up close and personal with the opposition. Although it's an AR, it's more than capable of contending with some SMGs that are on offer. However, at longer distances, it's tricky to handle compared to more stable ARs in the category.
