October 27, 2022: Despite further weapon balancing, the Lienna 57 doesn't feature in the Warzone meta. However, it makes a great alternative. Scroll down for all you need to know.

The best Warzone Lienna 57 loadout is the talk of the town as the battle royale enters the second half of season 5. The light machine gun (LMG) is one of two new weapons to arrive in the final mid-season update before attention eventually moves to Warzone 2.

Armed with a moderate rate of fire, this compact LMG is capable of competing in close and mid-range engagements but thanks to the slight damage drop-off, long-distance duels can prove problematic. However, a strong attachment combination can rectify this and transform it into a long-range menace that could shake up the current meta.

Best Warzone Lienna 57 attachments

After spending time testing various attachment combinations, we found this particular build excels when taking on a faraway opponent. Here's the full list of attachments for the LMG:

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Frei 432mm Shrouded
  • Optic: 1931 Variable 4-8x
  • Stock: Wenger NH Adjustable
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short 72 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

This set of attachments does impact levels of mobility and although movement and sprint-to-fire speed is higher than other LMGs in the category, the huge accuracy boost provided by the Wenger stock and the Shrouded barrel means it's very easy to maintain focus on the target.

To deal with multiple enemies without the need to reload, the 72-round magazine is the perfect addition to the Lienna 57.

Overall, the Lienna 57 is perfect for dealing with opposition from a distance. However, the high sprint-to-fire speed can leave you vulnerable to any fast-moving submachine gunners which is where the rest of the loadout comes into play.

Best Warzone Lienna 57 perks and equipment

Once the best attachments are equipped onto the Lienna 57, finding a strong combination of perks and equipment is the next step to building the very best Warzone loadout. Here's what we recommend using alongside the LMG:

Perks

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

Double Time compensates for the decrease in mobility by doubling the length of Tactical Sprint. This enables you to navigate the map with ease.

The second perk to choose is Overkill in the first loadout followed by Ghost. Overkill allows you to use two primary weapons in the same loadout while another loadout with Ghost conceals your location from any enemy UAVs in the latter stages of a match. Remember to select the Overkill loadout before Ghost!

Last and by no means least is Amped. The increase in weapon swap speed makes it very easy to deal with anyone looking to use faster movement to their advantage.

Equipment

  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

Throughout Season 5, this has been the best combination of equipment to use. Throw semtex for some additional damage and use the stim for instant health regeneration and a temporary speed boost.

Is the Lienna 57 good in Warzone?

Although it's tricky to snap onto a nearby target, the Lienna 57 is extremely good to use in long-distance engagements. Depending on which guns receive a buff or a nerf, I can see this LMG filling the gap in the loadouts of several players.
