Utilising the best Warzone SO-14 loadout in Season 4 is a surefire way of scoring plenty of kills throughout a Warzone match. With Season 4 Reloaded on the horizon, fans dropping into the action are always on the hunt to gain the upper hand over the opposition and this particular battle rifle is proving popular.

Armed with fully and semi-automatic firing mechanisms, the SO-14 packs a deadly punch and in some scenarios, it outperforms a number of popular assault rifles currently setting the meta alight. Once a strong attachment combination is selected, it's very easy to down and eliminate opponents in the blink of an eye.

But, before we take a closer look at the best Warzone SO-14 loadout, take a look at our Warzone guides showcasing the best AR and when the next double XP event is taking place.

What is the best Warzone SO-14 loadout?

  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Barrel: 22" Boremaster Barrel
  • Optic: Hybrid Firepoint
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

This particular build provides massive improvements in range and accuracy which is noticeable during the heat of battle. Although the mobility and handling levels take a slight hit, the SO-14 is more than capable of shredding through opponents with ease.

Best Warzone SO-14 attachments

With such a wide variety of Warzone attachments available in the gunsmith, finding the strongest combination is a tricky task. After some testing, we've found a set of five that's perfect for semi-auto and fully-automatic action.

  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Barrel: 22" Boremaster Barrel
  • Optic: Hybrid Firepoint
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

The recoil control comes from the combination of the Lockshot KT85 muzzle and the 22" Boremaster barrel. The SO-14 is notorious for its tricky recoil pattern but with these two equipped, it's much easier to ensure your shots hit the target every single time.

To ensure you never run out of ammunition, the 50 Round Mag comes into its own. Using such a huge magazine means you can tackle a number of targets without the need to dip out of the action and reload.

Best Warzone SO-14 perks and equipment

Once the best SO-14 attachments are ready, it's time to select a perk package and equipment combination that enhances your performance on the battlefield even further. Here's what we recommend in Season 4.


  • Base: Bomb Squad
  • Base: Overkill
  • Bonus: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate: High Alert

The SO-14 isn't the best in close-quarters combat so we've selected Overkill as one of the two base perks. Alongside the SO-14, we recommend using the ISO 45 submachine gun for some additional mobility and firepower.


  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Smoke grenade

Semtex is an excellent piece of equipment to use thanks to its versatility. Stick it to a moving vehicle for an explosive result or throw it near a nearby target to crack armour without wasting bullets.

For a tactical, smoke grenades continue to prove popular. Throw it for some extra cover when rotating or to conceal an escape from a sticky situation.

Is the SO-14 good in Warzone?

Despite it never managing to break through into the meta in recent seasons, the SO-14 is currently one of the best weapons in the entire game. The deadly damage combined with its ease of use makes it an ideal competitor to other assault rifles.
