Best LMG builds for Call of Duty Warzone season 2

Every squad needs a heavy.

If you’re searching for the best LMG builds in Call of Duty Warzone, there are a few excellent options. LMGs are perfect for mid-to-long-range engagements, breaking armor quickly and eliminating enemies before they can flee the scene. With such a high damage output and slow mobility, the best builds play into an LMG’s strengths.

For the current Warzone season 2 alongside Modern Warfare 3, these LMGs have the fastest time-to-kill while still maintaining elite accuracy and good enough mobility to get around the map.

Holger 26 LMG best build for Warzone

Right now, the Holger 26 is one of the best LMGs available in Warzone. This particular weapon is already more mobile than most in its class. As a result, it might be a better option for players who like to constantly move around the map quickly searching for action.

Here’s the best way to build your loadout:

  • VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor Muzzle
  • Holger Factory Barrel
  • Bruen Heavy Support Grip Underbarrel
  • Ascent Lord Stock
  • Corio Eagleseye 2.5x, this is the preferred optic of many high-level players for accuracy and stabilization, but you can swap it out for your favorite optic.

Bruen MK9 LMG best build for Warzone

Next, the Bruen MK9 is another of the best options in the LMG class. Like the Holger, it’s naturally a bit more mobile than many other heavy weapons. This makes it a good high-movement and speed option for players who use that playstyle. You may remember the original Bruen meta back in Warzone 1, this build is similar, using the 60-round magazine for extra mobility.

  • VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor Muzzle
  • Bruen Heavy Support Grip Underbarrel
  • 60 Round Mag
  • STIP-40 Grip (Rear)
  • Corio Eagleseye 2.5x Optic

The Pulemyot 762 has been a viable long-range option in Modern Warfare 3‘s Warzone for some time. With recent updates changing weapons all around again, this LMG is a fantastic option again. It’s not quite as mobile as the other two, but using this loadout it’ll have virtually zero recoil along with high damage output. What more can you really ask for?

  • VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor Muzzle
  • JAK Annihilator Long Barrel
  • JAK Annihilator Bullpup Kit (Conversion Kit)
  • Commando D-15 Recoil Reduction (Stock)
  • Corio Eagleseye 2.5X

All of these LMGs use the same suppressor and a few other similar attachments. It’s clear these are the best options for whichever weapon you choose. Sources like True Game Data provide insight into how fast each weapon will kill an enemy with specific attachments equipped. Builds like these provide excellent time-to-kill, ensuring you don’t lose a gunfight because of power, while also adding controllable recoil and excellent mobility.
