Warzone Pacific Season 2 is finally here, bringing changes to Caldera and 30 highly-requested quality of life changes. We’ve also got a new Assault Rifle with the KG M40, so here are the attachments and Perks needed to build the best KG M40 loadout.

The second major content drop for Vanguard and Warzone Pacific is finally here. Season 2 has brought significant changes to Warzone’s battle royale including Redeploy Balloons, new gas bullets, and 30 highly-requested quality of life features.

But perhaps most exciting is the new weapons, the KG M40 Assault Rifle and Whitley LMG. The new AR is already being recognized for its extremely low recoil, so we’ve got everything you need to build the best KG M40 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 2.

Best Warzone KG M40 loadout attachments

Best Warzone KG M40 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Krausnick 12V
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: .30-06 50 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Proficiency: Tight Grip
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

We’re kicking off this KG M40 loadout with the MX Silencer to help with recoil control and keep you hidden from the minimap when firing. Then, the Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded will improve further improve recoil control, but also give the KG M40 much more bullet velocity and range.

To make this KG M40 loadout even more accurate, the Krausnick 12V Stock and M1941 Hand Stop almost eliminate all recoil, allowing you to beam enemies across Caldera with ease. Then, the .30-06 50 Round Drums and Lengthened ammo give you more bullets and improve its range even further.

Combining the Polymer Grip and Tight Grip Perk allow your KG M40 to get more accurate the longer you fire. Then, Fully Loaded will give you all the ammo you need.

And finally, the choice of Optic is really up to you, but the G16 2.5x suits a wide range of playstyles and setups.

Best Perks & Equipment to use with Warzone KG M40

EOD Perk in Call of Duty Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Ghost / High Alert
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

If you’re playing in the Vanguard Royale playlist, then you don’t need to use Ghost as UAVs can’t be bought from Buy Stations anymore so they’ll be much less frequent. So, we recommend using Ghost in standard Battle Royale and High Alert in Vanguard Royale.

Explosives are as lethal as ever in Warzone Season 2’s Caldera, so you’ll need E.O.D to survive any grenades, rockets, or Semtex chucked your way. Combat Scout remains the perfect Perk for Caldera, as you’ll be able to track enemies through the trees and dense vegetation.

For Equipment, the Throwing Knife is handy for quickly killing downed enemies, and the Stim will replenish your health and allow you to move much faster.

How to unlock KG M40 in Warzone

Best alternatives to the KG M40 in Warzone

If you haven’t unlocked the KG M40 yet, the Bren has proved to still be a powerful choice even after getting nerfed again in the Season 2 update. Some of the Cold War weapons are still more than viable too, with the XM4 remaining a top-tier choice.

Genius Warzone trick completely counters getting stuck by Thermites

Getting stuck with a Thermite in Warzone usually means certain death, but a genius trick is allowing players to survive a fiery demise.

Warzone Caldera thermite trick Season 3 Reloaded

Getting stuck with a Thermite has traditionally meant a swift death, but if you react quickly, this genius Warzone trick will allow you to survive the tricky situation.

While most Warzone players will be trying to figure out how the meta has changed following the Season 3 Reloaded update, one player has made a discovery that could be useful to players with quick reflexes.

Warzone’s Lethal Equipment options can prove difficult to handle in enemy hands. Perhaps none are as frightening as the Thermite, a piece of Lethal Equipment that can down you in seconds. However, a genius Warzone trick has revealed the ultimate counter for enemy Thermites.

Trophy System in Warzone Pacific

Thermite is designed to stick to any surface on impact and burn whatever it touches for a short period of time. When stuck to a Warzone Operator, Thermite usually burns through armor and knocks the player down, setting up an easy kill.

Up until Season 3 Reloaded, getting stuck with a Thermite meant certain death, but a clip posted to the Warzone subreddit demonstrates a genius trick for escaping death by Thermite.

The clip shows how a player stuck with a Thermite is saved from its clutches by throwing a Trophy System. The key factor here is that the Trophy System was thrown after the player got stuck with the Thermite, which proves that Trophy Systems can destroy Thermites after they stick to players.

As the player who posted the clip explains, “You can clearly see the hitmarker the trophy gives off when it detonates a lethal, point here being I didn’t know it can save a guy from certain death like this dude here.”

Several players in the comments claimed that they had no idea this was possible and that they’d look to add the trick to their repertoire, “gonna have to remember now to throw a trophy if I have it on me and get stuck lol.”

It seems keeping a Trophy System by your side could get you out of a tricky situation if used correctly.

Incredible Warzone 2 art uses leaks to reveal what new map could look like

With the help of leaks, one Call of Duty fan has developed an image of what believe the Warzone 2 map could look like.

After various leaks and even the reveal of Modern Warfare 2, one creative fan in the community has developed fan art of what the Warzone 2 map could look like.

Call of Duty fans have received a lot of new information on both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 over the last month. As well as leaks surrounding Modern Warfare 2, we also got new details on the Warzone 2 map, including leaks surrounding the potential POIs.

One CoD fan took these leaks and created some incredible art for what the Warzone 2 map could look like if the leaks are accurate.

Reddit user EMADALDEN221 made their own Warzone 2 map based on the POI leaks that suggested some classic MW2 maps such as Quarry and Highrise could be included.

The recreated map images we’ve seen so far haven’t been as detailed as this one, and although this is just a creation by someone in the community, it’s based on leaks from reliable sources.

The design created by the Reddit user shares similarities to Verdansk, and those who aren’t fans of Caldera may be happy about this. For starters, the map is not an island, but rather a part of a much bigger bit of land.

The fan-made map definitely has more of a Blackout vibe, with bright colors and a focus on greenery, which wasn’t seen too much on Verdansk.

We’ll have to wait and see how accurate this depiction is when Warzone 2’s map is officially revealed.

JGOD explains why his H4 Blixen loadout is meta in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

Top Warzone YouTuber JGOD explained how the new H4 Blixen fits right in the SMG meta and gave his recommended loadout.

JGOD and H4 Blixen SMG in Warzone

The H4 Blixen SMG is brand-new to Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded, and it’s already set to shake up the meta. Top Warzone YouTuber JGOD has explained why his loadout is a meta pick.

On top of all Warzone Season 3 Reloaded‘s major weapon balance changes, new squad HUD, and Underground Transit System, it introduced the H4 Blixen SMG, also referred to as the Carl Gustaf M/45.

Although the H4 Blixen currently has a frustrating glitch where it has a fire delay after sprinting, reloading, using equipment, and plating, the devs have confirmed a fix is in the works. YouTuber JGOD believes that after it’s fixed, the Blixen has the time to kill stats to join the SMG meta.

JGOD revealed how the Blixen has the TTK stats to compete with all of the meta SMGs such as the Armaguerra, Owen Gun, Welgun, and the Type 100. Describing it as a “high damage weapon,” he compared its TTK to these meta builds and discovered that it fits right in.

JGOD explained how it’s right in the middle of the SMG meta, where there are some weapons that kill faster but are harder to control, and others that are easier to control but don’t kill quite as fast.

If you’re bored of the other Vanguard SMGs or can’t quite find one that suits your playstyle, unlocking the H4 Blixen will be worth your time.

JGOD meta H4 Blixen loadout

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Jonsson 9″ RMK
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Fleet
  • Perk 2: Quick

For the most part, JGOD’s H4 Blixen loadout is the standard build for Vanguard SMGs. Combining the Recoil Booster with the Jonsson 9″ RMK damage barrel vastly increases its time-to-kill, and the other attachments are for recoil control and mobility.

You do have a couple of options, though. He explained that you might be better off with the 7.62 Gorenko 36 Round Mags when playing Solos and Duos, as you’ll only be taking on one or two players at a time.

Ammunition choice is also flexible, where Lengthened, Hollow Point, or Subsonic are all viable options. These ammo types will make the Blixen’s range either a little bit better or a little bit worse, and Subsonic will hide your shots from the minimap.
