While it has certainly gone down in popularity, the MG34 can still be viable. Here is the best Warzone MG34 loadout when battling in Season 5 of the Call of Duty battle royale.

The Season 5 meta currently sees the likes of the Krig 6 and OTs 9 at the top. However, the MG34 has continued to decline in use over the past year. Yet, every weapon can be viable if used correctly.

When it comes to LMGs in Warzone, many players prefer the Stoner 63. That’s because of the Stoner’s impeccable range, accuracy, and damage output. Check out our best Stoner 63 loadout guide for more info on this powerful LMG.

That being said, the MG34 has one of the lowest TTKs an LMG can offer. It’s a pretty deadly weapon and can be kitted to suit different playstyles. Here are the attachments and perks you need to use to build the best Warzone MG34 loadout.

Recoil and stability loadout

There are actually two ways that players build their best Warzone MG34 loadout and both suit different playstyles. The first suites a medium-range playstyle that boosts recoil control and stability in exchange for ADS speed.

  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake
  • Barrel: FSS Brute
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Optic: G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Rear Grip: Rubberized Grip Tape

This build is focused on keeping players fast and sacrifices range for speed and stability. The Muzzle Brake helps stabilize the MG34’s recoil.

There is a minimal loss of ADS speed, but it’s worth it to be able to stay on target while firing an LMGs large clip.

Again, players will be sacrificing some ADS speed when using the FSS Brute barrel. However, this barrel allows players to continue to output damage from an even greater distance.

To further increase the MG34’s stability and accuracy, we opt for the Commando Foregrip. As well, to help players control the LMGs recoil, we like to use the Rubberized Grip Tape.

Lastly, since this build isn’t focused on range, we like to use the G.I. Mini Reflex sight. It gives a clear picture of what you’re aiming at for a minimal loss of ADS speed.

Ranged loadout

This second build is more suited for those who want to wipe squads from a distance. One of the perks of using the MG34 is its unmatched damage range for an automatic weapon. With a 100 round mag, you could be mistaken for a mounted turret.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FSS Brute
  • Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Ammunition: 100 Round Belt

The Monolithic Suppressor keeps players hidden while also boosting the effective damage range. This is, along with the FSS Brute, is what makes the MG34 so deadly from far away.

Since players will be using this build from a distance, they will want to use the Ranger Foregrip. It helps with Recoil Control and Aiming Stability which improves long-range combat.

You’ll want to opt for the VLK 3.0x Optic to better see your targets. And equipping the 100 Round Belt will ensure you can finish off any squad that’s in your sights.

Best Perks to use with Warzone MG34 class

best perks for warzone MG34 loadout class perks
  • Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Battle Hardened

Some players would opt for Double Time for their blue perk, but we recommend Cold-Blooded. This negates the overpowered Combat Scout perk and also helps keep hunkered down players hidden.

Players will want to have Overkill equipped and set their secondary weapon a Riot Shield to protect themselves from being snuck up on. Then, players should get the Ghost perk from their next loadout to further avoid detection.

Lastly, the Battle Hardened perk will allow players to hunker down and defend a point without the fear of someone smoking them out.
