When it comes to building the best Kastov 762 Warzone 2 loadout, it's key that the attachments push the AR's power to its limits. With a blistering TTK and the potential to completely dominate foes from a distance, the Kastov 762 is a deadly threat in WZ2.

Although the Kastov has been hit with some hefty nerfs in the recent Season 6 update, it remains a top-tier pick with the correct build.

Of course, in order to push the weapon to the limits and give you the best chance at defeating your enemies, you'll need a top-tier Kastov 762 loadout in Warzone 2 and luckily, we've got you covered.

  • Muzzle: SAKIN TREAD-40
  • Barrel: KAS-10 584MM
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High-Velocity
  • Magazine: 40-Round Mag

For starters, you'll want to equip the SAKIN TREAD-40 muzzle for increased vertical and horizontal recoil control. Make sure to follow this up with the KAS-10 584MM barrel, which will give you better ADS time for snapping onto enemies and an extra boost of movement speed.

The Kastov 762's lethal TTK needs to be paired with velocity so you can effectively eliminate foes from afar, so the 7.62 High-Velocity ammunition is a must.

While optics always come down to preference, the SZ RECHARGE-DX is a top-tier choice for laser-beaming foes from long distances.

Finally, round off the Kastov 762 loadout with the 40-round Mag to ensure you never run out of ammo and can kill multiple opponents without needing to reload.

  • Perk 1: Overkill
  • Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert


  • Lethal: Grenade
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

In terms of perks, we recommend going with Overkill as it gives you access to a second primary weapon. This is essential with the Kastov 762 as the gun is built for mid to long-range, so having a meta SMG is invaluable.

Next, Battle Hardened is brilliant for shrugging off stuns and flashes if you want to push an enemy aggressively to chase down a kill. After that, Fast Hands is a top-tier choice, as it allows you to switch to your secondary during intense skirmishes almost instantly.

For your Ultimate perk, High Alert is incredibly strong for avoiding danger before it's too late.

Finally, a Grenade in the lethal slot will always be useful for putting pressure on foes and a Stun Grenade is amazing for catching enemies off-guard.

If the Kastov 762 has a little too much recoil for your taste or just doesn't fit your style of play, then the M13B may be a better option in the current meta.

Currently sitting as the second most popular AR in Warzone 2, the M13B is a complete laser on Al Mazrah and Vondel.

The gun locks onto enemies from afar and makes wiping squads incredibly easy. Its power is reflected in its 8.3% pick rate.
