Best Warzone UGM-8 Loadout And Attachments

Best Warzone UGM-8 Loadout And Attachments

The best Warzone UGM-8 loadouts stand out amongst the light machine gun (LMG) weapon class. This new Warzone Season 4: Mercenaries of Fortune LMG is surprisingly mobile with a high fire rate — and with the right attachments — quite deadly. The best Warzone UGM-8 loadouts listed below will set you up for success with Call of Duty's newest weapon.

How To Unlock The UGM-8 In Warzone And Vanguard

To the delight of Warzone and Vanguard players all around, unlocking the UGM-8 LMG is not tied to completing any tedious challenges. Instead, all you need to do is reach Tier 31 in Season 4: Mercenaries of Fortune Battle Pass. The UGM-8 is a free reward for reaching Tier 31.

Alternatively, players not interested in waiting or working through the Battle Pass can opt to purchase a Store Bundle, like the Shattered Dreams Bundle, that includes a UGM-8 Blueprint. And if you don't end up reaching Tier 31 during Season 4, there will be an LMG-based unlock challenge available later on to those that missed out on the UGM-8 the first time around.

 

Best Warzone UGM-8 Loadouts: Ballistic Beaming

While the UGM-8 is advertised as a mobile LMG with a high fire rate, those attributes are irrelevant if you can't actually land any shots with it. With that, this Warzone UGM-8 loadout is designed around buffing the LMG's accuracy, damage, range, and control.

The attachments listed below offer substantial boosts to the UGM-8's accuracy, damage, range, and control. In-game, this UGM-8 loadout will feel like you're shooting a laser beam. Pair it together with the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x optic and this LMG is more than capable of winning gunfights at any and all ranges.

Keep in mind that this Warzone UGM-8 loadout does suffer in the mobility category. While it is not as slow as other LMGs, the attachments required to boost its accuracy and control come at the cost of mobility. But if you're fine posting up and holding down buildings and other power positions, this UGM-8 loadout will mow hordes of enemies down with ease.

  • Muzzle: Mx Silencer
  • Barrel: Bernard XL214 736mm
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Mercier WT Ancre
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: .303 British 75 Round Box
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

Best Warzone UGM-8 Loadouts: Spray And Pray

This Warzone UGM-8 loadout is all about spraying and praying. By default, the UGM-8 LMG excels in the mobility and fire rate categories. But add on these attachments, and you'll be able to unload relentless waves of ammunition toward your opposition.

The 6.5mm Sakura 125 Round Box gives you access to a seemingly never-ending magazine of ammunition. Gung-ho will let you fire the powerful UGM-8 LMG while sprinting and FMG Rounds will allow you to penetrate the surfaces your fleeing opponents are hiding behind.

The remaining attachments focus on boosting the UGM-8's mobility, hip-fire accuracy, and fire rate even higher, with marginal nerfs to categories like range. In fact, this UGM-8 loadout actually buffs accuracy and control slightly.

This Warzone UGM-8 loadout is built for aggressive slayers looking to run rampant with a weapon that can decimate anyone and anything in its path.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Mercier Port 635mm
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 125 Round Box 
  • Ammunition: FMJ Rounds
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Perk 1: Gung-ho
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Best Warzone UGM-8 Loadouts: Perks And Equipment

To enhance the UGM-8 LMG's patent mobility even further, we recommend Double-Time Perk in the Perk 1 slot and Stims as your Tactical. But in all honesty, the UGM-8 still can't compete with the Warzone best SMGs when it comes to runnin' and gunnin'. For that reason, it's a good idea to use Overkill and pair the UGM-8 with something like one of the Warzone best Marco 5 loadouts. And to make it easier to swap between your killing tools faster, equip Amped as your third Perk.

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Marco 5
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

That's everything you need to forge the best Warzone UGM-8 loadout. Take over the Warzone Fortune's Keep map with this new high-flying LMG.
