Putting together the best Striker loadout in Warzone is perfect for anyone looking for a lethal SMG with a solid balance of firepower and mobility. The Striker is particularly potent on Urzikstan as, unlike the WSP Swarm, it can hold its own at mid-range, which makes it significantly more versatile for those who want to solo-carry their matches.

Of course, to push the weapon to its absolute limits in Season 1 Reloaded, you need a meta setup where every attachment is optimised. Well, we've put together the best Striker loadout in Warzone that will provide you with the ultimate close-quarter gun for racking up kills.

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor S
  • Barrel: Striker Elite Long
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Rear Grip: SAKIN ZX Grip
  • Magazine: 48 Round Mag

Begin your Striker loadout with the Sonic Suppressor S for added bullet velocity and of course, extra damage range. On top of that, this muzzle will keep your gunfire off the radar, which is invaluable in Urzikstan.

Follow this up with the Striker Recon Long Barrel for an even bigger boost in bullet velocity and range, giving you the capabilities to fight foes from further away than your typical SMG.

Next, the Sakin ZX Grip is perfect for boosting your stability and ensuring recoil is never the reason you miss a shot on target. Mobility-wise, the No Stock attachment is unmatched and will give you a massive enhancement in ADS time, sprint to fire, and aim walking speed.

Finally, the 48-round Mag is just so you always have plenty of ammo to take on any opponents in your path.

  • Perk 1: Mountaineer
  • Perk 2: Double Time
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost


  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

Kick off your Perks with Mountaineer so you can negate fall damage and jump off ledges without the risk of dying immediately. This allows you to make aggressive outplays and rotate from a roof to the bottom floor of a building in milliseconds, allowing you to catch foes off-guard.

Next, Double Time is an absolute must as extra mobility for an SMG is essential for closing the gap on any sniper, LMG, or AR users. Tempered is also brilliant, as restoring plates faster during an intense gunfight can be the difference between life and death. Finally, Ghost keeps you off UAVs and radars, which is especially useful during endgames where remaining undetected can win you a match.

Equipment-wise, a Throwing Knife is top-tier for finishing off downed enemies instantly, and a Smoke Grenade will help with rotation and protect you from pesky roof campers.

How to unlock Striker in Warzone

To unlock the Striker in Warzone, you need to reach level 4 for custom loadouts. This shouldn't take you long at all and can be done in a few matches if you get enough kills.

The Striker's playstyle may not suit you in Warzone and if that's the case, then I recommend you check out the pint-sized WSP Swarm.

This SMG is far more aggressive than the Striker and instead specialises in close-quarter combat only. With a blistering TTK and absurdly good mobility, it fits perfectly for competitors who prefer to hunt down kills and put pressure on their opponents.

So, that's the best Striker loadout in Warzone. Be sure to check out our Warzone homepage and if you're looking for the best loadouts in the current meta, check out our WZ2 weapons tier list.
