Are you searching for the ultimate FSS Hurricane loadout for Warzone 2? Don’t worry as we guide you through the perfect loadout with the optimal setup for dominating the terrains of Al Mazrah.

Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 has been a massive success worldwide. The direct sequel to Warzone Caldera, Warzone 2.0 features guns, equipment, and game mechanics from MW2. There are 70 weapons in MW2, which are also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 73 weapons, 13 of them are SMGs. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a perfect playing ground for ARs and Sniper Rifles. However, SMGs excel in close-range engagements. FSS Hurricane has found its place as the top weapon in the meta from the SMG class with its buff in the Season 3 update.

The FSS Hurricane is a top loading M4 platform SMG that has excellent fire rate and damage output. It is currently one of the best choices for close-range engagements. With the proper build, the FSS Hurricane can be turned into a sniper support weapon.

How to unlock the FSS Hurricane in Warzone 2.0

The FSS Hurricane is available when players level up FTAC Recon to level 16 CoD: Warzone 2.0, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon will also be unlocked. Players will have to level up their rank with the FSS Hurricane as they would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games to unlock some of the better attachments for the gun.

To rank up FSS Hurricane, keep playing Warzone 2 when it is equipped. While the FSS Hurricane will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by slaying enemies, taking down killstreaks, and completing contracts. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the FSS Hurricane if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2 match begins.

Best Equipment & Perks for FSS Hurricane Loadout


  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Semtex

Stim is a widely used tactical capable of providing instant heals, which can be life-saving in clutch situations. On the other hand, semtex is an excellent lethal that can serve as a breaching impact and flush out other players from cover.

Perk Package – Weapon Specialist

  • Base Perk -1: Overkill
  • Base Perk -2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor

The weapon specialist package is ideal for players who are calm and calculated. The base perks are Overkill and Strong Arm. Strong Arm grants players a stronger projectile-throwing power with a preview of the trajectory, while Overkill allows them to carry two primary weapons.

Furthermore, players can use Spotter for the bonus perk, which spots enemy equipment, field upgrades, and killstreaks through walls. Lastly, the ultimate perk is Survivor, which acts as a self-revive but in the form of a perk.

All the latest FSS Hurricane Buffs and Nerfs

The FSS Hurricane did not receive any buffs or nerfs recently. The current state of the weapon is balanced, according to many players within the CoD community. If the situation arises, the gun might get more tweaks in future updates to make it more balanced.

All the SMGs from Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 are different. They all excel in their fields depending on the build. Furthermore, the exact placement of the weapon in the current meta can be determined in the coming weeks as more players get their hands on the gun.

Other alternatives to the FSS Hurricane are Kastov-74u (AR), M4 (AR), and TAQ 56 (AR). TAQ 56 is one of the most powerful guns in Warzone 2’s current meta. As time progresses, more weapons will gain a stronger position in the meta.
