Are you looking for the best ISO Hemlock loadout for Warzone 2? Then rest assured, as we show you 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 Assault Rifles. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a perfect playing ground for ARs. The ISO Hemlock, the game’s newest AR has caught the attention of CoD enthusiasts.

ISO Hemlock is a compact AR with a high fire rate and damage output. It was also one of the best ARs in MW (2019). With the correct build, this AR can be turned into the perfect long-range weapon. So, without further ado, let’s look at the best ISO Hemlock loadout for Warzone 2.0 Season 4.

How to unlock the ISO Hemlock in Warzone 2.0

The ISO Hemlock is available when players reach Sector B11 of the Season 2 Battle Pass in CoD: Warzone 2.0, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon will also be unlocked. To unlock some of the better attachments for the gun, players will have to level up their rank with the ISO Hemlock as players would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games.

Keep playing Warzone 2.0 when the gun is equipped to rank up ISO Hemlock. While the ISO Hemlock will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by using it to slay enemies, take down killstreaks, and complete contracts. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the ISO Hemlock if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2.0 match begins.

Best Equipment & Perks for ISO Hemlock 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 excellent for calm and calculated players. 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, for the bonus perk, players can use Spotter, 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.
