Are you curious about the best MTZ-556 loadout for Warzone 2.0? Then rest assured, we will show you the best loadout with the optimal setup for dominating Urzikstan.

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 103 weapons in MW2, which are also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 103 weapons, 22 of them are Assault Rifles. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a ballpark for Battle Rifles. From the Battle Rifle class, the MTZ-556 is rising up the ranks of the AR meta.

The MTZ-556 is the most balanced AR of Warzone 2.0’s current meta. It is the equivalent of the OG Kilo 141. If you’re an AR enthusiast then we recommend using our ultimate MTZ-556 loadout to pick off enemies in Urzikstan and Resurgence.

How to Unlock MTZ-556

The MTZ-556 is available when players reach level 25 in CoD: Warzone 2.0, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon is unlocked. To unlock some of the better attachments for the gun, players must level up their rank with the MTZ-556 as players would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games.

To rank up MTZ-556, keep playing Warzone 2.0 when it is equipped. While the MTZ-556 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 MTZ-556 if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2.0 match begins.
