Are you looking for the best RAAL LMG 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 73 weapons in MW2, which are also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 73 weapons, 6 of them are LMGs. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a perfect playing ground for LMGs. The RAAL LMG has managed to rise the ranks in Warzone 2.0’s meta, making it the ultimate beaming machine.

The Reconnaissance Auxiliary Assault Lightweight Machine Gun uses titanium construction, a low fire rate, and a reciprocating barrel to mitigate the powerful .338 recoil. Like its predecessor variant, the RAAL LMG is an excellent LMG for long-range engagements in Al Mazrah.

How to unlock the RAAL LMG in Warzone 2.0

The RAAL LMG is available when players reach player level 25 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 RAAL LMG 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 RAAL LMG. While the RAAL LMG 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 RAAL LMG if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2.0 match begins.

Best Equipment & Perks for RAAL LMG 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.
