Best UGM-8 Loadout for Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded

Here we’ll showcase the best loadout for the UGM-8 updated for Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded of Call of Duty Warzone.

In the current Warzone meta, L.M.G.s are more dominant in a gunfight as they can always be trusted in long-range encounters. Unlike most other weapons in its class, the UGM-8 is a versatile L.M.G. with a burst fire mode and reasonable damage range. UGM-8 is the most recent addition to Vanguard’s weapon pool as it was released with the Season 4 Mercenaries of Fortune update.

The UGM-8 is a long barrel minigun. The weapon is potent in long-range gunfights, especially on the new Fortune’s Keep map. Moreover, clearing vast sightlines in the new map and dominating long-range gunfights in the terrains of Caldera will be a breeze using the proper loadout on this weapon.

Due to its effectiveness in most combat scenarios, the weapon has been in a good position in the meta following its release. With the new Fortune’s Keep and Caldera rework, the L.M.G. will surely help players dominate long-range gunfights with its excellent burst fire mode and damage output. If it turns out to be too effective, UGM-8 might receive a nerf in the forthcoming portion of season 4. The damage range might get reduced to keep it up to par with other L.M.G.s in the current weapon pool.

How to unlock the UGM-8 in CoD Warzone

The UGM-8 is a part of Call of Duty: Vanguard’s weapon pool. It is a Light Machine Gun (L.M.G.), an unlockable weapon available after reaching tier 31 of the current battle pass. It is part of the Season 4 Mercenaries of Fortune weapon line available to all players from day one of the update. It can be unlocked through purchasing skin bundles or completing challenges after the completion of Season 4.

The best tip for leveling up a battle pass in Call of Duty: Warzone is to spend more time in-game. The experience (XP) system in Warzone is pretty straightforward. The more time you spend in-game, the more XP you will gain. Additionally, completing daily and weekly challenges will provide extra XP, which will be helpful to level it up faster. After unlocking and leveling it up quickly, players can choose from various attachments.

MX Silencer and Romauld 560mm DA combine to reduce the recoil and sway of the UGM-8 with increased damage range. The Romauld 560mm DA barrel is the most critical attachment in this loadout as it modifies the barrel’s firing mode to burst-fire. The SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x is an optic sight that will allow the UGM-8 to be effective in long-range gunfights while providing 3-6x magnification. In addition, Fabric Grip will provide better-aiming stability and movement stats.

M1930 Strife Angled is a must for low recoil and long-range builds. It helps in controlling the recoil with ease. Lengthened ammo type provides increased bullet velocity while Quick perk increases mobility, making the player light on their feet when wielding the weapon. On top of that, Acrobatic increases fire speed while sprinting with better hip-fire accuracy.

As for the magazine, the .303 British 50 Round Fast Mags will do wonders with this gun, increasing the initial ammo capacity. With the fire rate, the weapon runs out of ammo faster while using the standard magazine that comes with the weapon. Ultimately, this loadout makes it an aggressive L.M.G. that complements rush and sniper playstyles. UGM-8 will be viable in mid-range and long-range gunfights.

Best Equipment & Perks for UGM-8 Loadout

Secondary: MP40 (Vanguard) or Kar98k (Modern Warfare)

Tactical: Stim (Modern Warfare), or Heartbeat Sensor (Modern Warfare)

Lethal: Throwing knives (Modern Warfare), or Proximity Mine (Modern Warfare)

Perk – 1: Quick Fix, or E.O.D

Perk – 2: Overkill

Perk – 3: Amped, or Combat Scout

Quick Fix is the ideal perk for players constantly engaging in gunfights, enabling health regeneration when an enemy is killed. Opting for E.O.D. is also feasible to take less damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire.

Overkill as the second perk is a must. Players can carry an extra primary weapon in the secondary slot. Pairing MP40 or Kar98k with this L.M.G. will make the loadout more potent, and the secondary will also help in handling both long to mid-range gunfights with ease. Our MP40 loadout focuses on a close-range S.M.G. build.

To swap between the weapons faster, Amped is the go-to. Faster switching between weapons will help in getting an edge over other players. Combat scout briefly highlights the whole team when an enemy player is shot.

As for tactical, stim gives an instant health regeneration upon use. The Heartbeat sensor can help track other players roaming nearby, and it will help players plan their next move more effectively. Throwing knives as lethal can be a lifesaver in a close gunfight.

It has a one-shot potential on players with a minimal level of armor. Moreover, immediately throwing a knife will eliminate the player regardless of the range it’s thrown from after downing a player. Proximity mine can be opted out for throwing knives to watch flank when stationary.
